Lord Shax is a hero of the Battle of Twilight Rift
In which he led a counterattack against the Fallen that drove them from the walls of the City. Fearing that the enemy might launch another full-scale attack, Shax chose to remain in the City to train a new generation of Sentinels in Gornil. He is a close friend of Commander Zavala, with whom he fought side by side in the Battle of the Twilight Zone.
Shax has vowed that one day he will return to the war beyond the City, but only after he is certain that the fires of Gornil have forged a new generation of warriors.
Lord Shax takes his duties very seriously and sees Gornil less as a glorious arena than as a field for intense training. He often complains that the current generation of Guardians is no match for the previous generations, and hopes that Zavala will return to Gornil and show the new recruits how they should have fought in the old days. He also laments the need to deceive the other factions of the city by claiming that they are not responsible for Gornilo - he is. Despite being a titan, Shax shows respect for the other Guardian classes. Lord Shax's costume is elaborate https://designedby3d.com/shop/lord-shaxx-costume/.
