From the journals of Dax Northender

Position: Gunfighter / Marksman / Vigilante
Age: Unknown
Nationality: American
Birthplace: Unknown
Code Designation: 8 o'clock

The Gotham Saint wasn't my first choice for the Midnight Men, but he has since become one of the best. He originally made a name for himself during Prohibition as a vigilante crime fighter. For years, the Manhattan underworld lived in fear of this masked menace who thwarted their operations and avenged the innocents they harmed. I had little want to take New York's guardian angel out of the Big Apple, but saving the world seemed more important.

To be honest, I kept the Saint in reserve for the earlier part of our operations, until it became clear that he was absolutely unstoppable in the field. He is deadly accurate with those chrome-plated .45's, and is the only person I've ever seen able to charge a room full of armed men, flip and tumble through a rain of gunfire, and wind-up the only one standing at the end.

Before joining, I promised him that he would never be forced to reveal his face or identity to the rest of the team. Some have objected to that rule, but never with him present. It seems the reputation of the Gotham Saint is capable of intimidating even the stalwart Midnight Men.
