* AnimalMotif: Marius, Vitallion and Commodus wear customised suits of armor which are decorated in with a certain animal. Marius's is a stylised ''Aquila'' (Roman eagle) that is emblazoned high on the front and back of his chest armor, arm and shin guards, and the individual bands are bordered golden to remind of the feathers of a golden eagle; Vitallion's beast of choice is a ''lion'', found relief-hammered in the same places as on Marius with the exception of his back, as well as on the attachment points for his ''sagum'' (cloak); Commodus' golden armor bears a viper's head with open mouth on the chest and is, unlike that of the two professional soldiers' (who both wear the famed ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorica_segmentata Lorica segmentata]]'', embodiment of [[TheGloryThatWasRome the Roman Empire]]), a set of ''scale'' armor.

It is a time of crisis. TheRomanEmpire is besieged by barbarian armies and is on the verge of collapse. In these troubled times, you command Roman soldier Marius Vitus. When barbarians murder his family, he embarks on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge that takes him on a brutal campaign to the shores of [[GrimUpNorth Britannia]] as he climbs the ranks of TheGloryThatWasRome.

[[spoiler:In chapter one, this simply seems the words of a [[KnightInSourArmor battle-worn, experienced soldier]], but after it is revealed that Marius is the "Damocles" that Nero fears…]]
