|“|| Garnett was my role model. But when I saw him set our own sister on fire, it opened my eyes. I saw the monster he truly was. I thought I knew him, but now I feel like I don't even know myself.|
– Payne the Griffin
Payne is the fourth eldest of his siblings in the Mythos family and serves Garnett as his right hand man, accompanying him as he hunts for Azure. Payne once held high loyalty and respect for Garnett, but a traumatic event changed his views on Garnett forever. This event was when Sapphire attempted to leave like Azure had and to stop her, Garnett set Shamrock on fire as an example of what would happen to anyone who tried to betray him. Following this, Payne was scarred by the event and began to see Garnett for the sociopath he truly was. He then continued to serve Garnett out of fear.
Payne appeared alongside the rest of his siblings when Garnett led them to the Occulus on the surface to complete his prophecy. When Azure experienced a power surge and lost control of the storms she was generating, Payne assisted Umber in canceling out the wind as much as he could in order to allow Umber to get close enough to bring her out of her trance. This tactic was successful and Payne celebrated alongside his remaining siblings when Umber officially took over as Chief and declared that their people return to living on the surface.
Payne will appear in Rise of the Titans as a member of Team Drift.
A future version of Payne is mentioned by Z as leading a small group of survivors through Crisis City along with Ghost and Sepia.
