Sunday Surreality - Xaxx The Watcher

Xaxx the Watcher is a a figure in the theological legends of the Lawful religions. Depicted as a seervitor or aspect-filament of Tothet, Xaxx is said to be a holy warrior that can detect evil, is resistant to sorcery, and can cast the extraworldly servants of Chaos out of Algol. The Watcher carries a massive holy flaming sword, a magic telescope which can detect evil at great distances, and is clad is shining silvery full articulated plate armor.

As depicted in scriptures The Watcher never speaks, instead using gestures and it's pupil to communicate. It's archetypal pose is pointing at finger (at evil), with it's pupil contracted and angry looking.

  1. Love this. "Of Dubious Artistic Merit" indeed! I always say if a god/deity/demon can't be drawn by a 4-year-old (or average RPG designer) then it isn't likely to be actually worshipped by anybody.

  3. Nice character. Sort of an Inquisitor from 40K vibe. I would give this guy a retinue.

    I am so tempted to smash Planet Algol with one of the Chaos planets from the Eye of Terror in 40K (maybe a Chaos storm that sweeps over a region) and see what happens.
