- "From bio-medical advances to the very latest in energy and enviromental engineering, Prospero is the future."
- ―Philip Burton[src]
Propsero Industries is a scientific company responsible for many major breakthroughs in areas such from medicine to the environment. Its CEO is Philip Burton. Prospero owns around 50% of the Anomaly Research Centre, so when the ARC was reformed after the drastic failure of one of its missions, the new ARC team set up their base in a Prospero facility.
Aim and AchievementsEdit
Prospero Industries aim to harness the power of the Anomalies and use them as a resource. Using Anomaly Research, Prospero Industries has already succeeded in creating First Man-made Anomaly and the Biggest Anomaly on Record, something that no one else had had the ability to do in recorded history. Propsero is best known for its work in New Dawn, but has probably succeeded with many other businesses, which would explain why Philip Burton is constantly getting referred to as one of the world's greatest scientist.
Phillip mentions 'New Dawn' to Connor Temple in what he thought would be his final words, as the room he is in is running out of air. He starts to explain what it is but faints before he can complete it. Later, Connor asks about it, but Philip says it doesn't matter. (Episode 4.3)
In a cast interview on ITV's site, Andrew-Lee Potts confirmed that New Dawn involves obtaining a new source of green energy from the anomalies, and that Connor's work for Philip will result in the creation of the First Man-made Anomaly.
Philip recruits Connor Temple to work in one of their labs at the ARC. Later, Philip also hires a new lab assistant called April Leonard to work with Connor. Burton took his newest recruit Connor Temple to the Prospero headquaters, presenting the New Dawn machine to him, but making him promise not to tell any of the ARC personnel. He told Connor that when the project is finished, it would make sense of the anomalies, and make use of them: To solve the greatest problem facing mankind to date. Burton explained that the anomalies were a resource, saying they had been so distracted by the creatures that they had't seen it until now. He said that he aims to produce clean, safe, unlimited energy for the whole world. (Episode 5.1)
During the convergence, the New Dawn Machine is actived and closes every Anomaly on earth, pumping all of their energy into createing a super anomaly. However, during this process, Connor Temple had fallen through the Anomaly and is presumed dead. Before the New Dawn Machine made been actived, an anomaly opened up in the skys above Prosero, letting through a flock of Anurognathus, which resulted in the death of April and two Soilders (Episode 5.5)
As the New Dawn Anomaly grows out of control and begins to cause global atmospheric changes of catastrophic proportions, Philip, realising what he has done, self-destructs the building in an attempt to stop the New Dawn Anomaly, sacrificing himself and vapourizing the building.
