Vax'ildan is a character in Seeker, Slayer, Survivor.

Background[edit | edit source]

Vax, along with Vex, was born in the humble village of Byroden due to the union of a human woman named Elaina and an elven man named Syldor Vessar. The twins lived with Elaina for the first ten years of their life before they were sent to live in Syngorn, where their father lived. During this time, Vax had received training in the ways of the blade from his elven instructors.

After several years of cold reception from the Syngornian elves, the twins set off on their own. They returned to Byroden, only to see their childhood home destroyed and their mother gone. Vax honed his skills as a rogue, whereas Vex honed her skills as a ranger. At one point, he joined the Westruun sect of The Clasp.

For quite some time, Vax and Vex only truly relied on each other, but eventually the twins found their way to Stilben, where they met individuals that would later join them and become the foundation for the adventuring party Vox Machina.

Vax was a close-ranged combat fighter and often used a deadly combination of sneak attacks, magical weaponry, items, agility, and various abilities when in combat. He was naturally the sneakiest member of Vox Machina and often scouted ahead for the group when in dangerous situations.

Vax occasionally mentioned his instructors in Syngorn, one of whom is named Master Tharindriel.[spelling?]

Vax was the first one out of the group to kill an illithid in "Attack on the Duergar Warcamp" (1x04).

Vax'ildan was bisexual. He showed interest in both men and women, specifically Shaun Gilmore, a human sorcerer, and Keyleth, a half-elven druid and fellow member of Vox Machina.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

He is a reference to Vax'ildan, the Half Elf Rogue Paladin of Vox Machina from the D&D web series Critical Role.

There is a free DLC including the voice pack voiced by Liam O'Brian and photo of the character from the show.
