Xerophon is a rogue and an Evergreen Champion. They are obtained by completing the "A Lesson in Classes" variant in the Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden campaign.

Xerophon is a Support Champion who uses their excellent imitation skills to provide valuable information to the rest of the formation. This gives their fellow Champions bonuses to all their attacks, helping keep the party moving through any obstacles in the way!

Backstory[]

Imagine going to sleep as a prisoner in a Netherese floating city, and waking up centuries later on an icy glacier. This Champion is doing their best to turn a rough start into a new beginning. Xerophon joins with the Champions in an attempt to avoid the icy tomb of Ythryn, but is very interested in seeing where this new lease on life takes them. As a doppelganger they've had the opportunity to play many roles in their life, and now looks like an excellent chance to try out being a hero!
