Mr Boreas’s Family:
General Torbes - Just confuse the issue we have two
of these. 19 years before the main story starts there is a General Torbes
but 19 years after this his son takes over the position.
Mr Lieth Boreas - The name ‘Boreas’ comes
from Greek Mythology. Boreas is the name of the North Wind and the son
of Astraeus and Eos. Anya’s history and Culture teacher. Mr Boreas
turns away from his faith in the Gods after two of his friend’s
Gunahl and Azri are killed. Azri leaves behind a wife and a baby girl
and Mr Boreas blames the Gods and chooses to fight them as best he can.
General Torbes - Our second General Torbes this time
the younger one of Anya’s time who is only four years older than
her. Anya first sees him with his future wife Kirana (arranged marriage
of course. We’d all need to be worried if it wasn’t!) and
her friend Zafira (based on the Arabic name ‘Zafirah’ which
means ‘victory’). I played with the letters of Boreas and
replaced the ‘a’ with a ‘T’ to get his name.
He is a very smug and irritating character who thinks he’s better
than everyone else, just because he’s a General. I must point
out that he has unusually bright blond hair, which is the result of
a rather nasty accident with a potion bottle, and has earned himself
the nickname ‘lantern head’ because it is so shockingly
