Son of a Roman Soldier and his Germanic wife he took while on campain, his features are a decent blend of both types, phyically fit, Lupis is willing to get his hands dirty and it shows in his sculpted body. He tends to wear a toga or cerimonial robe. The symbol of office around his neck. He also had a faceless helm fashoned from steel and silver that he tends to wear in public it's intricately engrained with Flame motiefs. he carries a fine steel gladius after all, one can never be too careful on the mean streets of Rome.
"Why bother with slaves?"
Place in Roman Society: High priest of Vestia (elected to position for life)
Homeland: Northern italy near Milan
"Of course they elected me high priest of Vestia, you have no idea how much I spent on that campain, I suppose I bought the votes if you call holding private games, helping out families in debt, giving employment to the idle, and comissioning artists down on their luck buying them. not bad for a kid who came to rome from some backwater Milanese village
Born in a small village his father moved the family to Rome when he was twelve, and enrolled Lupis in school, though not collage. his father was a drunk when not on duty, and voilence surrounded him from an early age. he started as a polotical headbuster eventually the roman family Lucias gave him command of a small estate near his orignal home town, he turned it into a massive profitable Winery and Wheat farm in a few years, and bought another estate, did the same with oil and meat, stone and brick exporting everything he didn't need. eventually he had enough money to make a bid for senate, of course one can't be a senator without being a patrician (noble caste) so he convinced the Lucias family to adopt him into their fold, and with him came his estates and money. He was known to persionally train with the Family retainers and his experience as a headbuster never failed him.
He did not have the ability to run for senate, with the funds depleated by buying his way up, instead he set his sights on the position High Priest of Vestia. It is only a cerimonial position, but a gateway to greater things. As the priest is responsible for the Verstial virgins. the flame supposedly keeps the city safe and is why it has never been invaded by a non-roman army. it would be a great blow to let the fire go out.
he spends his days in ritual, managing his estates, and attending the games when he can, he sponsors various gladiators keeping a diffrence between those the temple supports, and those he persionally pays for.
politically he is ruthless, every game he involves himself in is a political statement, and moves him ahead in power and prestege.
