Stanford University is a human educational institution that was founded in 1891 in California, United States of America. By the twenty-first century, it had attained the status of one the foremost universities in the U.S. and the entire world.
In 2552, a group of graduate students from Stanford ran an elaborate card-counting scheme at the Apollonian Temple Casino. The Casino's owner, Mr. F, asked Aiden Maki to find a solution to this cheating problem. He introduced him to Kamal Zaman, who successfully foiled the students' scheme, recouping the casino's losses.
