Gilead Conch was a block of coral Sir Beys installed as CEO of SORA Gas & Electric. It was unclear whether the coral was alive or not, though if it was alive it would be much easier to pass off as a CEO. Since Conch couldn't actually do anything, Sir Beys could do whatever he liked as Conch's assistant.
Conch was destroyed when DS-1 visited the plant and activated the autoturrets. To hit Hippolytes, who hid behind Conch's desk, the autoturret shot through Conch and his desk, destroying both. (Nietzsche's Soldiers 2)
