* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Pullo is a brutish soldier and an occasional murderer-for-hire (though not without his better moments), but he honors his slave mother's memory.

* MistakenForGay: He helps [[SecretKeeper Posca]] take Caesar [[LampshadeHanging into a closet]] to attend him while Caesar is having a seizure so nobody else sees it. Later, Atia sees Octavian and Caesar getting out of the clsoet and thinks that her son and uncle are having an affair... and [[DeliberateValuesDissonance she is delighted with the idea]] since it could [[EvilMatriarch provide her with more power]].

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: She receives a brief but powerful one from Atia in the final scene, and you tell it hit the mark. Livia is NOT going to enjoy having Atia for a Mother-In-Law. (Then again, if you believe the historical accounts about Livia - or have read/watched IClaudius - it's possible that ''Atia'' is not going to survive having Livia as a daughter-in-law!) Even if Livia wasn't as bad as her enemies say, she was definitely the most important woman in the real Octavian's life and spent a lot of time whispering suggestions in his ear--which would sting for Atia, who clearly would want to be the matriarch of her son's rule.

One of the two protagonists. We first meet him as a centurion of the 13th Legion in Gaul who has not seen home nor his family for 8 years and wishes nothing but going back to them. Vorenus is an impeccably honest and most honorable man that values tradition, law and loyalty to the Roman Republic above all... something that will bring him innumerable problems. Played by Kevin [=McKidd=].

* 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.
