This is the core leadership group of the Black Dawn Legion, essentially a group of corrupt corporate officials, law enforcement, military and scientists. The reasons for the formation of the group are purely speculative. One thing is for certain, however. They rule the BDL. Martin Jonas Calhoun (center) is a former Unified Government Special Forces soldier that went on to head up his own corporation called Red Nova Industries in the dimension where Earth exists. He makes periodic trips back to secure funds and materials for BDL activities. Tetsuo Shimagawa (with the metal arm)was the head researcher of a government-funded cybernetics/biomechanics program. When his research reached the point where he began to experiment on his colleagues and himself, he was arrested and imprisoned for several years. Free again, he is head of all things scientific in nature, and also Dr. Sterling's supervisor. Maricella Medina (woman w/rifle on her back)was a military intelligence officer. Corman Dietz (blonde man w/eyepatch)was head of the Unified Air Force before an accident. Vic 7 (back row)was an experiment of Shimagawa's. Tanya Lance (redhead with the Molotov cocktail) was a military demolitions expert.
