This young gladiator from Karis was imprisoned after he fought against Atlas and the Synd to protect his people. Cagnazzo was shown off as a prize by a strand of the Synd that called themselves the Collectors and sought to possess impressive living specimens as trophies. These specimens were made to fight against each other in an arena while under the effects of rage-inducing stimulants. Due to his undefeated record, Cagnazzo had been exposed to these stimulants for decades, causing him to slip into a frenetic mental state whenever he is faced with battle.
In one of the first bombardments the Dredgion initiated upon its arrival to Earth, the Collectors compound was heavily damaged. Cagnazzo was thrown into a rage from the destruction taking place around him, and managed to snap the chain restraints attached to massive weights that bound his wrists in his cell. Grabbing the remaining links of chain fastened to one of the weights, Cagnazzo fought his way to freedom, only to be recovered by a Dredgion refugee recovery crew once his rage had ended. The chain and weight that bound Cagnazzo is now his signature weapon, and he fights with the Dredgion to end the reign of the Synd.
