Austrinus is the leader of an organization called the Ghosts and is a weapons and armor manufacturer for a private company. The Ghosts are strongly anti-government and are looking to use their wealth to accumulate as many limited resources as they can for their own gain, which makes sense to them in a world that is rapidly falling apart. Austrinus is determined, cutthroat, and believes he needs to do this to help wealthy people provide for themselves. He thinks everyone else is past saving. He had his suit and electric whip custom made by his own engineers.
