Atredius - pronounced "Aa-tray-oooze" - is now the only son of his parents; Samantha and Hawke. He is about 18 years old. His father is a guard based in Grorr, and is a first cousin to the Farstrider twins.
Atredius had a twin brother, but he was killed several years ago by a criminal, seeking vengeance on Hawke.
He has an older cousin who he idolized as a child, and looked up to as a young man.
When he was old enough. Atredius enrolled in the military academy in Grorr. He has recently qualified and been posted to Cape Salarain.
He has a short crop of dark hair, brown eyes and is average height. He knows he to use a sword, but has never had to use it to defend himself. His main doubt is a sense of failure - that he can never live up to his father expectations of him.
