A trusted friend of Basilus, Nosius was left behind on the doomed city in Barbarian Lands, and forced to fight his way back in a series of adventures known as the Stories of the Return. A clever and intelligent man, Nosius devised a series of tricks that ensured the enemy barbarians besieging the city believed it was occupied and defended even while the Calopene forces retreated to their ships to flee. However, in a storm that caught the ships, Nosius was lost overboard, and he awoke on an island ruled by a mighty nymph. So began a series of adventures gathering a crew from the men she had transformed into pigs for amusement, tricking a two-headed giant out of a ship, and evading a coven of harpies even as they said near their rocky island home. It took two decades all told, but Nosius returned home to his wife and son, and recorded his tales to be told forever. Always assured of his own heroism, Nosius never lacked for confidence, and though his pride got him in trouble more than once, he has always triumphed in the end.
