Shannara Chronicles Season 2: Introducing Garet Jax, The Weapons Master

In the new season of The Shannara Chornicles, one of the characters being introduced is Garet Jax (Gentry White) a bounty hunter who is looking for Lyria (Vanessa Morgan). We see his introduction in the new video below. After Lyra and Eretria (Ivana Baquero) are taken by ravagers, Jax appears and take out all of them single handed. He then frees Eretria and talks about protecting the 'merchandise', meaning Lyria. Eretria tries to attack Jax and is knocked cold for her troubles.

Garet Jax

When we first met Lyria last episode, there is a part where Eretria refers to the fact that she knows nothing of Lyria. And now Lyria's reaction to Jax, already knowing who he was, and they way he talks about her makes it seem like perhaps she's a runaway princess or something. Jax doesn't seem to be threatened by Lyria at all.

In the Book series, Jax is known as The Weapons Master and said to have no equal in single combat. He was a mercenary, loyal to those who paid him. He traveled alone and called no one friend. He appears in one short story, The Weapon Master's Choice and two novels, The Wishsong of Shannara and Dark Wraith of Shannara.

Below the clip is a video of author Terry Brooks visiting with fans in Seattle, WA back in 2012 where he read a Garet Jax story to them (at the time unpublished), which I believe is The Weapon Master's Choice.

Jax makes his debut this Wednesday on Spike.
