Idris is a member of the Silures tribes, and an expert with the long bow. He is always determined, and when he sets his mind to a task there is no turning him back. This often lands him in dangerous situations that he struggles to overcome. As Path of the Warrior begins we find him preparing for a rite of passage that will usher him into manhood and a place him upon the clan’s council. His enthusiasm lands him in a tight predicament and joins a series of unusual events that binds two races together and shapes his coming decision.

He has a fierce love for his sister Mari, and unswerving loyalty to his family. He values his father and mother’s teaching, as well as the practical insight they provide for his survival. Idris sees them as role models and they are at least partially responsible for his ultimate decision to follow the path of the warrior.
