“I am the god Apostolos. The Harbinger of Telikos. The Final Fate of all. Beloved son of Apollymi the Great Destroyer. My will makes the will of the universe.”
Acheron Parthenopaeus, aka Ash, aka Bad Ass Atlantean God, aka Akri, aka T-Rex, aka Smex on a stick.
Ash was young when he died and became the first Dark-Hunter. He wrote the Dark-Hunter Creed and Code, which makes him their leader of sorts. Ash makes an appearance throughout the series because he has a pivotal role in this world. He is quite elusive and mysterious throughout, which make his personal story quite incredible. We don’t get his personal story until 15 books in. The wait is worth it, trust me. I don’t think I’ve ever read something so emotional, ever. It truly melted my soul. What happens to him is beyond horrific, yet he remains one of the most magnanimous characters I’ve ever encountered.
“Yes, Soteria. I have. I assure you, my life has never been an easy one and you should be grateful every day you live that you can’t imagine what kind of childhood I had.”
”I’m sorry, Ash. I didn’t know.”
“It’s easy to look at people and make quick judgments about them, their present, and their past, but you’d be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows to the world is only one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight. And more often than not, it’s lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundations of their soul.”
Seriously, I would fight for that man. Plus, he’s an ancient Atlantean god, which means he has lots of…experience. I would take care of him, he would really take care of me. Win/Win, I say.
He had been built to please, and trained to pleasure. Everything about him from the sleek muscles that rippled to the deep, erotic timber in his voice seduced anyone who came into contact with him. Like a lethal wild animal, he moved with a primal promise of danger and masculine power. With the promise of supreme sexual fulfillment.
6’8” ppl. Big man. Everywhere.
Born in 954 BC! Lots and lots of time to perfect his skills.
He’s blonde, but hates it. He’s kinda goth/punk-like, and usually dyes it black & red.
He is one fierce son of a bitch, but damn, he possesses more humanity than most humans.
His best friend is a Charonte demon named Simi. She’s pretty much a daughter-figure to him, and he would lay his life down for her.
When he loves, he loves deep.
Oh, and he’s a smartass. Man after my ♥.
Artemis: “I don’t like your hair black.”
Ash: “And I don’t like your head attached to your shoulders. Guess we can’t all have what we want, huh?”
“Actions that sometimes seem mean aren’t. Rather they are done by the ones we love in order to protect us without our knowing it.”
Ash: “What else can I do to piss you off?”
Tory: “You can leave me.”
Ash: “I would never do that, Tory. No one can live without their heart and that’s what you are to me.”
Tory: “You would give John Travolta a run for his money.”
Ash: “Yeah, and I’m sorry about my clothes. I tried, but I just couldn’t bring myself to wear that. Hell, I couldn’t do the disco look even when it was popular. I swear I’m allergic to polyester. Thank God for the punk movement. Otherwise I’d have been naked for a decade.”
Ash: “Because I don’t feel broken when you look at me.”
Tory: “How could you feel broken?”
Ash: “I was shattered as a child and thrown away, like a piece of trash no one wanted. But you don’t treat me like that. You see in me the human bit and you touch that part of me. You make me feel whole and wanted.”
Can you tell I’m a fan? Really. I am. Major love to Ash. ♥
My Ash is being played by hunky Travis Fimmel, who is obviously a fan favorite.
