They're closing in! How did they find out? What did we miss? I thought we'd covered our tracks, but there must be something we'd forgotten. The security logs were completely erased, the inventory files were rewritten... that only leaves Doctor Morley! That bastard! He approached us saying he wanted to crack The Conspiracy wide open, and all the while he was playing us like fools! He just wanted to expose us, to bring us out into the open so they could eliminate us! Well, it's not going to work! They'll never find us and they'll never get their hands on the item!”— Reid Underwood
Doctor Morley was the head developer of the MPLX Novasurge plasma pistol and was trying to reduce its weight and ammunition consumption while making it stronger. Incidentally, Dr. Morley was also involved in Quaere Verum's attempt to expose the vast conspiracy of America's Enclave, posing as a double-agent and allowing the group to steal the Novasurge prototype before prompting Enclave agents to exterminate the group.
