Involvement Edit

Season 1Edit

"Zer0 Sum"Edit

While heading to his boss' office to earn his promotion, Rhys finds out that Vasquez has taken over, and he gets demoted to "assistant vice janitor". Having overheard Vasquez talking about purchasing a Vault Key, he then heads to Pandora with Vaughn to make the purchase first using Hyperion's funds.

After running into trouble with Rudiger and his bandits, the two of them enter the World of Curiosities, an antique shop owned by Shade, where they meet up with the dealer, August, and his girlfriend Sasha.

Unbeknownst to Rhys, Vaughn and August, the key was a forgery made by Fiona, Sasha and their adoptive mentor Felix. As soon as they discover this, the deal is crashed by Bossanova and Zer0. Bossanova escapes with the money, while Rhys and Vaughn take shelter within Felix's van and makes an alliance with him, Fiona and Sasha, leaving behind a vengeful August.

Rhys attempts to track the money using an ID drive he retrieved from Professor Nakayama's corpse in the antique shop, but then collapses and blacks out. The group later finds Bossanova's base, an abandoned Atlas warehouse, and proceeds to infiltrate it. While Felix stays behind for getaway, Rhys and Sasha are separated from Vaughn and Fiona, who get recruited into a bandit death race. The two of them find a lift leading to the arena, but while trying to get it moving, Rhys' system begins to malfunction. A mysterious voice taunts him as he tries to get things working. Eventually, they manage to get away from the skags, with the help of Zer0. The three of them arrive at the center of the arena, where Bossanova is hosting the death race.

Rhys struggles to stay alive, but the briefcase is tossed around the racing arena, where Fiona and Vaughn are participating. Felix eventually recovers the case, but then announces his betrayal to Fiona. He attempts to open the case, not knowing there is a bomb linked to Vaughn's bio signature inside. The bomb explodes, destroying all the money inside (and possibly killing Felix). As the group tries to figure out what to do next, Rhys finds an underground room containing Atlas prototype tech, including a strange item displaying a map of a Vault. At this point, the voice inside Rhys' head gets clearer, and as he turns around, he finds a hologram of Handsome Jack greeting him.
