The Soulprint Files
Founded in 2096 as a pharmaceutical company offering low-cost generic alternatives to expensive name-brand medications, Grail Pharmaceuticals gained a reputation in the 22nd century as something of a biomedical Robin Hood. In the late 22nd century, when governments began to collapse and megacorporations consolidated their power, Henry Grail rebranded his family’s corporation as Grail Biotechnica. He undercut the competition, executed hostile takeovers, stole brand secrets, and drove other biotechnical corporations into the ground. By the dawn of the 23rd century, Grail Biotechnica had a monopoly on cosmetic and clinical drugs in Los Santos and the rest of the Americas.
Dr. Edward Grail, son of Henry Grail, now heads the megacorporation. He has taken Grail Biotechnica back to its roots, with the slogan, “Healing for those who hurt.” He’s opened free clinics on the lower tier of Los Altos and treats even mutants and cyborgs. The workers at his drug manufacturing plants enjoy some of the best working conditions in all of Los Santos. He donates to the city infrastructure and is known as the most liberal voice on the People’s Council.
