Quote: “We’ve met several times. You just didn’t notice.”

Little to none is actually known about the man with the dice called Xerion. In fact, most people think of him as nothing more than a ghost story or urban legend. Very few have ever actually encountered him directly. And even fewer have known what it is they are actually encountering. But one way or another, virtually everyone has been affected by Xerion over the course of their life.

Xerion has roamed the Earth for countless generations. The earliest cave drawings depict a slender looking spirit with several heads playing with rocks carved in small cubes. This crude interpretation is remarkably accurate. Xerion is not a single being but rather four. The four horseman of the apocalypse, to be exact. And the dice he juggles represent the powers of each horseman:  pestilence, famine, war and death are all literally contained in the first four die. The fifth one represents chance.

Despite Xerion’s immense power, he is relatively benign. No one has ever died at his hands. At least not directly. Xerion’s purpose is not to destroy the world. It’s to have man destroy itself and the world in the process. Xerion is a masterful manipulator and shrewd instigator. He’s been involved in the inception of nearly every war or battle worth mentioning. His reach is limitless yet his touch is undetectable. His words linger in your psyche indefinitely yet you’ll barely have any recollection of even conversing with him. At the end of time, when the last man is standing, he will blame his own brother for the world’s demise before he even acknowledges the man with the dice.
