Acheron. *wistful sigh* I can’t even explain how much I love the character Acheron. (I’ve loved him forever. Since Fantasy Lover and I discovered the old DH chatroom. Those were the days.) My fellow squires know how completely addicted I was to this series. I’ve loved our fearless, mysterious, and wonderful Ash—since first being introduced to him.
Ash is total sex-on-a-stick dressed as a badass Goth. Throughout 14 or more stories I was literally drawn to his character. I found myself craving every page that he was on and wanting to read more and more about him. Ash has this tough exterior, but is a caring, generous guy, and doesn’t expect anything from anyone.
You see, 11.000 years ago a god -this beloved character- was born. Cursed into the body of a human, Acheron spent a lifetime in shame while being terribly abused. However, his human death unleashed an unspeakable horror that almost destroyed Earth. Then -brought back-Ash became the sole defender of mankind. For centuries, he has fought for our survival and hidden a past he wants concealed.
