CEO OF WARD INSTITUTE & N.A. SECTOR DIRECTOR
As the CEO of Ward Institute and Leader of The Pharos North American Division, Christopher Ward’s days are rarely dull, not that they would be in his family. An intense man, he’s not above jumping into the trenches and working alongside agents — he lives and breaths his work.
Ruggedly handsome with a thick head of brown hair and stern blue eyes, the intensity of his persona is reflected in his features. He is rarely out of a suit, but more than often the blazer is discarded. A practical man, his attire reflects this with no-nonsense styled pants and shoes..
All the Ward’s seem to emit an aura of strength and severity, Christopher is no different. Practical to the core if one didn’t know his name they’d have no idea the man sat atop bank accounts pushing close to a billion dollars. Unlike the rest of his family, he seems completely detached from the family fortune.
A physical man, he possessed a passionate temper that at times can get the better of him, or rather someone else, but those incidents are rare. He’s a very controlled individual, his back only getting up when family, friends are threatened or greed crosses his path.
Above all, Christopher wants to trust people. He believes in ‘character’ and is a man of many chances, but it’s three strikes and yer out. He’s made his own share of mistakes and doesn’t ever hold himself above another until it’s evident they’re a bottom-dweller.
His days are long but he makes time for his family and his fitness. He’s always been active, a boxer in his youth Christopher is no stranger to intense workouts. Later on in his years now, he prefers bike riding to fighting in the ring, but he still likes to mix-it-up once in a while.
A coffee drinker, there’s always a cup or two lingering on his messy desk. He likes to have several projects on the go at one time — keeps him on his toes. Fact is, he’s easily bored and when work starts to bog him down he’s not averse to jumping on plane, boat, or the car and spontaneously taking off with his family to some exotic location, or simply just the mountains.
Christopher’s office is a montage of photographs depicting the lives of his family and their many vacations. Family is extremely important to him.
After the Resonance, he was blessed with heightened endurance and an indomitable constitution. It’s almost like his body ‘eats’ adversity and pain, and probably why he pushes himself so hard. His muscles can endure ten times that of a normal man’s before lactic acid starts to build up. It’s really hard for him to get physically exhausted, but the mental strain of his day usually does the trick.
He was born with an exceptional memory, some believe it to be photographic but Christopher does not exhibit any of the strange quirks associated with the ‘gift’.
Christopher never had a formal education, everything he learned was from his father and working on the job. He was groomed for his position and those who dare to challenge his ‘limited education’ usually pay the price. He’s has read and studied more on business, anthropology, linguistics and archaeology than most doctors, thus people are ill advised to judge him by what’s written on paper.
An excellent marksman, like most things Christopher pursue he works hard until he excels at them. His boxing skills combined with the standard Pharos agent combat training makes him formidable if it comes down to physical confrontation.
He is an exceptional investigator, his high powered memory allows him to scan and remember minute details of a scene. His father took him on countless digs and anthropological explorations. He’s been all over the world, and experienced many cultures first hand.
LANGUAGES: Aside from English, he can speak/read French, German, Welsh, Latin, Ancient Greek and Irish Gaelic.
Christopher’s education began when he was a child, his father took him everywhere. By the time he was twelve, he’d already been around the world. His father was a believer in ‘hands-on’ learning. He didn’t hold much store in the classroom and so his son didn’t spend much time in one.
He worked along his father Paul Ward until the responsibility of the foundation was passed on to him. He still lives alongside his father in Ward Manor.
Children: Dalton - 22. Re-married - Daisy - 13, Brice - 7.
