Niander Wallace, Sr. was the founder and CEO of Wallace Corporation.


In October 2032, Wallace met with Senator Bannister at the Pickfair Hotel for a televised event. There he announced his support for the fundraising of Bannister's project which would supposedly improve the quality of public life. Wallace then returned to his home shortly after.

That night Wallace engaged his son, Niander Wallace, Jr. in a game of Go whilst criticizing the younger Wallace's failures to fulfill his business promises. After playing a triumphant move in their game, the elder Wallace received a phone call informing him that Bannister had been killed.[1]

Wallace and his son later viewed the news coverage of Bannister's death. The younger Wallace noted that this death would make it less likely for replicant production to be legalized, though the elder was not so worried. Wallace Sr. conceded that his son's innovations in synthetic proteins saved the world from starvation, but noted that his son's ideas often lack power and funding.[2]

Los Angeles Police Department Chief Earl Grant later came to Wallace, informing him that a member of a group of replicants he hunted had escaped to the city and promised he would see to her elimination. Wallace then tried to call his son, but received no answer.[3]
