Named Fuse, the maverick grew up as a freedom fighter on Salvo, developing an affinity for explosives during his many missions and raids alongside his childhood friend. As Fuse becomes more engrossed in participating in the planet’s fighting pits, his relationship with his friend deteriorates. One day, Salvo announces his decision to join the Syndicate planets and Fuse tells his friend that he’ll be leaving to participate in the Apex Games, setting her off in a rampage and causing a fight between the two. The altercation ends with a golden grenade exploding, tearing off Fuse’s right arm.
