Friends & family of Athus Nadorian aka Brian Dyer

Friends & family of Athus Nadorian aka Brian Dyer,

On Tuesday the 11th of October 2011, Athus was involved in a severe car collision that ended his time here with us. The 29 years of his life were filled with amazing stories, incredible adventures and outstanding creativity and talent. He shared his love of life, affection for others and sense of humor with many wonderful people.

In memory of Athus and his special life, his closest kin have created this site for others to share their experiences with Athus as well as share photos and artwork. An email address has been established to send your wishes in to be posted on this site athus@athusnadorian.com.

Thank you for your kind words, love and support through all of this. Remember to love life, hold your friends close and have a little fun – Athus wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

-Friends and Family

We have established a Paypal donation button below for those who wish to donate to Narse and Sarmy’s medical expenses, and Athus’s final expenses. Thank you.

  • Kota tiger says:

    Ones work in this realm is never really done..The storys, ideas and visions that one may spread will go on. This is why he will never be forgotten…He will be remembered..

  • Nyck says:

    I am sorry narse. I barely knew him but have been a fan of yours for a while. I know it’s not much but I got Type 1 diabetes earlier this summer and I struggled with it, and still sometimes do, but I am just trying to provide some sympathy. I am sorry I can’t donate. May the wind be ever under your wings Athus. I am sorry…..

  • Nikanor says:

    These words are stones in my heart…

    I’ve only heard of you, when you left.

    I tried to say something, but I couldn’t put myself up to do it this month.

    I want to let you know, that after the day you departed. I started to look at your community, pieces of art, stories, entries and comments.

    I like you, I wish I’ve got to know you better Athus. Or atleast exchanged a few words.
    Hope I’ll see you back in the seas.

    From a newly awakened,
    Eastern SeaDragon.

    Rest in Peace.

    Nikanor.

    Love transendes beyond the people you meet in person and the people that you never meet at all. THough I have never meet him, never seen him, hugged him, held him, or touched him I still love him all the same.

    I never really got the chance to know you all that well Athus, but when I heard the news I felt compelled to at least put something together. Rest in peace man!

  • He-Man! says:

    I dind’t know Athus, but my girlfriend Jill loved his work. She died in late September this year. Athus was Jill’s absolute favorite fur artist (next to Narse and Tojo), and I remember her through their artwork. When Jill died I felt a huge chunk of myself die inside, and with Athus gone I feel like there’s almost nothing left. I hope you rest in peace Athus, and know you were (and always will be) loved by family, friends, and anon’s like me.
    Narse I hope you get through this. Your not the only one hurting, and your certainly not alone.

  • Napthali says:

    I will always remember your smile, your voice, and your good heart. Glad you were part of our lives, Athus, even for just a little while.

  • Dustin says:

    I’m terribly sorry to hear about Athus’ passing, and I hope his family and close friends can persevere through this. I say close friends, because Athus semmed like the type of guy who considered all his friends close to heart.

  • Omega the wolfcub says:

    I wish you eternal peace and happiness Athus and know that you are in a better place.

    Never forget Narse that when you love someone they are never truly gone, they will remain with you in your heart always and forever.

    Brian, we miss you

  • Panthea says:

    I may have not known him but for his loss i have made a poem

    Your Final Flight

    Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free,
    I’m following the path God laid for me.
    I took his hand when I heard his call,
    I turned my back and left it all.

    I could not stay another day,
    To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
    Tasks left undone must stay that way,
    I’ve found that peace at the end of the day.

    If my parting has left a void,
    Then fill it with remembered joy.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
    Ah, yes, these things too I will miss.

    Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
    I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
    My Life’s been full, I savoured much,
    Good friends, good times, a loved one’ touch.

    Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
    Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
    Lift up your heart and share with me,
    God wanted me now, He set me free.

  • Kalith the Otter says:

    Though our bodies may age,
    may turn to dust with time.
    Our spirits live on forever,
    In a realm ripe for imagination.

    Our spirits live on in our family,
    in our friends and loved ones.
    They carry our memory forever,
    and hold us close to their hearts.

    So even if I’ve gone to ash,
    or even gone to stone.
    Just remember I’m always with you,
    no matter where you go.

    So please stay strong,
    and please stay aware.
    That the slight breeze that brushes your muzzle,
    the warmth that kisses your cheek at night.

    That warmth is me, telling you to always remember me, and know I am always with you

    I may not have known you, but to me, you are family, and will be forever
    R.I.P

  • Muric says:

    I feel really bad about Athus, I have had family members die from car crashes before to and its really hard to get ovre. Just remember that Athus, is now flying in the stars above watching over us. And I’ll be honored when my time comes that I’ll be able to fly with him.

  • Drake Wingfire says:

    Like many I was always and admirer of your art work, you were one of the dragons I aspired to be in that regard. In all my years in the fandom I have unfortunately seen the passing of a good few, but when I had heard of yours it hit me with more of an emotional weight, the loss of a kin is always an unfortunate event and I find myself wishing I had made an attempt to talk to you. I have heard all the lovely stories of you, warm, kind memory’s from furries and otherkin alike. There was something about this that helped me overcome a wall in my own draconic spirituality that had kept me more or less hidden for nearly a decade out of fear of looking strange or becoming an outcast, you showed me how one can have that deeper identity and spirituality, keeping it close to heart and yet also be a nice, social and open dragon, it helped me re-establish a harmony in my own spiritual identity and for everything its worth, I want to thank you.

    Rest in peace fellow dragon, may you fly free and proceed to touch the hearts of others like you have, in your next life.

  • Vas Vadum says:

    It’s been almost 1 year now, and I still remember Athus. The memory still hurts too. :/

  • Synge Embyr says:

    *places some flowers and sea shells on this page and sits down, her ears standing up as she looks at the clear blue sky* “I am sorry I am so latein posting hear again, I just wanted you and those that still love you to know that I have not forgotten. I even played a little extra Skyrim just for you over the years, I remember that you wear looking forward to it.” *She gets up and fluffs her wings* “We all still miss you Athus, but you will always in in the hearts of those you touched with your kindness!”

  • Sato says:

    I just want to thank you Narse, When i was younger, i stumbled upon your art out of pure chance, and it introduced and pathed the way to a amazing adventure into this subculture I now call home. I have made great friends, and am even teaching myself how to draw! You may have never met me, or even talked to me, but you still made a difference in my life, for that, i humbly thank you.
