Acer followed Crixus in the days after escaping the ludus, bringing food and game along with Rhaskos and being wounded in sacking the villa where Chadara and Nasir were held. Acer accompanies Crixus and Spartacus to the mines to rescue Naevia. However, he - like Crixus and Rhaskos - is captured by Ashur and the Roman soldiers sent to ambush them.
Acer and his fellow Gauls are taken back to Capua to Batiatus' old ludus, where they are imprisoned.
At the feast held in Varinius' honor, the prisoners are paraded before the guests, with the announcement that one of them to be tortured to death for their amusement, as retribution for the slaughter of Batiatus and his guests. Lucretia is given the honor of choosing the victim, and she picks Acer.After he curses his captors defiantly, Acer's tongue is cut out by Seppius. His body is then slowly mutilated by several other guests (including Cossutius and Mercato). Varinius gives Seppia the honor of dealing the final blow, but when Acer looks into her eyes, she cannot bring herself to kill him. Ilithyia, eager to gain Varinius' attention, takes the chance and casually ends Acer's life with a sword-thrust to the abdomen.
Later when the rebels manage to defeat and capture Publius Varinius, Crixus angrily assaults the Praetor and desires vengeance for his involvement of the deaths of Acer and Rhaskos.
