The Original Mordus Challenge from Weekly Themed Solos 1:
Salarian legends tell of a Salarian Engineer considered a genius among his already intellectually advanced people. He dedicated close to a decade of work to the development of a shotgun designed to force an exit strategy for teams within the Salarian Task Force (STG) whose primary objective was to extract compromised undercover operatives. Some say that he dedicated every fabric of his being to this project, so much so, that he eventually went mad, showing signs of acute psychosis and a split in his personality. Some feel his dual personality is manifest in the dual fire modes of the Venom.
On the eve that the weapon was finally completed and perfect in the eyes of the creator, Firebase Jade was attacked by Cerberus. The engineer was the last remaining Salarian on the base. In a fit of madness-induced rage, he beheld his newly finished masterpiece and proceeded to wreak havoc on the hostiles. He defeated an entire Cerberus unit alone and disappeared, never to be seen again.
He is remembered as Mordus. Many soldiers still engrave that name on their Venom Shotguns today in respect of the creator of such a power.
