Silicon Knights has hired financial sector veteran Michael Mays as the company’s new vice president. Mays now has the extraordinary job of working intimately with the company’s outspoken president and founder Denis Dyack.

It isn’t known if Mays had to go through an elaborate hazing ritual, however it appears as if he’ll fit right in with the Ontario studio. Edge reported that one of the Mays’ first acts as vice president was to hand out battle swords to nine members of Silicon Knights who had weathered a decade of Too Human, Dyack, and Canada. The swords are as deadly as a NeoGAF thread on the ego. They are described as “battle-ready” which means if one of the nineteen people at SK has a really bad day, he or she could get national news attention.

Michael Mays (sadly) doesn’t promote or OxyClean, Orange Glo or have a funny excited voice.
