Pax was a mercenary and member of Sarge's Squad. He travelled to Earth with his team in an attempt to save the planet from Izel and the Shrikes. Although he questioned Sarge's methods, he obeyed his leader's orders during the Robbery of Charmont Jewelers and the Attack on Deke Shaw. Pax was captured by S.H.I.E.L.D., where he revealed information about Sarge's plan in an attempt to save his own life. He was freed by his leader, but was captured again by Yo-Yo Rodriguez. When brought in front of Sarge, the latter shot and killed Pax with his gun.
- "That image scarred me for life. I mean not as badly as the guy who had his face fried off, because he's dead."
- ―Pax to Jaco
Due to an invasion across the galaxy of the Shrike that were destroying entire planets, Pax joined up with Sarge's Squad as they then traveled the galaxy in an attempt to destroy their creator, Izel. He became good friends with fellow teammate Tinker. During their crusade, they tracked Izel to Chronyca-2 and killed her crew. Unfortunately, they arrived too late since the Shrike had already began to destroy the planet. Izel then managed to escape and Sarge's crew were forced to flee the planet before it’s ultimate destruction. During their missions, Pax also used their Shelter Charges multiple times, becoming utterly horrified by the effect that they had on bodies.
- "This is gonna take a minute. And I'm ninety percent that a band of natives just pulled up with an axe to grind. Do you want to buy us some more time, Snowflake?"
- ―Pax and Snowflake
Pax came to Earth through a portal, accompanied by Snowflake, as they were immediately met by Jaco, who was waiting for them and noted that he was not sure if they would make it through or not. As Pax asked Jaco to put down the blaster, Snowflake asked where Tinker was, as Jaco explained that he had failed to make it through his portal, becoming encased in concrete and was killed. Pax then asked about Sarge's crossing, as Jaco explained that it was in the middle of a museum, to which Pax agreed to go and blow it up.
Together, the Squad headed to the Museum of Natural History where Sarge would be arriving shortly, While Pax noted that it was time to make some ripples. As they headed into the centre of the museum, Pax began to plant their bombs as S.H.I.E.L.D. arrived on the scene, with Pax asking Snowflake to distract them while he and Jaco then finished setting up the bombs. While Snowflake distracted the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Pax and Jaco made their escape before the museum was obliterated, allowing Sarge's Truck to burst straight through, as the Squad regrouped and made their escape from the scene.
Having successfully managed to bring Sarge to Earth, Pax and the rest of their Squad then went about collecting supplies, as they went inside a nearby gas station and began taking what they wanted, with Pax holding Amit hostage while all the others stole anything that they wanted. Pax had noted that Earth had everything that they wanted, claiming that this mission would be childs play for them. Sarge then asked Pax about the kind of currency that Humans used, as Pax had explained that they used paper with faces printed on them, as Sarge noted that at least this paper would be lighter than using coins.
Pax watched on as Sarge noticed that Amit was considering fighting back against them, before he took Amit's shotgun, which he noted used simple combustion technology to fire, much to the delight utter of Snowflake. Having gotten everything that they all wanted for their current mission, including food supplies as well as maps and Amit's stereo, the Squad then walked out the gas station together. Once the rest of the Squad had gone, Pax entertained himself by threatening to shoot the terrified Amit, before rejoining the rest of their Squad, as they got in the truck and drove away, turning the truck invisible.
Tensions in the Squad
As their Squad continued making their way through Ohio, Pax swiftly became annoyed since Jaco had continued to breath in gases to get used to the Earth's atmosphere. Becoming annoyed by that smell and lack of clean air, Pax began complaining since he had only just eaten for the first time in days, although Sarge insisted that Jaco needed to do that since he had not had his home atmosphere in years and they needed Jaco at full strength before they went ahead.
Pax was then ordered by Sarge to check the battery on their truck to ensure that they stayed invisible, although he complained that he did not know how that worked since this had been Tinker's job before he turned to stone, as Jaco noted that it was actually cement. Pax then became horrified as he noticed that Snowflake was going through all of Tinker's gear, but she explained that she was actually confirming that they were out of PEGS, since Tinker had kept all their remaining PEGs in his pockets. Frustrated by that situation, Pax had noted that this was not his fault, before Sarge questioned what he meant.
Becoming frustrated, Pax finally spoke up and told Sarge that Tinker and the rest of them should have made the journey onto Earth in the truck, although Sarge noted that if they did that then they would have been encased in the Museum of Natural History. Snowflake had then noted that they always sent someone in first, although Pax noted that this was usually Jaco on his own as he was basically indestructible. Pax complained that they made a scene as Snowflake got Fox killed, noting that Sarge allowed her to get away with this which resulted in the plan going completely to hell and them losing Tinker as a result.
While Pax had claimed that while he would not have done anything differently than how Sarge was doing things, he was unwilling to go out digging for PEGs again. This resulted in Jaco getting to his feet, unwilling to allow Pax to speak to Sarge that way, as Pax had then immediately stopped speaking, fearful of Jaco's strength. Jaco then handed Pax an article about Charmont Jewelers, as Sarge noted that Earth seemingly did have everything they had needed, ordering Pax to help him secure an exit, as Pax claimed that his outburst was due to his grief over the death of Tinker, who had been his friend.
Checking the Area
- "You know, why not take a breath here? This place has sugar water, blue sky. Maybe kick back before it's reduced to ash."
"Sounds like powering down."
"Or charging up, right? I mean, didn't you ever take a load off back in your home turf, your past life or whatever?"
- ―Pax and Sarge
Arriving at the containment unit site, Pax joined Sarge while they had attempted to check the area to ensure that it was a good stop for the escape route. Sarge noted that it was good to have breathable area once again, while Pax noted that it would be a shame to see Earth be destroyed, as they discussed if there would be any resistances from the area, to which Sarge then confirmed that this would be the ideal area for their mission to go ahead, claiming it would be fun.
Pax commented that each member of their Squad had their unique definitions of the word fun, as Sarge had then noted that Pax would undoubtedly bore him with his definition. As they walked through the area, Pax suggested that they should all enjoy the planet, as it had several luxuries for them to enjoy before it was reduced to ash, while questioning if Sarge had allowed himself to relax back on his home planet in his past life, noting that one day Sarge would have to tell them about his past, although Sarge had made it extremely clear that he was not interested in sharing this information with anybody.
Before they could continue their conversation, Pax and Sarge were then interrupted by the arrival of a security guard, who questioned if either of them had any identification confirming that they were both allowed to be in there. Attempting to resolve the situation peacefully and without any death, Pax smiled and claimed that there was simply some miscommunication and that they were almost done. However, the security guard was unconvinced by Pax's excuses as he tried to call the police, resulting in Sarge shooting at him with a laser gun, as the security guard dived for cover as Pax and Sarge escaped.
- "This place was supposed to have the good stuff. Where the hell is it?"
"Time's a factor now."
- ―Pax and Sarge
As their robbery went ahead, Pax entered Charmont Jewelers in the guise of the customer after Sarge and Snowflake, which had allowed them to surround the security team while Sarge spoke to Dana, who they intended to capture in order to force her to give them what they wanted. Once he got the signal from Sarge that they were ready to go, Pax had watched Snowflake slaughter all of their security guards, commenting that not everyone she killed became a butterfly as she hoped, before they took Dana as a hostage, despite her pressing the alarm button.
Pax followed Sarge and Snowflake as they forced Dana to open the safe where she kept the most valuable items, as Pax had placed an explosive device on the safe door to ensure that nobody could open it and stop them. While Snowflake kept her knife to Dana's throat and had promised that death was simply the beginning of a beautiful journey, Pax and Sarge then created a portal on the wall, which had allowed Jaco to step into the vault from their truck, before they then began going through all of the drawers in the vault to find what they were looking for, although they still struggled to find anything.
Having spent a good amount of time searching, Pax complains that they had only found the diamonds that were pretty much useless to them. Having gotten little results, Pax complained that this place was supposed to have the PEGs that they needed, as they then realized that S.H.I.E.L.D. had just arrived on the scene and were attempting to break into the vault, putting the Squad on a time limit to complete the robbery. Eventually, Sarge and Jaco managed to explain to Dana what it was that they wanted to get away with, as Dana had then told them where all of their crystals were kept, much to Pax's delight.
Pax and Sarge then went through the portal and back onto the truck in order to test out these crystals, as Pax told Jaco to take anything that he could find as it would all be worth something on Earth. While Pax looked everything cover, Sarge stepped outside in order to test the crystals in his gun, only for Pax to hear a knock at the door just a few seconds later. Once Pax went to open the door, assuming that it was Sarge having completed his test faster than he had expected, he was punched in his face by Melinda May, who furiously demanded to know where Sarge was while Pax had gotten back onto his feet.
Having recovered from the first punch, Pax had readied himself and began fighting against May, who had quickly proved herself to be a vastly superior fight to Pax, as she managed to block all his punches and then threw him around the truck with ease. Seeing that he was outmatched by May, Pax attempted to get a weapon, only for May to trip him which caused him to flip over onto his back. Landing on his back, Pax called out to Jaco and Snowflake for some help, only for May to then land a heavy punch to the face, which had knocked Pax unconscious before Jaco and Snowflake could come help him.
Having begun tracking the targets, Pax teamed up with Jaco as they had gone after Harold Simcoe in Reno. Following the signal that was being given out, they had eventually tracked down Simcoe as he was attempting to board a bus and go to South Sioux City, as Jaco had confirmed that Simcoe was their mark while Pax armed himself with his laser gun. However, Simcoe saw Pax and Jaco watching him, as he turned around and made a desperate attempt to escape while Jaco and Pax followed closely after him.
However, this proved to be part of their plan as Pax and Jaco forced Simcoe to run straight into an alleyway where Snowflake managed to corner him before Sarge stepped out and pinned Simcoe against the wall, noting that they had been looking all over for him. Pax and Jaco then watched on as Sarge drew a blade and stabbed Simcoe in the chest, killing the winged creature hidden inside his chest and causing crystals to shoot out of Simcoe's body, as Snowflake noted that he was no longer a butterfly. Once Simcoe was dead, Sarge then turned to Jaco as he questioned who their next target was going to be.
- "Wait, wait, stop."
"You may be a talker, but you're still a target."
- ―Deke Shaw and Pax
Pax had then joined the rest of their Squad in focusing on their next target, Deke Shaw, as they had allowed Sarge to engage with Shaw initially in order to get close to them. However, despite Shaw initially believing that Sarge was his old friend "Coulson", eventually the truth came out as Shaw attempted to escape. When Shaw ran into Jaco by mistake, Pax attempted to shoot him dead, inadvertently killing Ray instead when he stepped into the path of blast while attempting to arrest Jaco, which had allowed Shaw to run away into the corridors of the building.
While Shaw was running away, being cornered by Snowflake along the way, Pax regrouped with Sarge and Jaco, as they had noted that Shaw was not from this world, although Jaco also noted that there was actually something different about Shaw's signature. As Sarge commented that this was strange, Jaco instead claimed that strange could be the new normal, while Pax had insisted that Shaw was the target regardless. However, Sarge insisted that they focus on the job, noting that Shaw was both a target and a talker, with Pax noting that this meant they would all make Shaw bleed before killing him.
Before long, S.H.I.E.L.D. had arrived on the scene in order to assist Shaw, as Pax and Snowflake took their positions in order to ambush the agents. Seeing that Melinda May was among all the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents who had arrived, Pax threw a smoke grenade at them, before he began firing wildly at the agents, failing at land any fatal shot. Pax then retreated, as he continued searching throughout the building for Shaw. During his search, Pax came across somebody sat behind a computer, as he considered shooting them into the back of the head, but decided not to as the man failed to even notice the situation.
However, Pax eventually managed to get the signal back for Shaw's location, as Pax found Shaw protecting Sequoia. Pax then charged out at Shaw, slashing him with his knife but failing to land a fatal blow as Shaw was currently wearing his Bulletproof Vest, with Shaw then desperately asking Pax to wait and simply listen to him, only for Pax to claim that Shaw would soon be done talking for good. Before Pax could attack him again, Shaw had then been assisted by Alphonso Mackenzie, who had managed to sneak up on Pax and then hit him hard across the back of the head, knocking him onto the floor.
Getting back onto his feet, Pax then furiously attacked Mackenzie, as he managed to land several heavy punches against him. However, when Pax attempted to wrestle Mackenzie to the ground, he learned this was a mistake as Mackenzie punched him hard across the face, which had briefly stunned Pax, allowing Mackenzie to easily gain an advantage as he punched Pax with considerable force, landing a final blow which knocked him unconscious. Shaw then stepped forward and shot Pax with his I.C.E.R. multiple times until he ran out of shots, allowing Jaco to step forward as he also attempted to kill Shaw.
Captured by S.H.I.E.L.D.
- "How am I supposed to sit down? Knowing we're all gonna die?"
"There's a plan. Now calm down."
"A plan? Nobody told me about any plan, Jaco. I swear to... If you weren't in that box, I would slit you open, climb inside and eat my way out. Screw Sarge! I'm gonna tell them everything, and maybe we'll live to see another day!"
- ―Pax and Jaco
Pax and Jaco were taken to the Lighthouse and questioned by Yo-Yo Rodriguez on what their current plans really were. However, the only information that Rodriguez was able to get out of them was what they called Sarge, but while Jaco did not talk much, Pax would never stop. When Sarge and Snowflake were captured by Melinda May and brought into the Lighthouse, they were eventually freed when Sarge told Alphonso Mackenzie how to defeat the Shrike, promising that Pax and Jaco would also be freed.
However, despite the deal being struck with Sarge that Pax and Jaco would remain in the base, they were instead placed onboard Zephyr One, with Pax being kept chained onto the wall while Jaco was put inside the Containment Module with a supply of his oxygen, much to Pax's annoyance as he demanded to know why Jaco had gotten the comfortable room while he was being treated like an animal. As Pax was ignored by Phelps who was tasked with guarding them, he then became annoyed and charged at the agent, only to be held back by his chains as Phelps ordered Pax to take a seat while Pax growled.
They were then interrupted by the arrival of Mackenzie, as Pax had still complained that they were meant to have been kept at the Lighthouse, although Mackenzie simply insisted that the Zephyr was their mobile headquarters. As Pax questioned where they would be flying to, Mackenzie had explained that they were going wherever Sarge was going, much to Pax and Jaco's concern as they knew that they would be heading towards the massive explosion. Pax then tried to insist that this was a stupid idea, but as he refused to explain what he meant, Mackenzie left him and continued to fly towards Sarge.
Frustrated and fearful about their current situation, Pax began pacing up and down the Zephyr, complaining about how they should have been safe inside the Lighthouse but were instead now flying straight towards the blast area, claiming that Sarge had sold them all out and left them to die. As Jaco told Pax to calm down, he insisted that they both knew what they were flying towards, just as Rodriguez returned and questioned what Pax was referring to. Rodriguez calmly insisted that S.H.I.E.L.D. could help them if they knew what they were facing, as Pax still insisted that they needed to turn the Zephyr around.
Rodriguez then questioned if Pax was actually scared of Izel, which had immediately caused him to be silent, surprised that S.H.I.E.L.D. knew Izel's name, claiming that they were not actually scared, while Rodriguez questioned if he and the rest of Sarge's Squad had really believed that Izel was a demon, although Jaco noted that this was a demon they could actually destroy. Having learned more about Izel, Rodriguez left to inform Mackenzie of their update, and left Pax and Jaco alone with Phelps, with Pax became increasingly frustrated that they were still heading straight towards the impending explosion.
Deciding to take action, Pax charged at Phelps, who drew his gun as he ordered him to sit down, although Pax insisted that he could not simply sit down while he had known that they were all about to die, although Jaco insisted that there was still a plan and told him to calm down. However, this only annoyed Pax more as he questioned why Sarge and Jaco never included him in the plans, furiously threatening to slit Jaco open and eat his way out of him just for keeping secrets. Annoyed, Pax then decided to betray Sarge and explain everything in order to save his own life, although Jaco told him not to be an idiot.
Pax told Phelps that Sarge had not been honest with S.H.I.E.L.D., as he insisted that if he came clean then they would have to turn their Zephyr around. As Phelps considered this, Pax then told him that he had been played, before he revealed that he had been holding back some of his chains, allowing him to get closer to Phelps and put him into a chock hold and snapped his neck. As Pax and Jaco laughed, Pax freed himself from his chains and then opened the Containment Module up for Jaco, who had first removed his jacket and threatened Pax over his recent threat to slit him open, which Pax defended.
Pax then questioned if Jaco and Sarge really had a plan, which Jaco confirmed although he noted that it was a little different now that they had been moved onto Zephyr One. As Pax sulked, Jaco questioned what was wrong as he complained that Sarge never included him in these plans, to which Jaco noted that he was bad at keeping secrets. Pax insisted that he was great at keeping secrets, noting that he had not told Rodriguez about Sarge's bomb, although Jaco noted that he almost did. While Jaco explained that they would highjack the plane, Pax questioned how they would do this, before Rodriguez returned.
Rodriguez immediately ordered Jaco to get back in the Containment Module, which he refused to do while the overly excited Pax claimed that Rodriguez did not understand who she was dealing with. Before Pax could react, Rodriguez used her Inhuman powers to knock him down and wrap him up with the chain in the blink of an eye. With Pax taken out, Rodriguez used her powers and Prosthetic Arms to knock Jaco back into the Module and locked him inside. As Rodriguez had claimed that Phelps' murder ruined their chances of being freed, Pax insisted that they would all die soon if they did not turn around.
Desperate to survive, Pax had told Rodriguez that Sarge had a bomb hidden inside his Truck that would soon destroy a massive part of the Earth. Once they were alone, Pax tried in vain to free himself, before Jaco told him to step away from his jacket, which was then revealed to have a teleporter portal spray painted onto it. Pax then witnessed Sarge step through the portal and kill the only guard, before stepping up to Jaco. While Jaco explained their current situation to Sarge, Pax stood by as Sarge jokingly questioned why they had never thought to tie up Pax with a chain, as both Sarge and Jaco laughed at him.
While Sarge and team quickly took over Zephyr One, Yo-Yo Rodriguez remained elusive. Seeing that this may be a problem for their plans, Sarge ordered the placement of a Shelter Charge, a sort of barrier which would prevent Rodriguez from entering the room, regardless of her speed. Leaving Pax on the other side of the barrier to deal with Rodriguez, Sarge continued his hostile takeover by guiding the ship towards Izel.
After several failed attempts at stopping her, Pax was eventually defeated by Rodriguez, captured and used as bait for Sarge's team to let down the barrier for a few seconds. While the barrier was down, Rodriguez used her powers to quickly enter the room where Sarge was holding her colleagues hostage and to help stop Sarge's plan. Due to this failure, Sarge turned on Pax and killed him.
