To patrol the long and winding corridors of the sewers leading to the GHEIST'S HQ, Vryer created Arkn - giant spiders with metal legs, controlled by a rat's brain. Fast, silent, clever and cruel, they wipe out anything that crosses their path. All in all, they're perfect for the job.
GHEIST is an ultra-secret criminal organization that was founded at the end of the 70s by super-rich Doctor Sigmund Gheist. In order to increase its numbers, it has decided to take control of Clint City and its gangs by hook or by crook.
