Xander Cook is the son of Titus Kiriakis, Victor's brother and Ms. Cook, 'Alexandros' who arrived in Salem in 2015 as Xander. As a teen, Xander was involved in manslaughter that Victor Kiriakis paid someone off to reduce the charges to assault and battery. He kept an eye on Xander over the years and when Xander came to town allegedly to find work, Victor took him under his wing, stating he would help if Xander was on the up and up. Xander's real reason for returning was to follow Serena Mason to discuss the scam they were connected to which involved getting diamonds from an elephant statue she and Eric purchased in Africa years before. He met and took a romantic interest in Nicole Walker and it was revealed that he was jealous of Daniel Jonas and Brady Black with whom he would see at sleepaway camp as children. His jealousy and anger got the best of him and even Victor found him to be a loose cannon. Xander fell for Nicole, who only used him to find out what he and Serena were hiding, in order to protect her friend and the man she was in love with, Eric Brady.
