Kazan Atrabiades is an Illyrian pirate. He rescured Phedre no Delaunay de Montreve from the waters surrounded La Dolorosa after her escape.

Kazan carries a blood-guilt from the accidental death of his brother Daroslav. The blood-guilt prevents him from going home to Epidauro. If he returns home, the kriavbhog will swallow his soul. When he arrives in Kriti he undergoes the ritual of thetalos to absolve him of this guilt. Phedre saves his life by joining him in the thetalos even though she has not gone through the initation rites.
