After the Slayers 20th anniversary in 2010, I wanted to take this opportunity to pay tribute to XELLOSS, my favourite Slayers character, featuring and promoting the best Xelloss fanart around deviantART that I've found and considered to date
Xelloss (aka the Trickster Priest) is Hajime Kanzaka's character in the SLAYERS manga, novels and anime. He plays an important and prevalent role. Xellos is a 1012-year-old mazoku (a demon in the Slayers universe). He is the General and Priest of the Beastmaster Zelas Metallium, one of the five Mazoku Lords in Slayers universe.
He acts under the command of his master. Xelloss helps Lina Inverse and her friends, even though he tends to manipulate them, since his main goal as a mazoku is to return the universe into the nothingness of the Sea of Chaos.
Xelloss is extremely loyal to his master Zelas Metallium. Even though he has saved Lina's and her friends' lives on a few occasions, his reasons for doing so have never been revealed.
Xelloss' true appearance resembles a black cone/whirlwind, and he tends to behave like a charismatic and playful trickster, answering nearly all questions directed at him or his true plans with "Sore wa himitsu desu ( = "that is a secret").
