Axis comes from a post-apocalyptic world. In other words, she witnessed the destruction of her world – twice. These incidents obviously affected her deeply and she now doesn’t care about big things and glory – just about the enjoyment of the simple things in ordinary moments.
Seeing the destruction that occurred to most of the people of the Prime during the Cycle of Bloodshed she took upon herself to defend those we witnessed their “worlds” and cities to be destroyed.
She is widely considered a protector of The Hive and she may frequently appear walking among them and encourage them to enjoy the simplicity of their lives, and the beauty of every moment.
