Magnificent Bastard: Gord, upon receiving news of the Moral Event Horizon below, instead of simply trying to stop the plot, breaks into his own store and takes back all his stuff, completely pulling the rug out from under them.
Moral Event Horizon: The whole Apocalypse Book. To make it short: Landlord's Agent has been pocketing money, and blaming it on the Gord's store. Gord is overseas at the time he learns this, having left the store in the care of the Guardian. But the Guardian helps the Agent seize the assets of the store. This leads to some of the Gord's friends breaking into his own store and stripping the entire place clear of everything, so the Agent and Guardian get nothing and lose their jobs. And, if they attempt to report Gord to the police, they would eventually have to explain the massive fraud they were about to commit versus the technically illegal theft.
