Overview

Midas is based on the Greek myth about a king of the same name, who turned everything he touched into gold. He could have also been inspired by Shirley Bassey's song for 007: Goldfinger, which is about a man described to have the Midas Touch because of his love of gold.

Lore

He was likely the leader of GHOST and E.G.O., and supposedly a team of double agents going undercover for E.G.O. and A.L.T.E.R.

Chapter 2: Season 2

Midas could be found as a boss at the Agency. He was heavily guarded by GHOST Henchmen and could be defeated. Like all bosses, he had his own unique drops: his drum gun and the Agency Keycard - which could be used to unlock the vault. Inside the vault laid a fountain of loot

After the Device live event, Midas would leave his own organization to join SHADOW as he changed his appearance after the event. It marked his own defeat by SHADOW. This might have been pre-determined and may have just been an indication that The Agency would become The Authority.

Midas likely handed over the The Agency to Jules to turn into SHADOW's new HQ.

Another snapshot of Midas can be found this season, it is Oro, however at this point in the story we had no information on him.

Chapter 2: Season 3

At the start of Chapter 2: Season 3, Midas was attacked by a Loot Shark in the trailer. He was thought to have been eaten.

Chapter 2: Season 4

Close to the end of Chapter 2: Season 4, the Midas' snapshot who have been attacked by a Loot Shark attempt to take back the eye of the island. He returns as Shadow Midas. He would eventually fail right after Galactus destroys The Ruins and the eye of the island by exposing the Zero Point. Around this time, another Midas's snapshot made his appearance: Midas Rex, it is assumed to be the version of Midas prior to Oro.

Chapter 2: Season 5

Midas' female counterpart, Marigold arrives on the Island. Just like Midas, she is cursed with the Golden Touch. In her quests, she mentions that someone is "spending Midas' gold" and her pickaxe description mentions that her daggers are a treasured gift from Midas. Their relationship is still currently unknown, although is very likely they have a positive relationship.

Chapter 2: Season 6

Jules' NPC description reveals Jules is Midas' daughter and that he has been "an international crime boss".

He is also seen in Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point Issue 1 fighting batman.

Chapter 2: Season 7

The Marigold NPC, seems to be in on a plan, with Midas and Jules, as she is asking for a getaway driver, she also tells them to stick to the plan, stating that something is going to happen soon involving him.
