Alkherrodyne Propulsions was a corporation with poor business ethics. Their practices included programming obsolescence into their products, and covering up inferior workmanship with flashy advertising and marketing. Though they received warnings from their design systems team leader, Klaus Vandangante, they still pushed ahead with their Azaria 66. When the Azaria 66 began exploding in minor accidents, the company was bombarded with lawsuits. They used company slicers to frame Vandangante as a scapegoat. However, that was insufficient to save the company, which collapsed in bankruptcy.
