|— McCreary threatening Murphy [src]|
At some stage in the past, McCreary was a mob/cartel enforcer from a powerful crime syndicate. He was convicted of mass murder and sentenced to an unknown term of hard labor with the Eligius Corporation aboard the ship Eligius IV, mining an asteroid in space. However, in 2047, McCreary participated in a prisoner uprising which was successful in taking over the Eligius vessel. During a mutiny, McCreary also killed the ship's doctor. After breaching the bridge, McCreary slits Captain Stevens' throat, before moving on to execute two more members of the crew who had been held hostage. He and the rest of the prisoners were then put into cryo-sleep for the long journey back to Earth.
According to Shaw, McCreary was once the leader of the prisoners, but gave control up to Diyoza after she led the mutiny on Eligius IV. There are still prisoners that prefer to follow him rather than Diyoza, and as of the end of 'Sic Semper Tyrannis' they are split into two groups, those who follow Diyoza and those who follow McCreary. The prisoners, who follows McCreary, may have been presumably part of his mob cartel, before their imprisonment, as Emori mentions that one of the prisoners with a prison tattoo, works for McCreary.
Throughout the Series
In False Gods, when Raven introduces herself to Hatch he remembers her as McCreary's "guest" and comments that he does not miss "that jackass." Nikki counters that McCreary never would've settled for a squatter's camp for his people. In The Queen's Gambit, Diyoza tells Hope that she can thank her real father for the Earth being destroyed twice. Hope states that her mother never told her about McCreary and asks Diyoza to tell her everything about him. Diyoza describes McCreary as a psychopath and a killer who she only had sex with to get McCreary on her side during the uprising on Eligius IV. Diyoza states that it wasn't her best decision, but it led to the best that ever happened to her: Hope.
McCreary is heartless and cold. However, he cares about his unborn daughter's life.
Paxton is a tall white male, with long brown hair in the middle with a buzz cut on either side of his head and a full beard. He wears the armor of the former security guards including a stamped service badge on the right chest plate.
Eligius IV, due to this she got pregnant with their child. Diyoza told him that he is her favorite mass murderer. Diyoza and McCreary have a lot of disagreements about leading the Eligius prisoners, even when Diyoza refused to trade McCreary with Raven Reyes after he was captured by John Murphy and Emori, which made McCreary very upset with her. When Murphy told McCreary that Abby's medical treatment helped cure Diyoza's people, McCreary got angry at Diyoza for keeping this a secret from him. He then tries to kill her but, but stops when she reveals that she is pregnant. Despite Diyoza being the mother of his unborn daughter McCreary told her right after the baby would be born he was going to kill her. This never happened as McCreary got killed by Clarke after he made Earth an unsurvivable planet. Diyoza did not feel upset by his death because of his despicable actions.
