Maximilien is an Omnic member of Talon as well as one of its Council leaders. Six years ago, Maximilien was the target of an Overwatch mission. The organization had their struggles of finding Doomfist, Overwatch agent Sojourn recommended that they instead capture Doomfist by targeting Maximilien (Doomfist's accountant), could help find his whereabouts. She sends a strike team consisting of Tracer, Mercy, Winston and Genji were assigned of bringing max in to custody. Maximilien was believed by Overwatch to be "soft" and more likely to give information to Overwatch than other members of Talon. He escaped initial capture and fled through the Don Rumbotico distillery to the Havana Sea Fort, but he was captured before he could board a helicopter out of the city. Immediately, he offered to make a deal with the strike team and ultimately agreed to arrange "an introduction" with Doomfist. He told Overwatch that Doomfist would be in Singapore in three weeks, leading to Doomfist's arrest, and in exchange requested that Overwatch not tell Doomfist nor Talon of his betrayal. Maximilien was first seen in a casino in Monaco. Akande Ogundimu wanted to meet him to "get the lay of the land". During their meeting, the two discussed the impact Akande's imprisonment had on Talon and its members, stating that some members were pleased to see him go to prison, of which he was not. Their conversation was interrupted by a few of said members entering the casino and approaching them, which made Akande and Lacroix get up and fight them. Maximilien was later seen in a meeting in Venice, with other members of Talon's council of leaders. The meeting was about deciding the next course of action to take, with Akande stating "we have a war to start".
