Paige is a character of TRON: Uprising voiced by Emmanuelle Chriqui. General Tessler's second-in-command, Paige has endured her share of tragedy. Separated from her "family" during a battle, she was rescued by the General. This resulted in a deep loyalty to him, which often blinds her to his darker side. She is Beck's chief antagonist and, eventually, the object of his desire.
Paige was present during the takeover of Argon City, and when the young program Beck decided to go renegade by blowing up a new statue of Clu, she gave pursuit that ended in a fierce duel atop a Light Copter. Beck leaped to safety after the machine's engines were damaged, leaving Paige to land the craft alone and return empty-handed.
Paige later went down to Argon City to tell the programs about the "renegade" and to announce that Tessler was bringing the games to Argon City. She told the programs that they were being volunteered for the games and would be rounded up in a few cycles time. Tessler, however, launched his plan prematurely and began taking programs immediately. Paige was worried for the programs' sake, but Tessler told her that if she hadn't failed to subdue Beck in the first place, he wouldn't have had to do it.
She got her own back after Tessler himself had suffered a defeat at the hands of Beck. "Told you he wasn't that easy to catch." she chided.
When two programs escaped on the way to their second match, Paige went out to track them down and bring them back. She discovered that the escapees were Beck and Cutler, who had defeated a team of Black Guards earlier in the Coliseum. She brought them back, cuffed them together, and put them back in the games against three Black Guards on light cycles. The two programs again defeated their enemies, and later Beck was set free while Cutler was to be derezzed. After Beck returned in the guise of Tron and rescued Cutler, Paige went to recapture them. They had a long fight with that ended only when one of Beck's friends, Zed, led a criminal gang on light cycles straight toward her. Paige was knocked off her feet and Beck and Cutler escaped. When she got back up she lead them away.
Paige was tasked with overseeing a plan to drill energy, but showing her compassionate side she shut off the drill to stop the resulting blackouts from causing casualties in Argon City. Tessler removed her from her post, not caring if a few programs were being derezzed.
Once alone she discovered one of the Black Guard waking up after an altercation with the renegade. Searching through the tunnels, she found Beck informing racers in the Argon race to evacuate because of a bomb he had planted on Tessler's drill. Paige raced back to the drill on her light cycle, and although Beck tried to stop her, she arrived too late to do anything about the bomb. Both of them were then forced to escape from its blast through the tunnels again. Paige's bike wasn't fast enough, so Beck pulled her onto his instead, and she escaped the blast only as a reluctant passenger.
Once Paige returned to Tessler, she suggested blaming the blackouts on the renegade, gaining public trust and alienating him from the programs of Argon. Then she assembled a task force to catch the renegade, one member of which was Zed.
Paige was only shown once to see the weapon Zed had created. When the weapon failed she said Zed was a joke.
Paige went after The Renegade when he stole a data cube, but crashed and was stranded on an island with him. Initially they fought, but when she learned that the island was disintegrating she reluctantly began to co-operate.
After repairing Beck's arm, she began to reflect on her past association with Quorra, and she had once healed the ISO. She remembered how Quorra had deceived her and then Tessler had later informed her of Quorra had murdered her friends, an experience that had galvanised Paige into joining with Tesler.
While helping Beck make a boat to get the off of the island, the ground disintegrates from under her, causing her to fall. Beck went to get the boat ready so he could save her, leaving Paige to believe that he left her there to die. He did return for her, but too late as Tessler and Pavel arrived to the scene first.
Paige told Tessler that she made a mistake trusting the renegade, and should have killed him. She also told him that when she was on the island she remembered how she met him, and how he would never betray her. But he never told her that it was he who killed her friends, for talking to the ISOs.
Personality and traits
Paige was very fierce. She was an excellent fighter and rarely lost her cool. She could be vicious at times but she did have a conscience, as shown when she persuaded Tessler not to derez Beck and Cutler.
She appears to have a flirtatious attitude towards "Tron", half-complimenting him while they fight. However, due to her lack of knowledge of his true identity, she holds Beck in disregard as he is simply a mechanic, even becoming annoyed that she has to deal with him repeatedly.
