Roekel reveals Paragon, who proceeds to complete an obstacle course in order to impress his peers/financiers.
Once Paragon awakened from stasis, she broke out of the pod and attacked everyone in the facility including Van Roekel. He then ordered his minions to stop her from escaping the underground facility.
When she returned later that evening, he revealed to her that her daughter did not survive all those years ago. Enraged, she attacked Van Roekel and the two of them battled. Roekel lost and he revealed the actual truth to why he had captured her centuries ago. A race of slavers had taken many of his people prisoners and he had to drop his compassion for others in order to win the war on his home world. He escaped the planet with many other resistance members and he had chosen Earth in order to create an army to help him free his planet from slavery. He then disappears along with his battle suit.
