Character OutlineEditIn the episode Legends, Ashur states that their mother was a whore who was apparently raped by a jackal. They were said to have terrorized the Eastern seas until their capture. They were cast into the arena to be killed but proved to be savage animals who viciously killed and ate the bodies of their victims. The other gladiators were to terrified to meet this fate and Crixus showed himself to be the only gladiator brave enough to face them. The flashback shows how they viciously attacked and managed to injure him before he was able to impale them with his sword. For this he was highly praised and respected and gained his dangerous reputation, which Ashur warns Spartacus not to underestimate him. Spartacus believes the story to be a jest, as well as Crixus himself.
The Gargan Twins are both muscular and lean in appearance. Their backs are hunched and their eyes are yellow, this gives them a very beastly, ape-like stature. The Twins' nails - or rather, claws - are long and shown to have been sharp enough to slice through a gladiator's arm. They fight barehanded, preferring their claws and teeth over any conventional weapons. They are animals above all else.
