As written in the book, recruiting Challenger gives a bonus point of Influence and the opportunity to have him produce a working version of The Challenger Apparatus, which, while undeniably useful in Vampire Hunting, takes rather a long time to complete and a not inconsiderable amount of money to have him around month on month to be able to develop.

For some that might not seem to be enough 'bang for the buck' so I decided to expand on Challenger's 'usefulness' providing a variety of different projects that he could work on, giving the Lodge more 'reasons' to keep him around in order that they be developed and become useful. It also gives a reason for the ongoing effect of the Influence bonus that he provides.
