Warren is a Raptor operative encountered in Aeternis.

Background[]

Unaffectionately known as "the Weasel", Warren is a shifty character. Nevertheless he is intelligent, unscrupulous and has the ability to make money fast - in any enterprise. He is helped in this by not being burdened with the usual financial encumbrance of a large and avaricious network of spies and the need to bribe petty officials. This is because he simply steals information from the plunderers themselves! - in short, he plunders the plunderers.[1]

Warren used to own a small company which supposedly specialized incorporate security, but really excelled in corporate espionage. His company secretly sold the inside Information he gained about his clients to their competitors. The business was first exposed by the 'Accurate Eye' investigative television programme and subsequently shutdown in 1998 by the Corporate Espionage Division (CED) of Scotland Yard acting under orders from the Department of Trade.[1]

Skilfully avoiding the pursuit of journalists, the police and court officials, Warren moved into a new and more exciting profession - plundering. He now spends most of his time carefully stalking his fellow Raptors. Few jobs, particularly large ones, can be researched and prepared for without his becoming aware of it. He then employs a large arsenal of electronic bugging equipment, sophisticated shadowing techniques and illegal break-ins to discover the whole story - before moving with astonishing speed to plunder the site first. These tactics combined with the latest in espionage technology have raised him to the heights of his new profession.[1]

He employs a corps of small-time East End crooks to do his dirty work, controlling them through blackmail and intimidation. Only very occasionally does he take on a job himself if the prize is so large that his minions can't be trusted. But in general his reputation for nastiness is such that few of his 'employees' ever dare to step out of line. This professional parasite is of course exceptionally unpopular with his hosts, many of whom have sworn to cut off vital parts of his anatomy if only they could find him.[1]

However, he is an expertat concealment, and has yet to be found by anyone - plunderers, police, journalists or debt collectors. Kurt Thyssen in particular has been financially crippled by this leech on more than one occasion and has sworn to kill him . In the meantime Warren continues his parasitic existence unabashed and unpunished.[1]

Aeternis and the Holy Grail are the prize of prizes and Warren personally enters it, competing with other Raptors for the prize. He doesn't play nice with others, firing on sight (such was the case when Colin Scott ran into him at the ziggurat or when Kurt Thyssen encountered him).[2][3]

Interactions[]

  • Although Warren is mentioned by other Raptors, it isn't until the endgame that he is encountered. If you follow the path to the ambush room, rather than going for the exit, he will be found with Tobias and Edgar. He's the silent partner of the trio, having allied himself with Tobias to help him reach the outside world and conquer it with the Grail. Warren executes Edgar (well, as much as one can execute him), then after Tobias reveals his plan to take on the mantle of the Holy Thief, executes you. C'est la vie.
