While the tried and true method of concealing one's secret identity behind the facade of a wealthy, empty headed playboy has served many superheroes admirably in the past, in Xavier's case, it happens to be true. He is every bit as shallow and self absorbed as he appears to be in his public persona.
Xavier possesses the rare gift of being able to replicate intricate physical movement simply by watching someone else perform it. Originally, during his days in XSNRG, he utilized this ability to rapidly memorize complicated dance steps. Since becoming KnightFalcon, however, he uses it to quickly master martial arts moves.
Like much of the rest of his crime fighting gear, KnightFalcon simply claimed the Nightsider's utility belt as his own. Unfortunately for him, however, he has no idea what most of the gadgets in the utility belt actually do, and for those precious few he does understand, he frequently gets confused as to which is which. This seems to be particularly the case with his pepper spray and his communicator.
While other superheroes have, in the past, made spotlights embossed with their unique emblem available to shine in the night sky for the authorities to summon crimefighters to city hall, the tradition has fallen out of fashion of late. KnightFalcon does carry a portable signal device, but he only uses it when he needs help, shining it in the sky in the hopes that other heroes will come to his rescue. To date, it remains his most used piece of equipment.
Weaknesses and Limitations
Dumb as a Sack of Doorknobs
Xavier's substandard education paired with growing up as a pampered rock star has resulted in an intellect so limited that he barely qualifies as a sentient organism. While he was assigned a private tutor while in the band, his would-be educator was quickly sucked into the so-called 'Rock and Roll lifestyle' and thus spent most tutoring sessions under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Unfortunately, Xavier has taken his incoherent and often contradictory ramblings to heart, forming the core of a worldview that makes little or no sense to rational human beings.
Xavier is under the mistaken impression that his archenemy is an evil master of disguise known only as 'The Mascot'. In truth, there is no such person, but that has not stopped the KnightFalcon from forcibly assaulting six different sports team mascots on eight different occasions.
The Salvation Army
Xavier is also under the mistaken impression that the Salvation Army is, in fact, a real army, one bent on global domination. During the holidays, he often mounts a guerrilla war against the humanitarian organization until other heroes can talk some sense into him.
Xavier St. Cloud was born Cletus J. Thibodeaux, the 7th of 12 children that comprised the third largest family in his trailer park. Considered dumb even by the Louisiana Board of Education's standards, Cletus seemed destined for a life of manual labor later cut short by a drunken tractor accident, a fate which had already claimed the lives of four of his siblings on three different occasions. However, while watching the popular TV show, America's Got Nothing Better to Watch, Cletus' parents were startled to see their six year old son effortlessly mimicking the moves of the dancers on screen.
Mistaking this for talent, they enrolled Cletus in a series of dance competitions, which he routinely tied for first (he could only dance as well as the person he copied). A talent agent saw Cletus at one of these competitions and realized he would be ideal for the pre-manufactured boy band his soulless corporate masters had mandated. The agent deftly negotiated with the none-to-bright Thibodeauxs, who quickly agreed to sell their son into the equivalent of slavery in return for eight hundred dollars and a carton of menthol cigarettes.
The agent took Cletus to Los Angeles, where he promptly changed his name to Xavier St. Cloud, the core of a soon to be seemingly omnipresent boy band. The other members of the band were Sky, (the cute one), North (the shy one), Ryder (the cuddly one), and Glen (the curiously androgynous one). Together, the first letters of their names spelled XSNRG, which became the band's name.
Together, the band ruled the airwaves from 1996 to late 1996. Their reputation of being a completely formulaic band was cemented further when they accidentally turned a memo from their recording company outlining 'ideal song elements' into a number one hit. In 1998, when their brief fame had all but vanished, they began to squabble among each other. They were particularly hard on Xavier, who had been promoted as the face of the band even though he had the least amount of talent. They eventually kicked him out of the band altogether, and reformed under the new name Four Minus X.
Xavier had no real idea what to do from there. His vast fortune was being controlled by accountants, and he was able to live quite comfortably off of the interest alone. He wandered the globe for a while, seeking the mysteries of the Far West only to later find that he had gotten it confused with the Far East, which, by that point, he decided was prohibitively far away (although, to be truthful, if he had continued in the same direction for less than 30 miles, he would have breached the farthest reaches of the Far West).
Eventually, he returned to the United States, settled in Paragon City, and bought a rather sizable mansion at auction. The original owner was the billionaire industrialist, Jason Van Thorne, who had been reported as killed by falling rubble during the Rikti Invasion. Xavier started the bidding at one million dollars, and despite the fact that he was the only party bidding on the estate, somehow managed to secure it for just over ten million dollars.
The estate came with a butler, which he promptly named Chauncy because he was unable to remember the butler's actual name and unaware that naming butlers is not actually a privilege reserved for the head of the household.
A few months after moving in, Xavier made a startling discovery while rummaging through the mansion's wine cellar. He uncovered a hidden door that lead to a vast, underground crime fighting lair filled with high tech gear. An exasperated Chauncy explained that the lair had belonged to the costumed crimefighter, the NightSider, who had been killed during the Rikti Invasion. Realizing that his life had lacked focus since he had left his band, Xavier decided to use the gear in the lair to become a crimefighter, too. Using the name KnightFalcon (which he though looked 'totally wicked' when written out), Xavier took the NightSider's hastily repainted equipment and hit the streets as a costumed vigilante.
