Which UNS? Is there anything we should be reading into what Petey says, or what he specifically doesn't say, in that strip or this one?

[quote=Lota, to Petey]
Lota is the only known check on your power. Even if your goals align with Lota's, it would be dangerous for Lota to accept.

The core question that comes to mind: If Lota remained (voluntarily or not) loyal to Int-Aff-Int, and if we read the quote above from the perspective of both Petey and Lota knowing that Para was working for them, is it possible that Int-Aff-Int is cooperating with Petey? It's very obvious that Em isn't overly fond of either AI, and I think there's pretty significant evidence that Em and Max were doing things that Int-Aff-Int is offended by.

There's the issue, of course, that Lota might not need to know any more than required to perform Lota's original function. Additionally, all the evidence suggests that Para was surprised by Lota's sudden assertion of independence (far from deliberately creating Lota as a monarch that, to paraphrase the Toughs' contract in going to Credomar, served the UNS' interests). However, even if Lota is not in the know, some of my reasoning would still hold.

If Xinchub was (as suggested in another thread) trying to stop aggressive use of Redhack and similar aggressive uses of involuntary RSS modding and body-stealing, or even if he was just trying to protect his own overgrown posterior, I'd assume that he's told Petey everything he knows (if he didn't, the UNS would assume he HAD done so very soon after turning traitor, and Petey likely has other ways of gaining the information, so Xinchub has nothing to gain from holding out from Petey).

So, we're left with this question. Whom, exactly, now suspects the Toughs of calling shots for Lota, and, if that faction is working with Petey, why hasn't he corrected them?
