Liontari is a character in Children of the Whales. He is an apátheia soldier of the Allied Empire known for his emotional instability.


Liontari has tan skin, bright pink shoulder-length hair and yellow cat-like eyes. His first outfit consists of a silver coat with purple sleeves and white cuffs, with a green long-sleeved shirt underneath. There is a small knife hung around his waist with a belt. He also wears a pair of dark brown knee-high boots tied with thin red and golden-brown ropes.


Liontari, despite being an apátheia soldier, is shown to have plenty of emotions. He seemingly takes joy in slaughter and bloodshed.


When Liontari made his first pilgrimage to a Nous to drain himself of emotions as a child, something went wrong. He stated that something flowed into him, and he could see the hearts of others. He was ostracized by other children for experiencing these emotions, and at one point jumped out of a window to get away. He suffered injuries, but survived. After that, he was further ostracized by his family for bringing shame to them, and his personality began to become more twisted. Sometime before the start of the series, he and Lykos lived in the same city, and were apparently friends. After that, he flunked out of the military academy due to his incompatibility with the Nous, and was transferred through multiple military units until he wound up in the Falaina extermination unit.[1]

Plot Edit

Liontari is part of the Falaina Extermination unit led by Lykos' brother, Orca, and is present during the first attack. He revels in the slaughter, attempting to kill Chakuro before Lykos stops him. After the first wave retreats, he talks to Orca.

Liontari returns to the Mud Whale during the second attack by the ship Skylos. He kills Hakuji after he falls from the tower, and attacks Suou. However, before Liontari can kill Suou, he is stopped by Shuan. The two fight, Liontari is grievously wounded by Shuan. He then crawls away, and is shot with arrows by children of the Mud Whale. He then falls off the ship and into the sea of sand.

Later, he appears in Orca's quarters. It is revealed that Aíma saved him for some reason, which was how he was able to survive. He desperately wishes to go back to the Mud Whale, and Orca tells him that he can, so long as he becomes his jester.


Lykos Edit

He was childhood friends with Lykos.


Trivia Edit

  • His name comes from λιοντάρι, the Greek word for lion.
