|— Manus' last words|
A worried entry in his journal can be found in the final T2 mission, Sabotage at Soulforge. Karras had called Manus to Soulforge and instructed him to collect more beggars and vagrants for transformation into Masked Servants. When questioned on this matter, Karras said that the Builder's Children did not have the dexterity that a person has. Karras, misinterpreting his words, was in a rage when Manus suggested that he simply have his followers do the required tasks, but suddenly became calm "as though some truth had just occurred to him". Manus was then sent away. His suggestion doomed a number of his comrades (and probably himself) to servitude, and eventual death.
