"Life is so hollow."
— Xan

Personality[]

He was a consumate pessimist and always believed himself to be eternally doomed for failure.[1]

Abilities[]

Due to his preferred school of magic, Xan's enchantment spells were more potent. As a result however, he was incapable of casting spells from the school of evocation.[1]

Relationships[]

Xan's cousin Erevain was actually quite fond of him.[2]

Possessions[]

His most treasured possession was his moonblade, a magical sword that was forged in the fabled city of Myth Drannor.[1]

History[]

Sometime during or before the Year of the Banner, 1368 DR, Xan was tasked by the Greycloaks to investigate the iron crisis that befell the region of the Sword Coast. He was eventually caught by the cleric Mulahey and imprisoned within the mines beneath Nashkel.[1]
