The Saurians sent Maurice on an agreement with Tannis aboard Sanctuary III with the intent of “better understanding the society of the warmbloods”. While this intent could be innocent enough it also sounds exactly like something A SPY WOULD SAY!!!.
What was Maurice’s first move once aboard Sanctuary III? He began digging up dirt on Marcus. While this could be a genuine concern about Marcus’s questionable character it could also be an effort to sow seeds of division and doubt between the Crimson Raiders and their primary weapon supplier.
Maurice is clearly able to operate outside of the Crimson Raiders knowledge or we would have a better idea about the dealings he does when gambling and so on. His would also imply that Maurice has some degree of network to be invited to these high stakes gambling events.
We have been sent all across the galaxy doing Maurice’s bidding from collecting paranormal “ghost goo” to eradicating criminal Cartels and now with the Community Carnage event we are killing boss level enemies across the Borderverse. This all seems to me as a fine chance for the Saurians to examine the strengths and weaknesses of our VH’s. After all we are transported to the Heck Hole and Villa Ultraviolet via a mysterious portal summoned by none other than Maurice. Where is he actually sending us? Am I the only one that sees this as possibly a massive recon effort to size up the Crimson Raiders?
Also consider Maurice’s Black Market vending machine. The revenue generated by this would be a nice bonus to any military group.
We know that the Saurians feel that they are superior to the “warmbloods”. Was Maurice vetted before allowed aboard Sanctuary III? Could we be overlooking a very serious threat? Could the Saurians be setting up a possible attempt to overtake the Crimson Raiders? What are they even capable of?
Something seems fishy here friends, I might be overthinking it but I’m gonna keep this “Maurice” at arms length.
(I know the idea is a long shot, but I felt compelled to try to spark a fresh topic in a very bleak forum)
