The Treasure Hunter character introduction: Aetos
Illustration by Rosalie Fitzpatrick
He is the God of eagles and yet he’s always at the whim of those Gods mightier than him. Despairing of ever escaping Zeus’s control to start a family of eagles he happily accepts Prometheus’s order for him to remain by Prometheus’s side. Aetos is also set upon atoning for having eaten Prometheus’s liver every day for eons. Aetos is disturbed and romantically thwarted by the stupidity of mortal birds. Until he meets Crackers. Then he has a new bundle of romantic problems to deal with.
