Lysias is a privateer who sails beneath an Alhambran flag, and is known by pirates who haunt the shores of Irem Zhat al Imad as the Black Dog of the Sea. He's been occasionally known to introduce himself as a Chantris, although he's not been seen in Amber much, if at all, in the past few centuries.

He's been known to spend time in Weirmonken.

Personal History

One night, centuries ago, Lord Seius Chantris celebrated a particularly spectacular victory on the seas, and spent an inebriated night in the arms of the most beautiful women he had ever seen. The next morning, he and the woman shared an embarrassed breakfast, and then went their separate ways.

Several years later, a woman showed up on his door, with a small child in tow. A birthmark declared his parentage without a doubt, and Seius was unable to deny the child was his. The woman vanished again, never to be seen again, leaving Lysias to be raised by his somewhat reluctant father.

Lysias was a bit of a wild child, constantly in need of reprimands and reminders of proper noble behavior. No one was surprised when he ran off to sea and shipped out of Amber at an early age. He has recently returned, taking up quarters in the Alhambran embassy.


Lysias walks with the rolling gait of a man of the sea. The planes of his face are smooth-shaven, lending him the appearance of being in mid twenties, and roughened by days on the open deck. Fine brows arch over eyes of clear crystal blue. His hair shines ebony, and is tied neatly with a yellow velvet ribbon. His smile is quick and easy, as is his laugh.

If his gait weren't enough, this man dresses in the manner of a pirate. White laced shirt, black coat edged with gold brocade, matching tri-corner hat (complete with feather), folded boots with a tucked in dagger, and a cutlass strapped to his side. Two thin golden hoops have pierced the lobe of his left ear, and three matching cuffs are on the upper curve of his right.
