During the Dark Age, Shaxx was a Warlord with his own territory.1 Unlike many Warlords, however, Shaxx worked to protect the civilians within his care, which included cooperating with the Lords of Iron. While he worked with the Iron Lords, Shaxx never officially joined.2 Lord Saladin also served as Shaxx’s mentor for a time.3
Shaxx was present at the Battle of Six Fronts.4
Additionally, Shaxx was one of the key figures of the Battle of Twilight Gap. Shaxx ignored Saladin’s orders to retreat, instead leading his fireteam on a final push on the Wall; this provided the momentum needed to reclaim the city.5 Shaxx’s actions during the Battle led his relationship with Saladin to become strained.6
Following the Battle of Twilight Gap, Shaxx decided to stay within the City in order to mentor Guardians in the Crucible.7 Under Shaxx, the Crucible has evolved to have a strict code of conduct, with cheaters being banned.8 Shaxx also works with his Redjacks to secure new areas to convert into Crucible arenas.9
Shaxx disagreed with the Consensus’ decision to attack the Moon, citing the narrow victory at Burning Lake.10
Shaxx was also present for the Red Legion’s first assault on the City. He rescued Eva Levante from a group of Cabal, and the pair evacuated a group of civilians from the Tower.11 Shaxx and Arcite 99-40 eventually arrived at the Farm, returning to the City after Ghaul’s defeat.
Prior to Saint’s resurrection and return to the City, Shaxx believed that he was dead, as opposed to missing in action.12 However, the two were able to reconnect during the Guardian’s quest to create the Devil’s Ruin.13
