Karl Reinhardt, has remained a trusted friend of Atticus Gale and is currently the only person who bears the knowledge that he was once Toril Njordhagen, the founder of the company. He knows that Atticus is a Meta-human and helps in whatever capacity he can to protect his secret. Through Karl's undying loyalty to Toril, Atticus continues in secret to direct the company and is afforded all the freedom he requires to unravel the mysteries of the viruses and what is currently believed to be the Meta-human 'syndrome'. Everything they do, is still from a perspective of Genetic Science and are, in the year 2013 just beginning to suspect that magic has indeed become a new variable to consider.
Before the 'RESONANCE', Atticus Gale was known as Toril Njordhagen, a man who in his 73 years had built Genomorph Laboratories and faded into obscurity, establishing his good friend and colleague, Karl Reinhardt as the CEO of the company. When the 'RESONANCE' transformed him, restoring his youth (and somewhat altering his appearance) he put his trust in his old friend relinquishing his stocks to him and created the new identity he possesses today.
Genomorph Laboratories became part of the NWDD after the 'RESONANCE' and was absorbed into their Research Division where Reinhardt became the Director of the NWDD Research Division. Some of the top minds are employed by Genomorph and have been granted the task (among others) of deciphering the three viruses and more.

Karl is a Caucasian male of Germanic descent with thinning golden blonde hair. He generally appears welcoming, although he can be a very shrewd businessman when required. He prefers lighter coloured suits to dark, and often wears brightly coloured dress shirts. He has glasses to enhance is vision at a distance but does not always wear them.
Generous and direct are the two traits that best describe, Karl. Always diplomatic, he is refined, smooth, and ever amiable. Only when one gets to know him on a personal level will they be exposed to his dry sense of humour and cynical look out on life in general.
