  1. Apollodorus 22 | 7 March52AD | Slave | Gladiator - Cestus | Pansexual | Original | Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson Personality & History Apollodorus is the son of a gladiator and one of the household slaves. He grew up in servitude and considers it to be the norm. When he was a boy he got into a fight with another of the household slave boys. He had a vicious right hook and sent the other boy flying. He was flogged for his bad behaviour yet the Dominus saw fighting ability in him - along with the potential to earn coin through his winnings. When he matured he was placed in training at the Ludus and struggled at first to cope with the change of pace. Apollodorus was trained to be a cestus, a boxer style of gladiator and he hated the minimal amount of armour he was forced to wear. He gained the mark of the gladiator, and has already survived bouts. Family Herakles x Caecilia (household slave) Other siblings on either side of the family. EVENT FOR: Gladiatorial games. @Gothic
  2. Laran. Twenty-five | 2 April 49CE | Slave | Gladiator - Retiarius | Hetero | Original | Peter Mensah Personality & History Formerly he went by Lucius Afriananius before he had to sell himself in order to repay his gambling debt. It all started out small. A gamble here, a gamble there, and the desire to repay it all back. Just one win... Just need a big win. Unfortunately, it spiraled. He had no desire to ask his family for money or to ask one of the predatory gangs for another loan to pay back. He abandoned his family one day, and in shame went to the block. He found himself purchased by a Ludus Matutinus due to his long frame and agile appearance. His training went well and he has already competed in a couple of events already. His old name and the shame briefly forgotten when he steps into the Arena. To his surprise, he survived the matches and only came away with scars to prove his survival. Yet only the Gods know what is ultimately in store for him. Family Wife and one child. EVENT FOR: Gladiatorial games.
  3. MARCUS CASSINUS. 25 | 22 July 49CE | Milite | Pleb | Bisexual | Original | Jai Courtney Personality & History Marcus' life before this point was quite average. He learned his trade and went into service to Rome through the legion once he was able to do so. His poorer background and lack of a trade kept him at Milite rank for sometime. Marcus did not know why he fled. He could have been executed in a variety of ways. If he had of been closer to the old legion he served in. He may have attempted to go back to the legion to face punishment. He thought himself an honourable man until the yearnings to return home became too strong. They needed him back here. There were harvests, and he needed to protect his family members. It all became too much for him to cope with. He deserted. Once he was home he began to realise his mistake and what it would eventually cost him. Surely the authorities would understand? A compassionate officer instead gave him the chance to survive or die in the arena to see whether or not the Gods would be compassionate towards him. Marcus deeply regrets his decisions and hopes to make amends with blood, if need be. In a strange way he hopes to reclaim his honour to Rome. Family Two disappointed parents and other family members. EVENT FOR: Gladiatorial games.
  4. Lucius Baebius 20 | 15th August 54 | Soldier | Pleb| Bisexual | Original | Isaac Hempstead-Wright Personality & History Lucius is quiet and timid. He acts much younger than his years, and has always been the baby of his family. Many were surprised by his decision to join the military, as its completely at odds with his temperament. He is fearful of many things, and is easily anxious. His quiet nature fits with his weak body which has none of the muscularity of many Roman men, especially those in the legions. -- Born into a poor Plebian family, the fifth child (and third son) in rural Italia, there wasn't a great deal in the way of prospects for Lucius. He spent his early years minding his family's meagre plot of land and being coddled by his mother and older sisters. Having always been small and fairly unimpressive, he was sure he wouldn't be accepted into the army but he was, and he was determined that his wage would be of unparalleled benefit for his family. Unfortunately for him, it was quickly apparent that military life wasn't one for him. He dreaded every day of training, and the thought of a decade of his life spent in service to Rome was unpalatable. When he found out the legion he had been assigned to was to go to Britannia, he fled. He couldn't face the thought of dying in an unfamiliar, cold, desolate country and naively assumed that he'd not be missed. He was caught three weeks later, starving and hiding in an abandoned house not far from where he had fled. He's now in Rome, awaiting his punishment and is paralysed with fear. Family Marcus Baebius - father Nona Caelia - mother Marcus Baebius Minor - brother Aulus Baebius - brother Antonia Baebia - sister Gaia Baebia - sister EVENT FOR: Gladiator Games @Gothic
  5. Gaius Hostilius. 42 | 7 April 32CE | Plebeian | Murderer | Hetero | Original | Craig Walsh-Wrightson Personality & History Gaius was born to a decently well off plebeian family in Rome. However, he always wanted more. His childhood was relatively normal by Roman standards. His Uncle and siblings were all content to work in the fields with animals. He always wanted something bigger. He wanted more. He had a long history of using poisons in an attempt to try to further this own ends. Usually it was low level crime. His goal was mostly to gain as much coin as he could from his victims, and conning them. He preyed on the most vulnerable members of society. Unfortunately, he aimed at the wrong target and soon found himself in a bind. His friends betrayed him and he was convicted to die by execution in the arena. Grimly he awaits his fate, but hopes that the Gods are kind and permits him a quick death. Family Gneaus Hostilius (deceased) and Rutila Teuta(deceased) No spouse or children. Uncle. Gneaus Hostilius Minor (horse trader) Three kids. EVENT FOR: Gladiatorial games.

    Ino

    Ino 25 | 1st October 47 | Slave | Gladiator | Heterosexual | Original | Bipasha Basu Personality & History Ino is cold and unmoving. Rarely one to crack a smile or make a joke she keeps people at arms length. She has few friends, and even those she does have know very little about her true motivations or feelings. She feels most at home in the arena, where she doesn't have to talk and instead can let her anger flow through her. Underneath it all she's a devious, malevolent woman with mountains of unreleased anger and hatred. Hatred for Rome, hatred for herself and what she's done and hatred for her fellow gladiators who she sees as keeping her from her freedom. -- Ino was born verna at a farm just outside of Rome. Her parents were slaves and had been for all their lives, although her mother was born from a union between a Germanic man and a Syrian woman, and her father was from Cyrene. She lived there until her early twenties, working the land under the empire's command, although she hated it. She had always been a troubled child with few friends and an incident with a fellow slave at age twenty-one only compounded her anger. He had tried it on with her in the past, tugging at her skirts and leaving a lingering hand on her thigh, but when that night he had tried to kiss her she had snapped. A fight ensued and before she realised what she had done she had thrust the point of her dinner knife through his jaw. He died after lingering for a few weeks, in immeasurable pain, but Ino felt little remorse. In her mind he had, had it coming - even if his advances were innocent enough. She received suitable punishment at the farm and her back bares witness with a criss-cross of scars, and she was promptly sold. Owing to her temperament and history, she was sold to Ludus Gallicus in the city as an imperial slave. She's been there four years and is ready for her chance at glory or death. Family Letmiar - Father Adera - Mother EVENT FOR: Gladiator Games TAG: @Gothic (and could I adjust her to be '3' rather than a '2' for the games?)
  7. Cira Exocia 18| 22 March 56CE | Prisoner | Merchant | Heterosexual | Original | Jessica Barden Personality & History Cira and her family originate from Greece, her father had made himself very wealthy through shrewd trade and dealings with those around the empire. He eventually became well known enough that he was called upon to serve as an economic adviser to the Greece governor. Cira grew up in relative comfort with almost no wants. Her father was rather lenient with his children but insisted that they all at least know how to hold a sword and swing it. While some of her siblings excelled at these teachings. Unknown to her and the rest of the family her father has been lining their pockets with money meant to go to the state, and while they were unaware the state became aware. Shortly after the entire family was arrested for spending money meant for the improvement of the state and its people. Her father was promptly executed and her and her siblings were sent to Roma as gifts for the upcoming games.

  8. Vopicscus 16| 19 February 58CE | Prisoner| Thief | Heterosexual | Original | Dylan Minnette Personality & History Growing up on the streets with no family and no where to go the only logical course of action for survival was stealing. Small things at first, just food to get by but as the years progressed and he got better with his slight of hand skills loafs of bread eventually became jewelry off the unsuspecting merchants in the market. This skill came in handy and made him rather wealthy in his own eyes making him feel almost invincible. This would be his downfall as he would get roped into a heist planned to steal a number of the extremely expensive weapons from the Fields of Mars. Unfortunately they were not expecting the security to be so high at the location and those that were not killed were arrested, Vopicscus being one of them. Family Who knows? EVENT FOR: Gladiators!

    Momus

    MOMUS 20 | January 1st, 54CE | Slave | Gladiator - Retiarius | Bisexual | Original | Robert Sheehan Personality & History Momus was born as verna in the household of a wealthy Greek merchant named Iobates, in Rome. His original name was Euanthes. While both his parents were body slaves, the boy proved to be very bright at an early age, so his master allowed him to learn to read and write from the slaves tutoring his children, hoping the boy would eventually become a scribe to serve his son. Euanthes had a knack for memorizing things and learning languages; by the time he was ten he'd learned Greek and Latin and he was getting started on the other tongues the household slaves spoke. He also exhibited a less than favorable trait: For lack of a better term, he was a smartass. He talked well, talked a lot, and soon became famous for his silver tongue and sharp with in the household. The old master had a soft spot for the boy, but his son, the young master a few years older than Euanthes, was more than annoyed with his quick-witted and sarcastic scribe-to-be. Euanthes was 16 years old when his master passed, and as soon as the funeral was done, he knew his days in the household were numbered. This knowledge made him even more sharp-tongued and rebellious, until one day he managed to make the wrong joke at the wrong time - and invoked such fury from his young master, Meidias, that the man decided to take revenge. On that same day Euanthes was sold to the Ludus Magnus to be a gladiator. Since ha had a slight build and a scholarly talent, his master hoped that'd he'd suffer and then die a humiliating death in the arena. Euanthes, however, adapted surprisingly well to his new environment. He was trained as a retiarius, and proved to be as quick with net and trident as he was with his tongue. In fact, the latter became his staple: He became known in the arena as someone who would make fun of his opponents, shout out clever comments, and turn any fight into a battle of insults and comedy. He soon earned a new name for the games, and by now, everyone knows him only by that name: Momus, Greek god of wit and sarcasm. Momus is a fun-loving, daredevil kind of person. He was not expected to last long in the arena, and he is determined to make the most of his time. He is outspoken, sharp, cynical, and all-around charming (as long as you are not on the receiving end of his jokes). He likes to show off that he had better education than most gladiators, but he is generally a friendly person, even if he talks way, way too much. He enjoys attention and laughter, and the finer things in life, whenever he can get them. The rest is up to the gods.

  10. ASCANIUS 31 | June 41CE | Slave | Gladiator | Bisexual | Original | Chris Hemsworth Personality & History Ascanius is a man of many facets. To some, he is somewhat larger than life. He has a grin and a wink for most people, and largely an even temperament which would surprise most people given his reputation in the arena. Overall, he appears jovial, and a 'happy go lucky' man in public. His 10 years in Rome have calmed him down considerably, and whilst upon his arrival he flitted from owner to owner and was prone to violent outburst at the injustice of his enslavement, time has settled him and whilst he has a deep and ongoing resentment to those that would keep him in chains, he can largely keep this to himself and enjoy a drink (or more) with Romans. However, there are three clear sides to Ascanius. His happy go lucky public persona is the opposite of his arena character. When his life is on the line, he is ruthless. Whilst he isn't as fond of the pageantry of the arena as some of his contemporaries (and thus, isn't as favoured as them) his incredible skill as a gladiator is feared by those he faces. He will gladly maim and take life, and do so as a way to channel his fury. At night, however, the third side comes into play and he cannot remember the last time he had a solid sleep. He suffers deeply with night terrors - often remarked as amusing given his impressive physicality and seeming robustness. He is a deeply troubled man and the night terrors are only a part of this. He has routinely thought about taking his own life, although this comes in waves and at present he has less inclination. Overall, however you get to know Ascanius, there is no telling which side of him you'll meet. --- Born and raised in a small village in Epirus, Ascanius (or Myrtilos as he was then known) had a good life as the only son of Adeler and Eydis - parents who had been desperately trying to conceive for years. His family worked the mountainous land, although unbeknownst to him, his father also dabbled in intrigue - stirring up insurrection across the region. Shortly after his 16th birthday he wed a girl, Suriya, from a neighbouring settlement and the two remained happy and content (if not a bit tumultuous, as his wife was no wilting wallflower). However, his life as he knew it changed shortly after he turned twenty when his wife fell pregnant and had a son, Gauti. Whilst naturally garrulous and boisterous, fatherhood tempered Myrtilos's spirits somewhat and he devoted a large portion of his time to caring for his family (much the amusement of his friends, who saw a great hulking man settle down quite comfortably into family life). Things, however, would not last. The beginning of 53CE saw the start of a war against the Romans, and one that would suck in everybody and everything Myrtilos held dear. His father would die in March of that year, and he himself - whilst against the war (largely content with his lot in life - despite Rome's influence) - would be brought into the conflict. Small scale skirmishes would see his friends fall, and whilst he participated, he managed to survive with few injuries. However, in June as the campaign seemed lost, the Roman legions would begin ruthlessly suppressing any continued dissent. They came to the settlement and despite resistance, sacked it. Their homes were burnt, men fought and died and those that survived were enslaved. Myrtilos, despite a deep chest wound, would live and was packed into a transport with his wife, son and mother to pastures unknown. He would only find out weeks later they were headed to Rome and without fanfare, the family were separated. His wife's face as her son was taken from her arms, is a constant source of his nightmares - as is the image of her face as he was led away. He would later find out that she took her own life, the slave gossip mill never sleeping, and he feels a constant emptiness that he will never know whether it was through grief or pride that she committed her final act. Since his arrival in Rome, he's had no word of his son or mother and presume they were sold to households across the city or perhaps more further afield in Italia. Given his build and stature, Myrtilos was sold to a farm to work the land but his continued temper and outbursts saw him returned again and again from those who bought him. He cycled through five or six owners; some farms, some families looking for muscle to protect them, but it never lasted. Eventually he was sold to the Ludus Dacius as a last resort in 69CE, and despite the odds, has proven an exceptionally capable gladiator. He has found the arena gives him a chance to release his pent him aggression and anger, and the brotherhood and camaraderie of his fellow slaves has given him a new sense of community that he's been lacking since he was taken from his home, all those years ago.
