In reality this is yet another Syndicate front built up just for personal support for Alexandra Hadley.

I do not control people just because I can. That would be waste of purpose. I also do not control people just because of profit. That would be waste of potential. As a Resource Controller of Syndicate it is my firm belief that that the benefit of the whole system is best served when I control people to tap them for their full potential, whether that be profit, pleasure, advancement, enlightenment or all of them.
A former corporate lawyer and an expert in evading federal taxes. Alexandra Hadleys old accomplice who lost his right to practice law already several years ago, but remains in the employment of Ms. Hadley whom he "knows" to be working for Mafia. Solemnly believes to have been mixed up in business that would guarantee him several consecutive life-sentences if the feds ever came down on it. Still, he doesn't really know where the "bodies are buried" and thus has no information valuable enough to buy him a way out of it either.
The cash flow is good, I'll transfer the money right away. You should be seeing 3577,85 dollars as tax returns on your expenses account, a sum of 4580,75 dollars reimbursed to the american express credit line for conference fees and I'll wire the rest over by Western Union in hour.
Hadley Risk Managements secretary and public relations specialist. An economist somewhere in her thirties who takes care of the daily management of HRM and is at the same time doing research on media sciences under Alexandra Hadleys support. Is well-aware of Syndicate and has ambitions to get forward but has previously lacked the organizationals skills and ruthlesness to advance past the low-level jobs she is holding. Constantly spends more money that she can earn and is thus completely dependant on Alexandra Hadley to keep her personal economy afloat. Has recently made some real progress by managing the takeover of Blythe Garage and McNorben Services. At the moment Hadley is keeping her occupied with several tests to see if she has what it takes to make real progress in the Syndicate.
No, no, I'll do it now. Just wait fifteen minutes and you get all the data. Meanwhile could you fix my credit card balance? Please? I'll do anything, I swear.
A financing researcher in his early forties. Is married to Alexandra whom he met through Syndicate.

Hi honey. Yeah, its been a long. Sure, I'll miss you. Of course I do. See you at the sunday dinner.
A young south-korean hacker who keeps the HRM servers running. In addition to being constantly on-call for any IT-related emergencies he is consuming copious amounts of increasingly strange pornographics and tends to hang out on-line late playing video games. Is psychologically addicted to the broadband width and data storages capacities only working for Technocracy could ever provide him. Is well aware of Syndicate and the fact that Alexandra Hadleys influence is the only thing standing between him and federal charges related to the contents of his hard-drive.
What? Another layer of code? Are you sure, this things already got protections as thick as walls of Ulduar... What? Nevermind, I'll explain sometimes... Sure, I'll get to it.
A transports and logistics chief who has several decades of wroking experience and knows all the tricks of trade of Mexico - US cross-border logistics whether legal or not. Is not quite ruthless enough to be deep in organized crime himself but is dishonest and greedy enough to be used by one. Originally Alexanra Hadley had him under control by knowing a tad too much about Antonnos illegal busineses and the sexual orientation of his daughter. Currently is on a very short leash and is afraid to lose her daughter if Ms. Hadley divulges a few choice bits of information on exactly what happened in to his daughter in Miami some time ago.
One standard size shipping container coming over today at 2300 hours. Just make sure they get its unloaded right away... Yeah, its a bit hot today. Thats why I'm worried about them. I'll trust this'll be at usual rate?

She is also one of the few who can claim to know Alexandra Hadley outside work and she is forever grateful to her for fixing things in Miami and keeping the information under wraps.
Okay, I'll come over to show the figures, but I can't stay very late tonight. Yeah, I got to be in downtown tomorrow at nine... Okay, I'll bring a bottle on my way. Red, right?
