War of the DamnedEdit
Having just arrived back from a successful campaign in Hispania against Quintus Sertorius, the Dour Soldier was among a small group of soldiers sent by Pompey to rendezvous with the army of Crassus. As he sat by
the fire cooking dinner with his comrades, he was complaining about how they only had one hare to eat between them when he spotted a light in the distance. Rising to his feet and drawing his sword, he shouted into the night, "carry torch forward!" His command was greeted with a flaming arrow, shot by Saxa, that struck him in his right eye, killing him. As he lay dead, the rest of his comrades were subsequently killed by Spartacus, Gannicus, and Lugo. Their armor and supplies were taken and eventually used by the rebels during their ruse that resulted in the capture of Tiberius.
- Judging by his demeanor, he appeared to be the leader of his small detachment. This would likely have made him a decurio, a Roman cavalry officer in charge of a small squadron.
