Alys Grant works as a middle manager for Infotech. Despite her less than stellar salary, she lives in a very nice apartment, wears top of the line clothes and jewelry, and can afford to send her son Jace to the Bartholomew School for Advanced Studies.
When Jace was kidnapped, she hired the team through Hand to rescue him. She was very adamant about the incident staying out of the media. But when she later learned that the PCs had covered up the facts regarding who took him, she hired another edge runner team to take out the PCs. Luckily, they failed. She now currently has a contract out on Hand.
