->In the grand plans of [[EvilInc Pentex]], there is one small company that remains unappreciated by most of the higher-ups in the corporation. This company doesn't get the "sexy" jobs, like [[ToxicInc destroying the environment]], unearthing ancient [[EldritchAbomination Wyrm entities]], or [[CorruptTheCutie turning Kinfolk children into serial killers]]. But without the hard work and good old-fashioned craftsmanship of Safe Haven Construction, none of the other face of Pentex could get their work done.
