Puppeteers use blackmail as a standard, accepted business practice. The following instances of blackmail or intent to blackmail are documented:
(b) Shortly thereafter, Bey blackmailed the same GP executive with his supposition that the hidden Puppeteer homeworld had no moon.
(c) Dr. Richard Schultz-Mann hoped to form a blackmail contract in 2644 with the Puppeteers over the location of their hidden homeworld. This would have involved him voluntarily undergoing selective memory erasure.
