Joesph Maxwell Thurmond
Gigatech Applied Robotic's Brilliant and Charismatic CEO
Joesph Maxwell Thurmond was born and raised a spacer in one of the early deep space colonies. From a young age he began to display a unique affinity and understanding of electronics and robotics. Joesph’s first steps onto the road of his meteoric rise were the developement of a cyberneticly enhanced prosthetic limb. His father was a deep space asteroid miner. One day during a drill, an accident severely injured his father, crippling his leg. Unable to work, his father struggled to support the family with the meager income he could find at odd jobs. Joesph, determined fix the situation, spent months working on and perfecting a replacement limb for his father. His final results, while unpolished, displayed remarkable leaps in technology. He was quickly recruited by Gendyne and put to work refining his design, which soon became known as the Gendyne type 2 Cybernetic Replacement Limb. This was the first of it’s kind and brought in much renown for Joesph and much revenue for Gendyne. However, it was not to last and in 2052, Joesph broke away from Gendyne and launched his own company, taking many key players from his section with him. Gendyne was staggered from this blow, and but was unable to retaliate as resources were stretched thin fending off competitors looking to capitalize on their weakened state. By the time Gendyne was able to focus on dealing with Joesph, Gigatech was well entrenched and no longer a viable target. However Gendyne’s board of directors has not forgotten and looks for any opportunity possible to repay Gigatech back. These days, Joesph still spends equal times in the development lab, and in the public spotlight, ever driving his company on to new levels of success.
