Yex loves to tinker and gather resources others discard as worthless. This allows him to get potentially great bargains and take his time building them up to working order. He is quite security conscious and sets many distractions and concealment techniques to make everyone believe his warehouses are worthless. Collecting derelict vehicles of all types is what brings Yex to the attention of Ry when he, Lyc and Yana require a new space faring vessel.

The deal goes sideways when the people hunting the trio catch up and Yex is forced to flee with the others or face death. As a Vigaj, Yex seeks any and all knowledge that could bring him closer to the Ultimate Evolution, the primary goal of his entire race. Yana's vendetta provides an avenue he hasn't investigated, so he joins the crew and is embroiled into the events of The Shroud of the Gods novel and the rest of the Gatekeeper Trilogy.
