Nutus is the Jeddak of Dusar, and the father of Prince Astok. So unpleasant is this noble Jeddak, that not only was his suit refused by the princesses of all his neighboring cities, but no less than a dozen of his own noblewomen prefered suicide to life as his Jeddara. But he is certainly more pragmatic than his hotheaded son; when the Princess Thuvia was kidnapped, he warned Astok that he would not allow anything to tie Dusar to the kidnapping.
