Story: Liam grew up with his father and mother in the desert near the California border. His mother was a waitress and his father made a living on a number of illegal things, mostly selling meth. On the side, mostly as a hobby, he arranged dog fights. At the age of four, his mother vanished and taking care of the dogs became Liam's job. One day the animal services took away the dogs, and Liam ended up fighting for his father instead. It was during these fights Liam learned how to spot the weakness of any opponent [StormWatch PHD #3].

The fights were a success and continued along with the dog fights, until the day when Liam's opponent didn't show and his father got the idea to let Liam fight with his one of his dogs. Instead of the dog attacking Liam, it showed affection, and was shot by Liam's father. His father also tried to shoot Liam, but Liam got away and let the dogs loose. The dogs killed Liam's father and the men that were with him, and Liam started living alone with the dogs. He kept fighting for money until one day when he was arrested and given a choice between jail and the army. Liam chose the army and stayed there [StormWatch PHD #3].

Somewhere along the way, Liam changed from the US army to StormForce in the StormWatch program. Here he got the callsign Paris after the warrior in the Iliad who discovered Achilles weakness. He lost his unit in a fight with Deathtrap but instead of being assigned to a new unit, he was contacted by Jackson King who offered him a job in his StormWatch PHD which he took [StormWatch PHD #1].

Skills & abilities: Liam Mendoza is a highly skilled street fighter with an instinctive sense of the opponent's weaknesses.
