Head of VanDerlay Industries, David Vanderlay is almost a government unto himself. He holds great power and greater wealth.

More importantly, he has used his resources to provide Andrew Masters with timely and valuable information. David appears to be in his mid fifties. It is rumored that he supports a huge laboratory that explores the outlawed genetic specialty of cloning.
