The Hero: Xypher

  Xypher redefines the term evil so much so that M'Adoc was forced to put him down. As a Phobotory Skotos, there's nothing he likes more than to scare anyone he comes into contact with. There is no kindness. Brutality is all he's ever known and it's all he understands.

The Story Behind The Story

Simone originally appeared in Night Pleasures in the morgue scene with Amanda and Kyrian, but was taken out when Sherri's original editor decided that the readers didn't need to meet her yet.

Sherri had originally wanted to write Solin's book after Devil May Cry, but Xypher, much like Zarek, wouldn't be denied. She knew she'd have to write his book. Not to mention, Jaden was nagging at her, too. Solin returns in The Guardian (with a major surprise).
