Anton Saric is the ruthless and sadistic High Commander of Helghast Security and tasked by his superiors to defend New Helghan against threats both within and without. Saric, like most high-ranking Helghast, is a ruthless man. He uses his position as head of New Helghan's security forces to inflict violence and suffering on Vektans whenever possible. Little is known of Saric's life, but as a child he witnessed and survived Helghan's destruction. As he grew, so too did his contempt and hatred for the Vektans, whom he sees as responsible for the deaths of over a billion Helghast.
