"Imagine you are born into a room with no windows or doors. What would you truly know? Only your experience of that place. What would change if you knew there was a whole world beyond? Would it change you? " ― Damien, Introduction to Astral Planes 101

Damien Masaru is President of the mysterious Megacorporation Talaris presiding over corporate operations on Corvanis 3.

Damien is best known publicly as a thought leader in magical research. He's published several renowned academic papers. His specialties are astral projection and extraplanar entities. His thesis on the astral is the currently accepted authority on the subject.

Professionally, Damien has created several new Talaris product lines in Savior City. Advertising magical enhancement in everything from beauty to fitness, these products are sometimes criticized for questionable MLM tactics and a lack of empirical data that shows their efficacy. These products have brought billions into Talaris in recent years.

He is also known as an accomplished academic mage. He speaks on Atlantis media, at corporate events, and at schools concerning magical theory. Certain tabloids have claimed that Damien possesses immense magic knowledge, others say that his work is only theoretical. Sensationalist media claims that Talaris seeks to control the darker powers of magic under his leadership. No proof of this has ever been found.

Origin

It's known that Damien was born into a wealthy family. He attended a Talaris-sponsored school for aspiring corporate mages.

In the Holonet Documentary "The Strange Tale of Talaris" it is said that Damien once ran the Talaris division for corporate surveillance and astral projection research. He moved quickly through the ranks to Senior Management after several supposed breakthroughs. He was invited to lead Talaris by the corporate board after a few years in Senior Management.

History

Product production line

Though his work as President of Talaris is speculated on, Talaris' profits have increased substantially under his watch. New product lines he has introduced include:

  • Perfumes and Cosmetics purported to magically enhance attractiveness and allure. These products went untrusted by many of the Tech Megacorps, but they were an instant hit within Talaris and on the Callous Row street markets.
  • Fitness and Weight Loss products that promise supernatural results. A major hit among the wealthy in the Corporate towers.
  • An Astral Surveillance program using wind spirits to run security on high-end clients. This is Talaris answer to Nirvana insurance contracts, and it is a favorite of managers throughout the corporations.

Talaris frequently publishes data on the efficacy of these products, though no one from outside of the corporation has ever collaborated on it.
