Nicknamed Zee, Xenos is a techy who loves computers almost as much as he loves music. If he’s not on a takedown, he’s fooling around with computers, or at a concert. He attends concerts all over the world and has the largest music collection on the planet. He owns every instrument ever invented and can play each of them expertly. He started a band made up of musically inclined Luminas, but he’s still hunting for an elusive front man, someone to sing the songs he writes and do them justice.
