Atticus Anoethite, also known as Atticus Rosington, is a member of the Port City Eight and a main protagonist in The Demon's Light. After waking up in an unfamiliar barn with retrograde amnesia and meeting three new companions (Chris Wellington, Melissa Devlin and Savannah Whitesmith), he sets off on a journey across a seemingly new world.
Atticus is a 17-year-old teenage male of tall height with an angular face, sharp green eyes, light skin, and black unkempt 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.
He also has an additional outfit of traditional Alchem guard garb, originally used to sneak into one of their bases.
Due to events in "Roaming King," he wields a scar on his face that extends from the bottom of his left cheek, across his nose, and ends near the middle of the other cheek.
For the most part, Atticus is quick and level-headed, openly curious about situations. Contrary to his calm side, he often resorts to vulgarities when caught off-guard and has a strong determination to finish tasks.
Before he lost his memory, his personality was vastly different. He had a laid-back approach to life, displayed hostility and a self-centered attitude, and had loyalty to almost no one; often being unfaithful to his girlfriend and committing several acts of infidelity.
Due to the death of his parents at the age of two, Atticus was adopted by Theo and Vanessa Rosington, a Silivian city councilman and his wife. After Theo became governor of Silivia, Atticus began to perform poorly in school and caused various troubles around the city with his small group of friends. Despite his poor reputation, he managed to develop a relationship with Lisa Fiss — who, little to her knowledge, he was often unfaithful towards. Due to being a fan of sports, Atticus would often skip classes and play basketball with 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 would all meet weekly to play the sport together. Eventually, Sebastian invited Atticus and Jordan to meet his other friends. Jordan refused, but Atticus agreed and Sebastian led him to his group's hangout place.
After a few weeks of going there, Sebastian's friend group told Atticus about a plan they were developing. They wanted to leave Silivia and form their own demon hunting militia and asked him to join them. Atticus was unsure and left for the day. After asking Jordan and Lisa for their advice, both of them expressed anger at the plan and mentioned it would be foolish to even entertain their offer. Atticus disagreed with them and joined the group shortly after. After various days of 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 led 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 involved with organized crime. After an argument, Atticus fled his home and met up with Jordan and Lisa, who he informed about his plans to leave the city that night. With another argument ensuing, he ended his relationship with Lisa and left to meet Sebastian and his friends.
The group left Silivia and began to hunt for demons. After they found a small pack near Gladea, they were attacked viciously, resulting in the death of most of their members. Upon finding the bodies of the group members, except for Atticus, Silivian officials declared the group dead, with Atticus announced as presumed dead.
Since the events of "In Somnis Veritas," Atticus has the ability to see various kinds of visions. The first set of visions allowed him to see through the disguise of a Dream Eater, with the second set showing prophetic visions of peoples' deaths.
In "Roaming King," he developed more vision types. One consisting of a dream alerting him of people tracking his group and the second revealing the location of an attacker.
