* LivingForeverIsAwesome: Casca, the eponymous mercenary, is rather satisfied with his immortality as a whole although he has his occasional moments of regretting it when stuck in a Fate Worse Than Death like being buried alive for decades.



* WhoWantsToLiveForever Casca's immortality angst is usually played straight, and entirely justified.

* WhoWantsToLiveForever Casca's immortality angst is usually played straight, Casca flucates between this and entirely justified.
LivingForeverIsAwesome depending on his current situation. For the most part he does fully acknowledge the downsides and has his lows but at the same time seems rather satisfied in general with his lifespan.

* {{Badass}}: An immortal Roman soldier with over 2000 years of combat experience, and counting? Yep, Casca is this.

* LongRunner: 34 novels since 1979, and still going. It seems the series might keep going to the Second Coming, just like Casca.

* BlackComedyRape: In ''Casca: The Trench Soldier'', Casca and Cockney Dave rape two French girls (who are insinuated to have [[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization enjoyed it.]]) After beating up the husband of the older girl, (the young one is his daughter) and tying him up. It's "justified" by the fact that since [[DisproportionateRetribution the man was physically fit and of military age, but was still operating a café as a civilian, he is probably a coward, who has bribed his way out of conspription and thus deserves it. Seriously.]]

* BeenThereShapedHistory: Casca has fought with/against everyone from [[UsefulNotes/{{Islam}} Mohammed]] to UsefulNotes/{{Blackbeard}}. Oh, and do you think [[spoiler: Hitler commited suicide in his bunker?]] Nope, Casca killed him.

* BloodKnight: Not by his own choice. This series has a much more sober and problematizing view of war, than what could be assumed at first glance.

* DentedIron: Casca is immortal and has a HealingFactor. Still, depending on the severity of his wounds, he may still feel pain and require rest to heal. In ''Casca: The Damned'', Casca reminisces how he was [[ManOnFire burned at the stake]] by a Persian Vizier, and how he still can't sit near an open fire for long, or feel the smell of roasting meat without wanting to vomit.
