Xehaal(zzz-all) is a 27 year old, wealthy bachelor. He is 5,7 , has a thin wispy frame and an emaciated face from years of Opium use. He usually wears a creepy smile and an amused expression He can generally be found wearing an expensive looking black suit, a crimson dress shirt and a black time with purple flames. He has piercing hazel eyes that distribute a haunting gaze, as if he is trying to kill you with his eyes. He has raven black hair that is usually pulled back into a shoulder length ponytail. He carries a tanto and two M9 Berettas(Semi auto pistols). Each of the weapons are jewel encrusted and plated with gold and/or silver. Strangely enough he often speaks of faith and belief in a greater power. He currently works in the private sector as an arms dealer. He is also known for talking to his what is thought to be his lost love. No one is quite sure if he is talking to a familiar or if it is just a long term Opium hallucination. He is extremely manipulative but helpful as long as you are working within his constraints. Addicted to opium, sex, and rock(the music).
