Maxis Erwin is admiral of King Xyrie Validikus's naval fleet. He is often depicted as a pirate, vagabond, criminal, but he has little time to care for what others say. He is a powerful swordsman, ruthless warrior, and fights against the Corrupted Armada with an enthusiasm unlike any other. He treats Corrupted prisoners with no mercy and hates Zylar because his family was killed during a seaside raid.
He is very strong and protective towards the Crimson Kingdom. He spends most of his time on his ships, and comes on shore to repair, rest, stock up, drink away the night at taverns or enjoy himself at the local brothels. He has no mercy towards anyone affiliated with the Corrupted Kingdom because of his experience. He lacks social skills but the people who have fought alongside the admiral or had social experiences with the man know he is a good person.
As a mortal, he has no powers but relies on his brute strength.
He is extremely vulnerable to magic attacks.
