Xavier is a short, fair-skinned boy with gray, spiked-up hair and turquoise eyes. He has two sets of clothing, the first one appears militaristic: a dark-red tunic with jet-black cuffs and gold borders and shoulder straps, two gold fourragère attached to the right shoulder strap from the front and back that meet in the right tunic's inner flap, a blue sash attached to the left shoulder strap that has a medium-blue button with two red and white small sashes, and the blue sash's end is fastened to the waist by a turquoise-blue belt, jet-black shorts with gold borders, black shin-high socks with blue strips at the cuff and red stripes below it, and brown shoes with red stripes at the base. He has an "X" style buckle on his belt and a red "X" on each lapel.
When not beyblading, Xavier wears a medium-blue robe with a white fluffy border and a red-violet interior, and walks with a white claymore sword-style cane with dark-blue gems.
Xavier's second attire is his training clothes: a worn-out honolulu-blue gi with rips and the sleeves torn off at the shoulders, a jet-black belt, jet-black shoes and white wraps on the forearms and ankles.
Xavier is a calm and friendly individual with an adventurous personality, as shown when he found an ancient sword. He is shown to take training and battling very serious. He also has a good sense of humor, something he picked up from his mentor, Xander Shakadera.
Xavier has also been shown to be altruistic and willing to put others before himself, as he once saved Naru from falling into a trap on the ghost pirate ship.
Being born into royalty does not appear to have affected Xavier's personality in any way, as he maintains a friendly and courteous demeanor towards everyone he meets. He is also very hospitable, welcoming Aiger to his palace and offering to help him train to improve the bond between him and his Bey.
Xavier is of royal descent, meaning that he's the prince and is chosen to be the next king. After passing Xander Shakadera's training, he was able to pull out the legendary hero's sword and used it to make his Bey: Breaker Xcalius 1 Sword, being taught by Xander about Beyblade.
- Breaker Xcalius 1' Sword: Xavier's primary Beyblade in Beyblade Burst Turbo.
- Breaker Xcalius 1'Dagger Sword: Xavier's primary Beyblade in Beyblade Burst Turbo with the Dagger Disc Frame added.
- Dual Sabers
- Triple Saber
- Tetra Saber: While Xcalius is in Breaker Mode, the point on the 1' Forge Disc and the edge on the Sword Performance Tip align, creating a 4-point attack to deal massive damage.
- Penta Saber: By inserting a Dagger Frame on the 1' Forge Disc, Xcalius' alignment of the 1' Forge Disc, with the frame, and the edge on the Sword Performance Tip creates a 5-point attack, dealing even more damage than Tetra Saber.
- Saber Wall: Xcalius knocks its opponent into the wall, then uses the wall to lock down the opponent and hit them with a massive attack.

As a scion of royal blood, Xavier spent his childhood learning how to rule justly. Because he believes that rulers must be brave, Xavier strives to be brave himself. After extensive martial arts training, he became an apprentice to Xander Shakadera and inherited the Bey name Xcalius, eventually joining the Turbo 4. In order to further hone his own skill, Xavier departed on a journey to find a worthy rival.
When Xavier found a legendary sword, he met up with Xander and inspired him to forge Xavier's found sword into a Beyblade. Xander is Xavier's mentor and Xavier looks up to him. Interestingly enough, both of them are members of an elite Blader group consisting of 4 Bladers; Xander with the Supreme Four and Xavier with the Turbo 4. Xavier also mirrors some of Xander's mannerisms, such as his sense of humor and propensity for laughter. He also took on his mentor's discipline and strength.
When coming aboard the Battleship Cruise, Xavier joins Aiger's training session defeats him. Later when battling other bladers on The Battleship Cruise, Aiger challenges Xavier but loses. When Xavier tries to grab Xcalius after defeating Aiger, Xcalius bursts and Xavier declares Aiger as his rival.
Xavier respects Laban as a rival and friend.
