Axel is a carefree and relaxed taxi driver with an entertaining personality. However, he is a bit crazy with a hot and quick temper. He became a cabbie after going on a crazy taxi ride when he was ten years old, and considers it the coolest profession of all.
He enjoys entertaining his customers while getting big tips in the process, and is a huge fan of cash and money. After work hours, Axel enjoys board sports, plays bass and vocals in a punk band and tries picking up women.
Due to his explosive and irrational nature, bands usually kick him out and girls dump him.
