  1. July 76, the Circus Neronianus* It was still summer in Rome, still hot, and yet with the advent of a new Caesar, there was a new air of excitement and anticipation even in the heat that pervaded Rome. It was cooler outside the boundary of the city - not a lot cooler, but enough. Racing was something that everyone had an opinion on and interest in, no matter the season or who wore the purple. Most races took place in the Circus Maximus, that vast stretch of racetrack in whose shadow the Whites' stable lay, but there were other venues in Rome for racing to take place, and one of those was the new Circus outside the boundaries of the city, across the Tiber. It was a venue for less prestigious races, and therefore the perfect place to introduce a new charioteer to the business of actually being a charioteer. Marcus had made sure that Azarion had had the opportunity to drive around this smaller track so that its shorter length and tight turns would be more familiar during his first race. And now the chariots were lined up at the end of the Circus; behind the carceres, the starting gate. When the signal was given, the gate would allow all the chariots to move forward at the same time, aiming them deliberately to the right-hand side of the spina that ran down the centre of the circus. Marcus would watch this first race of Azarion's future career from near the starting gate, where he could see right down the circus on both sides of the spina, although not the curve at the far end. He had Varica stationed on the spina itself to cover that - being able to hear of any occurrences there would help with the final assessment of the day. Seven laps would tell whether Marcus was right, or wrong, in his assessment of the boy. @Chevi ( @Járnviðr and @Atrice if you want to include Menelaus and Caeso as either spectators or participants) *Two things: the Circus Neronianus was begun by Caligula (and finished by Claudius in our own timeline, there's no need to think it couldn't have been finished by AeRo's own Claudius); I have referred to it by the name it has in our world because I don't know what it would otherwise be known as. The thread is set in the Transtiberim even though this circus is technically not in that area simply because it is on the other side of the river and only just outside Rome itself. See the map here
  2. June, 75 AD It had been a fine day at the Circus Maximus. Caeso had been racing with his favorite horses, all a lovely brownish red color and his good chariot had not been broken today either. When he finished the last round of his part of the races, he was smiling, because he knew he’d performed well and he had won. Well the team had won. But Caeso had won too. After the race, he went to the stables to help with the horses and cleaning up and he was approached by a messenger, telling him he was invited to a party in the nearby Aventine the same evening. It had been cleared with his master, it was fine that he went, of course it was. Caeso would not be a fugitivus, ever. So for the evening, he dressed up in his finest green tunica – light green for the general fabric, but it had been hemmed with a darker green in a finer fabric, so that it was almost shining. He hadn’t done much to his hair since the afternoon, it took a while to do the twists pulling his long hair towards the back of his head and he kept it like that. He didn’t mind standing out. It was well-known anyway, that he liked it like this. His mother had taught him to do it, ages ago, and she had been taught by her mother, who was born in Germania. It looked impressive, he liked it. At night, he showed up at the right domus and was allowed in, of course he was. There was already a lot going on. Slaves, probably whores, were dancing in the atrium and they probably would not just continue to do dance next to each other. People were there, watching the naked dancers and others were laying on couches, eating delicacies and again others were just conversing. He recognized some of the other charioteers and when some of the guests at the party noticed him, they raised their cups to him, celebrating his win. He gave them a nod and picked up his own cup of wine. Honestly it seemed a little bit dull to him, this party. He hoped it wasn’t going to be an orgy, because then he was leaving again. Caeso went to quietly lean against a pillar in a corner of the peristyle, just watching people, not caring to approach any of them. Why was he here anyway? @Laria
  3. Caeso

    Caeso

    CAESO 25 | August 10th, 50 AD | Slave | Charioteer – Factionis Viridi | Sapiosexual | Original | Alex Høgh Andersen Personality. Had Caeso only been born into a wealthy family that could give him the proper education... but he was not and had some, although it would appear to be just enough. At least his first owner discovered his potential and taught him some valuable skills, that he now enjoy putting to good use. But Caeso is still not quite like the other people and slaves that surround him. While he has friends and tolerate the other slaves and freedmen around him, he is easily bored in a conversation if it turns to be about mere gossip. Caeso likes to think and he likes to discuss the matters of the world - and the matters of horses and races. It is only when he has had some wine that his mind will finally relax a bit, because he tends to overwork it. In fact he likes to work. He hates being bored. He is determined, calculating and cunning and devoted to his job and his team and his horses. Since he was young, he always enjoyed learning new things and has a retentive mind. He hates the other racing teams with a passion and will do whatever is in his power to win a race. Caeso does enjoy the fame. But it is indeed the fame itself that he enjoys, and not what people offer him in return. He is not very interested in romance or sex; some think something is wrong with him, because unlike some other charioteers, he does not sleep around and he often rejects people who offer themselves to him. It sounds like a cliché, but Caeso is like this - it's not about your looks or appearance, that does not turn him on. He's turned on by your mind. He is attracted to other intelligent minds instead of their lovely faces. He has met few who truly interested him and cares little about gender and more about how you think and how you talk. He does have something of a temper, that shows when he is either very bored or something did not quite go and work out as he had planned. For example, Caeso really enjoys winning a race. Then he knows he did the right thing and he will enjoy the cheer of the crowd and the attention people give him. But if he loses a race... or something just does not go as he had hoped, Caeso may react by yelling, throwing things, kicking people... until someone manages to talk him down or simply leaves him alone. So really, it is just best that he wins. For everyone. Appearance Caeso is fairly tall, standing just about 5´10” tall and he has fair, often tanned, skin. His build is athelic and slim and his upper body appears stronger and more muscular than his lower body – probably because it’s his upper body he uses mostly for his work. He has dark brown hair and striking, piercing blue eyes – a feature many ladies tend to adore, although he pays them little mind at all. He has high cheekbones and a sharp jawline, that together with his blue eyes, make him easily recognizable. He most often wears a practical tunica, that ends just above his knees and good soldier-like sandals on his feet. When he races, he wears dark armor and in the colors of his team of course. His hair is long and on an ordinary day, it is pulled back into a ponytail. When he races, he makes it up to appear more fierce with twists and braids in a Germanic style that his mother taught him and says her mother taught her. Caeso likes to look fierce, exotic... and frightening. Family Father: Unknown gladiator Mother: Spurilla, 43 – slave Siblings: Gaius, 22, slave (they only share mother, not father) Spouse: N/A Children: N/A Extended family: N/A Other: Dominus: Lucius Gavius Caepio, head of the Green faction/Domine Factionis Viridi History Spurilla, Caeso’s mother, was born as the daughter to two slaves that came from the wilds of Germania. He can probably thank this heritage for his height and his blue eyes, although he knows little about the lands up to the North, as he has never been there. Spurilla was born as a slave and grew up as a slave and still remains a slave. When she was 16 years old, her master began using her in his bed and when he held social parties and orgies, he would also use Spurilla. This was how Spurilla ended up underneath a few gladiators for entertainment and about a month later, she discovered she was pregnant. And into the world came Caeso the slaveboy. His mother later had another son, Gaius, whose father is also unknown. While he was very young, he behaved like most other children and when he was old enough, he was taught to perform regular small little tasks in the household. He enjoyed the work and the routines faster than some of the other young kids and as he grew older and the tasks grew more complex, he turned out to be a good at solving issues and troubles in his daily work. His master began to take notice of the young boy and took him in, began to teach him things. Caeso was like a sponge, he liked learning. When he was ten years old, he would recite famous works and poetry in the household and he would help his master with his work as an apprentice secretary. He loved every second of it. Meanwhile his younger brother was a very different type and Caeso never had much to do with him. His master died when he was 13 years old. Caeso’s life suddenly changed, as his master’s brother decided to sell Caeso together with his mother and his younger brother, Gaius. He ended up in some stables, where they required hard labor and it was nothing like what he was used to. At first he hated it. He wanted to go back to his old master, but he was dead and his mother explained that such a life was over now. She would do other work and was just pleased her life had now calmed down a bit. They had to accept this new life. And eventually, Caeso did adapt. Very well in fact. He found that he liked the horses and they liked him too, it seemed. When he watched the races, he sometimes came up with ideas on how to beat the other teams or how to sabotage them… and the ideas often worked. Caeso wasn’t at all useless here. Soon they allowed him to help warming the horses up for the races; someone put him in a chariot and let him steer. Caeso found he enjoyed the speed and enjoyed using his skills when it came to strategy and thought – to plan what to do next, to calculate the next turn and the next sabotage to the opponents. He knew the horses and knew how they would react to what he did. And he did it well. When he was 20 years old, he participated in his first race as a charioteer and never looked back since. He’s happy in that position; he enjoys the action and the speed and using his mind at the same time. And it works. It has earned him fame. And he likes to keep it that way.
