    Vinicius 

Marcus Vinicius

A Roman officer with a really huge (and more or less mutual) crush on Lygia. He shows himself to be rash, brutal and rather reckless in his pursuit of her; his track record includes kidnapping, sexual abuse, killing completely innocent people just because he got mad and seriously offending his uncle's good taste. He gets better thanks to the combined powers of love and Jesus - just in time for the difficulties of a more political nature to arrive...

    Lygia 

Callina a.k.a. Lygia

A barbarian princess of the Lygians (hence her nickname). She was taken as a hostage when she was a child, but, forgotten by both Roman officials and her own people, grew up with her caretakers, the Aulus family, as their daughter in anything but name. Because of her foster mother, she adopted Christian faith and is a devout believer ever since.


    Petronius 

Gaius Petronius Arbiter

Vinicius' uncle. Aesthete, hedonist, writer. Possibly the sanest person in Rome, at least not counting the Christians, and one of its most influential politicians.


    Chilon 

Chilon Chilonides

Philosopher, medic and a fortuneteller. Hired by Vinicius to infiltrate the Christians and find out where Lygia is hiding.


    Ursus 

Ursus, Christian name Urban

Lygia's simple-minded, ridiculously strong servant and bodyguard.
