Wayne, El Presidente de Magnifico, TLWLT Inc (parent company of Altos)
Initially believed to have been born on Earth, Wayne later learns that he is a member of an extraterrestrial warrior race called the ‘Guitar Heroes’, which is also the reason for his superhuman strength. As Wayne grew up, he became the Earth’s mightiest warrior and protects it from those who seek to destroy it. During his mission, he met and caught the eyes of Dr. Tamara White and since then has brought about a mess of children who are all entirely too precocious. Since then, he has taken a break from his journey and spends his time working at Altos as a general handyman, tech geek and client liaison. In his spare time is the CIO for Results Company International, lead singer in an 80s rock band, serious Harley Davidson enthusiast with pipes that are entirely too loud, amateur brew master continually tinkering with beer recipes, author and blogger. He has a house full of children, a handful of dogs & cats, and enough KISS albums & paraphernalia to open a museum.
