Mew's plotter


Recommended Posts

aulus avilus galerius - thirty-six - spymaster
senatore - hetero - widower (agrippina julia, deceased)

Those he knows personally and of course his family are genuinely loved and protected. He isn't violent, but being in the business he is, he knows people who are for the promise of some coin. If he needs to call on them, he absolutely will, without hesitation, if his family is in danger. He gets along with his immediate family fairly well and even his in-laws, despite what's happened with their daughter (his wife who passed).

Aulus is, on the surface, a kind, gentle man. His babyface invites you in, makes you feel welcomed, cared for, and valued. He will have a chat with just about anyone, as long as it doesn't turn personal, and he's great at offering advice on a situation. 

Aulus can and will be rather ruthless if need be. He may not be the one carrying out the act personally, but he will not hesitate to make the call to have it done. The sweet, soft cinnamon roll everyone sees is thrown to the wayside for a conniving, snippy, almost bitterly shrewd snake-in-the-grass.

His adored wife passed before she could give birth to their children (one girl, one boy), so children are a sore subject for him, and just a reminder of what he's lost and can never get back. In order to redirect his attention from this new lifestyle he's chosen for himself, the new connection he finds will have to be a very strong one.

He does do his best work for them, regardless of his feelings, but if it came down to himself or them, then he would certainly choose himself. He is absolutely one that separates emotion from business. He knows that when emotions enter into business, mistakes get made, and due to his job and his boss, he can't allow that to happen. If he allows himself to think past the surface of something, to involve his heart along with his head, he will get pulled into a mental and emotional quicksand that it will take him days, if not longer, to get out of. In his line of work, that's dangerous, even deadly. 

If you have someone who doesn't fit into an above category, drop me a DM and we can see what's possible!

Hey @Mew! So I've been thinking about how my characters could possibly cross paths with Aulus.

While I'm unfortunately drawing a blank for my lower-class people, my Livia could get in touch with him if she caught wind of what he does - not necessarily guess at the darker stuff, but if she comes to know that he buys/sells/trades information she would assume that he also has contacts who do others' dirty work for them, and that would be just what she needs. She wouldn't go straight to him with that, though, but would first test his skills and discretion with some other task(s).

As for Titus, they might possibly move in the same circles at large but he's much more politically and militarily-oriented than Aulus, so I don't see a lot of commonalities there besides social class and age. On the other hand, he's got a wife he's very fond of and three healthy children, so he could simply be the guy Aulus loves to hate lol. His mother's family owned property in Pompeii that was lost in the eruption, but he was in Dacia at the time and thus not directly affected by it.

@Liv Hey! So Livia's situation seems suuuper interesting, and so does Titus', especially when you mentioned that Aulus could be jelly of what he has as far as a family that Aulus feels like he got shafted on. I'm up for either one or both plots, so lemme know where they are currently at location-wise, and we can see who has the flash of brilliance first to post the starters. :3
