More Info...

I discovered William Gibson’s Neuromancer novels and soon fell in love with the Cyberpunk genre.  This developed into my fascination with future weapons and technology.  In the future there will be no courts or lawyers.  Corporations will use their own "soldiers" to carry out legal actions.  Tomorrow's corporate commandos will be the "Independent Combat Engineers" (I.C.E.).  This costume evolved over the years and eventually included a dress shirt, formal wear as well as armored combat gear.  The prop weapons evolved as well and inspired an entire line of P.A.W.s.
