| Xan Kriegor|
|Place of Birth:||Unknown|
|Weapon Preference:||Shock Rifle|
Origin and identity is unknown. Various rumors exist as to who or what Xan is. The most popular rumor being that he is the man who heads up Liandri Corporation and has poured his vast wealth into building the most advanced battle suit ever, solely for maintaining champion status in the Tournament.
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.
Xan Kriegor was long regarded as invincible, until Malcolm defeated him in the fourth officially recognized Tournament finals. After a long hiatus, he has returned to lead the Liandri team, The Corrupt, back to the championship. Xan is sitting out the early rounds, which he perceives as beneath his attention.
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 (UT). 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 UT2003.
In 2303 (UT2004) 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.
It is implied in Unreal Championship 2, in Devastation's ladder (which is somehow canonical with the events of the game) that she was postulated by the Liandri as her successor.
Xan in the Tournament
- Multiple years before 2291, in illegitimate tournaments (2283, 2284, 2285, 2286, 2287, 2288, 2289, 2290).
A number of maps in the games are described to be property of Xan Kriegor. These maps are:
- AS-Rook (UT)
- DM-HyperBlast (UT), the game's final level where Xan features as the boss
- DM-HyperBlast2 (UT2004)
- DM-Tempest (UT)
- 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.
