"If I hate one thing, it is incompetence! I do not tolerate people not doing their homework properly. I must be able to trust every employee blindly."
—Skylar Banes

Skylar Banes is the brilliant (as told by Rufus Thorne) CEO of the Tycoon Organization, Global Trust. The Player can vote for her as president of the World Council.

The Tycoons' most efficient transport road, Banes Avenue, and one of the world's most prestigious schools, Banes Elite University, are named after her. On the official Soundtrack of the game, there's a track named "Skylar's Masterplan".

Director Banes, as seen in the Global Trust's introduction video

She appears in the game when the player begins to construct the Tycoon Monument (similar to Seamus Green).

After the monument is completed, she will give the player quests like the other NPCs. As a reward, she will sometimes give very powerful items to the player. Failing her quests does however not incur an influence penalty, since she does not have an influence bar or any diplomacy screen at all.

She will sometimes also send a Container Ship into the sector to trade at your warehouses.

Fate after ANNO2070 Edit

Not much is known about Banes' fate following the events of ANNO2070, although its likely she led Global Trust until she passed away. Following Banes' assumed successor's decisions, Global Trust eventually took a turn for the worst, and by the time the events in ANNO2205 takes place, Global Trust had long since gone bankrupt.
