Background[edit | edit source]
Xephon came to power following the long power-gap after the order disbanded. Using the unrest created by the lack of any solid guard force, Xephon pulled several strings to have war-hero Kalliades Aurios brought into power, commanding a government controlled guard, which was considerably more oppressive than any other previously seen. After several months in control over the city's law enforcement, the state suffered serious civil unrest and interior problems, losing their head of secret police, Xephon resigned, and Kalliades held onto power, running a more understanding guard without Xephon pulling the strings. Shortly after, the guard collapsed once more.
Several months later, after the disband of the stormwind night watch, a much appraised militia guarding system. The stage was set for another decent into government control over the guard, and with this, Xephon's second ascent to power. Currently, Xephon attends administration duties over the guard with his assistant Sarahia.
Current Status[edit | edit source]
Following many months of secret servitude to the dark embrace, Xephon watched as the cult became nothing, and was consigned to become a memory. Xephon now acts as current adviser to Kalliades Aurios in matters of state diplomacy and politics, in hopes of something useful to rear it's head.
Personal notes[edit | edit source]
Xephon is highly intelligent, skilled advisor. His quick thinking and future-proof ploys are largely the reason the State of Stormwind has grown so rapidly. Very few people have bested Xephon in a meeting of minds, and has skilfully erased all records of his existence prior to the rise of the State - a testament to his own cunning. Xephon may be known for his intelligence, but certainly not for his kindness. His methods of interrogation are highly questionable. Beneath his calm, collected exterior, he hides a sadistic, twisted pleasure in the suffering of others. Whilst his calm nature can deceive the best judges of character, Xephon is quick to anger when things turn sour. Once unsettled, he is the first to point fingers, and delights in taking out his aggression on those around him. When Xephon gets angry, heads inevitably will roll. Like many people who have a knack for landing themselves in power, he believes himself to be far above the populace, with delusions of omniscience and omnipotence. There are rumours he has some sort of hidden power to back this claim, although such strengths have yet to come to light. Quite the extrovert, Xephon is not frightened of executing his plans with flair. Indeed, on several occasions Xephon has opted for a more theatrical strategy with a lower chance of success over a more grounded, subtle approach. It has been speculated that this may prove to be his downfall.
