Character History

A little is known about Dante before he came to Paragon, but the full story has not been revealed. Although lucky in life, his love life has suffered, having gone through two divorces.

Pre-Paragon DJ Pheonyx

Dante Andersen was an agent for a secret spy organization known only as "The Foundation". He was promoted to the highest echelons of the organization, known as The Lords. Each Lord chose a title of their expertise (such as "Lord of Combat" or "Lord of Invention"), and Dante was known as the "Lord of Cyberspace" due to his elite hacking skills. The Foundation's activities were blown open during an event in 2003 known as "The Mouthwash Confession" in which many agency black ops were reported clandestinely to the media. He then retired from "The Great Game" with his now first wife Alexis Fairchild, a fellow agent and possessor of enhanced physical combat abilities. Shortly after his forced retirement from The Foundation, his powers manifested and the couple moved to Paragon.

DJ Pheonyx in Paragon

Dante learned to control his abilities while looking for something to do in Paragon. He saw a classified ad calling for DJs for The Cape Radio, he auditioned and got the job as a Saturday night DJ before moving to Wednesday nights, then late Monday nights. He has now returned to Saturdays, but in the afternoon from 5PM to 8PM Eastern.

Dante divorced Alexis shortly after arriving at Paragon, and soon met Elyse Duncan aka DJ Inque. They were married in late February 2008, but that marriage fell apart quickly. Dante met and fell in love with Suja Anders (aka Firosa), who can also control fire, during a hospital visit for morale purposes for the patients there. Suja's wings were ripped from her back and he arranged to have a new set grafted to her. They got engaged during the EROS event February 13, 2009 and married June 5, 2009. He does have access to the Etoile or Rogue Islands under the name Dee Jay Pheonyx.
