In earlier years, Xanthom was well known for her swordplay with her dual scimitars and her devotion to the lord of battles and of course the king. She of beautiful features and firm voice was but gullible and trusting; so when a vengeful young red dragon known as Crimson came to exact his reprisal, Xanthom became a pawn in that revenge.
Crimson’s plan was to destroy the Knights from within. He arrived at the conclusion that the beautiful Xanthom should acquire a Talisman of Ultimate Evil; forever changing her morals and alliances.
That summer, Xanthom fell from the grace of Tempus following a bitter betrayal of one of her fellow Knights. Tempus himself cursed her by causing her to grow extra useless, hideous extremities that even should they be severed; they would always regenerate. She became possessed with purpose and began her own campaign to obliterate all of Tempus’ followers, thereby destroying her former god.
She died in her temple’s ossuary, beaten and exhausted under Allisa’s holy blade with a dire curse on her lips: “May the Gods of Fury visit such a reckoning upon Samular and his linage… LIKE NONE EVER KNOWN!”
