When you hit someone over the head with 22 pounds of steel, they tend not to appreciate it.
~ Taz Amanpour, referring to the Wrench.

Taz Amanpour is a character in System Shock 2. He is the first named corpse that the Soldier encounters. Amanpour was a member of the Maintenance Crew of the Von Braun. He contributed the quote for the Wrench's flavor text.


Sometime before the Von Braun was infected, Amanpour was given orders from Grassi to change the access code to the door in Cryo Recovery A, which he thought was pointless. Amanpour was killed not far from the door he re-coded. It is unknown what killed him, but blood splatter on the wall suggests that he was shot.


His body is found where he was killed in Cryo Recovery A. His only audio log, still on him, contains the code for the door he re-coded.
