Maximilian was one of the original dolphins that came to Pern during the First Crossing. When Thread fell on Pern for the first time, he and the other dolphins tried to warn the humans that the native marine life was acting strangely. Maximilian tried without success to rescue Eric Hegelman when he was hit by Thread.
Maximilian was one of the seventy dolphins that answered the red alert recall sequence that Jim Tillek rang on the big bell at Monaco Bay. The red recall was initiated to request assistance with the evacuation of Landing during the volcanic eruptions. Maximilian and the other dolphins helped the ships that carried goods from Landing to Kahrain and then made the Second Crossing to Fort Hold in the north.
