"Reunions" (1x33)[edit | edit source]

While looking for Cassandra de Rolo in Whitestone Castle, Vax'ildan surprised Anders, who was threatening Cassandra. Anders cut Cassandra's throat in front of Vax, but it was actually an illusion.[6] Vox Machina engaged Anders in combat—and defeated him—with Percy delivering the killing shot.

Afterwards, Vax searched the Professor's desk and found a collection of letters describing the Briarwoods' machinations, written in the hand of Lord Riskel Daxio.[7]
