The sentry never neglects his duties of keeping imprisoned agitators under control. His favourite technique is hanging them from the ceiling as the cell slowly fills with a sickly liquid. He tries to hide his glee as he watches their face distort with terror and their life force leave them before hoisting them up again. His tireless devotion to his work has earned him Pain's trust.
