Come on, guys... Don't hold it against me. I just wanted to turn you idiots in and have the town you stole the money from chanting my name. Is that so much to ask for?
~ Axton to the local bandits


Axton is a Vault Hunter and a former member of DAHL's private military force. A glory-seeker by nature, his constant insubordination and reckless behavior led him to botch numerous important missions, leading his frustrated wife (who happened to be his superior officer) to divorce him and dishonorably discharge him from the military. After she "suggested" that he go AWOL to avoid his impending execution, he became a mercenary-for-hire until he was brought to Pandora by promises of action and glory while searching for the Vault.
