Xavier and his brothers, Xaviero and Xayvion, were triplets. They were all mages, and all looked alike, but he was an ancient wizard of great renown while their existence was kept secret. He taught spells to Carpathians for many years without his evil deeds being discovered. He and his brothers practiced dark magick in a hidden cave where he performed cruel experiments on all races and kept several descendants imprisoned. Two small pieces of him, shadow splinters, remained behind after his death and it is thought that Sergey and Vadim Malinov possess them.
