Maurice Baak is a character featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops III.
Baak grew up in a one-bedroom house with six siblings. He dropped out of school at the age of 13 to work in a factory. Living from paycheck to paycheck, Baak could never get ahead and he stumbled into a life of petty crime shortly after his father died in 2002. He bounced around towns all over Belgium and France, occasionally getting pinched for car theft, burglary and even arson.
According to a source close to THREAD COUNT, Baak was allegedly recruited by the United States Central Intelligence Agency in early 2025. His recruitment coming after Baak was nabbed in a raid by French police for smuggling a cache of guns and drugs across the border of Belgium. [Note: He and three French nationals were found with two truckloads of automatic weapons, 275 pounds of cocaine, 100 pounds of the designer drug LSZ as well as hundreds of fake passports.]
Although the details are murky, once in the employ of the CIA, Baak was (allegedly) involved in a number of illicit "Black Bag" operations in France, Belgium and the Netherlands. The CIA often hiring former criminals for these enterprises because of the convenience plausible deniability involved.
