Shadow of a Horned God
Aethiae, called “the Cruel”, is an Ancillae of Clan Toreador, childe of Brenwald and a walker on Via Crudelitas. He is known for his ambition and distrust towards almost everyone. Only about 150 years undead, Aethiae has received the rank of Ancillae quicker than most in these troubled times. He serves as the informal Keeper of Rowena, directing most actions carried out by her foremost spy, Abrachoz. He is currently being held captive in Verulamium in the hands of Octavius Sibius and his coterie, after being kidnapped by Janos.
