No one knows where Sebastian came from, or what he had been doing before. All they knew is that one day he touched down at Corver City airport, stepped off a slick private jet, and took up residence in the tallest building at the center of Garland Grove. This building, known as Heathrow Heights, became headquarters to his multibillion dollar company, Bash Industries, and within two years Sebastian owned every single square foot of The Heights. His personal living quarters were nestled on the entire top floor of the 160 floor building, and the Corver City Daily gushed about how Sebastian had brought modern elegance to Garland Grove. His penthouse was designed with floor to ceiling windows so that Sebastian could gaze out at the city each morning. Every bathroom mirror included a hidden panel that would transform into a screen with the simple tap of a finger, giving Sebastian the ability to watch the news and keep track of the stock market while he admired his handsome reflection. No one questioned why Corver City’s most eligible bachelor lived in a sprawling apartment with twelve bedrooms, or why the level of security was so intense that the windows were made from two way mirrors, so that he could see out, but no one could see in. It was a bit excessive for the 160th floor, but everyone agreed that Sebastian had things he needed to protect, special and advanced technology that was so cutting edge, he was the first to introduce it to the world.
Bash Industries' leading product is called The Memory Maker. Have you ever wanted to go skydiving, but logically felt terrified to do so? Sebastian will explain, flashing his trademark rakish grin–with The Memory Maker, you don’t have to do it, you just have to think you did. The technology goes far beyond that of typical virtual reality, physically implanting the memories of these dangerous and dare devilish experiences into your brain, so that a person can remember them vividly and in perfect detail. When The Memory Maker first hit the scene, it became widely popular with everyone and anyone who could afford to take it for a spin, and thousands of celebrities and political figures flocked to Corver City to be the first to experience it for themselves. Before Corver City, Sebastian was clearly already very wealthy, but after, he was in possession of the kind of funds that make a person untouchable. He was also incredibly popular, and found himself in high demand at every high profile event, with his name and face splashed all over newspapers, magazines, billboards, and social media. Sebastian’s tailored suits were custom made, and he was never seen in the same one twice, very much in the way that he was never seen with the same woman twice, as he spent his evenings at the most lavish and hard to get into clubs and restaurants. But, as is often the case, that much money and power can get to a person’s head, and with Sebastian’s level of tech know how, combined with an ever growing ego, he was bound to become bored with the endless parade of luxury and success, and create something much more nefarious, if only for the thrill of it.
