Theokoles' Mother is a Greek woman who gave birth to the man who soon became known as the Shadow of Death.

Character Outline[]

Living in a village in Greece, the unnamed mother lived an everyday life until the birth of her son. Theokoles was so large at birth however, he crippled her.

Despite this, she loved her son and called him a gift from the gods. She was one of the few people to accept him and never once turned away from him, which showed how caring she was to him.


Theokoles' Mother was a curvy woman with long red hair that reached her lower back.

The Shadow of Death[]

After the birth of her son, she was unable to work due to being crippled by his birth. She continued to breast feed him to help him grow. Her feeding him literally sucked the life she had left out of her. Before her death, she told him her life now flowed through his veins, and to honor this gift by never dying.

Theokoles buries his mother.

Theokoles buries her next to his father, and continued to work at the farm as he grew up. He ultimately left the farm after the death of his lover Karina, whom he buries next to her.
