Character in The Dream-Leech. Father of Jason Atheling and brother of Bill Atheling. He was an artist producing covers for published such as DAW and ACE. Later he became a tenured professor of art at Mullencroft College in Pennsylvania. He became involved with Carl Szabo's Lakeside Theatre project to produce The King In Yellow (apparently based on Bill's copy of the play), producing the scenery. The actress Sue (presumably Susan Horne) was his lover. He presumably died in the fire that destroyed the theatre.
