|“||Tonight I will go to the stars, Ryan. I will look for the gods in all things and see what they have to tell me.
Why, Xavier? What is the purpose of this? We need you here, my friend. The world is entering into a dark time. The future tells of a troubling dark.
The dark has been here for eons, Germaine. It is only just now beginning to show its true colors, to display the consequences. The troubles of this world have grown dull, a constant ache to the senses. There is a higher purpose for me in those dark cosmic expanses of space, where the sentiences of gods and demons rest. They will herald me to their true forms.
So you will simply abandon us?
I shall return, my comrade in arms, my dear companion. Until then you must lead the Guardians as I have done. You must simply endure the passing years- if eons pass in my journey, you must ensure these walls are well guarded. Know that I shall be with you and your descendants for thousands of years, watching, if it is not my destiny to return. Thank you, friend-Ryan. Endure these coming tides. Farewell.''
|~ Xavier's final words to Ryan St. Germaine|
|“||Those who choose to follow my will must too learn of my thoughts and prayers for this world. Magic is, as is well documented, a series of threads known as leylines crossing and connecting to each other to form a weave over reality. This weave is what we, as mages, as warlocks, as clerics, and as the supernatural beings of this world, manipulate- we bend the weave of reality to our will.
There are those that would seek to change this Weave. To manipulate, to corrupt it, to their will alone. Be they good or evil, this would be a catastrophic downfall of magic and the end of equality as it stands today. Thus we must take the median path of neutrality to ensure this does not happen. Stand by me, my comrades- declare to the world your intent and ride forth with singing hearts!''
|~ Xavier Nightchild|
Xavier Nightchild is a lesser god of magic and balance within the Dungeons and Dragons multiverse, and is a being of considerable power because of it. While many elven gods gravitate towards the arts of magic, few have ever so carefully attuned themselves to magic as a force itself to understand it in such an in-depth manner.
Xavier is renowned for his overall goals of standing in total neutrality- neither good nor evil reigns supreme in Xavier's heart, as he prefers only to find some perfect equilibrium in the multiverse, some point where everything will be eternal and balance. To this end he looks towards his ancient fellows, comrades in arms, and indeed towards adventurers everywhere throughout the multiverse, throughout time itself, in the interests of finding that keystone chess piece that will create his perfect world.
In times long past, Xavier was the leader of the Guardians, a band of adventurers similarly bent on neutrality- mainly in the form of fighting forces of any alignment that meant harm towards generally normal entities. He has long since adapted his vision for a balanced world, and seeks to spread this vision to his old allies and their new compatriots, particularly in regards to Vaerun, the Shade Lord of Serth LaKresh.
Xavier's holy symbol is a platinum eye with an iris formed from a great, blazing silver star.

Note: Xavier, after ascending to godhood, became a non-corporeal consciousness taking up an infinitesimally small fragment of the cosmic void of space- it is from that bastion he controls avatars and his true form. It was Xavier's belief that all gods took this form- while he was not correct, this serves as a core teaching of his followers, that Xavier watches them from the stars with eyes like glittering suns and a face formed from two thousand constellations. He is not restricted to this form, nor is it his true form- simply that which he chooses to take at all times.
