Cornell Gast is a ranking member of the board of directors of Graystone Industries. Gast struggled with drug addiction, an addiction that he eventually overcame. He also had, in the words of Daniel Graystone, an unintentional tendency to "hurt" young girls; Graystone paid these girls generously for their silence. Three years later, Graystone blackmails Gast by threatening to reveal this sordid past, in order to be reinstated as CEO of Graystone Industries. Gast angrily refuses, and rather than forcing his wife and children to endure the publicity, shoots himself in the head later that evening (CAP: "Retribution").
