    Atrice's Plotter

    So it's time for you to read my plotter - here is a little bit of information about all my characters and what plots they might be good for, if you wish to plot with them. They are here listed after rank, with my highest ranked character (Senator) at the top and the lowest (Slave) at the bottom. I'm always open for new ideas too! Just send me a direct message here or poke me on Discord, if you want to play with any of them. Here we go! Tertius Quinctilius Varus Tertius is a senator, back-bencher... and a praetor in his mid 40's. He's a widower with a now 11 year old daughter and has not remarried since his wife died. He's rather bored with life at the moment, so he needs to be cheered up. Tertius likes to have control over anything and mainly his own household - and things easily turn complicated because of this. He recently freed his slave-born son Teutus, his slave Charis is pregnant with his child, but she disobeyed him, so he's angry with her. He adores his body slave Hector. He believes he is a good and kind master to his slaves, but sometimes, he isn't. He just wants them to behave well and if they don't, he's very disappointed. Plot Ideas: - Finding a new wife, although he is not very busy about it - A steady lover outside the household, male or female - More slaves to be played in the household. Played slaves so far are Charis and Hector, his body slave. - Tertius is very neutral when it comes to politics, but anyone in Rome can be bought... - His siblings and nephew and niece are also up for the taking, should anyone want to play them. Look in the Qunctilii Vari thread. Marcus Junius Silanus Young Marcus has just turned 18 and is more than ready for a life with wealth and influence - if he can pull himself together to go that way. Right now he lives with his step-mother, Flavia Juliana and her husband, Quintus Caecina Tusca, and their family. He is also good friends with the young Imperials at the Imperial Palace in Rome and Marcus is known to enjoy a good party. He likes going out, he likes to do what he wants and he likes wealth and luxury. Soon he will join the Viginitiviri and begin his Course of Honor. But for now, he's nothing but a 18 year old who tries his hardest to enjoy life. Plot Ideas: - A love interest/flirt would be very welcome. Perhaps a future wife, but he's far from ready for marriage right now --- there could even be a love triangle here, as Marcus also has quite the crush on his step-sister, Caecina Tusca - Marcus has many connections via his step-mother and his friends at the palace. Anyone connected to Imperials, he could run into - slaves, senators and their families, praetorians/guards - Marcus' father was Decimus Junius Silanus, so anyone with connections to him in the past could meet with Marcus (his brother is currently not in Rome) - Could probably use a proper father figure - His body slave Silvanus is up as a wanted ad Pinaria Gaia Pinaria is a noble lady of a Senatorial family. She was married until last year, when her husband died in a hunting accident and she has been keeping to herself since then - it is first now that she is entering the social life of Rome again, because her brother has urged her to do that and make friends and find a new husband. She has a somewhat pessimistic outlook on life, but is otherwise mostly a warm and friendly woman. She has a secret relationship with her former body slave, Gaia Lucia. Plot ideas: - A new husband, obviously, or just men that might be interested - Someone to play Gaia Lucia, she is a wanted character - She needs friends or maybe former friends, who knew her before her husband died... but they haven't seen her much since he died - Slaves of Publius Pinarius Natta's household, since that is where she currently lives (he's her brother) Septima Major Septima, sometimes called Thalia by her twin sister Septima Minor, is 16 years old and a bright and bubbly young woman. Her parents both died in the civil war over ten years ago and she has lived with her grandparents and the entire family ever since. Septima enjoys being social; she loves parties and going out and is a romantic at heart, hoping to find the perfect husband sometime in the future. And unlike her twin sister, she's becoming quite curious about boys already. Plot Ideas: - Septima is looking for friends around her own age or maybe a little older - Potential future husbands are welcome - Could easily be manipulated by someone with ill intentions - Septima longs for romance and love. Offer her some, with or without good intentions Marcus Barbatius Marcus is 30 years old and works as a barber in Rome - and he is not poor, because he knows how to do his job well. To anyone coming to him as a patron or really any stranger he has not met before, he is friendly and all smiles. He likes to make friends and likes a good cup of wine as much as anyone. But he easily makes up his mind about people and Marcus has two boxes in his mind... one for people who deserves his respect and his kindness. And one for those lesser than he, people beneith him, who should do nothing else but respect him and do as he says. He has access to sharp objects and he's not afraid to use them. And he knows that you should not go around hurting other people, so he prefers to keep this secret. Perhaps he will continue to escape justice... and perhaps he will end up in jail. It will be interesting to see what happens to this character. Plot Ideas: - His services could be purchased, if someone else needs a quite close shave.... - Potential wife offers, although it is not certain he will actually marry - Some people will sense something is off about him and if he finds out, he won't like it - He can use friends and allies, clients and maybe a lover? - Marcus is also looking for some Slaves to his household Lexus Naevius Gineverus If this name seems a little familiar, it's because Lexus is Alexius' son. The two have never met though and Lexus is now 16 years old and recently lost his mother, who was attacked by a gang in the street and lost her life because of the injuries. He now lives in the house of Oriana Laecinia, where his father also lives and Lexus works in the gardens. He's your ordinary curious, but inexperienced, teenager and easily get in trouble. He is also more thoughtful now than he used to be, after he lost his mother. He's also nice and polite though and just wants to make people around him feel good. Lexus tends to be a bit awkward around girls. Plot Ideas: - Although he has now met his father, he is still interested in learning about him from others - Lexus is curious and openminded and talks a lot... some could see that as being nosy and he'll get in trouble - Friends at his own age are welcome - A first love and a proper first kiss (perhaps to be Septima Minor) - Someone to guide him in life (Alexius is many things, but he will not be a good and proper teacher) Lucius Antonius Alexius Alexius was born in Germania, captured by raiding barbarians and sold to Rome as a slave when he was 7. Back then, he was known as Lexus. When he was 15, he became a gladiator and became rather famours. In his mid-twenties, he was freed and made a lanista. Eventually he left Rome to return to Germania, but it wasn't all that he hoped, so he has come back to Rome. He is 39 now and has just moved away from his former employer, Oriana Laecinia, where he worked as her personal bodyguard (and had a secret affair with her). He has met his son, Lexus, and now lives with him. Plot Ideas: - Old and new lovers are always welcome for Alexius. His list is here: Alexius' Special Tracker - He likes to get drunk and likes a good brawl... could get in trouble with that - Old and new friends are also welcome - He has a wanted ad for his sister Amalia, whom he's been looking for ever since they were separated as kids. - A new employer for Alexius, who will hire him? He works as bodyguard, henchman, mercenary, you name it... - Alexius actually does long to settle down with someone. Find his one true love? Manius Rutilius Gallus Manius was born and raised in Rome as an ordinary Plebian. When he was young, he worked at the slave market and married and had a child. They were murdered when his son was 2 years old, due to Manius owing debts for gambling. After this incident, he gave himself over to slavery and he's been feeling more or less miserable since. He had three different owners as a slave, the last one being Manius Rutilius Cyprianus, the infamous dictator, who is now dead (by execution). Cyprianus freed Manius, who married fellow former slave and freedwoman Salacia and they lived as happily as possible for 15 years. Salacia however disappeared during the earthquake and is presumed dead. Manius is now employed as a bodyguard for Caecina Tusca and is still miserable and believes he has failed everyone in his past. He thinks the gods are toying with him and Fortuna hates him. He has a strong sense of what's right and wrong and will act upon this. He enjoys pain and may pick fights just to get beaten up - because he believes he deserves and because he likes it, but he'd never admit that to anyone. Plot Ideas: - Anyone coming into contact with Caecina Tusca are prone to being investigated by Manius - Manius holds grudges against anyone who has harmed anyone he cared about in the past - Slaves may have come across him during his many years working at the slave market - A lover or maybe even more, although he is afraid to marry, since he already lost two wives. He believes he's bad luck to wives. - Someone who may hurt him. His son and wife were murdered in the past by the Servian Collegium because he owed them coin. They could get him in trouble again. Wulfric of the Chatti Wulfric was born in Germania, his mother a princess and for many years, he believed his mother's husband was his father. But after said father's death, his mother Frieda revealed the truth... Wulfric's father is actually Tertius Quinctilius Varus and she wanted Wulfric to find him. This is why Wulfric now, at the age of 23, has arrived in Rome, searching for knowledge about his father and his father's people. Wulfric is generally a friendly and outgoing man, he prefers to talk rather than fight (but he can fight) - but he can also be rather stubborn if he believes he's right about something. A trait he may have inherited from his father. He looks quite a lot like Tertius and anyone meeting him and knowing Tertius will pick up the resemblance between the two. Wulfric will eventually find his father, but not too soon. Plot ideas: - Any foreigners, especially of Germania, could come into contact with Wulfric - He won't like the thought of his people being enslaved in Rome, so he may actually try and get some free - Once Wulfric realizes the Romans won't think highly of a grandchild to a Germanian chieftain, he'll need a job and a place to stay - Wulfric may also meet someone to love and/or marry in Rome - He does not exactly hate the Romans, but he will most likely be a bit defensive towards them Cynane Cynane has been a slave in Rome for over 10 years now. She's a war captive from Britannia and originally comes from the Brigantes tribe. She spent most of her years in Rome as a gladiatrix, but the last two years she has been a personal bodyguard to the imperial princess, Claudia Caesaris - secretly training the princess and Cynane feels very strongly for her, a strange mix of protectiveness and deep care - perhaps there are even romantic feelings involved. Cynane does not always speak much, because when she does, she speaks her mind. She is a very skilled warrior who takes her job seriously; she does not trust people easily though. She can use anything from friends to enemies and lovers of course. Plot Ideas: - She's bicurious, meaning her lovers so far have been men, but few were by her choice - She has a crush of sorts on her mistress, Claudia Caesaris - Anyone connected to the Imperial family could run into her - Anyone she might have met during the last 10 years she spent in Rome, she must have met a lot of people - She has a longing for freedom and still dislikes most Romans - I have a wanted ad for a Lover for Cynane because she deserves some love and romance in her life Helios Helios is a slave and prostitute working at the Domus Venus, where he's been for over 10 years. He also functions as a spy for his mistress (and other people who will pay for it) and often takes senators and wealthy Romans to his bed, to lure out secrets. He claims he's accepted life as a slave and does not want anything out of life, but secretly of course, he does want that. Lately he has had a desire for freedom and will try and buy himself free. He enjoys working as a spy and will happily buy and sell secrets, also for his own gain. Plot Ideas: - People Helios can meet and talk to to gain secrets and information --- These could be returning patrons/lovers at the brothel, but also people everywhere else in Rome --- Helios so far has secrets/info about Oriana Laecania, Alexius, Nymphias, Charis, Teutus, Hector and Tertius Quinctilius Varus - An actual real friend - His job as a spy could get him into trouble if he found out secrets about someone really important - Fellow slaves/whores/guards at the brothel - He has a secret and unrequited crush on a bouncer in the Domus Venus (Marcus Falco) - He has also managed to seduce Nymphias, sister of Charis and may have feelings for her Caeso Caeso is 25 years old and was born as a slave in Rome and has always lived here. He is a charioteer for the Green racing team and passionate about it. He is known to be good at calculating his next move in the races and in general and he is also the mastermind behind some sabotage against the other teams. He has a strategic and retentive mind and memory and is easily bored. Usually he is in a good or at least content mood, but he can lose his temper if something does not go the way he wants to. He is not really a romantic type, nor is he a womanizing type, as he is turned on and attracted to intelligence rather than looks and appearance. Plot Ideas: - Rivals (or frenemies) among the other racing teams - Someone who will bore him immensely - or the opposite - Someone whom he will get along with, but he finds out they root for the other team - A friend or even a lover who is clever enough to catch his interest - His brother Gaius, 22, will be made into a wanted soon. He is nothing like Caeso though.
  2. October 75 AD It was her favorite time of the year. Going to shop for new fabrics. As the daughter of a senator, he tasked Safinia with making sure her apperance was up to par. But she knew the true reason for it. Safinia knew that her father would not stop until she was arranged and close to being married off. But his tactics were...less than tact. She had to apologize for the last time that had occurred and she knew it would not be the last time. But going out to the market did seem to get her out of the home in which they stayed. Safinia liked to coordinate the silks she bought with ones that would be perfect for the occasion or season that the city found itself in. Of course she did not make the dresses themselves. No, no. She seemed to trust the ladies that put it together. However. She did have this little trick that she liked to find thread in order to make patterns on her dresses. It makes them feel like they are something that she wears for her. That makes her feel..well, more like her. Not someone her father could parade around. In fact, it was something a little hurtful. But she would make do as she must. But not without remaining true to herself. When dressing with the help of one of her servants, she found a pink dress with golden leaves around the top and bottom of the dress. When asked about it, one of the servants said it was a suggestion from her father. Of course. But she kept herself silent as she dressed, also allowing a matching pink hair adornment (or veil for her hair) to be in the back of her hair. Once obtaining the bag of coins that was gifted to her, she grabbed her small basket and one of her house female slaves were out of the house and began their walk. As they walked Safinia liked to talk to the lady with her about the seasons and suggestions from her observations. She always had the greatest helps for the silks she would purchase and she hoped today would be no different either. As they entered the market, the familiar shouts of the merchants were coming through. From fruits to figs to the usual gold, the marketplace was alive as ever. It was a pleasant sound to her ears. Sometimes she bought a little bit of fruit for her to eat upon her return back. But as she passed by the section with the fabrics, she stopped in midstep as she looked through each of them with wondering eyes as she reached out to touch the fabric but as she looked she felt like some eyes were upon her, but she was so transfixed she couldn't even bear to notice it for right now. It was in fact her simple getaway.
  3. Safinia let the slaves fuss over her as well as her mother. It was only for a dinner with the family. No need to fuss over her. Or she had believed. Well the good thing for tonight was that she was wearing a new dress that was light green with simple in its designs with white sleeves to match it. Safinia did like the material and it was much better than the utter chaos and tragedy that was pink. A good color to be certain. But it was just simply not her color. She was willing to try and apologize to her father for her behavior. While she did believe in her behavior,she also believed in making peace for it was too drastic. It was something she had to do. As she made her way to wear the dining was, she spoke to herself practicing to what she was to say to her father. It was a simple one but it would be for the peace. She wasn’t about to change her ways unless she thought it would save her life. But maybe this way her father won’t parade her in a square like a livestock looking for a farmer. No it was the other way around. But regardless. She had to. Plus her mother would constantly lecture her. As the young lady made her way into the dining area,she saw her father was waiting for her with....Praetor Tertius. This was indeed a shock. But not surprising as seeing as he was not the only of the senate to visit. Her father put down his goblet and walked over to her. “Ahh there you come come.” He ushered his daughter over and introduced her. Safinia was only a little bit confused as she looked to her father who cleared his throat. She bowed her head,speaking of the honor. Her father then excused himself out of the room leaving only the slaves in prescence. “It is a honor to receive you in our home..” She spoke. “But if I may pry to ask,why now? No disrespect to you good sir but you’re not one of the senate to visit my father. Again,no insult meant” @Atrice
  4. MARCUS BARBATIUS 29 | 1st April 45 AD | Plebian | Barber | Bisexual | Original | Jonathan Rhys Meyers Personality. It is hard to describe a man like Marcus Barbatius. It might be easier to just meet him and make up your own idea about him, rather than having him described. You might describe him as twisted though, if you really knew him. He is a psychopath and a sadist, after all. He has an unnatural fascination with blood and he does not feel guilty about it. He knows of course it's not normal to be the way he is, but he does not try to control his desires or urges. Few know him so well though, besides his personal slaves. Marcus will have different personalities according to whom he interacts with. With wealthy people, patrons, senators and other useful people, he can be the friendliest person you have ever met. He will be charming and all smiles and more than happy to do your biding, so he can earn his coin. With people who are beneath him, people who offend him and annoy him for some reaosn… everything is different. He knows that he has the upper hand with slaves and especially his own for example; knows that is his choice whether they live or die. And if they behave well, they’ll be fine and live. However, the tiniest mistake or flaw will annoy Marcus, who is constantly seeking reasons to hurt others, because he knows it ought to be justified, at least. So he looks for the reasons and believes he is in his right to hurt someone, when he does. Marcus is not a weak man and he is the one who has access to any blade in the house. It's never easy to be his slave and he can be hard to please - and he does not care what you feel. He wants to be hard to please, so he can justify his actions. Marcus has no wife and has no plans on having one. He has never been in love and people he call friends are very rare, since few people would understand him and he's aware of this. He knows he probably ought to marry, but he does not have this strong desire to have an heir, like many Romans seem to have. Marcus likes to be free to do whatever he pleases in his home and rightfully thinks a wife would restrain him. Appearance Maybe it is his mother’s foreign origin, but Marcus is sometimes tall among Romans; standing 5’8” tall. He has striking blue eyes that can appear almost piercing, as if he is always onto you or always considering or scheming something. And who knows if he is? He has an athletic build and short, brown hair. He prefers dark or green colors with his clothes, although his most cherished clothing is a blue tunica, because blue has always been a color of status where he came from. Around his neck, in a leather string, hangs an iron key. Family Father: Marcus Barbatius Major (deceased) Mother: Gaia Aulietia (deceased) Siblings: Gaius Barbatius (deceased) Spouse: N/A Children: N/A Extended family: Marcus Barbatius Magnus – mother’s husband (deceased) Other: History 45 AD – Marcus is born to a father, who used to be a simple and ordinary soldier in the Roman army. His mother was born and grew up in Gaul. When his father had served his years, he settled down with Gaia and had two sons. Marcus was the first. Marcus is from a young age an introvert and prefers to be left on his own. Something is very different about this boy. 47 AD – Gaius, Marcus’ younger brother, is born. Gaius is more outgoing and gentle than Marcus. As Marcus grows, it's obvious he is not normal. He has a tendency to lie, to want to hurt others, he is manipulative and he is a narcissist. 55 AD – Marcus’ father dies and his mother is open about being in a relationship with his father’s freed slave, Magnus. Magnus is a war captive turned into a slave, who worked as Marcus’ fathers body slave. When Marcus’ father died, Magnus was freed. Marcus’ mother marries Magnus and Magnus settles down as a barber. He trains both Marcus and Gaius to become barbers too, although he does not adopt the children to be his own sons. With Marcus being the more reserved type, Magnus gets along with Gaius much better. 57 AD – Marcus thinks his brother Gaius, who is more gentle than he, is spoiled by their adoptive father and a dislike towards Gaius begins growing in Marcus. When they’re alone, Marcus tends to bully and try to hurt his brother. Nothing else changes though and no one does anything about Marcus' behavior. 62 AD – Major uproar in Rome, which they hear about in the small town in Gaul. Marcus is now working alongside Magnus as a barber and hears a lot about Rome – and they are all glad they don’t live there. Gaius is still just an assistant to the barbers and Marcus makes sure his brother knows this. 63 AD – Marcus gets upset with Gaius over something minor – using it as an excuse - and cuts his arm deeply with one of the razors. Gaius loses at lot of blood while Marcus does nothing. Gaia, their mother, helps Gaius and Magnus is of course upset over this and wants Marcus gone. Gaia, Marcus’ mother, does not want him to leave, despite what he did. Marcus is still her son. But after the incident, the household feels different. Gaius recovers, but is afraid of Marcus and Marcus enjoys the power he has over his brother and the family. 64 AD – Magnus is tired of Marcus and his weird behavior and wants to kick him out. There is a fight in the household and Marcus ends up killing his mother’s husband. 19 years old, he is now the eldest in the household and threatens Gaia and Gaius, to makes sure they will keep the secret about the murder. They cut up the body and burn it. No one blames him for the murder and by anyone else; the death is treated as an accident. Gaius however has a hard time forgiving his older brother. Marcus enjoys his rank in the household and uses threats and violence to both his mother and brother to keep them submissive to him. 66 AD – After two years of mental and physical abuse (beatings and cuts with blades) from Marcus, Gaius will no longer stand for it. He leaves the house to go and tell the vigiles of the city about his brother, but makes the mistake of sharing the idea with his mother. Marcus forces her to tell where Gaius went and then follows Gaius and kills him, burying the body in the nearby woods. Gaia of course knows what happened and confronts Marcus with it, wanting him to stop with his violent behavior or she will tell. Enough is enough, she says. That doesn’t help. She ends up dead too and Marcus also hides her body before gathering all his belongings and in the dark night, he leaves the town behind him for good. 68 AD – Marcus arrives in Rome and settles down as a barber, pleased to start a new life in a place where no one knows him. He purchases a few cheap slaves from the market to become his assistants and now again has someone to abuse. Outwardly, towards free citizens of Rome, Marcus appears friendly and open and soon becomes a successful barber. Marcus takes in more and wealthier clients, pampering them with razors, strigils, lotions and oils and massages by his slaves. 69 AD – One of his slaves has gotten into trouble too many times with Marcus and before Marcus can punish him, the slave somehow gets his hands on a blade and slits his own throat. Marcus is very upset over this and now keeps his blades locked in a chest – and keeps the key around his neck. He vows to never have another slave take his or her own life in his house. Then of course Marcus just buys a new slave and continues as if nothing happened. 74 AD – Marcus does not know how many slaves he has owned and how many he has murdered, because they weren't submissive enough or because he wanted to kill them, before they could take their own lives. He has several of them now and is still a successful barber. He is far from poor now and has a fine home in Rome. Senators come to him to be pampered and he takes good care of them. A few people may sense that something is off about Marcus and wonder why he purchases so many slaves and what happens to some of them. And maybe one or two people have died because they knew too much and Marcus didn’t want them to tell… meaning that so far, no one really knows. Whether it can continue like this, time will tell… Atrice | GMT+1 | PM or Discord

    The Roman Burger

    Roman Burgers! Hello everyone and welcome to a new edition of Atrice's blog! I was inspired by the chat on Discord, where someone linked to an article on the ancient Roman burger... and I can tell you all to make it at home, because it tastes quite good. I have made the Roman burger at home a few times (it's our Lupercalia food, it seems). The burgers are called Isicia Omentata. I use Apicius' recipe - Apicius was a Roman gourmet who wrote down a number of recipes from his era and the recipes and cookbook has been preserved until today. You can find a recipe - along with many other interesting ancient Roman recipes right here: Antique Roman Dishes. A friend of mine is also rather fond of the melon salad just below the burger recipe. I prefer to use minced pork, but you can use any kind of meat you want, since the recipe does not mention which kind. I'm sure it would be good with beef too. I prefer to eat them in a bun, but you can do however you like, because we don't know if they ate them like we eat burgers today (in a bun) or if it was a side dish or just on their own. You could also bake the Pompeii bread (look it up on Google) and serve with the burgers. Bon Appetit!

    Cynane

    CYNANE 31 | November 44 AD | Slave | Imperial Bodyguard | Bicurious | Wanted | Katheryn Winnick Personality. Cynane protects her young mistress, with her life if she has to... in the beginning, this was of course because she'd been ordered to do so. Cynane does not want to return to the arena as a gladiator though, she enjoys life in the imperial palace and does her best to do her job well. She does not want to kill for sport and become a whore again - so she has her reasons for doing her job well. She does not always talk much, because when she talks, she has a tendency to speak her mind and she is not good at being submissive and inferior... she was never raised to be such a person, after all. She does however appear very formal and strict and she knows a thing or two about discipline - however if you push her far enough, she isn't always able to control her temper. She may be a slave, but she is still also a proud warrior and a proud woman in general. Cynane does of course hope she may one day be freed, but also knows this is not something to strive for. She is a war-captive and she's very much aware of this. She has come to care a little for her orphaned mistress, but this is not something she talks about either. She is, after all, supposed to act like a slave and not like a friend. Cynane does not trust people easily though - it went well before she became a slave, but after that, many events has made her harder than she was before. Rough experiences with men after she became a slave has also made her dislike or mistrust most men and she still dislikes most other Romans except for Claudia. She has never had a steady lover for the same reason - she has a hard shell by now and it's hard to break through it. Appearance Cynane is tall compared to most Roman women, standing almost 170 cm tall. She has long, blonde hair, which is often braided and kept in a hairstyle on top of her head - so that it is not in the way of her work. Her eyes are blue and she has full, light red lips and a slender and trained body, ready to fight whenever possible. Cynane often spends her free time training, so that she is always ready for battle - this is how she was brought up, after all. She dislikes wearing dresses, but prefers breeches, a long tunica and a leather vest to protect her body with. She will also wear armor if she is escorting her mistress away from the imperial home. She likes the color blue and wears it when able - where she comes from, blue is a rare color and it holds a lot of meaning to her. Family Father: Owen (deceased) Mother: Briannah (deceased) Siblings: Meredith (sister, 27), Briannon (sister, 29), Herne (brother, 35) - all unknown whereabouts Spouse: N/A Children: N/A Extended family: Ysulda of the Brigantes/Flavia Isolda (cousin, not played) Other: -- Owner: Claudia Caesaris History Born and raised in Britannia, Cynane – back then known as Cinnia - lived a free life from childhood and until she was 18 years old. During most of her life, she knew there had been war between the British tribes and Rome, which was trying to invade and would eventually succeed. Cinnia’s family was related to the king of her tribe, the Brigantes, and the king made sure his entire family were constantly ready for the Romans. This meant that every child who reached puberty was given training as a warrior – this included the young women and thus also Cinnia. She knew this all her life, of course, and she was more than ready to fight when finally given the chance. Her cousin was Ysulda, who'd eventually attempt becoming queen of their tribe and would also eventually end up in Rome, like Cinnia. None of them knew this when they were young though. Cinnia met Eppitacos when Ysulda and he became betrothed and they got along well. But sadly, Ysulda was set up to become his wife already, so Cinnia forgot about the crush again. Cinnia proved to be a strong and skilled warrior and when her tribe joined battles against the Romans in 62 AD, Cinnia was in the British army. She was optimistic, believing in the strong blood of Britannia to come out on the winning side – but her party was defeated by the Romans and Cinnia was among those taken captive. Her father died in the battle and she does not know whether any of her siblings survived. She later heard that her party was the only losing party in that particular battle and still today holds a grudge towards Eppitacos, since none of the others came to their aid. If they had done so, she might not have become a slave. Since Cinnia was a female and skilled warrior, it was quickly decided she would become a gladiatrix in Rome. She hated being in chains and under Roman rule – she had grown up free and was used to making her own decisions. None of that mattered though. In 63 AD, she was finally brought to a ludus in Rome, renamed Cynane and deemed breakable. Breakable?! Cynane would prove them wrong, she had been raised to be a strong woman and she still was, despite her current state of life. Her lanista and doctore tried hard to break her though, but eventually it was a matter of either killing her by breaking her or sending her into the arena, hoping she'd die there. And at least in the arena, they got something out of her death, so she was sent to the sands – they expected her to die. Of course she didn’t. She fought and she lived and received great glory in the arena. The crowd loved her and her skills and Cynane began to understand she could live this life. At least it was more than being chained constantly. There was one downside to it though – after the fighting, wealthy Romans would want to bed her, and while she was strong in the arena, she was expected to submit to their pleasures. This was how she lost her virginity – and her first time wasn’t all that pleasant. Yet Cynane was not ready to die. And apparently it would work out in the long run, to stay alive. Her life changed again in 72 AD, when a male member of the imperial family noticed her skills - and she was deemed useful for more than the arena and pleasure for coin. Cynane was removed from the ludus by Octavius Flavius Alexander and soon after gifted to his niece, the young imperial lady Claudia Caesaris, to become her personal bodyguard. She has been with Claudia over three years now and has so far proven to be loyal. She is pleased to no longer be a gladiator and enjoys the life of a guard and slave at the court - which she considers more luxurious than when she lived at the ludus with the gladiators. She has even developed protective feelings for the orphaned princess, maybe even other feelings too. There's a good chance, that Claudia is still the only Roman she cares about. She has not forgotten she’s a slave and has not stopped yearning for freedom – she never will – but life could be worse. Atrice | GMT+1 | PM or Discord
