White faction members/roles


Recommended Posts

Characters in all roles can be slave, freedmen or plebeians, though the charioteers themselves are mostly likely to be slaves or freedmen. This is not an exhaustive list of named characters; I've only named two charioteers, you may add your own if you wish, as there would be several. This is mostly a list of character types/roles to be found in a chariot racing faction.


Do PM if you want to discuss any of these roles or a character idea!


Charioteers – aurigae – usually slaves, they won money for each race won



slave/freedman; Greek; suggested PB: Jack Huston from the 2016 Ben Hur – most successful current charioteer of the White faction. Personality and background open! Taken by @Járnviðr



slave/freedman; British or German; suggested PB Colin Farrell from the 2004 film Alexander the Great - up-and-coming charioteer. Personality and background open!
