  1. Set right after Judge and Jury Pinaria had also been hurt by their attacker, but Ovinia was younger and seemed to take it worse. Maybe he had been worse with her. Pinaria escaped with a cut on her arm, thanks to Spurius, but others might not have been so lucky. And Pinaria was strong. Or she tried to be. She had to be, for her son’s sake. Now, she had to be, for Ovinia’s sake. So she’d gone to her after the younger woman’s outburst, and Ovinia looked at her and Pinaria led her away towards a place where they could sit. Ovinia was stuttering with a weak voice… "He...he hurt me. I-I wanted him to under-understand what it felt like..." Pinaria nodded, “I know. He hurt me too. And I’m sure they will make him understand.” She promised with a firm, yet soft voice, while looking at Ovinia. The other woman seemed pretty shaken after what just happened and Pinaria was good at comforting other people. “But you… have to make sure you don’t fall to his level. You’re better than he is. You’re more than he is. You’re… not a killer.” At least she hoped not. She didn’t think so. @Sara
  2. February 77 AD, the Gardens of Maecenas It had been Lucius' idea to come to the Gardens of Maecenas, for some reason of his own, and Gaius had agreed, it was neutral enough territory after the various conversations and disagreements they'd had over the last few months, culminating in Lucius' finally leaving the household to pursue his crazy idea of joining the vigiles. Apart from that, Gaius wasn't entirely sure why he was walking in the Gardens of Maecenas in February; the last time he'd visited one of Rome's public gardens in the winter, the girl had finally decided to call it off. Not that it had ever really been 'on', so to speak, but he hadn't pursued the matter and her father had been willing to let it drop even if he had the right to carry on making arrangements for the marriage. Gaius was rather glad he hadn't; he would rather not marry Ovinia if marrying him would make her unhappy. And there was the complication of his brother - the two of them knew each other somehow, that had been glaringly clear from the way they'd interacted at that dinner, although he hadn't been able to get anything out of Lucius about how, and of course it wasn't something he could have asked Ovinia. "So, how are you finding life with the vigiles?" he finally asked, pulling his cloak a little tighter around his shoulders; he had elected not to wear his senatorial tunic and toga for this informal outing, but was comfortably clothed in a dark green woollen tunic with a warm cloak over his pallium. @Chevi @Atrice
  3. Late September, 76 AD It was late September and fall was definitely coming upon Rome now. The weather wasn’t too cold yet, but it was not summer either. Pinaria pulled her palla closer around her and looked over her shoulder after her servant, Gaia Lucia. The woman was actually a freedwoman, but she and Pinaria had not yet parted ways and she wasn’t sure she wanted to. At the same time, she was not sure if it was actually love between her and Lucia, but they cared for each other. Deeply. And Gaia Lucia came with her everywhere. Soon it would be dark and they needed to head home from the temple. Lucia suggested a shortcut through an alley between a few streets, said she knew it. Lucia said it wasn’t entirely safe though, so they should hurry. Pinaria nodded and followed the former slave. But Lucia hurried a little too much and suddenly she was too far away. It had become darker as they walked and suddenly, Pinaria did not feel safe at all. She tried to call for Lucia, who had disappeared around a corner. Pinaria stopped for a moment to call for her servant again. That’s when she heard it, in the silence behind her. Footsteps coming in her direction. She looked over her shoulder to see a hooded figure some way behind her, “Hello? I don’t mean to bother you… I’ll be on my way…” She said and moved on, but the person kept following her. Suddenly he was right behind her and held a blade to her throat. Pinaria froze and squeezed her eyes shut. She thought about her son. This was not happening, was it? It was... “Please, don’t hurt me… I have a son…” She said, and yet she felt the man pull her closer, “What do you want? I don’t have any money. I gave them all to the temple. You can have my necklace…” She suggested to the stranger behind her, “I don’t care about such things…” He whispered back to her and she felt the blade cut into her throat and stinging pain of it. He’d cut the side of her throat. It wasn't deep, but enough to make her bleed. She felt his other hand move up. He touched the wound and got her blood on his fingers. “Wha… what do… you want?” She stuttered, afraid, but she heard nothing but his breathing as he touched the wound again and smeared the blood between his thumb and his other fingers. Suddenly she heard her name and she dared to look up. It was Gaia Lucia! Lucia came back for her! The man behind her saw it too. He let go of her, but not before he also cut her arm through her palla as he pulled back. Then he quickly ran away in the other direction. Pinaria ran towards her servant and fell into her embrace. She felt her heart pounding in her chest. Together the two women made the rest of the way out into the more open street again. Now, however, it was entirely dark. And there was still a bit of a way to get home. "I'll run for help!" Gaia Lucia promised Pinaria and tired as she was from the sudden incident, she didn't argue before it was too late. Suddenly she was alone again! What if that maniac came back? What in the name of Hades did he want? With a sigh she dared to take her eyes off the street for a moment, as she leaned against a nearby wall and moved the palla away from her arm to inspect the bleeding wound.
  4. Mid-August, 75AD Horatia sipped her wine, eyeing the dancers with amusement and interest. It was different, for a party, she'd grant their host that. Usually there were poetry recitals or dramatic performances and such and she had to admit it got a little...dry after a while. She was pleased that Antonia had spared no expense tonight. The dancers were from some Eastern province judging by the music that accompanied them and were mesmerising. She stood alone in the sea of people invited tonight; many she knew, others she did not. Aulus was sequestered away somewhere by the husband of their host discussing politics or his upcoming (potential) appointment to the Consulship and she cast him a wry, amused smile every now and again over the heads of other people gathered in the circle to watch the dancers. She'd also, much like Antonia, spared no expense for this evening. She was wearing a stola as befit her rank and marital status, but it was fine garment of silk in the colour 1, almost akin to a burning sunset and it was left open at the arms - being held together by ornate gold clasps instead of stitched shut. Her vibrant red hair had been intricately braided and set up although not in the hyper-fashionable way some ladies piled it atop their heads. Her palla, draped over her shoulder and and arm, and the tunica she wore underneath her stola were a paler yellow. She wore minimal jewellery, as she customarily did, but the bracelets she wore glinted in the lamp light being cast across the triclinium. Whilst she didn't necessarily enjoy these sort of functions the way some social butterflies did, she always made an exceptional effort. She was the wife of one of the most powerful men in the city, and she had to look the part. Besides, she wasn't an old woman by any means and it was nice (in an odd sort of way) to have aspirational or a few longing looks cast her way. She tried to ignore said glances as she stood watching the dancers, her back leaning against a pillar that opened up into the garden. She smiled to herself at the spectacle and murmured a positive comment at the lady stood to her side, unknown to her. It was only when somebody called her name did she pull her eyes away from the rhythmic movements. She recognised Pinaria Gaia, they moved in equivalent circles although she wasn't a close friend by any means. She offered a gentle smile. "Pinaria, it's lovely to see you." She leant in to kiss the woman on the cheek, "You look lovely." TAG: @Atrice 1 The colour of her stola is this colour dress from Horatia's face claim in the Borgias, when they dressed up as Romans!
  5. Outside the Circus Maximus, the crowds were swarming and increasingly smellier as they began to bump shoulders under the hot sun while trying to push into the complex and its seating arrangements. Naturally, Valeria had very little interest in watching the gladiatorial games, much less the races, and household names like ‘Menelaus’, ‘Bassus’, or ‘Marcellus’ of the Whites evaded her. She often left such things to Titus to take Publius, but she thought of it as a treat for her children, a spur of the moment decision following a morning’s visit to her father’s. The younger two particularly would find excitement amongst the crowds, charged by the social energy and adventures that circled the track over and over again. Flacca, on the other hand, was at the age where she seemed to want to be elsewhere and instead carried reading along with her. Regrettably, it was not the great Landicus, but it was still something that made Valeria smile. Although years ago, when Valeria had done the same, would have made her father hiss a “put that away”. It was poor manner to read in company, after all, but to Valeria, it was poor form to be unread. As they tracked through the crowds towards where they could make their entrance, Valeria instinctively held onto her son’s shoulder to keep him close, while her eldest was carrying her squirming sister, who kept trying to climb over Flacca’s shoulder to point out people or animals in the surrounding area. As Valeriana pointed in one direction with a “look!”, Valeria followed as she swept through some of the people spread out and around the stadium and caught the familiar face of Pinaria Gaia. “We’ll go inside in just a moment,” Valeria told her children, only to be met with Publius’s complaint. “But our seats!” “But Pinaria Gaia!” Valeria complained back, mimicking her son’s whine, before she added “it’ll only be a minute” even though in momspeak, that essentially meant the same as when she created a side-trip to the markets with her children and had them bouncing from foot to foot in exhaustion as she turned minutes into hours of looking at fabrics and jewels. As Valeria approached, she tilted slightly as if to get a good look at Pinaria as she excitedly opened her arms. “Fancy seeing you here,” she greeted her with a laugh. @Atrice
  6. Early June, 75 AD Of course she knew she needed to find a new husband - or at least try. That was a woman’s role and lot in Rome. Grow up, get married, get kids… if you lose your husband, get another or your family will dislike you. She didn’t want to be disliked. And she did want to find a man who would marry her, for how else was Gaius to have a proper father to raise him? Her brother did well, of course, but he had a wife and kids of his own too and Gaius was just a nephew and not his own child. She needed a man of her own. But she also needed Lucia. She hoped her future husband would accept her. Pinaria could not imagine marrying and never embrace Lucia again, like she had done it the past year. She wanted it all. And somehow, she’d have it. That’s why she had gone to the temple today – to pray and make a sacrifice, so that a good man of honor and bravery would somehow be hers. After all, as long as she was married, she was a good wife and mother. She did not spend time alone with other men and certainly, if she did, they never touched. Not that she didn’t know Gaius had not been as good as her at that; and he didn’t even hide it, but she didn’t blame him. She didn’t love him, but they were friendly with each other. And they were wife and husband and a wife did not sleep around. She had to make sure her kids were also his kids. But now that he was gone, surely there was no problem with bedding someone else and especially not when the other person was a woman, who could not make her with child. It was alright, in her opinion. She hoped the gods would agree. Quietly she left the temple and found a marble bench nearby to sit on and ponder, while looking up at the beautiful structure in front of her. She knew the gods had their own strange ways and that humans were probably nothing else than toys to them. She had lost so many people in her lifetime. People she cared about or should have cared about. She never even knew her mother! She hoped that she would not lose Lucia and that the next person she came to care about, would not disappear on her either. She barely noticed that someone else joined her on the bench, until she moved to stand and her palla was stuck underneath the other person. It was somehow ripped off her and she stood with just her chiton on and a very surprised look on her face, "Excuse me!" She said, clearly upset, while reaching for her palla to get it back and put it on. This was very inappropriate!
  7. Gaia Lucia Suggested Face claim: Jenna Lind (but feel free to find another)Age & Birth Position. 25 years old - b. 50 ADPosition: Freedwoman and servantParents: Up to you!Other family: Up to you! Orientation: BisexualPersonality: Usually caring and outgoing - but also outspoken and does not always take no for an answerHistory: Gaia Lucia is Pinaria Gaia's former body slave. She was owned by Pinaria's late husband, Gaius Gratius Varro and probably came into his service a few years before he married. Her parents were free but enslaved and Lucia was born as a slave. In 69 AD, Gaius Gratius Varro married Pinaria Gaia and Lucia was given to her to become her body slave. Pinaria and Lucia quickly became close friends and Lucia has been Pinaria's confidante ever since. They were only close friends though, Pinaria never cheated on her husband, although he did on her. When Gaius died, his slaves were freed, but Lucia (as she was known before) stayed with Pinaria as her personal servant. Lucia soothed Pinaria after Gaius' death and the two became lovers, although secretly of course. Lucia also gets along well with Pinaria's 4 year old son, Gaius. They now all live with Pinaria's brother.Ultimate Goal: To have children of her own.Other information: Pinaria Gaia's applicationWho to contact: Atrice
  8. PINARIA GAIA 28 | March 10th, 48 AD | Patrician | Noble lady | Bisexual | Canon | Rebecca Ferguson Personality. As so many others, Pinaria Gaia is a woman with many virtues – and vices, of course. Before becoming a mother, she could be quite proud and she probably still is, to a point. But after becoming a mother, she has perhaps become even more of a motherly type, very caring and kind. Mostly to her son of course, for whom she would do anything it takes, as long as he is happy and safe. She wants him to have a proper father who can influence him in a good direction. She is very friendly and open-minded and always ready to make new and useful acquaintances, especially now that her husband died and her brother urges her to find another. Pinaria Gaia is however also a bit of a jealous type and she can be annoyed, if she does not get what she wants fast enough. This whole thing began already when she was a young girl and had to flee Rome instead of entering social life as women had done before her. When she came back, she threw herself into it, only to have her younger sister land a very prominent husband before she was able to do the same. After that, Gaia was pressured even further to marry and that’s how she ended up with Gaius. He was a proper and respected man, but still not quite what she had imagined for a husband. She envies her sister her good marriage and her many children, even sons. Gaia has not been that fortunate. On the other hand, she has learned the hard way that nothing lasts forever and this can be read as her being a bit pessimistic. She keeps these thoughts quiet however, but they are always there. The thoughts come from her childhood and youth; first her mother died before she barely knew her and her second mother didn’t last long with her father either. Her sister died in childbirth and she also lost her father. She knows everyone’s going to die and nothing lasts forever. Of course she was sad when her husband died, but she also wasn’t surprised and now she hopes to move on as long as possible and hopes that there will be no more losses in her near family for many years. She is religious and makes sure to make sacrifices to the gods, hoping they will grant her fortune so she can have what she wants in life. Appearance Gaia is not among the most petite Roman women, nor is she among the tallest. Standing at 5’5” she is a striking figure, slender and with dark brown hair, curled or straight depending on the mood and the occasion. Her eyes are a light blue-grey color and her face and expression often soft and friendly. She likes to dress in very toned-down colors when she is at home, but when participating in any social event she likes to make an impression. At such occasions she will wear striking colors like crimson, blue and green, which goes well together with her dark hair. Family Father: Publius Pinarius Natta (deceased) Mother: Lartia Gaia (deceased) Step-mother: Annthea Alexandra (deceased) Siblings: Pinaria Natta (deceased) Publius Pinarius Natta [Minor], 40 years old Pinaria Lucilla, 37 years old Pinaria Livilla, 32 years old Pinaria Lucretia, 25 years old (played by Anna) Spouse: Gaius Gratius Varro (deceased 74 AD) Children: Gaius Gratius Varro Minor (b. 71 AD) Extended family: - Related to the Imperial family/Flavi Alexanderii via her stepmother and her sister's husband - Children and spouses of her siblings Other: Former body slave/freedwoman/lover: Gaia Lucia History 48 AD – Pinaria Gaia is born as one of the last children to her parents. 50 AD – both Lartia Gaia, her mother and her grandmother dies. Gaia can’t understand why her mother is gone, but in the present, she barely remembers her. 58 AD – Gaia is now 10 years old and her father finally remarries a certain Annthea Alexandra. The marriage is however short and they soon divorce again. Her father does not remarry. 62 AD – During the civil war, Gaia is in her early teens and had hoped to soon enter the proper social life of women in Rome. The civil war broke out however and the family retreated from Rome. Her eldest sister died from childbirth the same year, leaving especially the sisters with a great loss. 63 AD – Alexander returned to Rome in triumph and soon Gaia’s family did the same. Nothing was the same again, after the escape and everything that happened, including the death of the eldest of the sisters. Gaia, now 15 years old, tries her best to procrastinate and distract herself. 65 AD – Publius Pinarius Natta dies of pneumonia during the winter. Her brother, Publius Pinarius Natta Minor, becomes the new Pater Familias at the age of 31. It feels a bit weird to now have her brother make all the decisions, but Gaia soon becomes used to it. 66 AD – Gaia finishes mourning her father and hopes to marry, as she is now 18 years old and eager to start her own family, with her own family more or less gone. Her brother Publius helps searching for a husband. 69 AD – Her sister, Pinaria Lucretia, marries Marcus Aemilius Scaurus Alexander. It's a good match and Gaia feels a little jealous that her sister managed to land such a prominent husband. With her other sisters married and even the youngest, Gaia feels more pressure to marry. Later the same year, Gaia finally marries Gaius Gratius Varro, who is 15 years older than she, but kind and friendly. They don’t love each other, but there is respect. As a wedding gift, Gaia gets her body slave, Lucia, whom she soon develops a close friendship with. Lucia becomes her confidante. Gaia is however a good and kind wife to her husband and never cheats on him, although he probably does on her. 71 AD – Pinaria Gaia gives birth to her first and only child so far, a son named Gaius Gratius Varro 74 AD – Her husband dies in the early spring after a hunting accident and his slaves are freed upon his death. Gaia’s old body slave, now named Gaia Lucia, stays with her however and still serves as her body servant. After Gaius' death, they have become even closer than before and develop a relationship. After Gaius died, Pinaria Gaia has become more religious and has not participated in social events since. She and her son moved in with her brother, Publius Pinarius Natta, again. 75 AD – Gaia and her son still live with her brother, who urges her to start socializing again and make friends and find a new husband. And so Gaia finally decides to enter social life once more. The rest will be history. Atrice | GMT+1 | Discord
