Kassandra is one of the main characters of the book. She's known as Misthios . She's the granddaughter of the King Leonidas of Sparta. Despite being raised by the husband of her mother Nikolaos, she was actually the biological daughter of Pythagoras. Sounds familiar? She became the mother of Elpidios. When she was young, The Oracle of Apollo said that the brother of Kassandra (Alexios) would cause the fall of Sparta, so the 2 kids (Kassandra and Alexios) were thrown off the mountain. However, Kassandra survived it and started a new life. She fled to the open seas and by a storm, her boat went overboard. She woke up at the beach of Kephallonia and was greeted by Markos, who later took care of her. Later she became a Misthios. Sometimes, thugs would come to demand money on order of the Cycops, that are living on the same island. Later, Kassandra killed all of the cyclops.
Alexios is the brother of Kassandra and is also one of the main characters in the book. When he was young, the The Oracle of Apollo predicted that he would cause the fall of Sparta. In order to prevent that, he and his sister were thrown off a mountain, but both of them survived. Alexios was taken by The Cult of Kosmos, because of his blood and because he has the blood of Isu. As a baby he was seperated from his family by the Cult and used as weapon called Deimos. Eventually, Kassandra tries to dismantle the influence of the Cult across Greece and at that moment, she was reunited again with her brother. Alexios or Deimos thought he was a demigod because of his blood connection to Isu. "Deimos" was very agressive and had no emphaty for anyone and always had the purpose of blood and warfare. He became so intimidating that the Cult feared him for his unpredictable behaviour. But later on, the brainwashing of the Cult that was done on Alexios, breaks because Kassandra reminds him of their shared bloodline with King Leonidas.
