Character Summary Edit
Cyr is a supporting character in the Chronicles of Wrath and arguably the most powerful character in the entire Estate, though this remains secret throughout most of the books and is only revealed in part near the end. He occupies a managerial position in the pantheon of deities and it is unknown whom he answers to.
Cyr's personality is largely mysterious, though he displays a fair amount of loyalty to his friends and understanding of their situation. At first, he is generally silent, almost unnoticeable, and remains easily forgettable during the first half of the series, though he takes on a more prominent and human role when viewed by Cam and Tate, his best friends and the fourth and fifth protagonists in the Chronicles.
While Cyr is socially distanced and extraordinarily reserved (he goes so far as to not use contractions like "don't" and "can't" because he finds them too casual), it is implied that he has played other parts during his immortal lifetime and that this is only one in perhaps dozens or hundreds of people he has become.
He cares a lot more for Wrath than he has for many humans, though he does not bend the rules of the universe to resurrect Faye, which implies a fair amount of morality on his part despite the fact that she was a close friend; Cyr does not believe himself to be above the rules.
He is a compassionate person as far as someone in his profession can be, and refrains from looking down on humans or those of lesser power than his own. He tries to use his abilities for good, though his attempts are sometimes foiled by his philosophy of "doing what needs to be done."
He has a strong hatred of bureaucracy, which is why he runs one.
Cyr's appearance varies between incarnations (as does his name, personality, and practically everything about him except his status as a god), but his current one is of roughly average height and an extremely old-fashioned demeanor. He dresses in all black because he believes it has style, wears reading glasses regularly, and braids his hair back once it grows out too long to be kept out of his face otherwise. He is pale, bordering on translucent, and carries a book with him. He is raceless, as he varies between incarnations, but modeled his current incarnation off of "Cyr," who he imagined as part-Taiwanese, part-British, and as an earth caliber. He is never seen without his book, is moderately attractive, and speaks with a bit of a lilt to his words.
- God abilities - Cyr's powers are never fully explained, but it's assumed that, as the Manager God of the Estate, he has the ability to manipulate time and space itself, and change the fabric of reality within the Estate. He is likely all-powerful when it comes to that sphere of influence, though he follows the laws he lays down precisely and without fail, even when his emotions would fell a lesser person's self-control.

- Krav Maga, or a like martial art
- Basic weapons training
