Jax was found by a member of the Thuranni Stonespur. His training started as soon as he was able to walk, talk and run. Despite being brought in as in infant, Jax became a prodigy amongst all that new recruits. He literally put them all to shame. His trainers were astounded by his progress in the arts and had him doing missions by the time he was 13 years old. Never once did he fail his tasks. This continued for several years.
At the age of 18, he had become an instructor as well as a part of the shadow network. For 2 years he instructed new recruits in the arts. However, this soon became boring. He resigned from the Shadow Network on good terms and still held many connections within the network itself. He worked freelance for a year before the guild picked him up. His skills had been whispered of in the darker corners of the guild until the big boss caught wind of them. Jax was employed immediately. He quickly earned the nickname “Shinigami” Jax due to his perfect kills and failure free record as well as the blank white masks he had to tendency to always wear. he became widely known, feared, and respected.
Shortly after he joined the guild, he picked up Aria. She had a talent for sneaking around and Jax got the urge to train her because of the raw talent she had. Giving in to his urge, he trained her for several years before she to was sent off to do dangerous missions, just as Jax once had. When ever she returned successful, it filled Jax with pride; like that of a proud parent.
Jax was enjoying some down time with Aria when he got a rather top secret request. Getting bad feeling about the mission, Jax gave Aria his prized mask(having several different ones) and bid her a heart felt goodbye.
