Morax first appears in Sector Antlia as a boss in the B2F of the sector. He has a desire to destroy humanity because of the violence they've caused. He asks the protagonist whether he thinks that the demons are the real heroes for doing this. The protagonist's answer affects his alignment. After the dialogue, the protagonist proceeds to fight Morax. When Morax is defeated, he drops the Rosetta for Antlia and a rare forma that unlocks new Sub Apps in the lab. He is also unlocked as a special fusion, and can be created by fusing Itsumade, Oni and Melchom.
