Vex'ahlia is a character in Seeker, Slayer, Survivor.

Background[edit | edit source]

Vex, along with her brother Vax, 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.

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. Upon learning that a dragon was responsible for the destruction, Vex'ahlia spent the next few years of her life studying about dragons in the chance that should she find the wyrm that killed Elaina, she would be able to exact revenge on them alongside her brother. Vax honed his skills as a rogue, whereas Vex honed her skills as a ranger.

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.

Vex'ahlia is one of the ranged fighters of the party, excelling in using the longbow. However, her bear companion Trinket engages in close-ranged combat occasionally, although she prefers to keep him safe from enemies. Aside from this, she is one of the stealthier members in the group, and often will scout ahead of the group in order to get information on enemies.

Vex's favored terrain types are forests, mountains, and the Underdark. She is also an accomplished tracker, and can use her abilities to hunt her enemies. Vex is also fluent in several languages: Common, Elvish, Draconic, Abyssal, and Undercommon. She also learned how to use Thieves' Cant after learning from Vax.

Unofficially, she is the treasurer for Vox Machina, and often only gives cryptic answers when questioned by the group about how much gold they have.

Vex, like her brother, is bisexual. She has shown interest in Jarett Howarth, Zahra Hydris, and Percival de Rolo, and she has even flirted with everyone they have come across, a fact that was referenced when Vex refused to pretend to be Vax's wife for a ruse and Vax retorted that she "come[s] on to every human, orc, and half-elf in the entire kingdom."

Vex became the first party member to die outside of combat in "The Sunken Tomb" (4x06) when the party found one of the Vestiges of the Divergence, the Deathwalker's Ward, and tried to liberate it. Vex tried to search for traps, but Percy ended up triggering one by accident that damaged and killed her. Fortunately, Kashaw, who was traveling with the group at the time, managed to initiate a risky Revivify ritual for her, which ended up bringing her back to life.
