Character History: Xu was born with his twin brother Xa to the Swiftclaw family and spent his early years under his strict but caring father Zu who taught them both how to be warriors and leaders in their own right.

The twins eventually would go to the Serpent spine wall and train among the Shado-Pan and fight among them for a time, years passed and Xu and Xa returned home stronger and wiser. Years passed and the family prospered until one day the mists dropped and a new war was upon them but the house refused to choose a side. When Garrosh attacked the Vale Xu and his brother Xa marched to it's defense, the ensuing battle left their house devastated and Xa lie dead.
