Attis Aquitainus High Lord of Aquitaine

Attis Aquitainus High Lord of Aquitaine

Attis is the High Lord of Aquitaine and the husband of Aquitainus Invidia. A tall man with a leonine build, Attis has eyes of pitch black and dark golden hair that falls to his shoulders. He has his vices, which include but are not limited to dancing girls and gloating after a victory. Attis has had no faith in the house of Gaius since the murder of his friend Septimus fifteen years before Furies of Calderon. While he has little to no loyalty to Gaius, he is fiercely loyal to Alera and is a capable field commander.

As a High lord, Aquitainus Attis demonstrates ability in all crafting disciplines, Water, Wind, Earth, Fire and Metal. His furies are unnamed but manifest as follows: Wind as a Shark, Fire as willow tree, water as a lizard, Earth as a Snake, Wood as a great Bull with horns as long as legion spears.


Attis appears in all six books.

Early Life[]

Attis was a close friend of Septimus during his youth. They attended the Academy together, where Attis befriended Antillus Raucus and Araris Valerian. He was aware of the plots against Septimus and agreed to join him to deal with the perpetrators once Septimus left the Calderon Valley. When the valley came under attack by the Marat, Attis rushed to the Calderon Valley to join Septimus. He arrived too late, but was there when Septimus's body was found. He could tell that furycrafting had been used against him and thus Alerans were responsible for his death. It was this event, specifically Gaius's inability to protect Septimus, which led Attis to turn against Gaius and decide to pursue the throne for himself.

Furies of Calderon[]

Attis was the main force behind the plot to overthrow Sextus by manipulating the Marat to assault the Calderon Valley, thereby showing the weakness of the House of Gaius in protecting the citizens of the Realm. While the plot fails for the most part, it is revealed that Attis is also sleeping with Caria—the First Lord’s wife.
