Atin: The Servant of Pyrochles in The Faerie Queene

Last updated:

Atin is a minor character that appears in book 2 of Edmund Spenser’s The Faerie Queene.

He is a servant of Pyrocles, and he announces his master to Sir Guyon and Phaon, and also briefly attacks Guyon as well.

We later see him at the Idle Lake, where he is reunited with his master and consults with Archimago.
