!!Publius Varinius [-(Brett Tucker)-]
[[quoteright:180:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/604948-varinius_01_box_art_6042.jpg]]

->''"Crassus? Yes, I have dined and bathed with him on many occasions. A man large of coin, small of cock."''

Publius Varinius is a high-ranking Praetor in the Roman Senate. His power and influence rivals Glaber’s own, causing much friction between the two as Varinius seeks to use Spartacus' rebellion as a way to gain favor for himself in the Republic, and knows that catching Spartacus would bring him glory.
----
* AffablyEvil
* [[spoiler: AssholeVictim]]
* BlondGuysAreEvil
* ChickMagnet
* CompositeCharacter: Possibly. Sources differ on whether there were two Roman generals "Publius" ''and'' "Varinius", or a single "Publius Varinius".
* [[spoiler: DeathByAdaptation: Historical records indicate that Varinius survived the war, though "was nearly captured".]]
* [[spoiler: DeathByDisfigurement]]
* DirtyCoward
* HarmlessVillain: Tall, well-built and looks fetching in armor. Largely ineffectual in a fight though, and it is clear that a great deal of his political influence stems from the fact that Albinius likes him.
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: Although in real life, he didn't fight Spartacus until ''after'' Glaber's defeat.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]]
* LastNameBasis
* ManInWhite
* TheRival: To Glaber.
* SixthRanger: To Glaber's squad.
* SmugSnake

!!Seppius [-(Tom Hobbs)-]
[[quoteright:160:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/spartacus_seppiusboxart_160w_3805.jpg]]

Seppius is a young Roman noble and older brother of Seppia. In ''Vengeance'', he leads a local militia intent on capturing Spartacus.
----
* [[spoiler: BloodFromTheMouth: In the night Glaber murders him.]]
* BrotherSisterIncest: One sided in his part.
* CanonForeigner
* ChekhovsGun: His bracelet.
* CrazyJealousGuy
* [[spoiler:DefiantToTheEnd]]
* TheDragon: To Varnius.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* [[spoiler: TheUnfought]]
* [[spoiler: WhiteShirtOfDeath: He's not really wearing a "shirt", but you get the idea.]]

!!Seppia [-(Hanna Mangan-Lawrence)-]
[[quoteright:160:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/seppia222-657557755_6553.jpg]]

->''"Is he not handsome and rich...and of means!"''

Seppia is the beautiful younger sister of Seppius, whose youthful innocence hides a much more cunning and devious nature.
----
* AloofDarkHairedGirl
* CanonForeigner
* CryCute
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Gets horrified when the Roman Elite are stabbing and murdering a helpless slave ForTheEvulz.
* GenkiGirl
* IncestSubtext: She and Seppius definitely put out a kinky vibe, especially in the scene where they share a mouth-on-mouth kiss.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]
* [[LikesOlderWomen Likes Older Men]]: Both Varnius and [[spoiler: Glaber]] are more than ten years her senior.
* RavenHairIvorySkin
* RichBitch
* [[spoiler: SlashedThroat]]
* [[spoiler: [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Brother]]: It leads to her death.]]

!!The Egyptian [-(Stephen Dunlevy)-]
[[quoteright:212:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_egyptian_4032.png]]

The Egyptian is a mysterious character who works as a member of Ashur's Group.
----
* {{Badass}}
* BewareTheQuietOnes
* TheBrute
** TheDragon: To Ashur.
* TheDreaded: But only to the Romans. There's no indication the rebels have even heard of him.
* CanonForeigner
* DualWielding[=/=]KnifeNut
* [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Everyone Calls Him The Egyptian]]
* TheGiant
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler: He slew Oenomaus and Lucius. He nearly killed Crixus as well.]]
* ImplacableMan
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]
* LightningBruiser
* NoNameGiven
* PsychoForHire
* TheStoic
* TheVoiceless

!!Marcus [-(Luke Pegler)-]

Marcus is the Military Tribune of Gaius Claudius Glaber.
----
* AttackAttackAttack: Unfortunately for him, RealityEnsues.
* BadassNormal: Gets into not one but two swordfights with Spartacus without being killed instantly.
* BadBoss: By the end of episode 4, you'd be forgiven for thinking that he ''wants'' his men to all get killed.
* BlondGuysAreEvil
* CanonForeigner
* DefiantToTheEnd
* TheDragon: Subverted – turns out he's more of a MookLieutenant. He is, however, the only fallen soldier that Glaber actually mourns.
* GeneralFailure: Refuses to change his tactics even after Spartacus slaughters several of his patrols piecemeal.
* GlassCannon
* HonourBeforeReason: After being wounded, he calls out for his last squad of reinforcements. Ashur knows that they won't make any difference, but Marcus seems to think dying to the last man is better than letting Spartacus escape. [[spoiler: Ashur doesn't agree, so he kills him.]]
* KilledOffForReal
* ModernMajorGeneral: Has some clever ideas off the battlefield, but proves to be an utterly inept commander. Perhaps TruthInTelevision, since a lot of Roman commanders ''were'' politicians rather than soldiers.
* UndyingLoyalty

!!Salvius [-(Paul Glover)-]

Salvius is a soldier, and later Tribune, serving under Glaber.
----
* ButtMonkey: Him getting beaten up by various characters verges on a RunningJoke. Also, despite being an experienced soldier who handles most of the army logistics and demonstrates UndyingLoyalty to his commander, he gets sidelined by said commander in favor of a SmugSnake slave.
* CanonForeigner
* TheChewToy
* GenreSavvy: When the heroes show up, his usual response is to take cover. Perfectly justified due to his experience in episode 5.
-->'''Salvius:''' "Kill them!" *Charges in and suffers an immediate OneHitKO*
* [[spoiler: HeroKiller: Kills Mira with a thrown axe, although his intended target was Spartacus. Nevertheless, this still makes him the only Roman to kill a significant member of the rebellion in ''Vengeance''.]]
* InterruptedIntimacy: You've got to admire his poker face when he walks in on [[spoiler: Glaber cheating on his wife with Seppia, to report the kidnapping of said wife no less.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]
* MookLieutenant: Takes over this role after Marcus is killed.
* NotInTheFace: Happens to him repeatedly, first by [[OneHitKO Spartacus]], then by [[UnderestimatingBadassery Ashur]], and then by Spartacus again ([[spoiler: fatally]]) in the finale.
* [[spoiler: NotSoHarmlessVillain]]
* ScarsAreForever: Averted - he bounces back surprisingly well from repeated face-smashings.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: An unusual villainous example, though subverted. Spartacus is fast enough to dodge it, [[spoiler: but Mira (who was behind him) isn't.]]
* VillainousValour: In ''Balance'', he saves Glaber's life from Spartacus, despite being disarmed at the time. He is also the last man standing in Glaber's defence in the finale.
