Belus spent most of his life a simple hand and guard for the Gree Braid sambison herd. That changed, however, with the attack. That gave him a degree of notoriety he has not fully embraced, and contact with Strangers which he does not truly enjoy.

Backstory Tie-Ins

  • "I have sworn to protect Dr. Titania Kuznetsov"
    • 16 years ago, Belus was on his first trade expedition. Another young member of the Gree Regents did something stupid and tried to steal a "little trinket" from the OLYMPUS contingent just to say he did. He got caught, and there were massive negotiations for his life. The Gree traders lost their shirt, and Belus swore to protect Titania from thieves and all other threats whenever they are in the same place. Titania and the others from OLYMPUS accepted this as part of the bargain for the cousin's life. Belus keeps it for a combination of reasons. First, it hasn't come up much. He's a guard by occupation, and on trade expeditions he ends up guarding both Regents and someone from OLYMPUS. Second, something about honour. And Third, since the <<Extremely violent event involving Brother Raven>>, Belus feels a lot of responsibility to act exactly the way Regents are "supposed to" act
  • Presumed Knowledge is Arrogance and I stood watch together against the chaos.
  • Brother Raven helped me get out of a siege alive.

  • Tempest believes I would make a good bodyguard.
  • Presumed Knowledge knows how my parents truly died. (IC does not know this yet)
