People of the NAQZ.
|Dr. A. Shane Towers Director
|The power behind (and in front of) the throne for the Department of Scientific Intelligence, Dr. Towers is well known in the US's Department of Defense as a man that gets results. Having managed the NAQZ since its inception, Towers seemingly knows just about everything that goes on within its fences. His partnerships with a number of private companies have yielded much of the NAQZ's defenses. Rather than hideout in DSI's makeshift HQ, Towers is often seen leading investigations into the NAQZ's numerous incidents and issues. His most prominent staff includes Watch Captain Arliss "Arlo" Wallace, Ward Captain Oscar Scarlett, and Special Agent Dr. Aileen Cole. Before heading up the then newly-created DSI, Towers served as the Deputy Director of the CIA's Office of Science and Technology. Such history has led to a bit of professional rivalry with DOD colleagues that remain with the Company- namely CIA Director Emerson Brown.
Vice President of
|The official liaison between P15 and DSI, Levi Morris is often known as Dr. Towers' left hand. With the NAQZ as one very particular testing ground for Phosphor's experimental technologies, Levi is a busy, busy man. Gregarious and visionary, he is known to mediate and broker unconventional agreements between disparate parties. There's no motivator like enlightened self interest, after all. Levi is the driving force behind Phosphor's Next Big Thing, the P7 personal defense device. Unlike his family members that make up many of the Board of Directors' positions at the company, Levi is often seen 'in the trenches.' .|
Research & Development
|Serving as Phosphor Polytechnical's senior official in the NAQZ, Memphis is said to report directly to P15 chairman, his older brother Ashton Morris, II. Memphis is exact in his words, taciturn, and deeply involved in the company's work with DSI and the NAQZ. Memphis controls the company's more experimental and unconventional interests and represents those interests to DSI, as P15's liaison to the Department of Defense.|
