"THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS PAIN, ONLY VICTORY."

He puts the 'A' in Aristeia! The epitome and defender of the grand values that define this sport, a natural-born leader, protector of his companions, and scourge of his opponents, Maximus' resplendent smile and shield-bearing silhouette fan the flames of passion in the hearts of sports fans across the Human Sphere.[2]


MAXIMUS | THE ACCLAIMED HERO

Maximus is the square-jawed hero every kid in the Human Sphere wants to grow up to become. Maximus is the ‘A’ in Aristeia!

Most Aristeia! fighters build a persona around their unique abilities and equipment, a bigger-than-life canvas on which to project a compelling story. By dint of editing and various audio-visual technologies, they forge their legend as superheroes or fearsome heels in the eyes of billions.

Maximus is no exception to this, but he also serves a political function. He lives out a message PanOceania is constantly broadcasting to Humankind at large, playing the role that the hyperpower claims to play for the Human Sphere. He’s the shield of Justice that makes order possible, the armor that safeguards the standard of living every society is entitled to. Maximus is the perfect stand-in and spokesman for his nation: Courteous and unfailingly wholesome, yet still a titanic, unassailable bulwark.

In the HexaDome, as in his many feature mayafilms, Maximus plays the lead. He offsets the limitations of his bulk with masterful positioning, and can serve his tactical roles—zone defense, man-to-man lockdown, teammate coverage—robustly despite his lack of serious firepower.

Maximus is the epitome of fair play and teamwork. He’s been at the peak of the competition for a whooping eight years and is showing no signs of slowing down.



Maximus represents the best PanOceania has to offer. Just like PanOceania, Gawain Rogers is the Number One, the best of the best. He has been Bahadur for more time than anyone, he has won more matches than anyone, he has starred in more movies than anyone, and he has sold more action figures and toy shields than anyone. Every PanOceanian kid loves Maximus and has learned more than a few moral lessons from his speeches inside and outside the HexaDome.

But time doesn’t stand still, and he’s growing old. Despite his high-tech armor and the regenerative treatments he constantly receives, no other sport has ever been as demanding as Aristeia!, both physically and psychologically, and his age is taking a heavy toll on his success ratio. There are rumors about his retirement, and some think this will be his last season, but the rock-solid PanOceanian icon is determined to prove them wrong.[3]


Maximus is the greatest Aristeia! star of all time. So much so that he's dubbed the "A" of this combat sport-show. He was already considered a superhuman before joining that elite social group known as ALEPH's Posthumans. He is an idol for millions and an example for all, endowed with a sense of duty that prevented him from remaining idle in his golden retirement after stepping down from competition. Instead, he's responded to these troubled times for the Human Sphere by collaborating with the Ankh Program of the Support Subsection and then leading the international extreme rescue team known as the Optimates. Once more, Maximus is making headlines. Once more, Maximus dazzles the Human Sphere.

Maximus's wife is from Varuna, and he was born on Neoterra. His sponsor company, Moto.tronica, is based out of Svalarheima. He works as an Optimate (alongside, for example, Dart) as a Posthuman extreme search-and-rescue operative for ALEPH.
