* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite his extremely questionable morals and violent nature, he is very loyal and is very good with children. At least to children of his friends. He also acts as a mentor to Octavian, teaching him to more "like a man"

* [[BigBrotherInstinct Big Sister Instinct]]: Most prominent when she rushes to comfort Octavian after Antony chokes him, holding him while she screams at Antony and calls him an animal for his treatment of her brother. [[spoiler: Sadly, it doesn't last, and by the end of the series she appears to despise him for his setting up of her and Atia to be humiliated by Antony.]]

* AscendedExtra: The surviving writings of the actual, historical Caesar mention one 'Lucius Vorenus', centurion. Very little else is known of him, although it's safe to assume his importance has been greatly exaggerated.

* AscendedExtra: The writings of Gaius Julius Caesar really do mention one 'Titus Pullo,' member of his legions. Although the historical Pullo was a centurion, not a foot soldier.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: As much of a depraved and horrid man he is, he was blatantly disgusted with Atia for her selfish opportunism and her attempt to manipulate him into betraying Caeser and taking over Rome for her wishes. He scornfully calls her a "wicked old harpy" for this.

* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Atia is portrayed as seductive, manipulative and evil. There's absolutely no historical evidence for this; Tacitus actually describes her as a pious, devoted mother and an ideal Roman matron. Oh, and her enmity with Livia was invented by the series, too; the real Atia had been dead for five years when Octavian and Livia married.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Atia firmly believes this to be true. Which is why she arranges for Octavian to visit a brothel, so that he can become a real man.
