I tried not to kill you, but here you are, and Shumway said no witnesses.
— Dax to Clarke. [src]

Dax was a recurring character in the first and third seasons. He was one of the Delinquents sent to Earth to see if it can support human life. He was employed by Commander Shumway to assassinate Bellamy Blake, after the latter had failed to kill the Chancellor. Dax was killed at the end of Day Trip, after being stabbed in the neck by Bellamy.

Throughout the Series

In Earth Skills, Dax follows Octavia to the dropship to test Atom's loyalty to Bellamy. Octavia makes it to the top level of the dropship but as Dax is climbing the ladder, he is pulled down by Atom.

In Murphy's Law, Dax is seen working on the wall surrounding the camp. When Murphy is accused of killing Wells Jaha, Dax watches the conflict. Not long after, him and Connor are the first two Delinquents to beat Murphy and ultimately watch him get hung and cut down when Charlotte reveals herself as the real murderer.

In Day Trip, Dax is seen working on meat duty until Clarke tells him his mother is waiting to talk to him on the radio. However, he instead finds Commander Shumway who offers to get his mother on the first dropship to Earth if he kills Bellamy. Dax agrees to the offer and follows Bellamy and Clarke into the woods and to the underground bunker where they find some guns.

Bellamy eventually leaves the bunker and Dax ambushes Clarke and knocks her out. Taking a gun with him, Dax tracks down Bellamy and attempts to shoot him but the bullet in his gun is a dud. Clarke then shows up and tries to talk Dax down from killing Bellamy, but he tells her about his deal with Shumway and asks her to just leave. When she doesn't, he decides to kill her too; a fight then breaks out between Dax, Bellamy, and Clarke where he appears to get the better of the two until Bellamy grabs a fallen bullet and manages to stab Dax in the neck, killing him.

In Join or Die, Dax is brought into a room with other delinquents to be taught Earth skills by Charles Pike unknowing that he was going to be sent to the ground. Dax shows interest when Pike begins to make fire. During the span of two weeks, the delinquents don't retain the information taught by Pike. During their last class, Pike begins to hit John Murphy. When Pike shoves Murphy and throws him across the room Dax immediately reacts and attempts to pull Pike off him before the guards are alerted. Dax is later directed into the dropship which is sent to Earth with The 100.


Dax is a violent individual having beaten a man to death for stealing from him. He was also one of the first to beat Murphy and was willing to kill Bellamy and Clarke. Though he does care about his mother as he made a deal with Commander Shumway to get her to Earth.
