Knight Errant Security Services
Seattle Division: Knight Errant Seattle, 715 NE Third Street, Renton (training academy)
Division Head: Ellen Ward
Of course, no discussion of Ares in Seattle would be complete without talking about Knight Errant, their security services subsidiary. The Knights only recently moved to the top-slot of security service contractors in the metroplex, taking the spot formerly held by Lone Star Security Services. This meant a major increase in the size of their Seattle operation in a fairly short period of time. Fortunately, KE had been planning for the day they would take over in Seattle, and their training academy has been working overtime to turn out new officers. As a stopgap they’ve hired a lot of contract workers, including quite a few former Lone Star employees, but they’re requiring anyone who wants a permanent job to go through academy training.
This makes Knight Errant VP Ellen Ward Seattle’s Chief of Police Services. A veteran who worked her way up through the company’s ranks, Ms. Ward combines administrative skill and leadership with a fair amount of political savvy. She stepped right into working with the governor’s Cabinet without missing a beat, and shows nothing but confidence in KE’s ability to handle things in Seattle.

>I just call things as I see them, Kat. Ward has a spotless record with KE, and has taken on a big job in Seattle. Time will tell if her outward confidence is justified or just for show. And just for the record: although Ellen Ward has been with her partner Michelle Ayers for some years now, prior information suggests she’s a switch-hitter.
