Xander is probably the most troubled character. He has had a really tough past. He's been through hell and back and constantly has the thought of ending his life. His father used to beat him and his mother constantly, until his father left. Not even six months after he left, Xander's mom passed away. He has managed to be on his own for five years now.
Could you imagine being on your own at the age of twelve? Somehow Xander has managed to do so, while staying in school. How did he do it, you may ask? I guess you'll have to keep readin to find out.
Xander is about 5' 10", has blue eyes, and shoulder-length dirty blonde hair.
