Xander is a character of the morte series, he was adopted by Judge Lich as a infant, and because of this he got in the royal death council at the age of 9 years old, while the rest of the council were like in their 25 - 56. also being adopted by Lich meant he never had a childhood, he was always given hard and often harsh treatment and studies.
When Xander was 10 years old, he witnessed the murder of Lenore morte the 1st. since he was known for being a nice guy type, he was threaten by the other council members ( same ones that killed lenore) that they would kill him just like they killed her. He swore he would never speak but since they did not trust him he was cast out by lich into the kingdom’s church. there he would be house arrested his whole life and forced to be the kingdom’s “father”, regardless wither he was religious or not.
Feeling betrayal by the one man he only had to be a father figure, he grew bitter. He would draw out Lich a monster as a lonely boy in the empty halls of the church ( there were no nuns, priests, ushers )
Xander as an adult came off as the loving father to the people, he showed deep empathy and compassion to the kingdom’s people regardless of his rather serious tone. he was the true icon of an all good man, but deep down Xander was suffering from extreme cabin fever ( he is never to leave the church unless there is a council meeting, to which hes escorted there and escorted back ) and was insane from it.
he also suffered because he was not religious at all, and had desires to be with someone as a level of marriage… but he couldn’t do it due to being house arrested and hes not supposed to since he is ” a man of the church “
his job entitles him to brain wash the masses in thinking the council are good. but he knows the truth, they are horribly evil and are more in power than the royal family the kingdom loves. hes not supposed to speak about it though.
he wants to see the council fall and burn, even if that means he goes down with them. He often dreams of just running away, but he feels like he would abandon the people who he knows deserve better and knows hes one of their last icons of hope. he doesn’t dare to escape because he cares for the kingdom and it’s people so much. He would love to be with someone relationship wise but because hes the only cyclops of the kingdom, he often thinks no one would want to be with a one eye’d creature.
poor man :’c
- he loves fish and crab apple jam / pies
- hes very Gymnophobic, he does not like having any part of his body exposed, and often can come off rather blunt and hateful when someone asks him why he doesn’t take off his coat or shoes when people are around.
- he is nurtured around by mother lucy, she makes him clothes and food alot of the time. this old lady tries to make him feel a little less gloomy. though shes been known to swat him down with a broom if hes being a snake up on the windows of the church
- he can turn into a snake which is rather ironic since snakes are considered evil.
- he often feels awkward because the nuns of the church follow him like baby ducks and he was informed by mother lucy once that some of them find him oddly attractive even with just one eye
- yes the eyes on his clothes move
- he can conjure familiars, which take all different forms but more or less look like shadows that sport the same eye as him
