Taru Vox was a general in the Zypherian Army who was instrumental in defeating the Dark Empire during the Great War of Zypher. He was the husband Mary Vox, the father of Miles Vox and Tom Vox, the brother-in-law of Falcon, and the uncle of Wolf, Pan, and Cougar.

Near the end of the war, during the Battle of Tahu, Vox died at the hand of Kami, one the Dark Empire's most feared agents.

 Behind the scenes

Taru Vox was portrayed by Phil Ruscin in the film Inevitable Fate Episode I: The Rise of Tom Vox. The father of Tom Vox was created by Scott Highland for Inevitable Fate originally named Toru Vox, after the character Tohru from the cartoon Jackie Chan Adventures.

Original Inevitable Fate

In the original film Inevitable Fate, script written by Scott Highland, Vox was the king of the planet Tahu and portrayed by Adam Woodruff, who would go on to portray Miles Vox in Inevitable Fate Episode I: The Rise of Tom Vox and Inevitable Fate Episode II: Revenge of the Dark Empire. He disagreed with his son, Prince Tom Vox, when it came to fighting against Kami's invasion forces. Toru tried to convince Tom that fighting Kami was suicide due to the last time Kami attacked and his army killed over 600,000 Tahu troops but Tom stood to protect the planet.

While the film was never completed, due to budget limitations and the need for more cast and crew than was available at the time, the script was. In the script, Prince Tom Vox went on to fight the warlord Kami in vain resulting in the death of himself, King Toru Vox, and his eldest son Gobon Vox. Tom's youngest son Goban Vox would eventually go on to avenge their deaths and prevent Tahu from falling into slavery.

Taru's wife

Taru's wife Mary was named by Adam Woodruff during the Rasta Interview Type Show when Rasta, portrayed by Christian Highland, asked Miles what the name of his mother was.
