The Paradox is one of the four factions of the Nexus Force. Led by Vanda Darkflame, they specialize in the usage of the power of the Maelstrom to turn the evil, sinister power of the Maelstrom against itself. Paradox is the only faction in LEGO Universe whose leader was not one of the original Crux Explorers. Their color is red, and the faction emblem is the Maelstrom with an eye in the center/centre, symbolizing that the Maelstrom sees everything (this fact is confimred via The Great Minifig Mission). The Paradox has set facilities in many of the worlds of LEGO Universe to study the Maelstrom.
"The line at which the other Factions stop is where The Paradox plunge forward with abandon. Possessed of an insider's knowledge of the darker forces of the Universe, The Paradox are represented by Vanda Darkflame - an unpredictable, shadowy ninja girl, and former protégé of Baron Typhonus ."
