Mondo Zax is the Chief Technologist for DRED - the Dominion Research and Experimentation Division. Brilliant, maniacal and vindictive, Mondo Zax spends his time devising new and interesting ways to exploit planet Nexus while simultaneously destroying his enemies as painfully as possible.
As the thirteenth child of a less than illustrious Chua family, Mondo Zax was fighting for survival from a very early age. As the undisputed runt of the Zax family, Mondo unsuccessfully battled his siblings for vital resources such as clothing and food, as well as defending himself daily from their physical and mental abuses. The situation only began to improve when members of Mondo's sibling's began to disappear under mysterious and unexplained circumstances.
Mondo hoped his newly acquired only child status might bring him closer to his father, a vacu-bot repairman with whom he shared a passion for machines. But a heated argument over engineering principles led to a familial schism between the two - one that was left unresolved when Mondo's father was inexplicably vaporized during a routine bot recalibration. Without a legal guardian, Mondo was sent to an orphanage, again finding himself in overcrowded, territorial surroundings.
Along with his size and general bad attitude, unsavory rumors surrounding his family's demise led to bullying from his peers. His peskiest antagonist was a thuggish alpha named Finkle Blurg, whose reign of terror ended when Mondo zapped him with a home-grown particle destabilizer. Mondo’s mechanical ingenuity attracted the attention of the empire, and within weeks, he was installed aboard a research vessel and given supervision of DRED - the Dominion’s Research and Experimentation Division.
Since then, Mondo's name has become synonymous with mechanical genius, and DRED has been responsible for developing the empire's most advanced technology - such as the mighty Planet Reapers that continue to ravage planet Arboria. Excited by the discovery of Nexus, Mondo has constructed an orbital research station known as ZLAB to serve as his headquarters, and from there devises schemes of domination, exploitation, and mass carnage.
