Colonel Aetos appears as a nice man who always greets Violet with joy. Violet is used to Colonel Aetos as he is Dain Aetos’s dad. Colonel Aetos is Lilith Sorrengail’s aid, hence always stationed together.

In Fourth Wing, Colonel Aetos inquires about a book Violet’s dad was studying in relation to the second Krovlan uprising and feathertails. Violet denies any knowledge of it.
