Professor Sadi is MacGyver’s old Archaeology professor. Considered by MacGyver as one of the last Swashbuckling archaeologists; he was more at home with thieves and smugglers than academics. He oversaw a dig in Turkey which MacGyver took part in as a student and, in MacGyver’s own words, “he taught me some of the more colorful ways to discover history.” Since moving on from teaching Archaeology he is now a curator at the Cairo Museum.
MacGyver visited the Professor while on the hunt for Pierre Lamont. It was the professors information and archaeological dig journals which gave MacGyver Pierre’s real name of Claude Martell.
