Leviticus was a gladiator in Batiatus' Ludus and later a rebel under Spartacus' command.

Character OutlineEdit

He was already a gladiator for The House of Batiatus when Crixus first arrived at the ludus. Though he is never seen in the arena, his survival from the time of Crixus' arrival to the time of Spartacus' revolt is likely indicative of his skill as a gladiator. He was tall, robust, and had a shaved head with a tanned skin tone. As indicated by the name given to him as a gladiator, it is likely that he came from Judea and was a member of the tribe of Levi, and was captured and sold to the Romans many years before Pompey, one of Rome's greatest generals, conquered Judaea in 63 BCE.

Gods of the ArenaEdit

As a gladiator in Batiatus' Ludus, Leviticus trains and socializes with his fellow gladiators throughout the season.  He is typically seen wearing the armor and holding the weapons of a Murmillo.

When Ashur and Dagan return victorious from the arena having defeated Hasdrubal and Kleitos, Leviticus mocks Ashur when Ashur attempts to brag to the other gladiators about the victory. During the orgy that is thrown by Lucretia and Gaia, Leviticus is among the gladiators who are chosen to participate.

When Spartacus slays Sextus and begins the revolt at the ludus, Leviticus chooses to take up arms and fight, slaying many Romans inside the house and eventually escaping with Spartacus.

VengeanceEdit

Leviticus remains a significant presence among the growing group of rebels as the rebellion progresses. He accompanies Spartacus on most of the missions throughout the season.

When Agron breaks apart from Spartacus and Crixus and announces his intention to move separately toward Vesuvius, Leviticus is among those rebels who choose to follow him there.  

He would take part in the mission to rescue Crixus, Oenomaus, and Rhaskos from the arena in Capua. Led by Mira, he would set fire to the arena, causing it to collapse and kill many Romans.

While encamped at the Vesuvius Temple, Leviticus spends much of his time training new recruits in the art of combat.

Following the counter-attack on Glaber's forces that is led by Oenomaus, Leviticus fights with great skills against the Romans and is one of the first rebels over the wall during their recapture of the temple.

War of the DamnedEdit

Leviticus is seldom seen throughout the season, most likely indicating that he is on away missions for Spartacus' army such as freeing slaves and bringing them to the rebel cause. However, he is seen back with the main army fighting the final battle alongside Spartacus and his comrades in arms. In the end, he manages to escape the battlefield and join other survivors in escaping over the Alps, finally embracing true freedom.

TriviaEdit

  • Leviticus is played by New Zealand stuntman Levi Holley.
  • Leviticus is a Greek rendering of the name Levi, meaning "belonging to the Levites". The Levites were members of the Hebrew tribe of Levi.
  • Leviticus is one of the few characters to appear in all three seasons and the prequel.
  • Leviticus, the Veteran, Tyronius, Lydon, Pollux, and Agron are the only gladiators from the House of Batiatus known to survive the Third Servile War in its entirety.
    • Actor Levi Holley confirmed that Leviticus survived the events of the final battle and escaped over the Alps.
  • The Hasmonean Kingdom of Judaea became a client-state of the Republic of Rome in 63 BCE, after it was conquered by Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus. Leviticus' enslavement would have occurred prior to this.
  • If Leviticus is a member of the tribe of the Levites, he may have been a son of the Kohannim, the hereditary priestly caste of Hasmonean-era Judean society. If so, his life as a gladiator and the situations relating to his profession would have disqualified him from performing any clerical duties in his native society, and so may have been an outcast before his enslavement by the Romans.
