Background/History: Very little is revealed about the man known as Ceastus Pax (at least in the books I currently have). Rumors of possible origins somewhere in Kentucky and perhaps a military career is all that said. His real name is Shelby Esienfaust but its almost never used anymore. Ceastus Pax has been with Utopia since the beginning and made leader of its debut group "Team Tomorrow" in 1999. Since then has served as leader in combat and a bureaucratic sense, becoming overall director when the team was split up into several divisions early the century.

Pax's public persona is very much the heroic model. Bold, courageous and outspoken in his support of Utopian goals. He is brash, somewhat quick to anger and takes the physical approach to problem solving, but Utopian's spin doctors are always quick to paint even his most outrageous displays of violence (Such as when he used his "Fist of Peace" attack to knock a mercenary nova through most of city block, in the best possible light.

Personally, Pax is an arrogant blowhard. He's overbearing and a control freak that likes to micromanage the people under him. He has personal issues with a number of his team members stemming from his attitude and interference in their lives. The man is obsessed with his image and constantly consults PR reps and spin doctors to make sure his image isn't tarnished. He is well aware of the some of the awful things Utopia has done in its quest for to "better the world" and doesn't care as long he comes out looking good. He loves being the "hero" and the biggest Nova on the block and any one coming close to his power makes him seethe. That is the main reason he so hated Divis Mal and constantly challenged him until he finally got his much wanted showdown in 2008.

In a perfect illustration of the saying "Be careful what you wish for" Pax was soundly and effortlessly defeated outside of the Nova containment facility in Bahrain that day. Not only could he not defeat Divis Mal, he couldn't harm him, not even so much as muss his hair as the godlike Nova shut down Pax's powers one by one and rendered him unconscious then proceeded to blow the "prison" wide open and reveal many of Utopia's dirty little secrets contained therein. After Pax recovered, it become clear he'd learned nothing from his defeat and his desire to crush Mal only burned higher driving him to push his powers further setting him up for ever descending spiral of taint-induced madness.

Powers: Pax's considerable powers mainly revolve around the control of kinetic energy. He create devastating blast of pure force, augment his already impressive strength to incredible degree and created telekinetic like effects over a huge area. He is essentially invulnerable to most forms of physical attack and blindingly fast in battle. Pax tends to favor a brute force approach to battle and hasn't come up with many subtle uses for his powers as of yet. He has no qualms about killing but tries not to on camera. It looks bad.

Appearance: Caestus Pax cuts quite an impressive figure. He's tall and well muscled with square jaw and fierce blue eyes set in a determined and handsome face. He's nearly always seen in his Team Tomorrow uniform, a form fitting Eufiber bodysuit. Its gold left, with a broad blue band running diagonally across the chest and the rest is white with gold gloves and boots. The Team Tomorrow logo is emblazoned on the right shoulder. Pax's incredible powers have come with a cost in Taint and manifests as brilliant blue white aura whenever when he uses his powers and the complete lack of any body hair, even eyebrows. People have said that Pax's looks plastic almost too perfect like he's a life sized action figure.
