Expect this page to get more profiles as more characters enter the scene. Also, I will not post full bios for everyone, to avoid spoilers :) 

The Greeks

Fotis   Fotis Porfyros 

 Age: 14 

Languages: Greek, English, some German phrases

Fotis is a born and raised Athenian. His father was a doctor and his mother was a schoolteacher.

Like so many of his peers, he was orphaned during the Greco-Italian war, when his father fell at the front of Pindos, and soon after, during the early days of the Nazi Occupation, his mother was also killed during one of the many violent evictions of orphanages by nazis, when she tried to object to the orphanage building being comandeered. 

Left to fend for his own self, virtually homeless as well as orphaned, Fotis spends every day trying to survive and Resist. 

 

 

basil   Basil Lokrides 

   Age: 25

   Languages: Greek, English, Latin, French

 Basil had completed Law School and was well on his way to complete the extra training to become a prosecutor when the war struck. He is one of the Greco-Italian war casualties. He fought valiantly in Kalpaki and Pindos, in the norther mountain ridges of Greece and returned home a victor, before the Nazis decided to invade and occupy his country. 

He lost his right forearm in the war, where he also got his scars- though he will not say how. 

The things he saw and lived through have left him jaded and cynical, but that doesn't stop him from offering Fotis the protection and support he needs to keep leaping and causing damage to the occupiers, no matter how small scale it appears. 

 

diomedes   Diomedes Sergiakis 

   Age: 12 

   Languages: Greek, Italian/German phrases 

  Diomedes is a son of Crete- of which he is quite proud. He ascribes fully to the Cretan ideals, and seeks thus to prove himself a man in battle. Which his family in Crete felt he was not with just 12 winters under his belt, and tried to salvage him from getting killed in battle by sending him to Athens' port city Piraeus, where his aunt lived, before an invasion of Crete could take place. 

 However, in a bombing of Piraeus, his aunt perished and he was left to fend for himself. A tough task that however became easier the moment his path crossed Fotis', and they joined forces.

 

 

anna   Anna Ikaria 

   Age: 10 

  Languages: Greek, Italian/German phrases 

 Anna is the daughter of a notary, and member of a pretty traditional greek-jewish family. Like Fotis, she has been born and raised in Athens, and her family was definitely Athenian. 

 Her mother died long before the war, and Anna says she doesn't remember her. Her father was killed in one of the nazi road blocks, weeks after nazi rule was established in Athens. 

She is extremely good at all sorts of crafts, provided she is sure it is ladylike to engage in them. 

 

alex   Alexandra 

  Age: 10

  Languages: Greek, Italian/German phrases 

  Alexandra demands that she be called Alex under pain of a punch in the nose. She does her best to pass as a boy, and she is fairly successful since at the orphanage she had to have her hair shaved off to fend off lice. 

 She says she doesn't remember her family at all, and that she has always been living off the streets. She definitely has enough street savvy to support that claim. 

 Her biggest current ambition is to be as much like Basil as possible- much to Basil's horror. 

 

pelagia   Grandma Pelagia 

   Age: 67 

   Languages: Greek 

 She is Basil's grandmother, the one who raised him ever since his parents died when he was quite young. She is a strong willed, tough woman who worked several jobs to support him, from cleaning houses to cooking and maintenance for richer households. Basil loves her dearly. 

 

 

 

stelios   Stelios

   Age: 11 

  Stelios comes across Fotis' path right after the execution of a man in the streets of Plaka, whom Stelios identifies as his brother, and member of the Resistance. Left alone to fend for himself, he has a promise of help by Fotis, whenever he needs it. 

 

 

 

 

 

martha   Martha Peani 

   Age: 23 

   Languages: Greek, German, English 

  Martha used to be Basil's fiancee right up until he returned from the front. Nobody knows exactly what happened, except that their breakup was hard, bitter, and it left both her and him grim faced and angry. 

  Soon after Martha joined the just-forming Resistance, and invested herself in fighting and putting a dent in the enemy- and soon it became obvious that she is an excellent sniper, both in skill and attitude. 

  Few even consider that before the war, Martha was ready to get her diploma for teaching high school children languages... 

 

f.yiannis  Father Yiannis 

  Age: 47 

  Languages: Greek 

  Father Yiannis was born and raised in Crete, but after he decided to join the ranks of the orthodox Christian clergy, he found himself serving in Athens well before the war broke out. He has good connections with every Cretan in Athens, and now with the Occupation, his primary concern is to keep as many children from dying as possible. 

 

 

 

orestes   Orestes 

   Age: 26 

   Languages: Greek, some English 

   Orestes is one of the ranked leaders of the Resistance. He was an engineer before the war, and also fought in the war until forced to capitulate to the Reich with the rest of his regiment. But like many of his compatriots, he refused to give up fighting. His opinions are strong and his actions always directed by them. 

 

 

 

rea   Rea 

   Age: 19 

   Another member of the resistance, Rea was a newlywed before she lost her husband in the Greo-Italian war. Offspring of a traditional family, she has been raised to be a good wife and mother for her husband.
