Years of spying for both the Romans and the Scots, and anybody else for that matter, has made Sneakious one of the most paranoid people on the planet, apart from a succession of Roman Emperors who during this period didn't last long in power.

Sensing the Chiefs growing impatience and not wishing to lose out on what may be a lucrative piece of business, Sneakious declares he available for some spying. The Chief tasks him with finding out all he can about this new weapon the Romans have.
