Atul is a Spirit Character in Spiritfarer. He was introduced with the early Alpha Build of the game and can be seen in action in the Spiritfarer Demo on gog. As stubborn as he is joyful, Atul is very handy, loves water and would never pass up a good meal. Being on this boat with all of his fellow passengers really makes him miss his family, but it doesn't get him down too often.
Stella’s paternal uncle, he imigrated to northeastern France at the same time as Stella and her parents, before they settled a decade later across the Atlantic Ocean.
As a true handyman, he occupied various technical functions in many construction fields until he found his true vocation: union leader, fighting for the rights of disparaged workers.
Atul took great pride in teaching Stella all he could about life’s little things, from fishing to cooking, to simply sitting and enjoying the sunset.
As cheerful and petulant as could be, Atul hid an emotional hole that unfortunately could not be filled, regardless of all the love he received, no matter how sensational the gourmet food he ate was.
While Stella was still in Europe in her early twenties, Atul disappeared without a trace. This was a great shock to Stella, and she never truly learned what had happened to him. His disappearance was one of the reasons Stella decided to move to North America with her mother, Marie, and her second sister, Lilly.
