Who is Athos?
The First Musketeer Series primarily centers around Athos, a young man escaping from a dramatic past. We meet him at his lowest point as he struggles to gather together the threads of his life and make a new future for himself.
Our Athos is a little different from the one we know from Dumas’ The Three Musketeers. He hasn’t yet grown into the wise leader we see in the novels. His journey is only just beginning and Athos must first overcome his demons before he can take on the role he plays in the stories we know.

Athos is one of my favorite characters (as well as Aramis). I think it’s a great idea, focusing the series on “young Athos.”
Athos is such a great character it makes creating a “backstory” plot for him very easy. And if you’re a fan of Aramis you’ll get to follow his story too.
