Lim Taesik (Kor. 임태식) is an ordinary human and the current Director of the KSA.
He is a bulky man with a stern face, square chin and overgrown eyebrows. His face is very wrinkled and pale.
As the director of the Korean base, he has to be strict to maintain discipline. But he is shown to be understanding when Na Yonsu accuses unskilled trainees for their assessment's failure. He is also intelligent and agreed to work with Cerberus agents rather than oppose them after seeing their power. He offers cooperation as he is worried for the rest of his agents.
He offers full cooperation to Frankenstein after learning that they have no intention of using KSA.
Lim Taesik is the Director of the KSA. Na Yonsu and An Sangeen report to him. He is also responsible for maintaining a liaison with the Union.
Lim Taesik first appears with the introduction of KSA in the series. He debuts when giving a new mission to the KSA agents - Yonsu and Sangeen. It was a mission to assess possible recruits.
When the Cerberus team arrives in Korea, they meet and oppress him. Due to the certainty that his agents stand no chance against the powerful modified humans in Cerberus, he is compelled to submit to their requirements. He is later treated and saved by Frankenstein as he suffered considerable injuries after his confrontation with 12th Elder and Taze.
When the three Union Elders: 5th, 7th & 8th arrive in the city, they meet with Lim Taesik to inform him they are taking over as authority and tells the KSA to prepare for the situations which will arise due to their conflict with the enemy.
He is again shown during Ignes' arrival in the city when Seira and Regis come to his office formally as nobles of Lukedonia to offer support.
Lim Taesik is present when Lunark visits the KSA Headquarters looking for Frankenstein.
Lim Taesik is the shown to be a normal human with no enhancement or combat experience. But being the director of the KSA, he has authority over all the agents, researchers and trainees working at KSA. As the highest-ranked official at KSA, he is also the one to maintain contact with the Union.
