(Note: As a child of Themis, they can tell truth from lies)
Fear and destructiveness are the major emotional sources of fascism, eros belongs mainly to democracy.
Generally he is all about politics, truth and justice. That may seem odd that he's going up against the gods, but he sees them as a blight in the 21st century where the goal is freedom, democracy, and fairness for all. He's very diplomatic, very serious, and not the kind that parties or does anything without carefully thinking it through. He's very OCD about order, cleanliness and organisation.
Aside from planning, recruiting, sending people out on missions, he hasn't done much since joining the BC. He did most recently recruit an old childhood friend of his and the guy's daughter, Kendrick Treharne and his daughter Hermione Treharne. Though James is most definitely his right hand, and there's only one lt per faction, he considers Kendrick his left hand, especially when James is out on missions.
Lionel Fitzgerald Astor
12 November 1980
English Latin Greek
Lionel and James Astor were born to William Nicholas Astor and Themis. Lionel was born in 1980, the product of an affair, William met Themis during his career as a lawyer, and at the time he believed Themis to be just another law student working their way up the ranks. She was beautiful, intelligent and had a passion for law, everything William lacked from his wife at home. After Lionel's birth Themis brought him to William to be raised as one of his own. At that point William and his wife had been unable to conceive so he passed Lionel off as an adopted son, hiding the truth of the affair. In 1984, William once again ran into Themis, and the old sparks were quickly rekindled resulting in yet another pregnancy, this time however his wife had managed to bear them a child, and suspecting he was running around on her, had hired a private investigator to follow William around.
This time when Themis showed up with another child, William tried to refuse to take him, insisting there was no way he could get away with it, with his marriage intact. Themis was irate and finally told William the truth about being a Greek goddess and that she couldn't raise him herself as it was against the rules. William laughed, finding the rules to be awfully petty and short sighted, seeing Themis angry however did not settle well with him, and Themis forced him (by making a rule that he would have to follow) to take their second son, but at the same time promised she would never see William again.
After a few years the impact of the affair had quieted down, and his wife accepted the child as if he was always hers. The boys grew up wanting for nothing, and were pushed towards law and politics. At the age of 12 Lionel had his first hellhound attack while at school, and William reluctantly agreed to allow Lionel to attend camp during the summers, a couple of years later his younger brother accompanying him. For the five summers they spent at camp, they were both shocked and annoyed at how petty the gods could be, especially when the war broke out. By the time the boys were through college they stopped attending camp and started spending most of their time in the mortal world. Lionel immersed himself in the law and politics, whereas James was a bit more military minded.
For years they did their own thing, and for years they dodged monster attacks and after a while even started ignoring dreams and requests from Themis to do tasks for her. After a while they started formulating their own ideas of how the Greek gods and goddesses should run Olympus, and upon being introduced to Heinrich, they finally found an outlet for their ideas, and together lead the newest faction in the Broken Covenant, Civitas Popularis.

General & Misc Info
Sycophancy toward those who hold power is a fact in every regime, and especially in a democracy, where, unlike tyranny, there is an accepted principle of legitimacy that breaks the inner will to resist. ... Flattery of the people and incapacity to resist public opinion are the democratic vices, particularly among writers, artists, journalists and anyone else who is dependent on an audience.

All deductions having been made, democracy has done less harm, and more good, than any other form of government. It gave to human existence a zest and camaraderie that outweighed its pitfalls and defects. It gave to thought and science and enterprise the freedom essential to their operation and growth. It broke down the walls of privilege and class, and in each generation it raised up ability from every rank and place.
