Tychon of Knossos
24 | 18 June 50 CE | Slave | Occupation | Heterosexual | Original | Douglas Booth
Were he better groomed and less reticent, Tychon might be considered handsome. While he has certainly outgrown the ancient Greek ideal of a pubescent male beauty, he is not without his appeal. He wears a beard in a more traditionally Greek manner than in current Roman fashion - which is to say, he has a beard at all. With dirty blond hair, some might believe he was once blessed by Apollo. His bronzed complexion and callused hands mark him as someone who works for a living, inasmuch any slave can be said to truly live.

Born in the year Gaius Aurelius Cotta & Servius Tullius Carminus' co-consulship (50 CE) as Hermogenes, the third son and fourth child of Agepetos of Knossos a Citizen in that ancient city, and his wife, Pelagia. Though privileged, Hermogenes was the youngest of his family's sons, and thus was not likely to inherit much in the way of influence and power in either the local government or within the family proper, especially as his father was himself a second son. Nevertheless, it was a point of pride in the family to have educated sons, and thus Hermogenes was afforded a tutor.
From an early age, Hermogenes showed only moderate interest in academics and philosophy, though his active nature often drove him to wandering both the streets and even, on occasion, the outlying farms and wilderness of the island of Crete. As the Roman Empire descended into strife as he was growing up, Hermogenes was taught to fight alongside his family - he excelled in archery, was a tolerable swimmer, and learnt the ways of the sea with some level of skill.
