AJ, the Relentless (also known as AJ, the Ringmaster, AJ, Captain AJ, and Jay Mertens) is a Guardian, who is from another Dimension. He is known for having a very strong connection to the Void, as well as being famous for wielding the Hand cannon, called: Firebringer.



For his story.

Becoming a Guardian[edit]

When a Vex Axis Mind, known as: Menkrodos, the Dimensional Mind, who has the ability to look through and pull things out of a Dimension, AJ would be lulled from his Dimension by an accident, however upon seeing this, Menkrodos would kill AJ. However, after a couple of years, prior to the Wolf Rebellion, AJ would be resurrected by a Ghost, named Cinnamon, who would guide AJ out of a Vex territory on Venus, AJ would arrive to the The Last City. Where, he would begin his journey as a Guardian.

  • AJ was originally a Titan, but was changed to a Warlock instead, due to his ablilties and a little bit of his personality. But still has some aspects from Titans, such as his sobriquets, echoing from his original class.
  • Despite AJ being Warlock, he has some traits from Titans and Hunters, that only hunters and titans are known to have, such as the ability: Vanish in Smoke, that only Nightstalkers are known to have, as well as having a similar manner to Hunters. While he has the strength of a Titan, such as Shoulder charge, and one-time using the Crown-Splitter, a weapon exclusive for Titans, to defeat a platoon of Cabal.
  • AJ is also known to be a Jedi, however this is not really shown that much, the only times he ever did so was when he was Finding Force-sensitive Eliksni, and during the Shadowkeeper Apocalypse.

List of appearances[edit]


  1. ^ nicknamed by Marcus Ren
  2. ^ tited by The Nine Emissary
  3. ^ This weapon isn't really a Power Weapon, as it is AJ's personal weapon from his own dimension, but since it's a Sword, it can be inferred to be a Power.
