The Society of the Scarlet Crabs is a malevolent secret organization.
Description[edit | edit source]
The Society of the Scarlet Crabs are a malevolent group, composed of talking scarlet-colored crabs. Led by Crab Leader Scarabus, they are one of the Horde of the Violet Hare's numerous copycats-slash-rivals created by faulty brainwashing that left retired members of the organization with a compulsion to found others with similar names and goals. Beyond a vestigial lust for Atlantean treasure, the organization's primary purpose is to take over the world and collect all the shells to be found there. The Society, like many other Hare-copycats, collectively acts as an avid reader of Joe Torcivia's blog, and once got quite "crabby" trying to puzzle out a riddle posted by Torcivia.
The Society was mistakenly suspected on one occasion by Debbie to be another organization created by her housemate (and house mouse) Mervin, much like the Legion of the Chartreuse Tortoise and the Passel of the Pastel Ponies. One of the Scarlet Crabs was imprisoned in Research Laboratory 6 by the Drove of the Database-Compiling Dromedaries but freed in 2019 as part of the breakout organised by a reluctant Pessimist-242. Another, or possibly the same, Scarlet Crab was later present in Joe Torcivia's home during the Phantom Blot's burglary attempt, leading to his arrest.[UNOFF]
