The rare sight of a Xvex is enough to kill ordinary men from sheer intimidation. Legend would have it that Tiamat bred with Hydrox and bore six not-quite draconian demonesses with much of their mother's astounding intellect and magical abilities. These six immortal beings are the enemy to all dragon-kind and demon-kind alike, cast out from the outer planes and forced to take up residence in the Concordant Opposition, very close to the hub. They are known to travel to the Prime, and have committed acts of devious cruelty there.

These large-eyed serpentine denizens of evil have 10-inch thick hides of shimmering white scales, and equally white, titanium-hard skulls. They attack either physically four times per round with a claw/claw/bite/tail whip routine, breath a white-hot line of fire (100' range) if the target is one individual, or otherwise use spells as an 18th level Wizard might.

As mentioned, their minds are truly unrivaled, and tend to use Psionic Abilities to an exceeding degree. This is their preferred method of confrontation, since it expends the least amount of energy for them. In a match against another psionic, attack modes expend only half the normal amount of points, but defense modes cost the normal amount.
