Part one of my personal project, 'A Geek Tragedy'.
The focus of the project is to create a line-up of Greek-inspired demi gods who cling on to a glorious world of yore.
However, a plague of undeath is spreading and the age of heroes is fading fast.
Phaidros is a son of the trickster god Hermes and the concubine of an Egyptian Pharaoh. This initially landed him a life of wealth and luxury. However, when the truth of the matter came out, he was banished from his home and marked as a fugitive.
As a parting gift his mother granted him magical boots, an imitation of those of his god father.
Having to sell many of his prized belongings, steep to theft and, for a while, being treated as a slave, Phaidros travels the lands in a vain attempt to reclaim a life of freedom and luxury.
His goal is to find his father in Greece and demand the royal treatment that he believes to deserve as a demi god.
