A private military corporation known for its advanced weaponry, loose morals, and “shoot first” mentality, Marshall is one of the most profitable—and most dangerous—companies in the world. They have government contracts across the globe, stalwarts of the Cold War military-industrial complex.
Their mercenary teams provide clients with black-ops, wetworks, and… well, “war crimes” is a strong word, but it’s not entirely inaccurate. Their army of lawyers is just as deadly in the boardroom as their soldiers are on the battlefield. And with the technological advances being churned out by their R&D department, they can confidently claim the edge in any conflict they get involved in. Marshall moved their HQ to Santo Ileso in the 1980s when they acquired several major defense contractors in the region. Though most of their business is international, they have many local clients–banks, casinos, museums, shopping centers, as well as city and county governments—for whom they provide private security and related services. This is not just a revenue stream. It’s also good marketing.
After all, Santo Ileso isn’t the most stable of cities; if Marshall can’t maintain peace in their own home town, how can they convince international clients they can maintain peace in an occupied territory? This means that the security services Marshall provides for local businesses… aren’t always entirely voluntary. The line between “private security” and “protection racket” can be pretty thin.
None of this, of course, is the face that Marshall presents to the world. Thanks to Marshall’s relentless PR team, they have a sterling public reputation as investors, innovators, peace-keepers, and civic-minded philanthropists. That’s their story, and they’re sticking to it. At gunpoint, if necessary.
Atticus Marshall may play the part of an old-time, folksy, gentleman rancher, but don’t let that fool you. He’s a cutthroat businessman and a raging narcissist. Get on his good side, and he’s your best friend; say one thing he doesn’t like, and he’ll destroy you. He talks a good game about gentility, honor, and decency, but talk is as far as he goes; at the end of the day, people are entirely expendable to him. As head of the massively successful Marshall Defense Industries, Atticus sells advanced weaponry, high tech military hardware, and full blown private armies to individuals and governments around the world. Which means he’s got both the money and the power to bring down anyone who gets in his way…
