Greetings Urbanzorro and everyone!
Even if there is someone else applying for the role of a full gladiator, two of them are required. I am taking one of them.Julius Flavius Severus
: Full GladiatorGladiator Type:
Julius Flavius Severus had a lot of experience in the Roman Legions in the Northern regions of the Empire. This explains why he can fight as a Murmillo or a Velites.Age:
Even before becoming a gladiator, Julius Flavius Severus was always a physically impressive man. The tall Roman stood 6’2 and weighted more than 220 pounds of pure muscles, perfectly distributed in a manly body with wide shoulders, thick arms, 8-pack abs and strong thighs. His brown, curly hair and dark eyes were a perfect match for his tanned skin, covered with scarves in his arms. Personality:
Julius Flavius Severus was a very confident man, which was a consequence of his dominant personality. He was used to leading, not being led. Until a tragedy fell upon his personal life, he had protective instincts, playing the role of the Alpha provider for his family and even for his subordinates. However, this past was is gone and by the time he was made slave, he was using his superior body and intelligence to intimidate, to abuse and to beat whoever did not bow to his selfish desires. This does not mean he cannot carry on a conversation and eventually teach what others don't know - he is capable of making friends when some pints of beer are on the table. If any soul can see through his hardened surface, he or she will see a troubled person looking for peace.Bio:
Julius Flavius Severus was born as a free Roman in a very rich family that had been given lands near Modena. The young Julius was raised as traditions required for his status, i.e. educated as someone to rule. Besides Latin, he learned to speak Greek. Moreover, he was taught the basics of astronomy and astrology. Traditions also required him to be trained as a legionnaire, even a commander. As he reached 16, Julius was sent to combat as a commander of a centuria and spite of his lack of experience, managed to win some battles. At the age of 25, he was becoming a legend, rising in the military career.
Then, something terrible happened to his life, which would make his world crumble. The Fates did not spare him. While his beloved family was visiting him in the North, a group of Germanic raiders crossed the Rhine River. His family was staying in a small fortification targeted by the invaders who outnumbered the defenders in a sneaky attack. As a result of the invasion, his wife was killed and his twin kids were enslaved, taken to Barbarian lands.
This was too much for Julius, who collapsed emotionally. Julius became a problematic official, obsessed with the idea of finding his kids again. He led several raids into Germania, even though his commanders had not authorized them. He was reprimanded and all he did was to curse his commander. His lack of discipline caused Julius to be expelled. His father, a famous Roman commander who had fought with Augustus in Egypt, did not like what happened. When Julius returned to his father's home, he was not allowed to enter it. Within 6 months, Julius was owing lots of denari and as he could not afford paying his debts, he was sold in the other side of the Tiber River as a slave to the Pater Familias Lucius Flavius, who had heard about his fighting skills.Character's Ons:
Julius is naturally dominant, but he enjoys a challenging woman to be tamed. After the death of his wife, Julius' romantic side faded away and all he cares about a woman is how she can please him - paradoxically, he can be lovely and tender, if his old self comes back. He likes the different: her wife was a redhead woman, which was quite unusual for Roman standards, where brunettes were the rule. Character's Offs:
Same as myself. See below.Player's Ons:
I am open to discuss anything. I thought we could show him changing from a brutal man to a more centered character. Of course, sex would come first, but I want to see his noble side back. This is just a lose idea, so I am open to change it: even though I like planning, I am not very dogmatic.Player's Offs:
My list is not very big. Even if you think I may have it listed something you want in my off list, please send me a PM: I tend to be very flexible, since a major on for me is to turn my writting buddies. For further information, click here
