Nathe, blonde haired Swordmaster of Catheridge, plays an important role in Lonsearth and the journey of Thais and Casperi. Nathe is a loyal servant to the House of Catheridge, a loyalty built upon from his father, Peter, who had died from a heart attack just a few years before our story begins.
Nathe’s father and Baron Archivy were good friends after the Baron saved Peter from drowning when he was injured during the final of Capture the Flag twenty-five summers before.
Peter had been struck in the head by a blade and fallen into the river that flowed through the valley. Archivy’s men were in a position of victory, but Archivy had sacrificed the win to save Peter.
Peter was a young swordsman in the House of Catheridge, following on his father, Erik, who had left the guard of the House of Vasa in his younger years to join the House of Catheridge. Movement of young soldiers between towns was not uncommon in hope of greater opportunities, and fifty summers before, Catheridge was still considered somewhat of an outpost when Erik arrived.
Nathe’s cousin, Norman, also served in the House of Catheridge Guard. Normans’ mother, Vinna, sister of Peter, works with her husband, a local baker in the village outside of the castle walls.
