Hermes Conrad is a certified 37th class bureaucrat and is married to LaBarbara Conrad. He is an expert limboist, so much so he represented earth in the 2980 Olympics but his competition was tragically cut short when a fan, trying to be just like Hermes, limboed too low and broke his back. Feeling partly responsible, Hermes never limboed again. Even from an early age Hermes was identified as a potential bureaucrat. While professor Farnsworth owns the Planet Express company, Hermes is more involved in the day to day running of it, handling the finances, notifying next of kin etc. He was previously a 36th class bureaucrat. Hermes and LaBarbara have a son called Dwight.
