The Character of Paul Arient



Paul Arient thought he was living a quiet and relaxing life on the island of Malta in the centre of the Mediterranean.  A note pinned to his door set events in motion he had not even dreamed of, leading him to investigate an underground city beneath Valletta the capital of Malta in search of an old deposit box containing a secret so powerful that world organisations like the Catholic Church wished to keep buried.  


Unknown to Paul he begins to discover more about his family history through this experience.  He has always questioned his family origins.  On researching his own family history he learned that in the 16th century his family arrived in Ireland from France but after investigating for years, the trail in France kept throwing up blanks.  While in Malta running through the dark and vacant streets of an underground city he learns he is the descendant of Iulio Arientus, an Italian and leader of the Knights Templar and later a valued member of the Knights Hospitaller in the 14th century.


Paul’s Character


Paul has a quiet nature but his curiosity is wild, pushing him forward to learn and discover new things.  On finding the note pinned to his apartment door, it is his curiosity that brings him on an adventure opening his eyes to things he never dreamed of, even putting his own life in danger.  He now finds himself tasked with an incredible responsibility of protecting an ancient secret along with Adele, the elder of an ancient coven.  He questions his own strength and if he has what it takes to carry out this mission.  The life he once knew has been shattered, even his understanding of the world has been rocked to its core.  He continues forward unclear but curious about what lies ahead.
