"You can't kill me! I'm already dead tomorrow!"
Paladin was one of the first test subjects that underwent an altered form of cybernetic enhancement of which eventually resulted in the creations of Juggernaut and Nox. Originally a trooper for Pavor Nocturnus, Paladin was among many selected for the program to be experimented upon - after enduring strenuous physical hardship, he was one of very few to survive the process. Like many other experiments, Paladin's psychology was altered, becoming somewhat similar to Trailblazer.
Having survived one bout of alteration, Paladin was later selected to have a second set of experimentations, which had fitted a laser beam projectile into the left palm of his hand.
Personality and Behaviour
Though not as psychologically damaged as Trailblazer, Paladin is often placed in hazardous operations to accommodate his proclivity for violent situations and the desire to kill. Because of this, he is rarely paired up with Trailblazer on the account of the two eventually fighting each other due to an explosive conflict in personality.
Powers and Abilities
Fitted with a anti-vehicular laser beam projectile in his left hand, Paladin is capable of widespread destruction once the laser is primed and charged to use. Perhaps the most geared towards a gunfight out of all the Pavor Nocturnus operatives, Paladin has widespread knowledge of the usage of firearms. The respirator surgically attached to his face regulates his breathing, and though not inexhaustible, Paladin's stamina and capabilities of extreme feats are greater than that of most Pavor Nocturnus operatives.
Faults and Weaknesses
Largely suited towards attacking the enemy, Paladin ultimately lacks the defensive power to keep up with the most able of the Pavor Nocturnus operatives despite his enhanced abilities. To compliment his lack of endurance, he is most commonly paired with Juggernaut or Titan. Paladin's temperament can also throw him into a rage, and though this may provide some physical benefits, Paladin has little mental coordination once pushed past the limit.
- Xho's liking for the cosmetics that Paladin wears is what made Paladin similar to certain characters in the Borderlands series of games.
