Despite being a failed copy of the torivors, the Maumet cannot think as advanced as the lurkers do; it does, however, possess a little curiosity as shown when it turns to new materials around him. The Maumet also possesses a bit of intelligence, as shown when fighting Jasher: it transformed into the toughest material available. When threatened, it will discontinue its curiosity and immediately transform into the toughest material possible.
Powers and Abilities Edit
The Maumet has the ability to shift into any substance that it touches. It can change into wood, iron, even torivorian steel. It uses this ability to guard the Celestine Library.
- The Maumet is very curious. It will change into any new material that it encounters.
- When a limb is chopped off, the Maumet can shift mass from elsewhere on his body to regrow the limb.
During the Maumet's imprisonment on Windbreak Island, Jason Walker and the rest of the Delegation reach the island looking to enter the Celestine Library to uncover information that would lead to towards learning of a way to defeat Maldor. The group attempts to storm the island and defeat the Maumet using torivorian swords. However, this those not work as the Maumet kills many of them and transforms into torivorian steel. The surviving members of the expedition retreat to their boat in order to confer on the best way of getting to the library. Multiple ideas are discussed until Jason starts thinking about the prophecy given by Esmira. He realises that the part stating, "and like the flash of orantium” might apply here. He realises that by crushing orantium in the special slime used to transport it he can make sure it doesn't explode while also allowing the Maumet to come into contact with it. This would mean that the Maumet, being inquisitive by nature, will touch the orantium in the slime and transform into it, causing him to explode. The orantium is crushed in a bucket filled with the special slime and dropped on the island along with multiple other items that will wet the Maumet's appetite for transformations. The Maumet rifles through other materials before finally coming in contact with the bucket and the orantium within, causing him to explode and die, allowing Jason and the team to enter the Celestine Library.
