Paradox is one of the four Nexus Force factions. Led by Vanda Darkflame, the Paradox are scientists and outcasts that chose to study the Maelstrom and learn how to use its destructive power against itself. Paradox remains the only factions whose leader was not originally an Imagination Nexus explorer. The Paradox's primary facilities are on Crux Prime and the Forbidden Valley in the Crux System. Their facility in Avant Gardens was destroyed by the Maelstrom.
Paradox's motives and techniques are often questioned by non-Nexus Force members due to them dabbling in a dangerous power. Paradox has come under more fire as former Paradox members led by Ronald Alexander formed their own organization whose goal was to rid the Earth of minifigs via Mutant Dinos.
