Ataidas Shirinsud (Ah-tay-dahs Sheer-en-sood)
Ataidas is a human who was celebrating in Gharob when the earthquake struck, sending her down into the Mushroom Seam. She landed in the river, surviving the impact, and swam ashore. She now travels with the group of survivors as they search for an exit.
Ataidas is adventurous and curious by nature. She can be a bit of a loudmouth and has a wild nature. She is quite intelligent, though she has little schooling. She rarely visits the Temples, but when she does she tends to have the closest affinity to Liberias.Throughout their time with her, Ataidas has been more of a loner and taken care of herself. She’s shown herself as brave and curious, to the chagrin of some of the other survivors.
Ataidas was born to a local cartographer and his wife, and has two older brothers. Her father is not an explorer himself, copying and illustrating maps instead. Her maternal grandfather was a successful member of the Longstriders, and was well-known for his expeditions into Latiyet. Ataidas is also a junior member of the Longstriders, though she has not yet received full membership as she’s not taken part in any expeditions.<br><br>She is engaged to Mairas Dilnab, a member of the Longstriders in full-standing, yet she refuses to marry him until she’s a member as well so that they may be equals.
