|“||You tell us that we must be eliminated for the peace of the world, and that were are the problems- Yet here you are attempting to start another war because of one's abilities.. Fighting to protect this world..? Like hell you are.||„|
|~ Arctaius Corde-To Prasong Chutimant|
|“||You do this for Vengeance? If so, I suggest you quit while you're ahead. Attempts at revenge will usually breed more revenge. I've seen it happen more than 4 times. With an old enemy of mine, when I killed his father for my revenge, he went after me, and killed a family member in the process. My focus shifted, as I now wanted revenge on him. We didn't stop our attempts until his death. Or a friend of mine, who joined our cause after he figured out a leader within our enemies ranks destroyed his clan. Or yet again with a third, who killed our enemy, and brought his son into it.Eventually, this net of anger continues to grow due to the actions of a few... Until even those not involved in the first place are dragged within.I'm no Saint, I'll give you that. But I've lived long enough to tell you that much.||„|

|~ Arctaius Corde|
Arctaius Corde Is the Main protagonist of the Tides Of Protomis Series.
Arctaius works with a group with 3 other proto-Humans of a similar age, who all share the fast development that he does. All of them are mostly interested in getting revenge for their families- Who have been killed by the group which is the focus of the first arc.
Corde was born on March 20th of 2001. He was both born in, and resided in a suburb of Philadelphia. He was the son of Ajax Corde. A descendent of an ancient line of proto-Humans. As a child, the boy was relatively strange. Showing much more interest in things like war tactics, or history then socialization with other children. He was noted to have been much similar to both his father and grandfather. Two which had in the past been renowned tacticians. Although, He still had friends, one of such being Valerie Wilson. And he still had a normal life, the very least, Until the rebellion began.
One that one fateful day, Corde's life took a turn for the worst. The Amerikanisches Reich, of penzen descendants in the NAF, angered at the declaration of war on Penzenheim, and support of delmenforde. The Reich had begun to make rounds, around the time the boy was 8. Having cells all over the country assaulting the Districts. They began to take hold of the southeast district. Pushing out from the city of Roanoke. The district where Arctaius and his family were living following moving from Philadelphia in 2003. As attacks led by the Kaemerge and Reich continued, many people were killed;Including much of his family. One one peaceful night, while he was with his mother's side of the family, who, notably, had no proto-humans, the Reich strikes at the town they lived in. Corde's mother was killed in the crossfire. With much of the rest of the Corde family killed as well, the stronger members being targeted by other proto humans. Within this time frame, Much to father's dismay, Arctaius' proto-human abilities activated. The one thing Ajax did not want, As he wished for his son to have a much more normal and peaceful life then he did. Though he would not have much to lament . As he faced the leader of the Kaemerge in battle with Cyamus Corde- His father, And arctaius's Grandfather. In order to allow his son, and his nephew Mars Corde. to escape the area. While this worked, The two were killed in battle. The young corde knew of this. And he was angered, Looking towards the unknown men and this so called Reich as the cause. While he was scared at that time. He knew that the only way he and the last member of his family would survive is if he fought. Eventually, this goal which was initially survival, would turn into Vengeance.
Corde The Agium
Following these events, Corde spent much of his time on the battlefield. Constantly battling the Reich militias throughout the fractured States. Destroying supply lines, Encamoents, Weakening Leadership, ETC. His cousin Mars, did not fight, as his Proto-human Abilities were significantly weaker. The two had differing opinions on arctaius' fighting, as Mars simply wanted to escape and live peacefully. Though he would stay out of concern for his cousin. His identity was unknown through this time. So he was called "Agium" Colloquially. A concept from the religion of an extinct people group known as the Rufal. literally meaning “Vengeful Spirit”. His actions overall made the Reich fall quicker. However, he came to meet an enemy that distracted him from his own fights against the Reich. After the battle of Cahokia, Corde would fight against the forces of Lt.Col Heinrich, a famed general within the Reich, even complimented by his opponents. Corde would go directly for Lt. Col Heinrich in an attempt to end his life. He would succeed, but his son, Sebastian Heinrich, was there watching. Heinrich would vow to get revenge. Later, when he approached a Reich base on Lake superior, he was stopped by one he recognized as the son of Lt. Col Heinrich. It was at this first battle that he would make his deceleration. The fight ended in a draw, with arctaius dragged away by Mars.
As he wandered, however- he continued to meet his equal, who would take the name Kyuem, Known as the Kyuem, a spirit too which combats an agium in Rufal Mythology). The two would continue to fight- the hate between the two becoming ever more bitter. However, it would all come to a breaking point when Sebastian declared that he would give Corde the very same pain he felt, before killing Mars Corde. This fight was especially fierce, with arctaius nearly killing Sebastian, had it not been for his quick thinking.
Corde would temporarily stop his attacks, as he began to search for traces of Sebastian. Until he weighed his options, and decided that there was still a larger problem. He even made it to the battle of Roanoke- The De-facto capital of Frost's forces. He was stopped from entering the battle for quiet a while, as he was intercepted in what he THOUGHT was the final battle between him and Heinrich, as he believed the other had died. There he almost killed the self proclaimed fuhrer, Nolan Frost. Nolan, However escaped, Going further west with his convoy in order to escape to russia. While he was there, he gained acknowledgment from the Federation government due to his actions.
Though he could have stopped there. He made the decision to pursue Frost. Theorizing that he may try to escape to Russia,Having seen his armies use Russian arms. Traveling from Roanoke to Sacramento after tracking frost's movements. In early 2009, The convoy was intercepted by corde on one of the many overpasses covering the city. Though he had eliminated frost's personal guard, he was still prepared, as he moved to escape. This was stopped by Taiki Watanabe, And And Tsumotsu Koeda of the special ops force,The Silver Lions. Much to the chagrin of Arctaius, who wanted to kill frost himself. In order to calm him, Watanabe gave him a proposition: go to the ones who helped the Reich rise in the first place. Corde would accept, and the two decided to take the young boy back to Yamato with them. When he first entered, he was initially ignored because of his rather aggressive nature. Which would continue to be A theme, but there were 3 boys, Yudei saski, Akashi Ketamura, and Shinto Yoshida, who grouped around him regardless. The four became quick friends, and would continue to be so toward the start of the series. This was also around the time he would meet Asami Hoshi (As seen in II, a short time after he arrived in Yamato)
Arctaius has since settled into Yamato, Knowing the language fluently. Through the years he was in and out of home. Going to go join Taiki in his missions with the other silver Lions members. Though this became much less frequent after the end of WW3 in 2013. The man is now a delinquent. One in which will go across town for just one fight. It is not uncommon for Sasaki, Yoshida, And Ketamura to go and see him fight. However, he will make sure his friends do not follow him in the event to which he battles another delinquent who happens to also be a Proto-human. His name, Jirou Hashimoto. The two of which have battled each other many times over the years, and have come to a draw in most of these battles. Essentially cultivating a rivalry between the two. Both of the two being prominent fighters in the Tokyo underworld. They both Belong to the group known as the 10 demon pillars. The strongest fighters in Tokyo. Along with his demon pillar status, however- he has gained the title "Emperor Of the North". As he will sometimes help others from north Shīma high to battle other schools. As seen in volume 30- against Yama academy
With help from Watanabe, Corde is able to gain money for his living expenses. He lives in a one bedroom apartment in the Shīma ward of Tokyo. Although he is the only one living in his apartment, It's not uncommon for one of the Silver Lion members to show up at his home, as they have become familiar with him, much to his chagrin.
Arctaius ' personality is known to be greatly influenced by Taiki Watanabe. He is known to be blunt, ill-mannered, and relatively uncaring. As one would see by his Delinquency, he has little to no respect for authority. Although, he does care for those close enough to him.
In battle, arctaius isn't much different than he is outside- uncaring about things like Fairness, and pride, he is ruthless- and will kill his opponent with little to no hesitation.
Arctaius is a dark Skinned Man- With Wild black hair and dark brown eyes. Arctaius is at an average height for his age- though slightly above average at 5'10. However- He has a comparatively large amount of muscle- due to the large amount of training he has done, Combined with the protomis particles to which have largely fused with his muscles. He commonly wears a dark orange jacket with black sleeves-With a chain running from his jacket into his pocket. Along with Some sort of white silk being wrapped around his upper chest. Possibly to hide the large scar on said chest-- Though the reason is unknown, and is simply thought to be his own choice.
