Family - Younger Brother
Xavier absolutely loves his little brother. He dotes on him still, worries about him, and dumbly falls for any tricks Henri may pull on him. He's fiercely protective of him, much to Henri's displeasure. It's not that Xavier doesn't trust his brother, it's just instinct that drives him to protecting him. He's incredibly excited for his brother's engagement, and really it's about time his baby brother was getting married! Right now he just worries about him all by himself with just Yaavie and Ellias. But he does trust Henri to watch over them and keep them safe while everyone is all split up.
Like A Brother -
Edmund is as good as family to Xavier. Edmund is like a second brother to him. Even though Edmund was born to serve both Xavier and Henri as a servant, neither of them can bring themselves to treat the man they grew up with and love any differently. And now soon enough, Edmund really will be family as he and Henri are getting married. Xavier couldn't be any happier for them, and he knows Edmund will take extremely loving care of Henri. But that doesn't mean he's not going to give him a hard time about it anyway from time to time.
Family - Father
Xavier...despises this man. He absolutely hates his father. When he was younger, he used to be afraid of Florence. But then Xavier got bigger, got stronger, smarter even. He started talking back and rebelling against Florence. He hated it when the man lost all hope with Henri after he lost his arm, how badly and cruelly he treated Edmund, and how intent he was on choking Xavier on an already short leash. This man is nothing to Xavier, and every second spent thinking about him angers Xavier. But Xavier has learned from Florence. He has learned to be a better man, something he always will be compared to his father.
Family - Mother
Xavier's mother...is a coward. Xavier has watched time and time again as Florence would berate and abuse her, and she'd just take it. Whenever Xavier or one of his brothers were being punished, she would do nothing to stop it, or just hide away to avoid her husband's wrath. It isn't a woman's place to speak up against her husband, but Xavier sometimes wishes she at least did something. He still loves her though, and thinks about her from time to time but...
Servant - Like A Father
If Florence is no father to Xavier, then Rodrique is in any case. While Florence was a tyrant, it was Rodrique who was the voice of reason. He was the one who really showed Xavier, Edmund, and Henri how to be real men. How to hold their heads high and be strong. Rodrique...died from wounds he received on a mission with Xavier, taking on the attack that was meant to hurt Xavier instead. Xavier got them out of there, and almost made it back home when Rodrique passed. Xavier still beats himself up over it to this day, wishing he had just been a little faster, a little stronger, and the man he considered his father would have lived.
Servant - Like A Mother
Probably a much better mother than Xavier's own mother was. Xavier loves Martha, and would listen to her over Sandra any day. He equally loves her, respects her, and fears her, as all men should with their mothers. Martha was the one to dote on them, care for them when they were ill, and just be everything Sandra was too afraid to do. If Xavier could, he would return to his old home just to see her again, and just her if that was possible.
Family - Daughter
Xavier doesn't quite know yet that he's an actual father to anyone, much less to this adorable little girl. Isabella is the daughter of his ex-fiance, who he may or may not have slept with to get information from her...Xavier left soon after that, unknown of the results of that night's coupling with his then fiancé...
Family - Son
Two for two it seems! Xavier never never ever thought that a one-night stand with a girl in the desert would result in a second child. He's still unaware that he has a son, and it won't be long until he finds out! When he does learn about Usman and the boy's situation, Xavier would stop at nothing to come in and save him. If he know that Usman could be hurt because of his actions...Well he'd never forgive himself for letting another child down.
Dark Musician // Raven Wolf
Close Friend - Girlfriend
Ah the birdie! Well what can Xavier say, he absolutely loves this girl. She's young, she's pretty, she can be shy, but she can be fierce when she wants to be. Xavier could care less about her true occupation as a Hunter for Go. He's already grown way too seriously attached to her, and just wants nothing more than to just be able to love her and protect her. For all of Raven's talk of leaving to keep them safe and the likes, Xavier could never let her go. Out of all the girls in the world that Xavier has slept with or simply courted for a brief amount of time, it's Raven who has stuck out the most, and Raven the one he wants the most.
Close Friend - Like A Daughter
Xavier has an interesting relationship with Maeryn. Xavier adored children right off the bat, but this girl? She's a little too big for her britches, and she can a big brat a lot of the time. But Xavier loves her to pieces. Here's a girl who has had to grow up a lot sooner than expected. And while she can be a big pain the ass, Xavier does understand and respect her for what she's tried to do. Xavier has since taken her under his wing as an apprentice. And after attempts on her life, Xavier has become very, very protective of Maeryn. He even sees her as his own daughter, something Maeryn was...very upset with and in his defense, Xavier didn't mean to let that slip out, but he meant every word of it. If he could just really adopt her and give her and her siblings a real family...That would be marvelous.
Close Friend - Like A Son
Ellias is Maeryn's little brother. Xavier finds Ellias to be an extremely adorable and bouncy little boy. For all that's happened to him, Ellias sure does bounce back fast from it, and Xavier finds that an admirable quality in a person. That, and he probably has become a big role-model for the boy, and even a father like figure to him. Not a problem with Xavier. If he could have anyone as a son (including his own actual son), he would happily call Ellias his own. Though still young, Xavier hopes he would at least be more open to accepting Xavier as a father than his older sister.
Close Friend - Like A Daughter
The eldest of the Laryathar siblings. While Xavier doesn't have the exact same bond with Yaavie as he does her younger siblings, he still loves her regardless. She has a good, sensible head on her shoulders, and doesn't always approve of the trouble they get themselves into. But someone has to be the voice of reason around here! He's proud of her for taking control of her life and opening up an apothecary to support herself with. And while he does feel a little bad about leaving her alone with just Ellias and Henri, he knows she's strong enough to keep things in order over there until the others return. And...well she's probably too old to consider trying to adopt but maybe he'd be surprised if he asked her.
A funny but inventive little gnome Xavier met one day. Xavier and Bekrory both have a dream of flying and a fascination with flight on its own. They get along incredibly well, mostly because it takes a madman to know a madman. Xavier has saved Bekrory from thugs, and has helped him with errands around town, and he considers Bekrory a remarkable friend he would not hesitate to help.
Xavier has only met J'Rek a few times, mostly business related. But he does like the gyik and thinks him to be a nice fellow and wouldn't mind taking on anymore jobs from him.
Xavier...likes, hates, and fears Tzila all at once. She's snarky, which he can appreciate. He hates her because she's a little devil. And fears her because...he's seen what she can really do. Just as long as she doesn't hurt anyone he cares about, she's okay...for now.
Trust but doesn't trust but does anyway
Xavier really, really, really wants to dislike, no, hate Erix, but at the same time, he sorta can't. He knows now why Raven hates the man, and Xavier wants to hate him for hurting Raven like that. However, Erix is the one keeping other Hunters at bay from finding him, and Xavier is grateful for that. It's...it's just complicated okay?
The Other Madman
This guy...is crazy. Which normally wouldn't mean anything to a guy like Xavier who is equally insane, but this guy is the annoying kind if crazy. Really more nosy than anything, and here Xavier is trying to keep a low profile but nope, NOT WITH THIS GUY. Especially since the man is like some stalker who seems to know just about everything about him and his companions, something Xavier worries about greatly.
Azrael...has one hell of a sword arm on him. And...admittedly, he is pretty good in a fight, albeit frustrating to spar with. He gives Xavier a run for his money, something that most people can't quite accomplish for someone like Xavier. Xavier's companions were all for letting the elf into their secret club of sorts, and while he was outvoted for not giving an invitation to him, he still wouldn't mind someone like Azrael on his side...
The Lizard Man
Xavier has only met Zaleiset once before, and he can already say he likes him. Not just because he's one odd looking gyik, but he seems like an interesting enough man, and the wonders and powers of a gyik intrigue him. Xavier would not mind seeing Zaleiset again sometime.
One of the first people Xavier met when he first came to Mapleshore. She's pretty yes, and Xavier loved how easy it was to dazzle her (but who is he kidding, he's amazing). He saw her around the clinic during the plague that was threatening to take his friends and family, but since the end of the plague, he hasn't seen her since. Mostly because he's been in Goldbridge so he has no idea where she could be right now.
Despite the fact that now Xavier is marked for death, he does not regret killing Kalor. Kalor was hurting Raven, he possibly would have killed her if Xavier had not come in to save her. It was an incredible fight...And Xavier still can't believe he actually won. But he sticks to his beliefs and morals of protecting the ones he loves at any cost. Kalor can rot in hell for all Xavier cares. And if he could kill him again, he would.
Go, God of Death
The Big Boss
Well, looks like a meeting between Xavier and this...man is bound to happen eventually. Xavier despises Go, for what he did to Raven, and for all that he stands for. Killing a god is impossible, beating one in a fight just as unlikely. But when the days come, Xavier will not cower. No, when the day comes, he will fight Go like no man has done before. Even if he can't kill him, nothing will stand in his way to show this "god" what a mere mortal can really do.
(People from the past)
Xavier never loved her. It was an arranged marriage that smelled fishy all over. So...terrible Xavier spent one night, just one night in bed with this girl in order to question her on what their parents were planning. And once he found out, Xavier planned his great rebellion. He didn't...quite care that he had basically used a girl for sex and information, and tries not to think about it too hard. That, and he's still unaware he left her with his child.
Well uh, it is safe to say that Xavier has a thing for desert girls. Inas was young, she was pretty, and it was just the one night Xavier and his brothers were with her tribe. Didn't matter to him if she was the chief's sister or not, it's not like they were ever going to see each other again. Little did Xavier know, that one night was all it took to impregnate her. He doesn't even know she had his son, nor that she died in childbirth. When he learns of this though...Oh how terrible he'll feel...
Lamis was very kind and to polite, and although Xavier didn't take as keen an interest to her as he did her sister, he still likes her and thinks her to be a nice woman. She's the one currently raising his son for him and her sister, and when the time comes to take Usman back to Mapleshore, Xavier will promise with all his might that the boy will grow up happy, healthy, and loved in his new home.
Inas' brother and tribe chief
Xavier shall soon learn why sleeping with the chief's sister is a bad idea. Because now his son's life is threatened by this man, and Xavier will soon have ride out to meet Quadir's terms if he wants to save Usman's life.
Tobias is Xavier's beloved pet hawk. Xavier has raised this bird since he was a small chick, and now they work as a glorious tag-team. Tobias is the eye in the sky, and a ferocious fighter when he needs to be. He's always wary of his master's tendency to try and acquire other "pets", but they usually don't last long, or Xavier doesn't have the funds to obtain them.
A birthday present that Edmund and Henri worked hard to obtain, Nuri was born in the spring of year III. She has grown a considerable since she was a tiny chick. She's now around the size of an eagle, and is able to regulate her extreme body temperature. From a beautiful hue of blues and purples, to a flurry of oranges and reds, Nuri is truly a sight to behold. And Xavier absolutely adores her. She's not he dragon he could ever hope for, but he couldn't ask for anything better than her.
This is one loyal horse and Xavier is so grateful for him. For all the nonsense that they go through, Hercule is always up for a great adventure as far as Xavier can tell. He misses those long rides through the countryside with the horse, and hopes Edmund brings him back home safe and sound.
L'Ordre de la Confrérie des Lames
(The Order of the Brotherhood of Blades)
Feliz Katz the Stalker
Lieutenant // Little Brother Figure // 2nd Apprentice
Xavier originally met Felix atop the rooftops of Goldbridge as he, Raven, and Maeryn were to capture a replacement soul to give to Go. Xavier had to stay in Goldbridge, and the Stalker began popping up more and more the longer he stayed. Felix is just simply a bored rich kid who finds the life of thievery and sneaking about to be rather exciting than working the bank of Goldbridge. Xavier and Felix have spent an incredible amount of time together, and together they have been able to kickstart the Order up. And they've become close, and Felix is like a little brother to Xavier. Xavier has also been training Felix in the art of the blade, and can't wait to be able to give Felix a proper blade much like Xavier's.
Olga Funar the Pirate
Ally and Friend
Olga is an interesting one, a former pirate that used to terrorize the seas until she was nearly hanged in Port Nansui after her crew mutinied against her. That doesn't stop her from telling stories of her grand adventures and exploits, and Xavier is a sucker for a good story. She's Felix's girlfriend, and Xavier's just simply waiting for the day the house is filled with the pitter patter of little pirate kittens running about.
Milivoj the Protector
Doorman, Ally, and Friend
It is actually the large home of the Protector that L'Ordre is residing in as their headquarters. Though he rarely moves from his post or removes his mask, Xavier still makes it a point to keep the elf updated on everything going on, and tries to constantly coax out a conversation from him. He is grateful that Milivoj would allow his home to be used like so, but Milivoj has admitted to him that while it has been a relatively short time since his family was decimated (for an elf anyway), he is happy to have his home have people in it, and hearing the daily go abouts of the members is refreshing.
Kaja Linna the Thorn
Ally and Friend
Though not always the nicest of company, Kaja is a hardworking woman for raising several children all by herself since her husband passed away. Though her home is cramped, it does not stop L'Ordre from stopping by for some dinner, or just to simply help her around the house. Xavier loves her children, and admires her for her strength, and is happy to help her whenever he can.
Héctor Rios the Holy
Ally and Friend
While Héctor is very wary of Xavier due to the dark magic marked on him, Héctor is a wise and valuable ally to have. His years of experience give good advice to his younger companions, and Xavier likes to have him around in case any Hunters get too close. Xavier has also slowly...but surely worming the idea of having the priest marry Edmund and Henri into his mind, hoping the older man is more open to the idea of marrying two gays together. He can't tell if he's getting through to Héctor or not, but hopes something works out in the end.
