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.
