Codex Alera Wiki

Kord’s eldest son, Aric is a windcrafter of some skill, but does not have the skill or power to fly.

Furies of Calderon[]

Aric arrives at Bernardholt with his father and brother, as Bittan is accused of raping Warner’s daughter, Heddy. In the assault against the holders gathered at Bernardholt, Aric nearly suffocates Isana with his windcrafting. He flees with Kord and Bittan, heading off Tavi and Fade at the Rillwater, where Bittan is killed and Kord takes Odiana and Isana captive. At Kordholt, Aric is Isana and Odiana’s keeper, and it is revealed that Bittan did not rape Warner’s daughter—it was Aric who had been with Heddy, of a mutual accord. Due to his father’s death at Second Calderon, Aric becomes a Steadholder.

Academ's Fury[]

Aric visits Isanaholt in Academ's Fury to ask for advice about disappearances in Aricholt, leading to the conclusion that the Vord nest is nearby. Aric leaves for his steadholt early to prepare for the expedition's arrival, but is missing when they arrive and later attacks the expedition with other vord Taken.
