Assassin for the Unseelie King
|“||I am Airmed, son of Mannan. We are the children of a god, you see. We are much older than the Wild Hunt, and much more powerful.||”|
Airmed is a son of Mannan and has lived almost since the beginning of time. He is much older than the Wild Hunt, and much more powerful. In the old days he hunted giants and monsters with his siblings, but chose to serve the Unseelie King as one of his assassins.
In 2012, Airmed and his siblings were sent after the Blackthorn family to retrieve the Black Volume of the Dead for the Unseelie King. Airmed went after Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn in Cornwall, along with Delan, Ethna and Fal.
Alongside his siblings Airmed fought Emma and Julian until Emma killed Fal with her sword Cortana. Airmed viciously attacked Emma after she killed Fal but was stopped by Julian. Beaten, he used his magic to call the Riders' flying steeds and they retreated.
He later attacked the Blackthorns in London, using a human child to lure them out of the Institute. He and his siblings almost succeeded in killing the Blackthorns until Annabel Blackthorn arrived and drove them away by threatening to reveal the Unseelie King's name.
As an ancient and powerful faerie Airmed is very confident in his power and proud of his heritage. He is loyal to the Unseelie King, and to his siblings, and disdainful of his enemies.
Airmed is very tall with a sharply chiseled jaw and bronze hair that resembles metallic thread woven into a thick braid that hangs halfway down his back. He wears a bronze half mask as well as bronze armor etched all over with designs of waves and the sea.
- Longevity: As a Rider of Mannan, Airmed is very old and has been alive for thousands of years.
- Magic: Airmed possesses magic that allows him to summon his steed.
- Enhanced Strength/Speed: Airmed is able to move incredibly fast and deal heavy blows.

In Irish mythology Airmed was a goddess and a part of the Tuatha Dé Danann, a race of supernatural beings.
- As a Rider, Airmed is wild magic and can lie despite being a faerie.
