John about Xavier in his Trap/Test
Xavier Chavez was a drug dealer, "offering hope to the desperate for a price." He was later framed by Detective Eric Matthews for a crime that he was not responsible for, which resulted in him being sent to prison. Several years later, he was kidnapped by The Jigsaw Killer, and trapped in a house being filled with a nerve agent that would kill him within two hours unless he was able to retrieve one of the antidotes hidden around the house in Saw II. According to the Saw II website, Xavier was written to be 40 years old.
After waking up in the nerve gas house, Xavier unintentionally cause Gus's death by attempting to use a key on the Magnum Eyehole door. Once the door opened, Xavier took off into the house on his own, not wanting to be slowed down by the others.
In the basement he threatened Obi with a knife, forcing him to enter a furnace to retrieve two antidotes, and later threw Amanda into a pit of needles, a test that was intended for him. Amanda found the key that was needed to open a steel door containing another antidote, but Xavier fumbled with the key and failed to open it in time. After that, he discovered that numbers had been written on the back of each of their necks, and when put together, they would provide the combination to a safe which contained another antidote.
After reading the number on the back of Gus's neck, Xavier killed Jonas with a nail-studded baseball bat for his number. He then pursued the remaining victims, and left Addison to bleed to death in the Razor Box trap before hunting down Daniel and Amanda. Along the way, Xavier discovered a discarded photo that revealed that Daniel was the son of the man who framed and sent him to prison.
After cornering the two of them in a disused subterranean bathroom, Amanda reminded Xavier that he'd have no way to read his own number if she didn't tell him. Realizing he had no other choice, Xavier used his knife to cut the skin from the back of his neck. A brief glimpse revealed Xavier's number to be an indigo 25. He then reached for Daniel, who sprang to life and slashed his neck with a hacksaw in self defense.
