Oryx is a service management corporation specialized in raw material extraction, refinement and logistics. This means they contract with other corporations to staff mining operations, secure operations and distribute the resulting resources as needed.
This cushions the other corporation from labor disputes and indemnifies them from legal issues that may come from the extraction of raw materials from troublesome sources. In other words: plausible deniability.
The Oryx headquarters is located in a small office of the Spire on Absalom Station in the heart of the Pact Worlds. They pay significant sums of money for access to high level offices and important people. Their corporate marketing and lobbying staff are very good at their jobs.
The bottom line is “production pays the bills” so whatever it takes to meet the quota. A steady stream of sentient labor to keep operations moving is critical.
Known by most as “The Terminal”, this deep space station operates as the central hub for Oryx operations in this sector.
Astraeus Terminal control is split between an Oryx Business Administrator and a contracted security force Commander.
Administrator Loriya manages all civilian aspects of the Terminal and the Sector. The Administrator is responsible for any and all contracts, harvesting operations and logistics. They are also the highest representative authority for Oryx operations in the sector.
Commander Sawyer is the officer in control of the contracted security forces known as the Vigilants. She has complete military authority over all security forces and most outpost command staff throughout Oryx’s operations in the sector.
