Having served in the armed forced alongside
such notable (and controversial) people
as E.J. Gamble, Ronald Dowell became the
unlikely president of LapoTec, LLC in the
late nineties. His head for military strategy
translated into a strong business ethic
that saved the company from financial disaster.
Dowell's military background led many conspiracy
theorists to question his role at LapoTec.
The company had been accused of everything
from heartless experimentation on animals
to human cloning for years. Many of the
stories surrounding the mysterious company
are simply dismissed as rumor.
Those who Ron knows personally describe
him as a gentle and pensive man. His life
is one of personal tragedy. In his mid twenties,
Dowell lost his daughter and only child
to leukemia. Several months later his wife
committed suicide. Ronald never remarried.
In one of the few interviews conducted
with the man, he had this to say:
"For years, people have accused my
company of doing things the wrong way. They
say we're breaking laws and that we're morally
bankrupt. I've dedicated my whole life to
helping people, and my role at LapoTec is
part of that same goal. Our research is
helping to end diseases like the one that
took my daughter. If you think I'm really
a bad guy, then you don't know anything
