Markus Venlu is the CEO of Venlu Corporation, a global initiative for the incarceration of criminals and agitators.
Venlu approached the heads of the major city-states and offered them an opportunity to rid their cities of expensive and unsightly prisons, promising to take any and all prisoners off their hands, while abiding by the penal system requirements of each city-state government. For many the offer was too good to pass up - Venlu was willing to handle the most dangerous criminals and shoulder the responsibility of their incarceration. Venlu quickly became a major player in the New World’s corporate power game.
It was not long before Venlu had enough contracts and Trust to expand its operation. The construction of the Venlu Island prison quickly followed. In 2274, Venlu Corporation moved into Guadalupe Island and established the world’s first corporately run island prison.
