Biography

Born in the Achaean city of Redfield to a small family of commoners, Caiden started working to help his parents as soon as he was physically able. His father was a member of the Red Legion of Lake Demon, and Caiden followed in his father's footsteps. However, Caiden fell out of favor with his superiors after he directly disobeyed his orders, choosing to protect innocents over pursuing the legion's enemies. He was discharged from the legion soon thereafter, and he then became a Venator, based on their noble goals. He was partnered with Gwen Vergil, and the two quickly became close friends. He has since gained a reputation as an incredibly skilled monster hunter, earning him the name "The Red Lion" due to his heritage, former service in the Red Legion, and his bravery and cunning on the hunt.

Description

Caiden is a very intimidating individual who looks like he could easily wrestle a bear. He has incredibly broad shoulders and thick, muscle-bound arms that match his strong physique. But his build is nonetheless attractive, being athletic and toned, and he does not resemble a burly brute or thug. Caiden's chiseled face is classically handsome, with high cheekbones, strong features, and dark eyebrows, accompanied by his short-cropped, rather spiky dark brown hair and a short stubble on his face. His right eye is deep blue, but his left is always covered by a black leather eye-patch.

Armor and Weapons

Being a Venator, Caiden generally wears relatively light armor in order to better sneak and to trap the monsters he hunts. He wears a chain shirt made of deepsilver underneath a suit of form-fitting leather armor, all short-sleeved to allow for more freedom of movement. Caiden always wears his dark blue Venator cloak, or sometimes a simple dark blue sash, bound with his silver Venator brooch to mark his allegiance to the order. His weapons include a steel broadsword, a silver dagger, a crossbow, and a quiver of bolts - both steel and silver - that he carries on his belt. He also keeps himself well-supplied with various potions to use while hunting monsters.

Personality

Strong-willed, steadfast, and maybe even a little single-minded, Caiden is a man who truly believes in doing what is right. He always puts others before himself and does everything in his power to protect any innocent lives. Although a Venator, Caiden does not view the order as simple 'monster hunters,' but instead as guardians of those who cannot protect themselves. He frequently tries to find a peaceful solution to monster problems, though the monster rarely cooperates, and he is a successful and deadly monster hunter if things turn violent. Caiden is a very good-hearted person, and he is friendly and easygoing most of the time, showing great loyalty to those close to him. On the job, however, Caiden is nothing but professional, not allowing anything to distract him from his goals... even if he's learning more and more just how disturbing it can be when the lines of morality, of man versus monster, become blurred. In conversation, he is incredibly laconic.

Appearances

Caiden first appeared in the short story Hunted, and he will be featured in many future stories, both short stories and novels. Caiden is also an important character later in The Prophecy of the Six.
