During the Dark Age, Shaxx was a Warlord with his own territory. 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. Lord Saladin also served as Shaxx’s mentor for a time.
Shaxx was one of the key figures in the Battle of Twilight Gap. Shaxx ignored Saladin’s orders to retreat, instead of leading his fireteam on a final push on the Wall; this provided the momentum needed to reclaim the city. Shaxx’s actions during the Battle strained his relationship with Saladin.
In recent times, Lord Shaxx created the Crucible, an activity designed to train Guardians to become better warriors. He is assisted in his duties by Arcite 99-40, the Crucible Quartermaster. Lord Shaxx also serves as the announcer in the Crucible, with the exception of the monthly Iron Banner tournament, which is hosted by Lord Saladin Forge and Trials of Osiris, which Saint-XIV hosts.
