Marcus Beckett The Director
Marcus was an analyst and machine programmer before being recruited for The Cartel by [REDACTED] in 34AF, becoming Director in 40AF. He is analytical and has negotiated dozens of treaties and trade deals between rival factions in his career. He views society as a great machine. “If the machine is set up properly, it doesn’t matter where the parts came from. They can all work together in harmony.” His detractors often use that line against him, insinuating that he has a habit of dehumanizing people. As Director, Beckett is the face of The Cartel for the public. He is considering retirement in the near future.
