Atridians arrived from the west during the First Age as traders with the Kel. Eventually, they established permanent trading posts and cities, drove out or assimilated most of the Kel settlements in the area, and truly became their own culture. All ties with whatever culture they came from were broken during the Age of War. With them, they brought their gods that they worship til this day – the gods of the Greek Pantheon.
As appearances go, Atridians are of average height and weight. Their hair is blonde, brown, or black and their eyes are gray, green, blue, or brown. Their skin is darker than other human ethnicities. Most noticeably, Atridians tend to be fastidious about their appearance. They are well groomed, bathe regularly, and prefer colorful and stylish clothes.
In personality, Atridians have a predisposition towards two things – fine living and money. Atridians tend to love fancy dinners, fine wine, and luxurious living in general. They are also naturally gifted, in general, with a quick wit, social grace, and ability to spot an opportunity for profit. Atridians also seem to be talkers, and suckers for good conversation.
