Maurice was a vampire who lived in Chicago and he was also a waiter that worked in the upmarket restaurant "Il Secundo".
Ennis Ross speaks with Maurice, the maitre d', about hiding his engagement ring in a glass of champagne, when they are interrupted by Sal Lassiter. Maurice ignores Ennis to accompany Sal to the private club in the back, and as they leave Ennis catches a glimpse of the bodyguard Marv's face in the mirror where his reflection is grotesque.
Maurice later appears when he attempts to clean up the mess made in the private club after it was attacked by Irv Sokolowski. Maurice later found Ennis hiding in the club. Ennis confronts him and tells him to surrender, but instead of surrendering to him, Maurice tried to feed on him.
