SULPICIA Q.L VENUSIANA
36 | 01 April 38BCE | Freedwoman | | Bisexual | Wanted | Katie McGrath
Sulpicia or Venusiana (depending who you ask) is quite known for many of a reasons. Rather it be for her sordid past as a body slave. For her personality alone. But it can also be to the tee that not one knows about the lady rather that she is free but keeps so close to the Sulpicius household. Venusiana's affairs and choices are hers alone. Her lovers are those who truthfully know her. Cornelia more so since she has been with her all of the more since the day of her marriage. But Venus was much more than a body slave. She is unique in every way.
The first thing to know about her is she is cunning. She may not have the title of a lady but she has the wits of one planning a plan without one knowing. She is also cunning in the way of being a good spy and keeping an ear out for gossip among the streets or even in whispers among crowds. This could be also how she keeps an eye on affairs between the lovers of Eris. While not one herself, she keeps an eye out for. Of course she also listens to the gossip and then tells Cornelia about it. Often with great giggles and comments. She also has a way of twisting ones words so that it is given in the advantage of herself, her loves. Especially if it is in Quintus's favor certainly. But this cunning ways can also be her downfall as she has been easily caught once or twice by others when she doesn't catch herself.
She is also fiercely loyal. She was a body slave given to Cornelia upon her wedding day and was initally suppose to keep focus and tabs upon Quintus. But here's the thing with her loyalty to Annthea. Once charged in the service of Nelia, Venusiana saw truthfully her true purpose and it was not something she wished to be apart of. She felt loyalty and felt that she was more accepted and safer with her mistress. She often kept her mistress's secrets and gave the annual gossip when she could of course bring it back to Nelia. Then when she was brought to love Quintus as well,she could see that her heart and loyalty was in her loves.
Venus stands as a visage of beauty at 5'0. She was born of her mother's black hair that matches a raven's feathers. Her skin complexion is fair for a freewoman and almost an milky white tone about them. Her eyes spark of a dark green color. Her lips are voluptuous and fair. She is still young in age and still holds a very curveous body. She has not yet known the joys of being a mother so she still holds firm the firmness of her breasts. Her hips are also of perfection and fairness as well upon that. Her appearance in clothing has changed since her days as a body slave. Once she held the collar of a slave and a clothing dress suitable for the slave. But since hence freed by her dominus [and lover], she now has clothes of a free woman. She also has the freecap but chooses to not wear it as she doesn't have to be given a choice. She has since now been put in only the best of clothing thanks in part to her other beloved love Cornelia. She always makes sure that Venus has the best. The best to which Quintus doesn't bat an eye. The dresses she wears are of the finest silk but Venusiana got to choose the color. She could only think of one color. Blue. The color that Quintus and Cornelia always preferred on her best as it did treat their eyes and feasted their appetites in love for her.
Father: Unknown, died before she was born.
Mother: Licinia (Deceased).
Extended family: N/A
Other: Quintus Sulpicius Rufus and Cornelia Scipionis - Lovers. Former domina and dominus. She loves them both with her heart.
Not much is known Sulpicia's past other than the fact she was born into a slave life. She was born to a slave mother who was a body slave just like her daughter would be. The father is relatively unknown. Actually, there is no record of him in history. But Sulpicia was never relatively born for happiness. No teachings to her name. Well, none that would befit a noble. However, that didn't stop her mother from teaching her once she was old enough. By the time, she was the age of thirteen that was when all of her teachings were to be had. She however did learn how to properly speak to nobles, how to keep a conversation when asked by her domina or dominus. She was also taught by her mother with the fact of cosmetics. This was an important thing to learn for her mother seemed to think her daughter was destined to be a body slave with how much she grew and how beautiful she became to be.
Who was the family they served?
Annthea was the lady in question and Venusiana was in her teens, about 16 years of age, was in her prime to be perfectly suited for a body slave. She had all of her training and all of her knowledge. Plus she had the eyes and beauty that would be needed. So the great lady had the idea to give her to her niece, Cornelia as a wedding gift. While the wedding hadn't been for a couple of weeks, it did give her time to know her domina and she made her life mission to make sure that she was comforted and did her best to make sure she was pleased with her. But she also had one great quality was that she could keep a look out on gossip so they could keep on top of it or keep it quiet. If it did make sense. But once Cordelia was married to Quintus, she did make the same promise to her dominus. Not soon long after her service was started, she began to feel feelings for both her domina . It was not common for body slaves to feel love for those they serve. But this was different. It was feelings driven from her loyalty and her driven heart. It was complicated to explain but in heart she knew she loved them or at this point, could love them with all of her deep heart. She also became very inspired by just how opinonated that Cornelia was but she had seen how her aunt had ran her household so she believed it to be a valued asset. It was something she would take to heart. Body slaves couldn't be opinonated but it didn't stop her from just inserting that into a conversation with her domina or perhaps kept it as a hinted advice within conversation.
After the birth of the first son for Cornelia and Quintus, she began to notice a change in her dominus and thus she felt to the fact the husband and wife did care for her and she felt the same way, having felt in her heart love for both of them. She counted herself very lucky especially to the fact that she was loved by two wonderful and loving people within her life. Especially when she never thought as a body slave she would receive that kind of love. That kind of luck did remain as a few years later, she had been granted her freedom and became a freed-woman. When told of such news,she broke down with happy and joyous tears,thanking Quintus over and over again. But just because she was a free woman did not mean her loyality that she had before would not wane. It would still remain. She of course would live in a house on her own but near in the very great case that Cornelia or Quintus would need her. But all the while she would keep her ears out and provide what knowledge she could. After the Clemens purge and Quintus did not send for Cornelia, she was there to make sure to give comfort and support her through what was likely to be a trying time. But her loyalty and heart would always remain,to which she was certain.
When the civil war had come about the hardships still remained, when Quintus Sulpicius went to the east, she had heard of the bribes he had done to keep Cornelia and their children safe. So she would do her part and also try to use her charm (but not her body) to quell any man who wished to harm the family and for all of her good graces it had worked for the greater part. But throughout the war, she kept close to Cornelia and pray to any gods she could must that their love would be brought home safe to them. This would come to fruition by the end of the civil war and they were all reunited once more and peace and prosperity was done with the new Caesar.
Now to the present, Venusiana relishes in being a freed-woman while understanding that she now still a freed-woman who makes the most of her time spending her time with Cordelia and Quintus while also seeing their children and wondering about and minding her own while managing to wonder around and keep to herself. But make no mistake this is one lucky lady to have gone from a body slave to a visage that you will see in the marketplace,counting her blessings.
