Shine became a war hero in the isles during the first Rikti War. He helped two squads of Arachnos soldiers fight off a swarm of Rikti from Cap Au Diable, which lasted twelve hours. Lord Recluse ordered for him to be taken in and work for Arachnos. Shine was a bit flabbergasted after being transported to a world foreign to his own. He was originally trying to drive Rikti out from his own world but got caught on one of their ships. Shine didn't object to joining Arachnos but he was not particular fond of how split up the spiders are. He quickly accelerated through the ranks and took his rightful place as an Arbiter. He temporarily lost the title when his squad was killed off all at once from a Rogue Arbiter. After unmasking the Arbiter and stopping a plan to turn the arbiters against one another, he reclaimed his title.
He was soon hired to become a bodyguard for a brilliant telepathic scientist under the alias Derangement. While Shine finds her methods extreme, he's taken an oath to protect her.
