Wayne was born somewhere in middle America, and he became a black belt in mixed martial arts. At some point of his life he was recruited by Arthur to join his technological brotherhood called The Circle.

During an auction run by A.I.M., the Circle bought part of the replicated Extremis technology, creating new and better exoskeletons for their own purposes. After they noticed Iron Man was in the search of the Extremis which A.I.M. stole, Arthur proposed Stark a wager, if Stark defeated the Circle's Extremis-enhanced pilots, he would be free to retrieve the Extremis.

Gawain was the first pilot Iron Man fought, but was defeated by Stark because of his overconfidence in his Knight-Suit.[1]

When the powerful material Phlogistone was found in the Moon, the Circle was sent to Tranquility Gulch, the human colony from which the Phlogistone was studied, as representatives of Symkaria.[2] They later helped Iron Man attack the embassy of the country of their common enemy, Doctor Doom, in an attempt to prevent any Phlogistone from reaching Doom's hands.[3] He was killed by the Doombots during the battle.[4]
