Mitt Alhammittsson is the protagonist of Drowned Ammet, and a well-meaning but initially very ignorant young man. His family having been tricked out of their farm by an evil ruler, Mitt's father joins a rebellious group and then disappears after someone betrays the group during a botched attempt to rob a warehouse. Mitt tries to take revenge on whoever betrayed them by pretending to assassinate the Earl, but things go wrong, and he ends up fleeing for his life. It's the people and demigods he meets during this flight that propel the novel and make it more than just the travails of a young man with some very bad luck.
