Vaughn King: Vaughn King is the founder of the Corporation to End Terrorist Activity. A no-nonsense engineering genius, he is also the father of the eidetic bio-link program: Suggestion. Pioneering this device which can turn specially trained soldiers into self-contained armies, he hopes to perfect a system which will completely nullify casualties in the dangerous fight against terrorism. Having known and worked closely with Ayame for the past 10 years, much of their work shrouded in secrecy that kept her from family and friends, King has assumed an almost fatherly relationship with his unique and talented protegee. While he is warm in nature, he is very dry and formal. His one visible quirk being the brightly colored sneakers he wears which match his vibrant blue and green parrot feathers, both which stand in stark contrast to his pressed lab-coat and slacks.
