Bills to Pay
Paramount security, currently headed up by the unpleasantly shrewd Electra Theodorides, has been a major player in South America for years now. It’s sad, fitting, or both (depending on who you ask) that the assorted communist revolutions in South America were brutally put down by a privatized, multi-national security company. Their paramilitary wing is massive, about a third the size of their conventional police forces. They wear the same uniform across the globe, flat gray with integrated armor that doesn’t bother dissembling about its military ancestry. Their logo, the white outline of a mountain peak, is all that adorns their patrol cars and other vehicles.
They’ve sited their headquarters, and the epicenter of their expansion, near the coast and about in the middle of the sprawl’s North to South extent. They’ve made no secret of the general aims of their plans, identifying rings of Hoods that they’ll be taking over in sequence. The specifics remain, of course, unknown.
