"This world does not belong to the angels and demons to do as they wish - It belongs to us and its time for us, and only us, to decide to live in it as we wish, not ruled and treated like tamed animals by higher beings."
― Atticus Anoethite

Atticus Anoethite is one of the main characters in The Demon's Light. He is the brother of Steven and the half-brother of Melissa Devlin.


Atticus is a fair-skinned teenage male with green eyes and black, neck-length, choppy hair. He often wears a long-sleeved gray jacket with a high collar, a dark shirt, and black pants, with the addition of combat boots.

Role in series

Atticus Anoethite woke up at the barn with no memory of events prior, except for a flash of blinding 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.

After bickering several times with Chris, he privately decided to stay with the group for a while. When the group, having ventured from the barn, had run 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 is mostly quiet, but often is the calmest member of the group. He often bickers quite a bit with the other team members, due to not being as out-going as them, often choosing to stay to himself. This makes him come off as somewhat of a loner. He is also generally very confident, which helps when he has to make speeches. Atticus also tends to use logic and never fails to think before he speaks.
