Background

The Pavilidis family arrived in Australia in 1950, as part of the great exodus from Europe following the Second World War. Migrant workers were needed in Australia and George Pavilidis and his three brothers signed up to work on the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme: an ambitious undertaking to harness the energy of one of Australia's mightiest rivers. George had never been out of Greece prior to his migration, although he had fought on the borders against the Italians during the War.

Demetrious was born twenty eight years later, the grandson of George, and heir to the accumulated wealth and power of the Pavilidis family who had worked hard and invested wisely over the past two decades. Pavilidis Pharmaceuticals was an international company based in Melbourne, Victoria, and was renowned equally for its quality products as for its CEOs philanthropy. When Aleks Pavilidis and his wife, Katrina, were kidnapped by a disgruntled ex-employee, the police were unable to secure their release and, in the eyes of their son Demetrious, contributed to their deaths.

Demetrious was nineteen when he took control of his family's estate in 1998 and had to immediately stave off a hostile take over bid from a rival company. Although he managed to retain most of the company's assets, he had to sacrifice 25% of its holdings. The media predicted a quick demise for the company, but Demetrious managed to overcome the obstacles and pull it through the hard times. Throughout this time he was fully engaged with trying to keep the company afloat, but after things settled and the company began to return healthy profits, Demetrious turned his attention back to the details of his parents' death. The police were unable to locate the kidnapper and had shelved the case. Demetrious began his own investigation, hiring the services of Reddy, Willing and Abel.

It was soon discovered that the case was not as straight forward as first thought.

The kidnapper was not human.

Demetrious and the investigators tracked the kidnapper to The Hecate Club and, more specifically, to Hecate herself. Demetrious had known about the uberhumans, but had no idea about the world of magic and other dimensions, so when he met the sorceress-club owner, he was sceptical. Hecate saw something in Demetrious and agreed to help, which was unusual for her. She showed them the Portal which led to a person's heart's desire. With an amused smile she watched Demetrious walk through.

Beyond the Portal was a place he had never seen before, let alone imagined. Demetrious didn't realise it, but he had arrived in Olympus, the home of the Greek Pantheon of Gods. Hecate called to him, filling him with memories of his parents, of their deaths and of the man who was responsible. Suddenly Demetrious was aware of an ancient curse upon his family.

Generations earlier, Nemesis, the messenger of Justice and Retribution, had been offended by the Pavilidis family. She had dispatched the entire family except for one man in the 1700s so as to allow them to make amends. On an appointed date, she returned, and as the family had forgotten its curse and was not prepared, Nemesis took the Pavilidis family again.

She had overlooked Demetrious.

He confronted her in her home and was summarily rebuked and thrust back forcefully through the Portal into the Hecate Club. Hecate found him, close to death, and tended to his wounds. As he lay recovering, feeling like he had failed his family, Hecate told him stories of the Ancient Greeks, of the divine nature of Nemesis, and how he could never hope to avenge his parents. She told him that his father had paid the price for not listening to this forefathers.

Demetrious had no alternative but to agree, but Hecate also told him that Nemesis had turned her attention to the world again, and had plans to upset the balance of things. She hinted that he might be able to strike at the goddess through her agents, spoiling her plans before fruition. With her mischievous smile, Hecate presented Demetrious with a slender bow and a dream of justice of his own.

She called him Eros, and for a time, they shared their lives and loves until the time when Hecate turned away from him. He knew it was coming and they parted on good terms, the sexual tension between them still obvious. Demetrious, as Eros, launched his assault on the hidden plans of Nemesis. He pursued her through his business empire as well as his vigilante activities.

When he crossed paths with the master thief, Marjorie Door, Demetrious was brought before Queen Bee and the rest of the International House of Crime. Marjorie Door had been impressed with his thieving abilities, and Queen Bee agreed that his skills would be valuable, especially after the recent demise of their previous Australian representative. Demetrious was amused by the idea of an elite club of master thieves, and joined in order to consolidate his own fortunes as well as utilise the combined information services of the other members.

Personality

Demetrious is determined to avenge his parents' death, but as the one responsible is a goddess, he realises that any direct attack will be useless. Instead, he relies on information he gains through the International House Of Crime and The Hecate Club to uncover Nemesis' plans and stop them before they achieve their goal.

As one of Melbourne's Most Eligible Bachelors, Demetrious is also a very social creature, able to move with confidence in any social situation. He wields a formidable business empire as well as a keen strategic mind.

Although their relationship is over, Demetrious is still in love with Hecate and maintains a very close friendship.

Quote

“You work for the Goddess of Retribution, but she's not here right now, and the only one handing out retribution tonight will be me.”

Powers

Eros is a highly determined and skilled human, who employs a powerful bow with a variety of arrows. He is an accomplished martial artist and business leader.

Appearance

Demetrious Pavilidis is a handsome Greek man who is in peak condition through regular training in martial arts and strategy simulations. He is one of the richest men in Melbourne, and arguably the Most Eligible Bachelor, and with that status Demetrious always wears expensive and tailored clothing. As Eros, he wears a simple black t-shirt concealing an armoured vest and carries a bow over his shoulder in a case next to his quiver of arrows.
