  • Protagonist Centred Morality: Titus Pullo is a rapist and multiple murderer but is presented as heroic because he is a loyal friend to Vorenus. This is entirely deliberate, since raping the enemy's women was completely normal behavior for Roman legionaries.

i am not sure if the trope applies merely if something is immoral to our culture, but based in the last line, this is considered acceptable because this was considered acceptable in the time portrayed . In other words, this sounds as an aversion to Politically Correct History, not something related with his relation with the protagonist.
