Central

My name is Olivia Gladstone. I ran the Pan-Euro Infosec Agency, back when sovereign governments were still in fashion. After the war I founded Invisible, Inc., a freelance intelligence agency. We may work for the corps, but only to serve our own ends. We've been gathering intelligence for years, waiting for the opportunity to bring the whole machine crashing down. Unfortunately, they found us first.

Olivia Gladstone, known as Central, is the founder and leader of Invisible.

Central is voiced in the game by actress Veena Sood.

On-file

Olivia Gladstone was the highest-ranking officer in the Pan-Euro Infosec Agency before it collapsed at the end of the Resource Wars. Forced into hiding, she re-emerged as the founder and leader of Invisible, Inc. She currently holds the record for highest total corporate bounty ever offered for a single target.

Olivia

Olivia Gladstone first joined the PEIA as an agent, long before the outbreak of the open hostilities. Originally an intelligence officer for the British government, she brought a degree of professionalism to the fledgling organization. A brilliant tactician on the field, she quickly gained a reputation for keeping her composure in even the most dire of situations.

Gladstone was captured during a risky solo mission in 2043. While she eventually escaped, her time in captivity left lasting injuries that impaired her field performance. After retraining as an Operator, she proved even more formidable behind the screen. Her mission ranking was unparalleled when the war began, and it was no surprise when she was chosen to lead the PEIA when its founding Director defected.

Olivia is the archive variation of Central. She is a playable agent in the Contingency Plan DLC.

Character

What can I say? When it comes to covert infosec operations, I know more than any living human being on the planet. This is not boasting; it's an undeniable fact bought with long, hard decades of experience. We could have won the war. I still believe that. But our early efforts were hamstrung by incompetent leadership that refused to accept the severity of the situation. When the Director finally realized how bad it was he defected to the corps. I took over and made it our first priority to recapture him before he gave away too many of our operational secrets. I pulled the trigger myself, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
