Newcastle is not who he seems to be. Jackson Williams is Bangalore’s big brother. and like the rest of his family, Jackson previously took part in the frontier war. After Bangalore was injured in combat and their other brother died in battle, Jackson took Bangalore far away so the war would no longer hurt them. Bangalore wanted to return home and fight upon awakening, so they decided to return home together.
When returning, there was an explosion in the ship, and Jackson seemed to be lost in space while Bangalore survived. However, Jackson did survive this ordeal and began his own family in Harris Valley, a charming town where he could enjoy a simple life with his new name, Lamond Craig. The knight of Harris valley, Newcastle, tried to join the Apex Games so he could make enough money to repay his debts. After the thugs he owed killed the real Newcastle, Jackson took Newcastle’s identity so that he could play in the Apex games, win, and buy the valley from the thugs himself to protect his new family.
Newcastle, aka Lamond Craig, aka Jackson Williams, is voiced by the Apex Legends Voice Actor Gabe Kunda. He has also voiced Owethu ‘Jackal’ Mabuza in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Gueldre in Black Clover, Rock lock/ Locklock in My Hero Academia, and many other roles in animation and videogames.
