I don't just fight for the OverWorld! I fight for all of Perim!
In the Animation, during the M’arrillian Invasion, since Chaor was gone after the events of Underworld Overthrown and both Odu-Bathax and Prince Mudeenu were busy conducting the military side of the operation, with training, planning and overall coordination, Maxxor was up to the task of facing Aa’une, the M’arrillians’ Ruler, alone, by transporting himself to City of Ma’arr using the Telebracers Bodal and Olkiex were working on.
Even with Tartarek, the head of OverWorld’s spy network, providing an apparently solid and quite convincing infiltration plan, given the M’arrillians’ telepathy and mind-controlling abilities, Maxxor wisely thought about having a secret backup plan of his own. The outcome was Maxxor equipping himself with the powerful Xerium Armor, a unique half-body golden armour with an independent lion-head shaped helmet, ornamented gauntlets and a cuisse, with a thick black belt, a golden-embroidered red cloak and a toga partially visible around his waist, that was depicted in the Animation as something with which Maxxor could have a fighting chance, as it could drastically reduce any of the insanely powerful attacks Aa’une could cast upon him.
Equipped with the Xerium Armor, comes into play the Protector of Perim, effectively exchanging his supportive ability for even more power, becoming stronger and stronger each time he gets hit by an Attack.
