Like the rest of his kind, Xenagos was once a hedonist, leading a care free life of pleasure without inhibitions. At some point, this kind of lifestyle led to his ascension, his spark igniting during the Bakkeia.  Xenagos took advantage of his newfound status and perspective, engaging in relveries elsewhere in the Multiverse and enjoying the new pleasures availiable to him, but soon he was aware of a grim reality: that he, ultimately, was utterly insignificant in the grand scheme of things, and that the gods' reach was meaningless outside of Theros. Following the trauma of this revelation, and disilusioned with the meaningless hedonism, the satyr became progressively more ambitious.
Return to Theros
Some time later, Xenagos returned to his birthplane, finding his old hedonistic lifestyle exceedingly dull and the gods to be a farce that he was no longer willing to participate in.  His ambitions had evolved into a desire for outright godhood, to join or replace the pantheon of Theros, and so he began gathering his forces of eldritch, otherwordly monsters to attack the poleis of Meletis, Akros and Setessa. These attacks have become so severe that Heliod, the dominant deity of the plane, reached out to Elspeth to deal with the satyr, whom he refers to as "the usurper".
In circumstances largely under mystery, he managed to ascend to godhood. This occured during a minotaur siege at Akros, battled off by armies led by Elspeth. The victory celebration was the final ingredient to Xenagos' divine ascension, and and in the ensuing turmoil the Sun god's champion was ironically scapegoated for this, resulting in her exile to the wilderness. Xenagos now holds the position of the god of the revels, furthering the chaos and distrust of the established pantheon.

Xenagos was originally designed with a goat head, but this was scrapped due to him looking "too demonic and inhuman".
