Ogre guildmaster of the Ken Ta Ral merchant mage guild in Manxiga.
Xin Hao has taken a fancy to Blueblood, expecting that he will make a great mage. He personally set his test, and cast a spell on the party as they are seeking to help Blueblood on his test. Xin Hao was the person the party turned to to help some dimensional travellers find their way home.
He has also since given Blueblood a quest to obtain and enhance a few spell components for some strange creations he has been working on, involving suits of armour involved in combat with elementals, adventurine gems touched by the first rays of the sun, and other things.
