Ares was started by Nicholas Aurelius, and he built the corporation into a big deal, doing things like purchasing NASA

control of the corp to Damien Knight.
Ares has plenty of divisions and subsidiaries. One of the biggest is Ares Arms, the largest weapons distributor in the
world, and probably the first thing runners think of when they hear the word Ares. AresSpace is another biggie; it's the evolution
of NASA that has made Ares a pioneer in off-world development. The most important Ares division to us runners, though, is
Knight Errant (KE) Security Services. Pushing out the independent security company, Lone Star, Knight Errant is not just Ares?
