The Phone Company, commonly referred to as the PC, was a corporate entity responsible for developing human cytonics.[1]


In the year 2071 a failing phone company called Northern Bell Incorporated invested in developing Cyto, a cybernetic-based telepathic linking. The few signals that they managed to get through the system attracted the attention of the tenasi. When the United Governments military accidentally shot down the tenasi ambassadorial ship, the PC brokered the Tenasi Agreement in exchange for complete autonomy and a monopoly on FTL technology.[1]

After negotiating the Tenasi Agreement, they were the only group of humans with cytonic capabilities or technology, and the de facto controllers of access to it. Additionally, aliens refused to deal with humanity except through the Phone Company.[1]

Though the Superiority keeps humans contained and Earth has vanished,[2][3] they managed to maintain their existence through the Human Wars.[4]


As of 2211, their chief operative was Jason Write and the head of their Central Operations was Lanna Write. Other members included Aaron, Doran, and Riely.[1]


They are planned to have cameos in the Skyward series.[4]
