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 perhaps 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 ArenaEditBarca and Auctus are setting off for the arena, Leviticus is seen embracing and wishing luck to each of them. Later, when his dominus Titus Lentulus Batiatus visits the sands of the ludus, he warmly greets Leviticus. These moments suggest that Leviticus has been a gladiator at the ludus for a lengthy amount of time.
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.
Blood and SandEditLeviticus remains a gladiator during the arrival of Spartacus. He is among those who jeer as Spartacus and Varro are first brought into the ludus. He spends most of his time with the other Gladiators, training and socializing.
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.Vesuvius Temple, Leviticus spends much of his time training new recruits in the art of combat. When the Romans attacked the rebels sanctuary, Leviticus fights valiantly in its defense and helps the rebels escape into the mountain of Vesuvius. While on the mountain, he helps make rope out of vines with the other rebels to allow Spartacus, Crixus, Agron and Gannicus to scale down the mountain and flank the Romans.
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, perhaps 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. Though his ultimate fate is unknown, it is likely that he perished during the battle or was later crucified along with the other captured rebels. It is possible though, that he was able to escape the battlefield and join the other rebels in crossing the mountains to embrace true freedom, far from the Republic.
- 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.
- 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.
