Maurice had always believed that cooking is an art form and had allowed his life to be steered by this. But on joining the Uppers, he realized that fighting can be seen in a similar way, so long as it's done with enough style and sophistication. He now combines his two specialties and serves up special recipes for the Clan's enemies.
As the crème-de-la-crème of the jet-set, the Uppers rule the night. They’ve got it all, and money, champagne and titles are certainly not in short supply. They generally dislike everyone but they particularly despise “the poor who just aren’t the teeniest bit funky”. The Uppers hope that the government will finally take steps to banish ugly people once and for all.
