J. Harris Arnold is the founder, CEO, and lead designer of Anvil Aerospace. He is an eccentric spacecraft designer of the old school who insisted on signing off on every part of his designs’ subsystems, was a beloved figure in an otherwise cutthroat industry. And he continued to do so after founding Anvil Aerospace in 2776. [1][2]

Design Inspiration

Arnold was obsessed with the works of Leonard Casse. To him, the mostly forgotten engineer represented everything he loved about ship design. When he eventually started his own ship manufacturing company, Arnold drew heavy inspiration from Casse’s business model and ships for his own designs, utilizing such signature elements as the curvedwings and open circle signet. The similarities were such that Arnold and his fledgling company, Anvil Aerospace, was sued by the holding firm who had bought the rights to Casse’s designs. Arnold decided to settle the case by purchasing all of Casse Aerospace’s portfolio himself. Now the owner of Casse’s legacy, Arnold sought an opportunity to put the company’s original designs to use, but one didn’t present itself for close to seventy years.[3]
