  1. Lucius Armenius Valerius 52 | 20th March 24 AD | Equite | Brothel Master | Whatever fits his mood | Original | Gerard Butler Personality. Lucius has never really been known as a kind man. Last time he lived in Rome, everyone knew he was up to no good – now however, it is many years ago and his return to Rome so many years later might do him good. After all, now there’s a lot of people who don’t know him. And they can be fooled into thinking otherwise about him. Lucius can be as charming and seem as kind as any man, he is friendly -especially if there’s a good deal coming up for him… but don’t turn your back on him and don’t threaten him in any way. He will do anything he can to gain what he wants, but he is also always looking out for himself and what is his. That’s why he left Rome, so many years ago. But it is his home and after the Empire gained another new emperor, he thought it was about time to see if he could take back what was once his, in the city of cities. It’s not beyond him to threaten or manipulate people so he’ll get what he wants; this is how it has always been. Lucius does hate it when people tell him what to do and when people tell him there’s something he can’t do. Yet this does not mean he’s aggressive and turns on you from one moment to the next; he’ll plot and he’ll plan and he’ll wait for the right moment to strike where it hurts most. And it won’t always be with violence he hurts you – there’s a time and a place for that, but if he gets the chance to choose, Lucius is more fond of mind-games, manipulation and blackmailing. He claims he does not believe in love and never seems to regret anything. He uses people and does not seem to care about what happens to whoever he is using for anything at the moment. People are merely tools in his life and they’re there for his pleasure, satisfaction and gain. Like his whores, for example. The whores, both female and male, that are bought into his brothels are always ‘tested’ by Lucius first – unless they are exquisite young beauties who also happen to be virgins; then he’ll save their virginity for the highest bidder and sleep with them later. At his age and despite being married, he still does this. Luckily, his wife is now more than used to the way Lucius does things and she doesn't mind. As long as she can keep her place as his wife and partner in crime, she is satisfied. And so is Lucius. Appearance Lucius Armenius has dark brown hair, now with gray stains, these days sometimes long enough to curl. He has put away the habit of shaving often and can often be seen with a stubble or even a short beard - dark with gray stains like his hair. His blue-grey eyes appear friendly, but also constantly calculating and alert. He’s rather tall for a Roman born man and it was once rumored that he is the son of his mother and a slave in the brothel and not his actual father. Whether this rumor is true or false, no one knows. He is strong and works hard to stay fit, especially as he is growing older. Lucius likes luxury and that means he likes clothes that feel nice to his skin and clothes that make him look ‘important’. He has several outfits of different lengths and looks to fit the situations he encounters. Lucius never leaves home without either a guard or a blade… or both. He can fight on his own, but prefers to have other people do the dirty work for him. And so he prefers to have both a guard and a blade near his person. Family Father: Hostus Armenius (deceased) Mother: Numeria Fausta (deceased) Siblings: none official Spouse: Leontia Elianilla (31, born April, 45 AD) Children: Aeneas (14 years old, born February 62 AD, son to Lucius and a prostitute. Aeneas is still a slave) Armenia Valeria (born in the winter, 63 AD in Hispania, 13 years old) Lucius Armenius Valerius Minor (born 66 AD in Hispania, 10 years old) Lucia Valeria (born 68 AD in Hispania, 8 years old) Extended family: Other: History Childhood: youth in the brothel – 24 to 45 AD Lucius was born as the one and only child to his married parents – which with time, he thought was a good thing, because that meant he was the spoiled son and the son they would do everything for. Sure he knew his father had a bastard or two with the whores where he grew up, but there weren’t any ‘real’ siblings. His father owned the brothel, which Lucius did not see was wrong at all – this was where he grew up, after all. The brothel was his palace and Lucius was the prince who could command them to do anything. Naturally growing up in such a place meant that he saw many things children weren’t always meant to see. And as he grew older, he grew curious about those things. When he was 13 years old, he finally had it in him to pull himself together to demand that one of the whores lay down on her back so he could try what he had always seen other men do. The woman became his tutor because he chose her, and he was with her several times. There were moments where he began to think he loved her, and this was where his father decided to take charge. His father knew it could not be love and taught Lucius that in Rome, love was not half as valuable as money anyway. Money mattered. Wealth and status mattered. Love did not. Sure, it was a good thing to pretend you felt something, but deep within, you had to think twice about everything and keep your mind on the agenda. To prove it, he made his son lay with another woman, and Lucius discovered he felt the same, for a moment – as if he loved her. He understood what his father had said. Adulthood: Greece, 1st marriage and Equestrian – 46 to 60 AD The older he grew, the more he understood about the brothel too. Together with his cousin Quintus, he learned about the streets of Rome and the life around him and he learned about how to run the brothel. When he was 22 however, his father sent him to Greece to learn properly how to be charming and get what you want, while he’d of course also learn other useful skills in life. He became very friendly with his Greek tutor, so friendly they slept together. He barely wanted to leave Greece and stayed for a few years, until his father wrote that his mother had passed away and Lucius should come back home to help him with the brothel. Lucius became the official treasurer of the brothel, but the older his father grew, the more Lucius took over the brothel itself. He was 32 when he was betrothed for the first time, to a much younger girl, whom he’d marry once she came of age. 3 years later, in early 60 AD, Lucius married the now 15 year old Claudia Tertulla. In the summer of the same year, Lucius’ father died and Lucius was finally officially the brothel owner, and quite pleased with it. In bed, his wife pleased him well enough and was willing enough to learn, but he wanted an heir and she lost a child more than once. Life went on however, and Lucius helped out a certain Manius Rutilius Cyprianus gain rank and status in Rome. He was rewarded with becoming head of the Syndicate gang and besides the Elysium, he was also given the Domus Venus to manage. A year later, he was also elevated to Equestrian rank in Rome by Manius Rutilius Cyprianus. This is also when he gains the name Valerius. Later life: 2nd marriage and leaving Rome – 61 to 77 AD In 61 AD, a little more than a year after he married Claudia, he divorces her again. In the summer, he marries the 16 year old Leontia Elianilla and is given a domus on the Caelian Hill, where he moves in with his new wife. Life went well, but sadly not for long. Cyprianus was no longer the dictator of Rome and lost a lot of his status and in the end after the civil war, he was murdered. Lucius began fearing for his own life and future in Rome. In early 62 AD, Lucius learned one of his slaves had born him a son, whom Lucius named Aeneas. Aeneas still lives and works as a slave in the brothel, although he is among the higher ranked though and is often found together with the guards. Later the same year, Lucius sold the Elysium to another owner, while the Domus Venus remained in the care of the Syndicate gang. Lucius was slowly preparing to leave Rome as the trouble in the city appears to continue. In early 63 AD, Lucius leaves Rome together with his now pregnant wife - along with a large group of slaves/prostitutes and some trusted men and their families. Late in the year, they settled down in Hispania in the city Taracco, far from Rome. Lucius didn’t sit down to brood, instead he opened a new brothel and made sure life could continue almost as before. In the following years, his business expanded into several brothels and other activities, while Lucius also kept his eye on Rome. His wealth grew and his wife gave gave him no less than three surviving children in total. Now the year is 77 AD and Lucius has left Leontia behind to run the brothels in and near Taracco – she has proven a very good help with that. Meanwhile, Lucius returns to Rome, in the first round to scout the city. It seems safe and peaceful with the new and very young emperor. Lucius is still an Equite of rank and his plan is to either take back the Elysium or maybe open a rival to the Domus Venus. Once he has made sure everything is safe and he has made some good connections, he will send for his wife, children and slavesto join him in Rome. Atrice | GMT+1 | PM or Discord @Gothic @Anna
  2. SERVIUS GABINIUS SALAX "It's obviously a corruption of Sagax" @Gothic or @Anna 29 | 9th June 47CE | Equite | Love Elegist | Pansexual | Original | James Callis Personality Gabinius is a simple man. He says what he wants, and very occasionally, he actually gets it. Most of the time he spends either making his presence known around town or sitting in his study, perfecting the perfect tone and volume of voice with which to recite his poetry through the doors of his latest target's villa. In truth, he is not a bad poet - for all his objectionability, there might genuinely be a spark of genius inside him, if you peer closely enough and from the right angle. The real problem, however, is his total lack of experience in the subject he is writing about in his love elegy. This is an issue he is determined to rectify. Appearance It is not immediately apparent to the far-off observer why the light bounces off Gabinius' hair in much the same way it bounces off olive oil spilled from a cargo ship into the sea, until said observer comes within a range of twenty feet, at which distance the pungent aroma of the carefully chosen blend of scented lotions he uses to achieve such an effect assaults the nostrils. Despite not quite being the Adonis he thinks himself to be, Gabinius is... tolerably attractive, enough so that his charm, with which he drips more obviously that he does with rose water, produces a noticeable effect. Unfortunately, this effect is a tad overblown, which in the past had alienated potential lovers almost as much as his personality. Gabinius speaks with an affected suavete at all times (on ne sait jamais!), and when he does, his eyebrows furrow with such startling earnestness that he seems quite convincing. There's no hidden agenda with Gabinius, and even perfect strangers can usually read him as well as the huge letters adorning the pediment of the Temple to Jupiter. This, strangely, is his most attractive quality. What woman wouldn't enjoy the feeling of having him wrapped round her little finger? Family Father: Publius Gabinius Salax Mother: Deceased Siblings: None Spouse: None Children: None Extended family: None Other: History Most of Gabinius' childhood was... well, boring. When you're young, the only son of one of the only non-peasant families in the miserable middle of darkest Mantua, and raring to go and live your life, there's only so much fun you can get out of harassing peasants. It was tempting to take up a political career just to get away from the wretched place, but it was hard to believe the combination of his humble origins and his natural lack of intelligence would exactly endear him to the ruling class. Gabinius didn't want to spend his days listening to stuffy old men drone at each other for hours on end, anyway. All there was for it was to wait for his old dad to pop his clogs - though the stupid old codger didn't seem to want to get round to that any time soon - so he could get his inheritance and slip free of the familial yoke. Until then, he spent his time trying to get it on with the local farm girls, not that many of them were an attractive prospect. Despite, or perhaps because of, Gabinius' tendency to send envoys running back and forth to them with his latest elegy about their ox-eyedness or their general shapeliness, he never had any success with any of them, apart from one slave-boy, whom he dubbed Adonis, from his father's household who probably knew he'd be whipped if he didn't comply. Last year, at the age of 28, Gabinius finally drank in the beautiful sight of the flames eating up the funeral pyre and turned his gaze instead to the bright lights of Athens. Here, he spend a year making a general nuisance of himself and participating in all the wildest rituals on offer, sampling the mind-bending delights of no less than twenty different sets of mysteries. Somehow or other, he managed to convince himself he'd learnt the secret of life, the gods and creation. What it was, he wasn't quite sure, but he felt sure he knew it, and it did lend him a seductive air of mystery, he supposed. That was never a bad thing. After ingesting his fill of strange concoctions in the cellars of temples, Gabinius headed for what had always been his real destination, ready to take on life: Rome. Here, the women, or young men, if he felt so inclined, might have refined enough tastes to realise that actually he, Gabinius, was a pretty decent poet, and that, despite his lack of any experience whatsoever in affairs of the heart apart from being repeatedly and soul-crushingly repulsed, he would make a pretty good lover, probably. His mother had always told him he was a handsome boy, and besides he had a LOT of passion to give. Yes, he'd take Rome by storm. locutus-sum | GMT | locutus-sum#9606
  3. MAECILLIA MARCIA 29 | 1 April 47 | Equite | Wife/Mother | Heterosexual / Married | Original | Synnøve Karlsen Personality. Marcia is the oldest of the Maecillia girls. The first born and the wisest. She is not bold in the same way as her sisters Gaia and Aelia are but she still has her ways of making her points across. With kindness and the uniqueness of her brains and cunning. To a certain aspect. Marcia is well known as sweet natured and dutiful. When she was first placed into public for the idea of a match and marriage, she never was one to be flirtatious. That remained even true when she had met the man she called her husband. Blushes came and went with her. Eye looks whenever possible. But never one to be as overly flirtatious as many women her age. But upon reaching her years of maturity, she began to show just how good and proper she is. She is often shocked at behavior she cannot understand. Including her own rambunctious sister, Gaia. In fact, she often would try to reign in her sister's behavior, not to be diskind but to save her before she does something so silly and foolish. She overtime had also become very happy and very greatful for what she has within her life. Right down for how lucky she is to have a husband and son healthy, alive and well. But Marcia wasn't always like this. In fact, Marcia could often had been described as someone who had great avarice within her life. She still classifies this as one of her many flaws. Someone who wished for much wealth and wanted many things for material gain. When she first started to look for suitors, she wanted to see herself as a wife of senatore, even so far as to wish the richest man would cast his eyes or would even want her even without all of the flirtations. But she also saw many other women in the city with the greatest dresses and even the large group of friends, she wanted that. No she craved to have that within her live. She seemed to have it in spades. It wasn't until that Marcia started to learn that the greatest of things wasn't in the material things or even with wealth. It was you had. It was the hard work that it took to get these things. Love. Happiness. Friendships. Even families. Of course, she still over time that she does wish for more for her son and husband. But she tries to put the values of family first, rather than the material things. Marcia is very loyal when it comes to her family. Her parents, her husband, son. But most importantly to her sisters, she loved them all very dearly. Though they may have their differences always, Marcia would always strive to be loyal and true in the best way possible. After Luciana's death, she tried to remain as close as she could to her sisters. But do not confuse the loyality within her heart as weakness, her loyality and love give her the utmost strength. Appearance Marcia was the eldest of her sisters and so, she was first placed within the pathway of suitors. Men would call her a 'gentle beauty.' Or ' a rose that only blossoms within the spring.' But Marcia as a young child was very small, if not dainty within her appearance. But as she grew? She blossomed into what those would call a sweet rose. She does not have a frail complexion but one of a mother of two. Her frame is not thin but rather of a well rounded figure. Having borne a son, her figure before having a child has changed some. What was petite was no plump was still well rounded hips that could provide more children if she and her husband were so lucky to manage it. She has long dark brown hair that reaches down her back. Often in public, it is braided into a long braid that often makes her hair look longer than shorter. But when removed from the confines, you will find beautiful curls that comes with it being tightened for all of those hours within a day. Her skin tone has darkened for a light complexion. Marcia and her family live off of the pension that her husband recieved from being a scholar so no fancy garments are on her. But however, she saves some for a market it day and likes to commission a dress that befits the station. Her favorite color is usually a dark blue as well as the color her husband loves on her. Now when it comes to facial features, Marcia has dark blue eyes of her father as well as her mother's nose. She does have good hygiene and tries to keep up the practice of staying clean while also making sure her son also keeps up with appearances as well. Marcia considers her makeup as sort of a natural beauty. She found ways to make her own blush and rogue if she can. She seldom wears it but when she does, she wears light blush and rouge to bring out her cheeks as well. Family Father: Marcus Maecilius Tullus (Alive) Mother: Aelia Tubero (Alive) Siblings: Maecillia Aelia (Alive) Maecilia Gaia - Alive Maecilia Luciana (Deceased) Maecillia Aelia (Alive) Spouse: ______ ( Name pending) Children: One boy. Extended family: Lucius Maecilius Tullus (Grandfather) - Deceased _________ Gaia - (Grandmother ) - Alive Maecilia Lucia (Aunt) - Deceased Manius Maecilius Tullus (Uncle) - Alive Gaia's husband and children Tiberius Furius Luscus (Brother in law, Aelia's husband) Furia Lucilla (Niece, Aelia's daughter) Other: History Marcia was the first born child and daughter of the family in which would follow four girls within the family. She would come to learn that life wasn't so easy for their family, given the massive dowry that their father would have to overcome. But Marcia would strive to always be humble as much as she possibly could. ( While also having a bit of avrice.) From a young age, Marcia was shown often to be loyal and supportive of her family. She promised her mother and father from an early age that she would always be sure to protect any of the sisters that would come after her. A trait that would always define Marcia was how much she loved her sisters. She would never stop loving them and protecting them. Though they had different interests at heart, they would still always find a way to come back to one another. When she was young enough to be taught, she would be given her schooling on how to become a proper Roman wife. The schooling took Marcia to heart as she did feel she had some avrice and hoped to be better than what the world's position would give her. Marcia would proven to be a woman who seemed to excel at her schooling with showing a true potential, even with the many suitors that came to her heart. Marcia also considered herself a lucky person as she also managed to gain a few friends from a social circle within her means or above hers. She would often be taken in by a senatore's daughter, given beautiful gowns and invitations to gathers in which she could be watched and meet her future husband. That was what it was about wasn't it? But ultimately, Marcia's heart would eventually shy away from wanting to marry to rise above or an equal status that would benefit her. She found herself showing that she could have heart and still remain a good roman wife. That and the fates seemed to have a different idea in mind for Marcia. That all changed the day that Marcia met the man who would eventually become her husband. They had met one day when she was out within the market with her sisters Gaia and Aelia. He had been a man who had very little to his name. It had been rumored he only had an infantry pension. Others said he was a tutor or even someone with the same profession. But Marcia knew the moment she met him that he struck her heart in a way not one man had been able to. His heart and the way he had his manner of life charmed her. Of course yes he was also handsome but Marcia wanted to look beyond that. She did. Eventually they started to get to know one another and over the time that they spent together, Marcia started to slowly fall in love of him. When talk of marriage happened, her father would first and foremost ask Marcia if this marriage and love was what she wanted. As Marcia's heart grew so did her mind. She did not care for being in an above class. She cared for love. Her future husband would have little amount to provide for them but Marcia was ever the more determined they would be able to pull it through. Such odds can overcome and Marcia's heart would never love another she felt. Choosing love, Marcia and her husband would then marry. Two months to the day, Marcia would give birth to their son. While still managing to care for their son, Marcia still tries to run a household while also keeping in touch with her family. That bond would never diminish and thankfully her husband did understand that. Marcia lost Luciana and it was the only time where she would weep so openly in front of her son. But the family bond would always grow above and beyond anything else. Emy | Pacific | Discord

    Septima Major

    Septima Major 15 | 21 May 59CE | Equite | None | Openminded | Wanted | Vanessa Morgan Personality. Septima Major has a bright outlook on life and truly believes the best about everyone, unless someone really goes out of their way to prove they are the opposite. This can make her seem very naïve, which she probably also is. It would be easy to take advantage of Septima Major, because she really just is a friendly and caring person, who would take in every stray dog or child she'd find on the streets... if she was allowed to. Sometimes she's perhaps too friendly? She likes other people and she wants them to like her. While she tries hard to study like her sister, she's not quite like that and often daydreams and she gets easily distracted. But she just likes to have fun and likes to make people smile. She's also very curious about boys and probably a lot more so than her sister - and she likes to talk to them. Appearance Septima Major stands just about 5'3" tall, just like her sister. The set of twins are very much alike in almost every way - they have the same, slender build and the same light brown and sometimes almost golden skin. Major however has blue eyes while her sister Septima Minor has green eyes. Her hair is usually dark brown, although it takes a lighter tone in the summer. She likes her beautiful long hair and will often try and have it hang loose or just have a few braids or twirls in it. If she has a hairstyle up on her head, she usually lets a few strands of hair fall down as her bangs. While her sister is more down to Earth in her style, Septima Major enjoys beautiful dresses made out of luxurious fabrics and with bright colors. She also enjoys clothes that she believes makes her appear more mature and shows off her hips and bosom. Septima Major is also a fan of jewelry and shiny things and will wear bracelets, large necklaces and pretty hair pieces. She doesn't paint her face much, as she doesn't want to look like some cheap whore, but a dark line around her eyes and a little extra red on her lips isn't too much, she thinks. Family Father: Gaius Septimus Tunisius (deceased 61 AD) Mother: Petronia Aquililla (deceased 61 AD) Siblings: Septima Minor (twin) Spouse: N/A Children: N/A Extended family: Grandfather: Gaius Petronius Aquilius, 70 (he’s like a father to her) Grandmother: Aurelia Paulina (deceased 72 AD) Aunts and other extended family: Petronia Aquila, 36 and her children: Gaius Petronius Aquilius Urianus, 15 years old, cousin but more like a brother Uriana Petronia, 10, like a sister, cousin but more like a sister Petronia Aquila Minor, 34 Petronia Scribonilla, 33 Petronia Aquiliana, 27 Other: History Septima does not really remember her parents - she was only two years old, when they were killed during the civil war in 61 AD. Septima Major along with her twin sister, Septima Minor, came to live with her grandfather, grandmother and all of her aunts and cousins that still resided in the same home. In 63 AD, when the twins were 4, the entire family moved to Rome. She does not remember much of her early childhood. Most of what she remembers are happy memories together with her sister and her cousin, Gaius, who is almost like a brother to her and she sometimes calls him the third twin, because he’s the same age as Septima and her sister. They were close as children, but now they are growing up, it's not quite the same anymore. Her grandparents became more or less like a new set of parents to Septima and her sister. She especially grew close with her grandmother, who liked to spend time with the young twins, now that all of her own children were more or less grown up. Septima loved watching Petronia get ready for a party, even though she couldn’t go. But she wanted to see how Septima got dressed and put on her jewels and made her hair look fine. To Septima Major, there was nothing more beautiful than Petronia ready to take on the world – despite her age, but to Septima, that didn’t matter. Sadly, in 72 AD, Petronia’s life was over and during a quiet night she passed away, surrounded by her family – including Septima, of course, who was embraced by her sister that night. Together with the rest of the family they mourned the passing of a great and caring woman. Septima was very sad and it took several weeks before she felt ready to face the world outside the domus again. But she watched her grandfather move on and understood that although he missed her too, you couldn’t keep on mourning forever. Septima made a vow to herself to make her grandmother proud of her as she grew up. Now it has been a few years and Septima is growing into a beautiful and friendly young woman. While she isn't really interested in history or philosophy or even religion, she's a quite feminine young woman. She feels more than ready to go to parties, ready to dress up and ready to meet someone. She’s naturally a kind and outgoing person, who likes to chat and loves gossip – but she’s been brought up well and believes the best about everyone. Now she knows her grandfather will be looking for a husband for her, and Septima Major only hopes that it’ll be someone young, handsome and influential… and nice too, please.

  5. Alaric Aetius Stilicho. 54 | 19th July 21CE | Equite| Praefectus Annonae | Heterosexual| Original | Kevin McKidd Personality. A man who both fought for and against the might of Rome. Alaric was once a Germanic Prince who fought against Rome. At one point; he was fiery, passionate, determined and wholeheartedly believed the Gods had chosen him to lead his people. In a fever dream from one of the rites, he had been told that he would sack Rome itself along with his brothers and lead his tribe to glory. He was reckless, ignoring the signs of what was and focused instead of what could have been. However, the Gods had different plans for him. When he was captured by Cneaus Flavius Alexander Germanicus and his world completely changed. Originally he was going to be sacrificed within the arena in a spectacle that would demonstrate the power of Rome. However, he discovered he had a daughter and she was brought to Rome. His actions would also determine her fate. He had heard whispers of the fate of his wife and knew the Roman way. An offer was given to him where he was given the chance to become Romanised. If he behaved, he would be able to see his daughter who he believed was his last kin and essentially gave up his pride to preserve her life. Now Alaric is reserved, only opening up once he knows someone well or he's been drinking. His knowledge of Latin has improved over the years to a part where he is fluent in the language, however, his accent remains and is noticeable. On occasion he will break into his native language although only when he is enraged or jovial and in good company. Alaric over the years has come to see Romans as his family, having married into Equite families and even befriending some of the men he had formerly fought against. While the man is cold killer on the battlefield, he is a warm father and honours the role he has. Alaric has a history of making friends with the most unlikely of men. Renius and Honorius, a men who he had fought against. Yet there was a distinct mark of respect between them. Now Marcus, his son-in-law, is one of his closest friends in Rome. Alaric is quiet, in private reserving his name for friends, family and close acquaintances and reserving his Roman name for people outside his family. However, once he is among his loved ones, he becomes incredibly chatty and will often makes a lot of cheesy jokes. He is generous, happy, and becomes brighter. He is able to handle a decent amount of drink well, and encourages others to do so. On occasion, he tells tall tales and sings during this time. He has ambition and joy in the growth of his family, with each of them considering themselves now to be fully Roman and not looking towards their father's past. He is protective of them, fearing for their safety in the fickle world of Rome and worries for their security. Alaric has recently heard of his own distant family members from his Germanic family and during his tour, he was fortunate to not have to face any of them. He fears meeting them face to face and realising that could have been. And finding out who he had lost when he begun his journey in becoming Roman. Appearance Alaric stands at 5'10ft tall. He has spent time keeping himself physically fit for battle, and often rides horses when he's outside the city itself. Alaric is often clean shaven and his copper coloured curls cropped short. Any body hair on his body is a similar colour as his head, his skin tends to remain paler than many of the native people in Rome and slowly his skin has become beige from his time in sunlight. Slowly as he's aged the copper has become specked with silver pepper, Military. The clothing typically worn by the Roman officer class. The red cloak of a soldier, a garment he had once despised with every core of his being is frequently seen around his shoulders. Nothing is particularly fancy, but everything is well-maintained and has been made to last as long as possible. At home. At home he wears a tunica and sandals during the warmer months of the year. While during the winter, he wears breeches beneath the tunica in order to keep the cold out. Official dealings. He wears the traditional tunica angusticlavia beneath a toga. Something he isn't exactly comfortable in.

Marcus Aelius Lentulus Major Aelia Lentula Adoptive father/brother-in-law: Fluvius Aetius Stilicho, 30s-40s, Deceased Marcus Aelius Lentulus - son-in-law History Alaric was born in the winter of 21CE in Germania, outside of Rome's borders to Queen Higrata and her husband, King Wulfstan. On the morning of his birth the sooth-sayers prophesied that he would bring bloodshed to their enemies, specifically Rome. Sacrifices were made in honour of their son. As he grew from a toddler to a boy, he learned how fight with weaponry in order to fulfill the prophecy and was raised to believe it was true. At this time the young man had not developed a sense of control. He was tall for his age, physically strong in battle, and with a fiery temperament. He fought with his parents against other rival tribes in order to expand the tribe's interests, or to bring them under the command of his father. Alaric's fate was finally sealed when another sooth-sayer appeared. This one was from another tribe and told him that she had a message from the Gods for him. With smoke, blood, fire and water they had begun the rites to begin the rhythmic chanting. She warned him of the past, the future, of women, of his own nature, and in the smokey haze she warned him that he would be known although he would forget his roots. "You will fight them, You will then call them brother, You will cut them, They will cut you, You will either consume them or they will turn you into them, Any revenge they want to take on you, they will take on your child. Victory! Alaric son of Wulfstan! Or you will suffer....." He did not believe her, and nor did he remember the fact until many years into the future. Alaric had been told. A foreshadowing of red, of chains, his blood would mingle with the foe. His mind would serve them rather than his heart. Over the following years that passed the threat of the prophecy slowly faded away from his mind. His mind was filled with the torment from his past. In 32-33CE, there were skirmishes with rival clans and tribes, bringing them under the confederation, and his mother gave birth to his brother and then in early 33AD, his sister, Argathe was born. 34- 38CE-- He spent the majority of his time developing skills and acting as a representative to the other neighbouring tribes. 39 - 41CE-- He met a young woman who is similar to him in appearance and temperament. He married Getrude. Battles neighbouring tribes for dominance and to further develop skill. It brings smaller tribes into the loose confederation and rule. Throughout this time be begins to raid into Roman territory. (Later in, 41CE) The fire and bravado filled him, consumed him. He screamed in fury as he tried to charge the Legate, to kill him would demoralise the remaining Romans and soon the men who followed him fell around him. The echo of their screams filled his ears, as they were slowly cut away and he was no longer able to see them. In his haze, he felt hands grab him and pull him down. Parts of his chest began to feel as though cold suddenly with hotter liquid spilling downwards, then another on his leg and the same hot liquid sensation. Although soon it passed into a dreamless sleep. He saw bloody images, shadows of both his own people and Romans, his parents spoke to him before they disappeared into the mist... gone forever..... gone. When he awoke he was chained up. He pulled on his chains and roared in his tongue to the gathered Romans. This was not what the Gods had promised him. "You will either consume them or they will turn you into them." Capture by the Roman Legate, Cneaus Flavius Alexander Germanicus in Rome's revenge, has his parents killed and his daughter is taken alive. Brought to Rome in chains. Weakened from the time enslaved, he had lost considerable muscle mass over the time and begins to question the Gods. Why did they let him fail? Was he not supposed to be bring terror to the Romans? Instead he was brought to Rome as a prisoner. (Late 41CE) Brought to Rome in chains, paraded through the streets of Rome as a captive and set to die in the arena. During the Triumph, he prayed to his Gods for protection and knew he would die. He wanted to die. 42CE-- Discovers Barbara still lives and is both terrified and overjoyed. He does not know what they intend to do with her, and becomes frightened by the prospect of what they would do to her. Would they kill her? Enslave her? Brutalise her? The thoughts run through his mind, plaguing him and forcing his spirit to recede. He is allowed supervised visits with Barbara. Always watched, with no privacy with his daughter and the thoughts of ending her life fills his mind. What if the Romans decided that they had grown bored with this prank? "Any revenge they want to take on you, they will take on your child." 43 - 45CE-- During these years he feels as though he is still in a sort of limbo. He learns from Romans who he has befriended more about the culture he is gradually forcefully being assimilated into. Whenever he manages during the rare times to see men of his tribe for news of his family. There is none. At this point, he plans to kill Caesar and the goal is not due to hatred of the man, but who he is as a symbol to the Romans. 46CE-- First Roman marriage to Aemilia Decima. While it unofficially Romanised him, the girl was young and her mind was not what it should have been. For many years he saw himself as her protector, trying to keep her safe both from him and from her families ambition. He is permitted to move into a Domus that he never truly considered his home, occasionally being able to see Barbara and still felt like he was in limbo with a sword hanging over his neck. He is confused about how he is beginning to see the other side of Romans. Mercy, friendship, and are showing themselves to be other than the decadent tyrants he was raised to believe they were. 47 - 49CE-- He began to learn Latin but never lost his distinctive accent. Over time he still feels stuck in an endless limbo and insecurity. During this time, he dreams of striking out against the 50CE--Aemilia Decima dies in childbirth and results in a stillborn son. It left him feeling desolate and he blamed himself for her death. While he was approached with marriage offers, he avoided them and found himself sinking into a depression over the loss. While he did not love her, he cared for her and the guilt resulted in nightmares, especially those of the past. 51-54CE Alaric is adopted into the Aetii-Stilichii clan by Fluvius Aetius Stilicho and marries Aetia Gala in 55CE. Barbara is permitted to come to live with them. He grows to love the chaotic family, and slowly his body and mind begins to heal. Something he finds himself 57CE Goes to Britannia as Primus Pilus, and serves honourably. Death of Fluvius & Gala (along with many of their other family members), becomes Paterfamilias of the Aetii-Stilichii clan. It takes him time to admit to the idea, although takes the role seriously and tries to maintain the family name and honour. Attends the Imperial banquet and feels incredibly out of place. Memories of his past goals fill him and he found himself unable to act when the young Caesar greets him. Has a moment to meet with the young Darius Caesar, yet does not know him particularly well. When Darius faints he fears the worst for Rome and the new home. 58CE, A fairly ordinary year for him. He speaks for Renius and defends him when rumours of his affair reach Rome. In 59CE marriage to Suetonia, a cousin of Renius' and her son Publius comes to live with them. He arranges a betrothal between Barbara and Publius, although avoids making the marriage official. Publius is a good boy and he thinks of him as a son. Although the memories of his daughter and the struggle in order to get her back was difficult, something he never wishes to endure ever again. He defends his friend Renius during his trial and is largely ignored. He promises to care for Publius and finds himself missing his friend a great deal. 60CE The birth of Alaricus Aetius Stilicho Minor fills him with boundless joy. A son. Unfortunately, this news is greeted with sadness as the death of Suetonia from complications in childbirth and mourns the passing of his spouse. Later on the news of Publius' death reaches them, giving the family more reason to mourn and the uncertainly of the future makes him more determined to protect his children. The years that followed where the upstart, Clemens, marries Rufia Flavia, he tries to find a way to protect both his family and offer her any assistance that he could possibly give. -- During (60-64CE) his daughter Barbara serves as the matron of the house, dealing with household matters and the general running of the place. In 66CE, the birth of his first grandson, Marcus Aetius Lentulus Minor, took place and left him a proud grandfather. He admired Seia for her determination to clear her ex husband's name, even against overwhelming odds and soon their friendship turns romantic. He marries her in 67CE and he feels himself blessed by the Gods. Later that year, Aetia Stilicha is born. It is the beginning of their happy life together. The following years were filled with happiness, prosperity, and slowly he has begun to become used to the comfort of his declining years. In 71CE he becomes the Praefectus Annonae and takes his occupation seriously. While he misses being in the military life, he pours himself into being a family man and into his occupation. In 72CE, the birth of his younger son, Titus Aetius Stilicho takes place and is the latest addition to their growing family. The year of 73CE was a peaceful and happy one.

    Titinia Novella

    Titinia Novella 32 | OCTOBER 30TH 44 AD | FEMALE | EQUITE | BROTHEL MADAM | BISEXUAL | MERVE BOLUGUR http://www.olay.com.tr/d/news/39097.jpg Personality. From her childhood, Titinia had proven to be a cunning and intelligent girl. Quick witted and sly. A lack for conventionality. Her father wasn't sure where she got it from, it certainly wasn't from the stubborn, stoic man that had provided half of her genetics. And her mother was the kindest, most soft spoken woman that could be found in Rome. It would be these traits that prove to her husband that his little wife as more than just a typical Roman wife. She is also a caring, compassionate woman when she needs to be. A doting mother, an attentive brothel madam. She takes care of the brothel's workers as lovingly as she does her brood of children. This loving compassion extends to her sisters and their children as well. Marcellus and their loves know another side that isn't shown to the rest of the world. The passionate lover who has more than her fair share kinks to go with their playtimes.  Appearance There is nothing remarkably pretty about Titinia. She is not plain but at the same time, no poet would ever write praise about her beauty. Her tan complexion offers some hints of foreign influences on her bloodline, and following her mother's line back you will find the mingling of Egyptian in just that. She is of dark hair and eyes, the first of which falls to her waist in gentle waves of black silk. Her status does not provide her the best of the best, however she has become an expert at making what they can afford look just as good. In the warm seasons, it's not uncommon for her style of dress to be nearly sheer and weightless, heat was never a friend to her and the lesser and thinner the fabric she can get the better for her.

She was a bright child, and soaked up the knowledge given to her with the desire of wanting more. - Her mother dies when Titinia is 13 and her father began to seek marriages for his daughters. Meanwhile Marcus had began to rack up debt with the Syndicate to fund his own spending. The rest of her teenage years went by rather smoothly. There was no further upset. --- Around August of 63 AD, she marries the leader of The Syndicate gang to pay off her father's debts to the gang, a fair trade in his mind to get rid of his worthless daughters. Its a hard early start of a relationship to a man she never met before, and it strips down a good bit of her bubbly personality. The wedding night and the night following borders on rape. --- Forty weeks to the day of her marriage, in 64, Titinia gives birth to her first child. A son to be named after his father. The couple's relationship improves significantly and they begin to trust each other. --- By their second anniversary, the couple trusts each other fully.

  7. Barbara Stilicha 33 | 15 September, 39 AD | Equite | Wife/Mother | Heterosexual | Canon | Eleanor Tomlinson Personality. As a child she was shy and mostly kept to herself due to language and culture barriers, however with good tutors and her return to her father and his adopted family (the Stilicho’s) Barbara fully came into her own. Although Barbara was born in Germania, she is as much a Roman as any woman her age. Barbara has always been a caretaker- first with her father as they both figured out the Roman society together and then learning from each of her step-mothers. Each woman brought a different skill set to the table and Barbara absorbed all that she could from each of them. One thing she learned had to do with the struggles of childbirth and raising a family. If there was one thing her father couldn’t teach her it was this and he was always looking for female role models for her. Barbara watched as each of her step-mothers, except for her current step-mother Seia, either die in childbirth or grief due to loss. With each loss, her fear of her own loss in childbirth increased slightly, but also her strength and determination to see each subsequent sibling grow to adulthood. She, along with her mothers, have had a hand in raising each of her siblings- especially Alaricus as he was an infant/toddler during the years when her father worked for the Military/Praetorians under the Imperial Family, Emperor Cyprianus and Clemens and then the years that followed that. With the birth of her own two children, she has beaten her fear of dying in childbirth and now looks forward to raising them to be proper Roman children. Her pride and joy are her children and she celebrates every day that they won’t have to go through the childhood she did- being captured in her homeland, brought to a strange foreign land and held from her father, their grandfather, until he acquiesced to Roman control. Instead she knows that her children are being raised in a loving supportive family and have all that they need… That being said…her children are slowly learning not to push their mother’s buttons. Barbara inherited the classic ‘red hair temper’ from her father, and while she loves her children, if/when they do something wrong the disciplinarian comes out. Appearance Barbara knew from a young age that she was going to be taller than most Roman women. Her Germanic heritage combined with the height of father indicated early that she was not going to be short. Reaching her father’s jawline when standing tall Barbara topped out at just under 5’5”. She has retained the slim/medium build of her childhood but has smoothly made the shift to womanhood. Barbara inherited her copper/brownish curly hair from her father and it is generally braided back or pinned up to keep it out of the way. The other indicator of her Germanic heritage is the fair skin- if she spends a decent amount of time in the sun she will lightly tan or freckle with the worst case scenario being a light burn but her tolerance for the sun has greatly improved. When it comes to fashion, she tends to fall into the practical category, that being comfortable sandals, a chiton/stola and palla as well as a minimal amount of jewelry but when she does go out for more formal occasions she will dress the part. Family Father: Alaric Aetius Stilicho Step-Mother: Seia Imperia Siblings: Alaricus Aetius Stilicho Minor (Suetonia Aelia) Aetia Stilicha (Seia Imperia) Titus Aetius Stilicho (Seia Imperia) Imperia (Step-sister by Seia Imperia) Publius Aetius Stilicho-deceased (step-brother by Suetonia) Spouse: Marcus Aelius Lentulus Children: Son- Marcus Aelius Lentulus Major Daughter- Aelia Lentula Extended family: -- Previous mother - Suetonia Aelia, 31, Died in childbirth -- Previous mother - Aetia Gala, Age, Died of grief --Previous mother - Aemilia Decima, 15, Died in childbirth --Biological mother - Gertrude, Late teens, Died through conflict --Paternal Uncle - Thorin, current ruler of the Tribe. --Paternal Aunt - Argathe, married to another chieftain. Other: History CHILDHOOD [39-51 AD]: Barbara (Brunhilde) was born during a rather troublesome period- her mother brought her in to the world on a mid-September day and although she is a daughter there is a joy at her arrival. She was a strong willed baby right from birth and it was no surprise that she survived the winter. Her mother became pregnant again two years later but she was unable to survive the pregnancy losing her life and that of the child. Barbara was raised by her nurse and her father when he was home, but this arrangement was not to last. Later that year (41 AD) her father was captured in a skirmish and their home was raided. It was decided that her father, instead of being killed, was to be forced to convert to the Roman ways and Barbara was brought along in case he needed enticement or coercion. Unable to speak any Latin, she was dragged to Rome under the close watch of soldiers. When she arrived in Rome, she was taken to Manius Leontius Sabucius who was orchestrating the entire situation on behalf of Emperor Claudius. Fearing that he would throw her into somewhere horrible, she was relieved instead when he not only placed her with an adoptive family but took it upon himself to school her in Latin so she could catch up to children her own age. It was at this time that her name was changed from her Germanic name, Brunhilde, to Barbara. Her father is informed of her presence in Rome and told that if he ever wants to see her again and keep her out of harm’s way he will do what he is told- which was to fully convert/adopt the Roman ways. Father and daughter are allowed supervised visits- long enough to enjoy each other’s company but short enough to miss the time apart. Her father, as part of his conversion was married to a Roman woman but Barbara only remembers a little bit about her as she was young and life was confusing. His first roman wife died- Barbara wasn’t told why. SEPTEMBER, 39 AD -- Birth– A daughter (Brunhilde) is born to Alaric (Prince of the Sweboz) and his wife Gertrude 41 AD-- Brunhilde’s mother dies in childbirth and she is raised by her nurse/her father when he is home 41 AD—Roman soldiers raid her family’s palace and take her captive. 42AD—Her conversion from Germanic princess to Roman child begins (her Father discovers her presence in Rome- they are allowed supervised visits) 46AD—Her father is married to a Roman woman but Barbara doesn’t really get a chance to know her all that well as she still isn’t permanently united with her father TEENAGE TO EARLY ADULT [52-60 AD]: During their time apart her father was fully converted and began to serve in the army. He became friends with Fluvius Aetius Stilicho and he was formally adopted into the Stilicho family by Fluvius. At the same time as he was adopted, he was married to Fluvius’ sister Gala. Barbara was still under the guardianship of Manius and it turned out Manius did not overly like Fluvius and wanted to get back at him. In an attempt to destroy FLuvius’ tight-knit family Manius challenged his gladiator to a fight with one of Fluvius’ slaves who was also a talented fighter. The prize of the fight was Barbara- if Manius’ gladiator won she would remain with her adoptive family permanently and if Fluvius’ slave won, she would be returned to her father. Barbara wasn’t allowed to watch the fight, but it must have gone in Fluvius’ favour as she was returned to her father and therefore adopted into Fluvius’ family. Fluvius, in his role as Magister, was sent off to sea and while he was travelling he was attacked and killed. Gala, after receiving word that her brother had been killed at sea lost the will to live and died in childbirth & from a broken heart. Her father did his best to raise her but he was actively serving in the Roman Army. Luckily Fluvius had a large family that lived together in the same Domus and so her father had no concern about her safety. As the years went on the family changed due to more members dying or various other circumstances and suddenly her father found himself deployed with the military and there no one to care for Barbara. He had become close friends with Renius Atellus and approached him asking if he would take Barbara in while he was away but Renius had an even better solution. Renius’ cousin Suetonia had just come out of mourning and Renius was looking to arrange a new marriage for her. A proposal was made between Alaric and Suetonia, and after a brief courtship the two were married. Barbara loved her new stepmother- Suetonia came to the marriage with a son of her own and both families blended together very well. So well in fact that there was discussion of a betrothal between Barbara and Publius (her new step brother- son of Suetonia) but that was not to be as Publius was also attacked in killed while serving in Brittania. In 60 AD, her stepmother Suetonia conceived and gave birth to Barbara’s half brother whom was name for her father. The joy that the family felt was not to last though as Suetonia succumbed to the childbirth and Barbara lost the mother that she had been the closest to. With this subsequent loss, her father returned permanently to Rome and joined the Praetorian Guard so that he could be close to home but still useful. 55-57 AD—Returned permanently to her father adopted by Fluvius Stilicho following her father’s marriage to Gala who dies within the year (57 AD) 59 AD—Her father is remarried to Suetonia & a betrothal between Publius (Suetonia’s biological son & Barbara is discussed but not formalized as he later dies) 60 AD – Birth of younger brother Alaricus Aetius Stilicho Minor, loss of Suetonia in childbirth ADULTHOOD [60-73]: At 21 years old in 60 AD, as the eldest daughter and with the loss of Suetonia, Barbara found herself in the role of Domina running the household as well as caring for her younger brother. Her father should have been preparing a marriage proposal for her, however before a marriage could be arranged life seemed to get busy. Her father was an active member of the Praetorian guard and spent many of his hours working. In January 62 someone set the grain stores on fire. Although the fire was put out quickly, the loss of the grain was hard for many Romans. There were concerns with raids and famine but the Praetorian guard and local militia kept it locked down so that there were no riots. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the Imperial landscape was also changing. Following the death of Darius, Junus and other members of the Imperial household, there was a noticeable shift in power and Cyprianus stepped into the seat of power. This didn’t directly impact Barbara other than her father continued to work very hard as he rose through the Praetorian ranks. Barbara continued to live in her father’s household raising her younger brother as her father had not remarried. It wasn’t until the Rise of Clemens in 62 AD that her family was severely affected. She should have been married and while none had been arranged for her yet, many of her friends were having their marriage contracts broken as families were destroyed in the uprising and the chaos that followed. This was the first time she could really remember Rome being in an unofficial lockdown. Her father was heavily involved in keeping the peace and there were many days where she wouldn’t even see him. Although Barbara kept in contact with her friends, she really turned her focus even more into her family and their household. She was determined to get her family through in one piece. After the fall of Clemens and the immediately ascension of Quintus Alexander, Rome and her family returned to a time of relative peace. People were once again able to look on the bright side of life and it was at this point that her father realized not only was he unmarried but his 21 year old daughter was also unmarried. Her father, thanks to the influence of Fluvius, had been helping a young woman name Seia Imperia and the two fell in love and with encouragement from Seia, her father finally arranged a marriage for Barbara. He weighed a couple of candidates, finally settling on Marcus Aelius Lentulus who had served underneath him in the Praetorian guard. Her father had promised that he would match her with someone that would treat her properly and he kept his word. When Barbara discovered shortly after her marriage that she was pregnant, in 66 AD, she was hesitant to announce the pregnancy until she was clearly showing as the women in her family had lost their lives during childbirth. Her fears were unfounded as in late 66 AD Barbara went into active labour. With Seia by her side she gave birth to a son who was named after his father. This joyful blessing sealed the family bond between Seia and Barbara, and she was overjoyed when her father announced that they were to be married. Seia joined the family in 67 AD and with that, she brought her daughter Imperia from another marriage into the household. The Lentulus household became even more blessed when in 68 AD Barbara gave birth to a daughter who was name Aelia Lentula. With two successful pregnancies and healthy children Barbara felt blessed to have finally broken the cycle of dying. 60-64 AD—Lives in her father’s household, functioning as the Domina of the household- helping their elderly governess raise her younger brother (there is a 21 year age difference) and making sure things run smoothly while her father works especially during hard times (January 62 AD- destruction of grain stores due to arson, Rise/Fall of Clemens and the ensuing Civil War etc) 65 AD—Finally with Rome settled under the rule of Quintus Alexander, her father finally has time to focus on the family and arranges a marriage for Barbara to Marcus Aelius Lentulus who served in the Praetorian Guard underneath her father. January 66 AD—Barbara learns she is pregnant and later that year gives birth to a son Marcus Aelius Lentulus Minor 67 AD- Her father married Seia Imperia and with this marriage Barbara gained a new step-mother as well as a step-sister (Imperia) April 68 AD – A daughter is born to Barbara- with two successful pregnancies under her belt, if she has anymore children she will leave it up to the Gods. She is more than happy to even have two considering the number of stillborns/deaths from child birth that plagued her family. JENN | EST | PM/DISCORD

Who was an ally to Rome. It is unknown whether this is true or not. The family became citizens through service through the Roman war machine or were merchants who sold Egyptian linen and silks from the East to Rome. The demand with the wealthy meant the family continued to rise upwards. The family have estates in North Africa and a respectable home in Rome itself. Most of the family will be made into wanteds at some point. History Gaius was born in 4CE as the second born child and firstborn son of Gaius Petronius Aquilius Major and Scribonia Afrikana. His family was stable, hard working and determined that he would be a constructive member of Roman society. The family had originally gained their citizenship through military service, and he learned about coinage, economics, fabrics (quality for the family business), and he tended to this side of things until he was seventeen years of age. While he wanted to join the army, the family business was considered to be more important and he stayed behind. He married Aurelia Paulina in late 37CE,and his eldest daughter, called Petronia Aquila was born in 38CE. In late 40CE, the family had the birth of another child to welcome into the family and he was happy. In 41CE his third daughter was brought into the family. He visited a sooth-sayer who told him he would be blessed with happiness, healthy daughters, and a long life. Yet he would not father any sons. Always always his mind would go back to the time when he met people from distant lands and thought more about them. their lives, and their stories. They were largely successful, and during this period of time he was blessed with many children (and later there would be grandchildren). In 44CE, Maurentia was now made into a Roman province and removed from the Kingship of old. Fortunately, his family had been romanised for several generations and their wealth had elevated them into becoming Equites. His grandfather had served and had given the family citizenship. Other time, the last of his daughters were married with his strictfulness slowly giving way to warmth, happiness and a desire for enjoyment. In 52CE the business enterprise in Aegyptus was lessened due to the growing nationalism that slowly died down, and was restored. Other than that, those years were mostly uneventful for him and his family. The years of 53CE and 54CE were mostly uneventful for Gaius, although there were incidents when minor issues would impact the amount of trade they were able to conduct. Through the years he had heard about the conflicts of Rome, normally from a distance from the home in Lepis Magna and felt blessed to not be caught in the middle of it. The family had history in Lepis Magna and patroned many of the buildings within the city. In the conflict of the civil war in 61CE, his daughter and his son-in-law were both killed with his two granddaughters coming to live with him. The family mostly resided there until 63CE when Gaius came to Rome to reside there to manage the family business while his nephew, manages that side from Lepis Magna or Alexandria. The family had now been living in Rome for nearly a decade, still maintaining trade and the connections that had been made. 64CE to 71CE were mostly uneventful for him other than expanding the buildings, and being about to spend time with his wife, Aurelia. Their home was a place of warmth, laughter and joy. The extended members of the family lived with them. With all of his daughters married, it was his duty to ensure all of his grandchildren would marry well and go on to live happy and virtuous lives. For close to ten years he managed the family business. Slowly and surely, age began to take a toll on his body and mind. His eldest daughter and her husband began to take more of a prominent role in the family business. In 72CE, the Gods finally took his wife into the afterlife. Aurelia had passed away during the night in her sleep surrounded by her family and loved ones. Gaius (and the rest of the family) paid for a funerary monument for her along the Via Appia among the greatest members of Rome. Since then, his eldest daughter and son-in-law took over the family business, running things and giving him more time to relax in his twilight years. Since he had no sons of his own. He formally adopted his grandson who would inherit the family business. This extra time and loneliness from not having his wife with him meant he had more time to ponder and spend time with his grandchildren. In 73CE, he decided now was the time to begin his quest to learn more about the various people of Rome. Gaius began meeting with people and writing about them -- any rank. All their stories needed to be told. Gothy | GMT+11 | PM or Discord
