    I am going to be absent from the site for at least another week. This includes the three I made for the event (sorry Goths) and for my other characters. Sorry, all.
  3. "The city, always." What is your favourite time of day?
  4. He didn't want this conversation to end. Ask her uncles? Sure, he knew them quite well. However, he did not particularly want to ask them about a gladiatrix slave in the service of a Roman princess. Still.... it raised many questions that he was only too happy to ask. Lucius noticed she didn't immediately say no. He shrugged a little, listened and supposed that he could realistically afford something better. "Oh, please ask her and perhaps there is a chance that I will see you again," He answered, and wondered how he could run into her around Rome. Lucius lifted his cup and gave her a toast. This time he did not block her path and try to stop her. Lucius had already cooked up a plan in order to get the pair of them to meet once more. Cynane could not write.... but... her Domina certainly could. "Farewell, beautiful Amazon...… I will see you again." -finished- @Atrice
  5. Titus listened. He wondered which of the gangs that Marcus paid for protection. Mandatum or Apolloni were two of the most likely candidates. It was hard to tell which. He sat down on the comfortable chair, made himself comfortable and lifted his chin to expose his neck to the barber. The scent of lemon and almond oil filled his nostrils, strangely it brought up memories of Numeria, his lover. "I am interested in knowing businesses that I plan to frequent more regularly. Your place has come highly recommended." He answered, his hands rested on his lap and were gently folded. The fingertips crossed and idly tapped against each other while he waited for Marcus Barbatius to begin his line of work. Either way, it was still quite impressive to see an establishment lasting six years in Rome. "Forgive me, we have not yet been introduced," He said, extended his hand. "I am Titus Justinius Canicus Phiscerus," Titus introduced himself. There was a chance that Marcus would know him for the association with the Ludus Dacicus or through the illegal dealings with the Lupii of Roma. @Atrice
  6. CAIUS VERGILLUS. 28 | 2 Feb 46AD | Pleb now prisoner | Former soldier | Hetero | Original | Personality & History Caius stole items when he attempted to desert the legions and unfortunately for him he ended up being caught when he attempted to return to Capua. Family Parents: Caius Vergillus x Pappina Acosta Sister: Caia Vergilla EVENT FOR: Gladiatorial games.
  7. Basir 'The Bloody' 27 | 10 June 47AD | Slave - Sagittarius | Gladiator | Pansexual | Original | Bahram Radan Personality & History Basir's parents were taken in one of the in conflicts with Parthia. However, in truth, much of the family origin stories are unknown and likely fabricated due to his gladiatorial persona. He often plays the 'villain' in the gladiatorial conflicts, relishes in the role of the enemy of Rome and enjoys the role he plays. In the arena, he puts on a good show for the audience and plays every inch of the villain. Outside the arena, Basir is a relatively mellow person and has an easy smile on his face. His training began when he would help warm up the Dominus' horses. He could have ended up working as a charioteer for one of the teams yet the Gods had different plans for him. Family Parents: Unknown Siblings: Unknown. EVENT FOR: Gladiatorial games.
  8. Free wine. It was the best thing about any party. He lifted his own and clicked hers before taking a sip of the liquid. Lucius chuckled, shrugged and knew he couldn't answer about the opinions that others had of him. He figured if some of them hated him he would be on borrowed time anyway, and there was no point in worrying about it. No doubt he had his own allies, friends, and people who would have been happy to see his family crumble. "No matter what someone's political allegiance or my own personal feelings, it is important to remain polite at all times." He answered. It was something both of his parents routinely drilled into his head, and, it was something he had tried to do with his own son. Thus far, Lucius Minor knew to behave. At least around his father. @Sydney
  9. Apollodorus 22 | 7 March52AD | Slave | Gladiator - Cestus | Pansexual | Original | Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson Personality & History Apollodorus is the son of a gladiator and one of the household slaves. He grew up in servitude and considers it to be the norm. When he was a boy he got into a fight with another of the household slave boys. He had a vicious right hook and sent the other boy flying. He was flogged for his bad behaviour yet the Dominus saw fighting ability in him - along with the potential to earn coin through his winnings. When he matured he was placed in training at the Ludus and struggled at first to cope with the change of pace. Apollodorus was trained to be a cestus, a boxer style of gladiator and he hated the minimal amount of armour he was forced to wear. He gained the mark of the gladiator, and has already survived bouts. Family Herakles x Caecilia (household slave) Other siblings on either side of the family. EVENT FOR: Gladiatorial games. @Gothic
  10. The Dacians and Dacia had been taken many years ago. But there were always issues with them. The Britons, on the other hand, were quite easy to attain and his top lip lifted with amusement at the Legionary's joke. Many men thought they were immortal until they began gladiatorial training. It was only then that they began to realise that they were mortal. His second-in-command stopped and turned back before he gave a nod of approval. Each of the potentials meeting his preliminary standard. The harsh training would likely decide who would survive, and who would not. "You may go, wine and food has been left for you both," Titus answered. The offer was not needed. It was wise to keep relative peace with the urban cohort of the city. It would make his illegal operations run much more smoothly. Although he rarely, if ever, had any issues when it came to that area. "Doctore!" He called out, and the glistened veteran of many combats approached to view the men. "Dominus, Sir," Quintus greeted his superiors before he turned towards the men. Titus, since his staff were present, was content to permit them to show them whether the candidates would be suitable or not. There were upcoming games, and he was required to send both experienced veterans and new recruits coming up soon. Once the guards were out of the area. The gates were locked. Secured them inside. On Quintus' belt was the sharp whip that would remind the slave's of their station. Titus had to beat the Ludus Magnus. He had to. "Maggots!" Quintus roared, even for Titus, Quintus was particularly crude in his mannerisms and behaviour. Still, he got the job done -- and done right. "If some of you prove yourselves worthy. You will become gladiators and become something better! If not, you will die the worthless scum you are!" Quintus called out. The other gladiators of the Ludus jeered, calling out a variety of threats, curses and mockery towards the men who were not yet their brothers. @Polarity
  11. Coin. Everything always came down to coin. The funding was always an issue for any policy. He did not personally agree with a permanent policy for the future. However, the orphans would then in turn pay that money back to the people of Rome. Charity was for women and for the temples. It was not necessarily something they could depend on. Lucius did not normally wish to repeat himself. However, it was necessary and he rose to his feet to address the gathered group of men. Lucius would not even mention the unthinkable of women serving in the legion. "In agreement with most of what my colleague states," He began, then paused, "Mostly, that is, a tax is necessary yet the populace will need to be reminded of the investment and to see it themselves. Whether it is through construction work or being able to see the men be recruited into the legions when the time comes." Lucius finished before he sat down again, and waited to see what the next comment would be. OOC: RL got in the way. Sorry, all. @Gothic
  12. There were plenty of times when he was perfectly happy to be bested by a woman. Yet this was a Oh... well... now that was certainly unexpected. Through the marriage of his daughter he was connected to the Imperial family and thus, knew who Claudia Caesaris was. What was interesting in particular was why did a Roman princess have a breeches wearing Amazon in her service? What's more.... how did she could to be in her service? The answer only brought more questions than answers! He grinned, shook his head and poured them both some more wine in an invitation. Lucius did not expect her to take it. He mainly desired to tease and get a reaction out of her. "Claudia Caesaris! That explains a lot..... now... how Cynane the Amazonian end up in the service of a Roman princess?" Lucius inquired eagerly, clearly wished to know everything that was taking place and winked at her. It was later in the evening, and soon he too would need to go home in order to rest from the strain of the day. Still..... he was completely and utterly intrigued. "Or perhaps we could have another meeting? I promise, I'll bring the stew!" He exclaimed. Not that he particularly enjoyed eating the food of the lower classes. Still.... he wanted to have something to offer regardless. @Atrice
