"Oh? So you're escaping like a bitch while everything around you is burning down?" —Atticus Anoethite, Primo Victoria: Part II
Atticus Anoethite is a main protagonist of The Demon's Light series. After waking up in an unfamiliar barn with retrograde amnesia and three new companions (Chris Wellington, Melissa Devlin and Savannah Whitesmith), he sets off on a journey across a seemingly new world, one ridden with lost memories of his past life.
Atticus is a 17-year-old teenage male of tall height with green eyes, tanned skin, and black choppy hair. For most of Season One, he is often seen wearing a long-sleeved gray jacket with a high collar, a dark shirt, and black pants, with the addition of combat boots.
Due to the death of his parents at the age of three, Atticus was adopted by Silivia City Councilman, Theo Rosington, the eventual mayor. Now a teenager, he is doing poorly in school and causing various troubles around town, with his small group of friends and his girlfriend, who, little to her knowledge, he is often unfaithful towards. Due to being a fan of basketball, Atticus would often skip classes and play against his best friend, Jordan Walesh, in the city park. While playing one day, the two meet Sebastian Cloverdale.
After a game of basketball, Sebastian, Jordan, and Atticus became friends. Due to their new friendship, they all meet weekly to play basketball together. Eventually, Sebastian invites Atticus and Jordan to meet his other friends. Jordan refuses, but Atticus met with Sebastian's gang of friends.
After a few weeks of going to their meeting place, Sebastian's gang lets Atticus in on a secret. They planned on leaving Silivia and forming their own demon hunting group and asked him to join. Atticus was unsure and left for the day. Asking Jordan and his girlfriend, Lisa Fiss, for their advice, both of them tell him not to join, that it would be foolish. He disagreed with them and joined the group. After planning, Sebastian decided that the group would need weapons and picked Atticus to go on a trip with him to buy the needed supplies. Going to the Silivian ghettos, Sebastian revealed ties to a local mafia gang - he was the son of the Cloverdale mafia don - and lead Atticus to a black market shop, where the two each spent their fathers' funds on buying the weapons.
Upon going home that night, Atticus ran into a fuming Theo, who had discovered what Atticus spent the money on and accused him of being caught up in organized crime. After an argument, Atticus fled his home and met up with Jordan and Lisa, who he informed about his plans to leave town. He then broke up with Lisa.
The group left town and began to hunt for demons. After they found a small group near the outskirts of Silivia, they were attacked viciously resulting in the death of most of their members. Upon finding the group members, except for Atticus, Silivian officials declared the group dead, with Atticus announced as presumed dead.
Role in series
Atticus woke up at the barn with no memory of events prior, except for a flashing bright red light. Upon seeing Chris Wellington, Melissa Devlin, and Savannah Whitesmith in the barn as well, he quickly distanced himself from the group, disliking crowds and preferring to stay to himself. After several rounds of bickering with Chris, he privately decided to stay with the group for a while.
When the group, having ventured from the barn, ran into a mysterious man who introduced himself as Gabriel Alchemilia, Atticus showed rash judgment by quickly agreeing after Gabriel offered to take the group to Alchem. Corp.
After arriving at Alchem. Corp, Atticus set off on his own to locate Gabriel, who had separated from the group after arrival and quickly got lost.
Atticus arrives back to the group to an angered Gabriel pointing a gun directly at Marshall's head. Savannah and Atticus attempt to reason with the guards while Melissa and Chris attended to Marshall Rooke's wounds.
As a result of the car crash from Melissa's attempts to flee Alchem. guards, Atticus was trapped under the crushed rear of the car. With a dry throat, he was barely capable of speech. Through the efforts a desperate Savannah, and a set of rogue thieves, Atticus would be successfully pulled out of the crashed Alchem vehicle.
Successfully out, he quickly questioned Savannah on where they were.
In a dream created through The Contraption, Atticus appears on a dinner date with Blossom Cane. After apologizing for the wait, an oddly familiar waiter with white hair would approach the two.
Atticus is mostly quiet, the calmest member of the group, with strong morals and a high intellect.
