Cal Leandros is [[HalfHumanHybrid half-human]], half [[TheFairfolk evil fairy.]] His mother got [[SonOfAWhore paid by the Auphe to produce a child]], and that's all she did. He was raised by his AloofBigBrother Niko ([[WiseBeyondTheirYears who was]] ''[[ImprobableAge four years old]]'' when he was [[PromotionToParent put in charge of a newborn]]), and Niko has spent [[ChildSoldiers his entire life protecting his brother]] and becoming a BadAss. They've also been [[SternChase on the run.]] At age fourteen, the Auphe caught Cal. He came back two days later, [[YearInsideHourOutside two years older]], with no memory of the EldritchAbomination that he'd seen.

** Niko's father, Kalakos, remarks that their bloodline is said to be descended from Achilles, an idea that Robin reaffirms by saying that Niko and Kalakos look like Achilles.

** Cal reciprocates the sentiment just as strongly. And considering he's slowly slipping into a [[SociopathicHero Sociopathic Type V]] AntiHero over the course of the series with Niko as his sole MoralityChain...the question isn't really ''if'' he kills you, but how much he'll make it hurt before he does so.
