Xan Kriegor is a character in the Unreal series.
In 2283 Xan led the LBX-7683 Robot Uprising in which several robots turned against the humans on the asteroid, prompting Liandri to send in a tactical squad to quell the rebellion. Xan was captured and resisted several memory wipes but was eventually reprogrammed.
Liandri later entered Xan into the underground Tournaments, which later grew into the legally-sanctioned Liandri Grand Tournament. Xan became the the leader of The Corrupt, a Liandri-sponsored team. Xan won at least two Tournaments during this time. Many people believed at this time that Xan was in fact Jerl Liandri, the founder of the Liandri Corporation, wearing power armor, presumably due to the lack of general knowledge of the LBX-7683 incident by the general public.
Xan was finally beaten in 2293 by Malcolm (Unreal Tournament). Liandri recalled Xan and upgraded him to Xan Mark II, and attempted to gain back the champion spot from Malcolm. This bid proved unsuccessful, and Liandri recalled him again for a complete rebuilding, during which he didn't participate for a number of years. This includes 2302, the year of Unreal Tournament 2003.
In 2303 (Unreal Tournament 2004) Liandri finally re-entered Xan after upgrading him to Xan Mark 3. Although he still failed to become champion, he may become a finalist, depending on how the player plays the game.
- Multiple years before 2291, in illegitimate tournaments (2283, 2284, 2285, 2286, 2287, 2288, 2289, 2290).
Unreal Tournament Edit
In UT, his exact origins are unknown, as his character bio says, and some speculate he is either a robot or the CEO of Liandri in a suit. Either way, he is merciless, and has his own armor picture and taunts, only shared with Xan II.
Xan Mark II Edit
|"After his defeat in the Tournament, Xan has been rebuilt from the ground up. He's stronger, faster, and a hell of a lot meaner looking."|
Xan II, also in UT, is only accessible by installing Bonus Pack 4, and has very large amounts of visible circuitry.
Unreal Tournament 2004 Edit
|"Former Tournament champion Xan Kriegor is an almost mythical figure. His return from several years of isolation has been greeted with great trepidation by other Tournament competitors."|
UT2004, Xan's last appearance, had Xan as one of the 3 unlockable characters, and shared the same body style as Axon.
Xan Kriegor is the team leader for the Godlike tier team The Corrupt, and one of the possible final bosses depending on how his team fares in the Single-player game, the other possible bosses being Malcolm and ClanLord.
Physical appearance Edit
- Strangely enough, Xan is regarded as entirely robotic in UT2004 onwards but fragging Xan in the first UT generates partially bloodied gibs.
- A fan speculation was that the Xan-MKIII is an entirely different character. The robot that caused the robot revolution. And that Xan Kriegor is still awaiting his comeback, or has retired from fighting. This speculation is probably created by fans that were dissapointed that the mysterious nature of Xan was revealed in UT2004 in a rather dull way. With no explenation as to why he "bleed" blood in UT99, but was entirely robotic in UT2004.
