Personality.

Helios has lived most of his life as a slave and barely remembers free life – but at the moment, he lives a rather free life as a slave, actually, or so he thinks. He’s quite confident and believes that although he is a slave, he can rise higher in the hierarchy among his own. After all, he gets pleasure (and sometimes pain), he gets to leave the domus unattended and he always returns. Why shouldn’t he? It’s his home. Helios is known to be a good and obedient slave, but within there are some unspoken desires to become more. Of course he knows freedom can be earned, but while he does not have the life he would prefer, it is much better than what it used to be. So far he has made from ordinary house slave, to prostitute and then to someone who is something like a spy or a messenger. Lately he has begun to desire freedom after all and he has begun saving up for purchasing said freedom. But it takes a while and there is so much to do.

He has a smooth tongue, knows how to address different people and is good at reading people to guess what they want from him – so that he can get what he wants from them. Helios can be a good friend to have and a powerful ally, despite being a slave. But he also knows how to pull the right strings if someone crosses him. To the other prostitutes, he’s a good friend and takes good care of anyone seeming weaker and more fragile than he – and especially those who are treated much worse than he. Helios prefers justice to people he call friends, but he also knows it's not always to be found in a brothel. Still though, he tries.

Sometimes he has nightmares - about fires and screams and the image of a woman, telling him to hide, only for large men with weapons picking him up while crying. When he's awake, Helios never thinks about this and he has little thought for his childhood in Britannia... but apparently it is still there sometimes when he sleeps. Not every night, but sometimes.

 

Appearance

Helios is somewhat tall compared to most Romans around him. He has a rather masculine build, slender and fit – yet still there seems to be something feminine about the way he moves and the way he looks at you at certain times. He has blue eyes, often seeming playful or kind, wanting to charm the world around him. His hair is dirty blonde, in the summer entirely blonde, as he makes sure to get out, get a tan and let the sun brighten the hair during the day time. Helios keeps the blonde hair long and often loose, as his master believes this attracts more clients for him, than if he wore a more masculine hairstyle. In the brothel he often just wears a simple loincloth and perhaps a few pieces of jewelry, or he’ll wear a simple and short, light brown tunica, only just covering his most intimate parts. When he is out and about in Rome, hired to be a companion for a noble or hired for a party, he wears whatever he is told and given to wear. Sometimes he shaves, sometimes he don't - that depends on what his most important next client prefers.

History

CHILDHOOD [47-58 AD]:

  • Helios had another name when he was born, but he does not remember it. He was born in Britannia, but the attacks from the Romans upon his tribe grew worse and worse. Helios does not remember much from his early childhood, other than playing in the middle of the village and wandering off to the forest, only to be picked up by his mother telling him not to stray. There were dangers outside the village. Eventually, danger entered the village. Helios was just 5 years old and his mother had him hidden in the stable of their house, when the Romans came. He never saw his parents again. Instead the Romans found him and took mercy on the young child and brought him with them, to make him into a slave. 

    A slave trader took care of the boy and brought him the long way to Rome. Now 6 years old, the boy was sold to a wealthy Roman, but didn’t understand the language and missed his parents. An older female slave took him under her wing and cared for him as his substitute mother. Eventually he learned the language, he learned to carry out the jobs he had and most importantly, he learned how to avoid the whip or a beating.

TEENAGE TO EARLY ADULT [58-66 AD]:

  • Helios, as the boy had been named, grew to be a handsome young man with blonde hair and blue eyes. The youngest daughter in the household was about his age and they had become friends as children, but now the father didn’t care for the friendship. He feared for what would happen. And so Helios was sold, just like that. His new owner, Lucius Armenius Valerius, had a brothel, Elysium. First Helios was to just serve the whores and their clients, but when he was 14 years old, his master thought it was about time the boy was broken in as a prostitute. He lost his virginity to his master first – he would never have thought it, but a man was the first he slept with in a bed. It hurt a little, but it was actually not as bad as he expected. And he just had to get used to it. At least this was what his master told him, so there wasn't much to do about it. He better just get the best out of it, if he could.

    Soon Helios was used to the looks the men gave him and the care – and sometimes abuse – they showed him. This was his lot in life though and he had to live it. He also slept with women and did what he could to figure out what they wanted, for they were often quite different than the men; often more romantic and the sex he had with them was not the same as with the men. He became better at serving in bed, guessing what his clients wanted even before they said it. Meaning that sometimes he was given presents, coin and jewels and nicer clothes, and so he worked on pleasing them all even more. Eventually he was moved into the Domus Venus instead of the Elysium. Still though, this was not how he had imagined life to be. Helios did not want to just be a whore.

ADULTHOOD [66-77 AD]:

  • He was 19 years old, when he spoke to his mistress about the matter. At this time, his old master had moved on in life and the brothels had been passed on to a new owner, so he had a mistress instead of a master – one he hoped he could influence more than his former owner. Helios spoke charmingly about how he had strong arms and legs, how he was still good looking, how he was good at talking and sweet-talking and how he could be useful in other ways than just pleasing the clients. The owner agreed to let him try; he managed to sneak out secrets from the Romans and told them to his owner, who made good use of the secrets and made sure no one knew they came from the mouth of young Helios. It meant an upgrade in his lifestyle. He was given a better room and better clothes to lure in better and more important clients. He now sometimes works as something like a courtier; a companion for wealthy Romans – both women and men - to parties and such. Here he can both please the client and watch what is going on among the upper classes. He works both as a skilled prostitute, but he’s also a spy and messenger for his mistress and her associates.
  • Helios, now 28 years old, has begun considering the option of freedom in his life after all; a friend of his set him on this path. He has now begun saving up his earnings to eventually buy his own freedom, although he will likely continue working for the brothel or something like it. He has aspirations to become a real spy for someone of importance, but so far, those are only dreams. So far, he collects all the secrets he can and sells them for a price, no matter the cost for anyone else involved.
