Xerx Mephistopheles is a sophisticated mad scientist who invented the Shroud and created various high-tech weapons.


Xerx has an unusual appearance, resembling a more human-looking version of Frankenstein's monster, though there is a picture of him in Zerenski's mansion and Kagan realm looking human. Though it is unknown why Xerx looks the way he does in game, it can be surmised that this is due to him being a vampire. As with the abilities, and appearance's of his siblings being so vastly different from one another, this could be his appearance now due to that variable. However it may be that Xerx may lack the true unnatural amounts of healing possessed by his kin, thus requiring him to use other means of self repair. This, coupled with his obvious lack of combat technique, is what most likely forces him to fight Rayne using his Bio Armor.


Xerx seems to be the only offspring of Kagan which is actually loyal to him. He acts like a child whenever Kagan is around, a child happy to show his father his accomplishments, though Kagan doesn't return the feelings. Xerx does not hesitate when it comes to eradicating his father's enemies, not even when it comes to his own siblings. This is proved when he kills his sister Ferril with the Sun gun.


He is one of Kagan's vampire children. He's the one who put Kagan back together after the detonation in 1939 in the Blood Library in France, after which Kagan was thought to be dead.


BloodRayne 2Edit

He is first seen in the game when Ephemera comes to tell him that Zerenski is dead. Xerx doesn't care and shows her the ManCow, a child of Slezz, that they can use for food. He creates The Shroud and shows it to Ferril. The Shroud can allow them to walk at day. He creates the Sun Gun and, happy, shows it to Kagan. Then, Xerx uses it to destroy helicopters and Rayne jumps and comes face-to-face with Xerx. They go to the roof and Rayne finds Ferril alive, but Xerx kills her using the Sun Gun from the bio-armor that he uses. Before Xerx dies ask Rayne why she is against the inevitable. She applies that she is wired that way and she likes the world more without him.

Powers and abilitiesEdit

He fights Rayne in a giant bio-mech suit with weaknesses that are not immediately noticeable and attacks with the deadly Sun Gun. He also seems to walk with a limp.
