Episode 1: Hostility Begins

The board room was quiet. The lead holders of Khan Industries, LLC, sat around the wide oaken table, each waiting for the CEO to speak. Ambrose Khan, the Chief Executive Officer of the world’s largest arms corporation, cut an impressive figure. His suit perfectly pressed, his iron-grey hair perfectly in place.
