Location: City Main
When you are the biggest financial institution in the Shady City it makes you a target for those who look to gain by any means necessary.
Ernest Beckingridge didn’t want any of it. He wanted to be a magician but Gramps scoffed at the idea so he was shackled into a suit, a power tie wrapped around his neck and locked in the dungeon that was the penthouse office of Beckingridge Tower.
Standing as one of the tallest buildings in the city, Beckingridge Tower is home to the wealth of the most powerful families of Coldford including WEIR, OWEN, and DOYLE. It takes a pretty big place to hold that kind of responsibility.
The financial industry in Coldford is often called the Shark Tank and you need pretty sharp teeth to swim the waters successfully. This was something poor Ernest couldn’t cope with. The final nail in his meek coffin came when the firm came under attack and fifty nine clients and staff were pushed from the Tower’s top floor in an event known as the Free Fall Massacre.
With the firm leadership in contention the richest powerhouse in Coldford could either fall to Ernest’s sister ELIZABETH, better known as the Dragon Lady for her eccentricity and her temper or his son GEORGE, famous for being kidnapped by his music teacher, having a body count by age eight and last seen pledging KAPPA SO.
