Horza/Shakespeare's sole contact, and fixer
Arkady is a human fixer/middleman who hires out merc companies and ‘runners throughout Africa and the Middle East. He might be Russian, it’s hard to say. He doesn’t do face-to-face, only matrix contact, and is pretty mysterious as to where he actually resides, what he looks like, if he’s part of a larger organization, etc. He seems to have pretty good connections, but isn’t always willing to share.
He has lured Shakespeare to the Azanian Republic with word that there might be leads on who wiped out her merc company there. He has her doing odd jobs locally for now, until something comes up.
