Need me some Dacians

Recommended Posts

What did the Romans do to inhabitants of the regions they conquered? That's right, they enslaved them. Titus Sulpicius Rufus is no exception and brought home a couple of fine souvenirs from his time in Dacia: 

Diegis - Youngest son of a local chieftain, lost his father and older brother in the same skirmish where he was captured. Husband to Zia. A fierce warrior with good leadership skills and a troublemaker if left to his own devices, which is why Titus brought him to Rome and decided to make money off his muscles and battle prowess. Possible career paths: leased to one of the ludi to become a gladiator, to one of the chariot factions as security personnel, or rented to citizens as a bodyguard (if he behaves he may be allowed to keep a portion of the earnings for himself). Could get involved with one of the gangs, too. General personality, history and fate up to you. Suggested FC: Dustin Clare

Zia - Diegis' wife. Currently a household slave or leased to one of the chariot factions as cook/seamstress/veterinarian/weaver. Essentially a bit of a hostage to get Diegis to behave, although they are allowed to meet occasionally. Personality, history and fate up to you. Suggested FC: Gwendoline Taylor

Tarbus - Kinsman to the other two and Zia's cousin. Suffered serious wounds to his sword arm in battle, so life as a warrior is no longer an option. Probably leased to one of the chariot factions as horse trainer, cartwright, leather worker or even charioteer wannabe. Could also get involved with one of the gangs. Personality, history and fate up to you. Suggested FC: Liam McIntyre

Other slaves from Dacia or other regions are more than welcome, whatever their skills! And, while you're reading this, why not take a look at Titus' family in the canon lists too? They're very much open and wanted 😄
