Corpos are most at home in the board room after rising the corporate ladder of the Arasaka corporation. They are familiar with doing whatever it takes, often at the expense of social comfort, to progress further in business. As such, this can give the benefit of seeing through people and being able to read between the lines when trying to do business with them, whether they are part of the corporate world or not.
During the prologue V starts off as an up-and-coming employee (ID#: NC770416) working in the counterintelligence division of Arasaka, currently tasked with cleaning up a damaging leak about an incident in Frankfurt that has jeopardized Arasaka's standing with the European Space Agency. V's immediate superior is Arthur Jenkins, who resents Director of Special Operations Susan Abernathy for stealing his promotion. The story takes a turn to the unexpected, as a layered series of events lead to competitive backstabbing and a complete eye-opening turn of fortune and potential reformation of the protagonist once they survive it.
