- "The climax was the devastation of 2111, Minax's greatest triumph, when ancient civilizations born of love and beauty, wisdom and reason, turned on one another in hatred and destroyed most of the very earth that had nurtured them. If it were not for the time doors, we would not be here now. Only the ability to move in time enabled any living thing to survive..."
- -- from the writings of Lord British
Minax was the young female apprentice and lover of Mondain, also a great villain of Britannia. As revenge for her mentor’s death, Minax has sought to destroy the world.
She has been seen in-game on several occasions, such as when she led an undead invasion of the City of Trinsic and during the Age of Shadows expansion when she led a series of attacks on Britannia. During that event cycle, she was seen in the bottom level of the dungeon Destard, wielding a powerful artifact called the Doom Kiss.
Mondain's LegacyBritannia was mostly limited through communication notes from the Travesty, the Peerless of The Citadel located in the Tokuno Islands.
