Arlen Crane is the primary antagonist of Guyver: Dark Hero. An agent of the Chronos Corporation, Crane has been appointed by his superiors to head a Chronos-funded archaeological dig in Utah where an ancient alien spacecraft has been laying dormant for millenia.
Crane is portrayed by Bruno Giannotta.
HistoryCrane is the Operations Director of the archaeological dig being conducted by Dr. Marcus Edwards and his university group. He along with the dig's security personnel are all Zoanoid agents sent by Chronos to secure the alien relic so that the company can study its bio-technology to further their plans for world domination. Progress on the dig is accelerated thanks to the unexpected arrival of Sean Barker - the Guyver - whose bio-booster armour grants him access to the ship's interior.
After discovering the Guyver's identity, Crane approaches Sean inside the ship and reveals his Zoanoid form. He offers Sean the chance to remove the Guyver from his body using the aliens' technology, but as much as Sean despises the Guyver for urging him to kill, he despises Chronos even more and rejects Crane's offer. This leads to a confrontation between Sean and Crane who fight it out towards the end of the film.
