MAIN CHARACTER SEASON 1
Eugene's rise came fast and furious after developing a way to recycle toxic waste into clean energy, making him a billionaire overnight and E.V.I.L., Inc the highest-ranked privately held company in the tech sector. Eugene's mission and the undocumented mission statement of E.V.I.L. Inc. is "to ensure the longevity of Earth and the human species - by any means necessary."
EVIL Inc CEO, Eugene White, is brilliant and eccentric, but highly emotional due to his past. Eugene's family was killed when his hometown, a small community outside of Chernogolovka, Russia, was decimated by a failed chemical experiment ran by greedy energy oligarchs and covered up by corrupt government officials "in the name of Progress." Since then, Eugene has thought a lot about "Progress" and how humans treat each other, discussing it at length with the alien in the basement.
BLACK AND WHITE
E.V.I.L., Inc.'s mission statement, brand, and corporate culture reflect his outlook on humanity, and it's "Progress." E.V.I.L. Inc. sounds bad, but Eugene’s cool with that because it's necessary. Magnetically sling-shotting oil rigs, and crew, into the sun sounds evil, but also necessary since the practice continues to bleed catastrophic amounts of oil into the world’s oceans-- and he gave fair warning well beforehand. When it comes to preserving the planet versus human life, Eugene views the choices he makes as black and white and everyone can either get behind him, watch from the side, or join the oil rigs...
Eugene doesn’t have much desire for, or experience in, relating to the average human; just ask Celeste. Keep in mind that the people closest to Eugene are the teenage minded, indestructible clone of himself that he is raising to lead his “security forces” and the female POC and former assassin that helps him co-parent the clone and the company… but they are his family now, and what else do ya need to take on the world?
“Mass layoffs are coming everyone, and don’t think just because you have a cushy spot behind the curtain means you’re exempt! Oh, believe me, I can see you, I’m aiming right at you! Your system is broken, corrupt, and your solutions are just bandaids on top of bandaids creating a gooey bandaid monster! I, Eugene White, am commencing the world’s greatest campaign of global regime change, and don’t care who I offend, or kill… If you have been railroading your fellow human by raping the planet, your days are numbered. Our planet and our species need a champion, and I accepted the call.”
