Box of Socks Maybe Files

Dust billows as the file box lands on the table. While many archives in the Interdimensional Rumor Mill are unified in some way, this... definitely isn’t one of them. The accompanying Rumor Registry explains all of the contents... wherever it is... but for now you grab the folder labelled IF-27.733 and start reading...

"I heard that Socks Maybe is just a regular cat!"

"Wow, we're so lucky to have a cat on our team!"


Maybe is, in all respects, a regular orange cat. When not practicing blaseball, she's often spotted skulking around Chicago, sporting her iconic cat suits, and terrorizing vermin. When asked about how she keeps her look so fresh, Maybe responded with a calm meow before wandering off (Maybe was not pressed for comment, as it is best not to overwork a cat with these things).

Human Strength

Empirically, Maybe possesses strength greater than that of most cats. While some have called this strength comparable to that of a human, the general consensus in the Fire House is that Maybe's strength is equal to that of a tiger, or another similarly large feline. The exact source of her strength is is currently unknown, though it is theorized that her diet of grass and other houseplants contributes to some degree.
