Now there was a wizard, I must admit. He nearly killed me twice during the wars even though he never truly took sides. Chaos or the Council, it mattered not to him: only knowledge and Dragons.


Maxos was once the greatest wizard in Rivellon. In ancient times he was an ally to Emperor Sigurd and later ruled the Battle Tower on Sentinel Island before disappearing without a trace.


Historically, Maxos dedicated himself to the pursuit of knowledge above all else, specifically knowledge about dragons. He even refused to officially side with anyone during the Wizard Wars, although he generally opposed the Black Ring as they acted as obstacles to his work, even nearly killing Behrlihn twice. At some point he gained the ability to grant the status of Dragon Knight to others, an ability previously only possessed by the dragons themselves.

Divinity II: Ego Draconis

When the Maxos Temple was under his control it was used as a test for the Initiates of the Dragon Knights. It has multiple rooms filled with traps, tricks and challenging puzzles. The Temple is now ruled by Amdusias, Lovis' rival.

Divinity: Dragon Commander

Before the events of the game, Maxos was part of an alliance with Sigurd and The Architect to unite Rivellon under one empire in the name of peace. After this was accomplished and Sigurd named emperor, he witnessed Sigurd and The Architect become enemies over their mutual love for a dragon, and Sigurd's eventual death at the hands of his bastard children.

Maxos was the one who originally hid the commander away as a child, to keep him from becoming corrupt as his half-siblings had. He had the Raven built around the demon Corvus, and mentally imprisoned him there while stealing magical secrets from his mind. Eventually, he sought out the commander to train him and lead a revolution against the other royal bastards.

Divinity: Original Sin

At some point before Original Sin, Maxos imprisoned the rhyming wizard Bellegar in a cave near Cyseal. He isn't particularly well known at this point but mages will sometimes invoke his name when casting spells.

  • There is a coffin near the battle tower. Near it is a letter that says: "Bury me in the shadow of the tower. Let me lie forever among the bones of the ancient ones that preceded me." The document is simply singed M. It might be Maxos but since Dragon Knights die in dragon form and the corpse is human it might not.
  • Maxos made a spell that reveals the Hall of Echoes, which can be found in his chamber. This is needed by the Slayer to be able to defeat Damian.
  • Despite being able to ask Bellegar who Maxos was, the player character in Original Sin will sometimes use Maxos' name in combat, implying his name has become more famous than the wizard himself.
