Mostly a philosophical question. What do you think Noah was trying to accomplish when he gave Xande mortality? Do you feel Xande missed the deeper meaning of it, or do you think that as the greatest wizard of all time, Noah could see the future and simply did this as fate. If the first hypothesis is true, what do you feel is the gift of being mortal?

To me it kind of seems like the gift of freedom. The others were eternally bound in servitude whereas Xande was given the freedom to live and die as he saw fit.

What Velo said, I feel that Noah had the highest expectations for Xande, and gave him the limited time to live so he would hopefully make the most of it. Noah gave him choice, and well... Xande took offense and went on to become our badguy.
