Protectors of Emerald City
This man strikes an intimidating figure, and does not look like someone you should cross. His hair is black and usually combed back, and he wears an expensive black leather jacket with a tailored suit beneath.
Thomas Arkman is the CEO and owner of The Arkman Institute for Scientific Advancement and Research (TAISAR). He is more of a businessman than a scientist, though he has a keen eye for profitable technology.
Arkman has been accused of shady business practices in the past, but this has never led to anything more than slander charges against the accuser. He ensures all technology developed at TAISAR is patented, so that to continue their life’s work researchers cannot leave the institute. This is sometimes used as a strategy to recruit scientists who are infringing on TAISAR’s patents.
