Xan was an elven enchanter and member of the Greycloaks of Evereska during the mid–14th century DR.[1][note 1]

"Life is so hollow."
— Xan

Personality[edit | edit source]

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

Abilities[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

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

Possessions[edit | edit source]

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

History[edit | edit source]

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]
