Dalton, 20, is a member of one of the older families – the Eckharts – one of only the three bloodlines that have been able to pass their abilities down through the generations.His forebears have had a seat on the council for the last 500 years, giving them high status and wealth within the order.
Dalton is a high functioning seer who has been working within the Protectorate – which his father is the chief prosecutor. Using his ability for the secret services has made him unpopular with many – who see his talents as wasted.
Dalton is arrogant and entitled, he was born in 1829 but has spent much of his teenage years near the present – as many of the young ones do. Like a rite of passage, they find the lure of the Chaos Frontier fascinating.
He is overbearing with others of his age, seeing himself as their unelected leader. Dalton believes that Caitlin belongs to him and cannot understand why she doesn’t reciprocate. He is also a Determinist with very strong views on the Order’s future, his ambitions are heavily influenced by his father and he dreams of one day taking his place on the High Council.
