Elgen Inc. was a medical devices manufacturing company that tried to use the MEI device to cure diseases. Subsequently, it became a renewable electricity company with malevolent aspirations. The MEI was made by Dr. Coondradt.
The Elgen are lead by a chairman of the board of app. 12 members, who reside in a yacht in international territory as too not be accused of their crimes, including over 41 murder charges. The (former) chairman's name is Giacomo Schema. The board members are simply addressed by number. Hatch takes over control of the Elgen in Battle of the Ampere. Two board members are killed during Hatch's takeover.
- Ten: He claims that Hatch will never get away with his actions, Hatch responds by having him thrown out of the Ampere, over a 60 story fall with his hands behind his back.
- Two: She begs Hatch to cut Schema down from his upside-down position. Hatch agrees, as long as she took his place. By the time Michael and the Electroclan find the imprisoned board members, she is dead.
Elgen was originally founded as Amberz, because the word "Amber" was connected to "electricity" in etymological terms. Sometime in 1984, it was incorporated and named Elgen Inc.. The Corporation started as a medical products manufacturing company. Dr. Coondradt discovered a breakthrough with curing diseases, the MEI machine. Sometime after the breakthrough, Elgen's CEO, Briton E. Hill, passed away. Eventually the company hired an ambitious MIT graduate, who was the CEO of a successful pharmaceutical company, to be their leader. His name was Dr. C. James Hatch.
After the MEI machine malfunctioned, Hatch proposed a new idea to the board: the Starxource Plant Initiativ, which developed power plants powered by bioengineered rats. This turned the company into one of the most important energy companies in the world.
Eventually, the company lost billions of dollars from the destruction of the Peruvian power plant, destroyed by Michael Vey, one of the MEI's test subjects. Hatch took over the company and corrupted it to rule the governments of the world. After the series, longtime employee Carl Vey, Michael's father, became chairman of the Elgen Corporation (which the new board would rename "Veytric, Inc.")
The Elgen force consists of approximately 5,000 soldiers, referred to as guards, but has risen greatly to be approximately 16,000. In Storm of Lightning, these guards, in general wear black uniforms, and occasionally a copper helmet to avoid being rebooted by Taylor. The guards carry a plethora of weaponry, including various handguns and rifles. Near the end of Rise of The Elgen about half of the guards answer to Hatch alone, at least 2,000 in the Peruvian facility. In Taiwan there is a group of Elgen guard called the Lung Li. They are basically modern day ninjas.
