Established 1921, the Pike Industrial Complex was the culmination of Jonathan Pike’s dream to push industrial progress to its limits. His plan involved both power processing and chemical experimentation in order to develop and synthesize the most advanced biomedical serums and elixirs. His goal was to both augment the human form and create new material-engineering techniques, revolutionizing the human experience through technology. However, these plans were cut short by his untimely demise in 1924, and Pike Industries was left in the hands of his 26-year-old son, Graham Pike.
Graham was not the humanitarian his father was, but was similarly scientifically minded. He went even further with his father’s goals, engaging in testing that was harmful for the subjects and experiments that left Rook City in worse and worse shape.
Pike Industries still claims Graham Pike as its CEO, though no one has seen the man in over 40 years. There is a tower in the Pike Industrial Complex which only select employees are allowed to enter, and the orders from Mr. Pike come from that building. The rest of the Industrial Complex is devoted to the creation of the stimulants and compounds that make Pike Industries such a successful chemical production company, and the testing of those chemicals on their various subjects.
