Character OutlineEdit

Little of Ludovic is known, apart from his name and the fact that he served the lanista Solonius as Doctore, 'training' the Gargan Twins for him. Presumably he was a gladiator himself before becoming Doctore. His name marks him as likely being of Germanic origin.

Personality Edit

Sin título

Ludovic urinates in a cup one of his harsh training of the Gargan Twins.

He is an exremely harsh trainer and appears to only care about victory, nothing more. This was seen as he urinated in a cup for the Gargan Twins to drink as he intended for them to be great warriors in the arena.

Shadows of the JackalEdit

Sin títulok

Ludovic overseeing the Gargan Twins' training

Ludovic is instructed by Solonius to tame and train the Gargan Twins to fight in the arena. He does this through methods of starving them even forcing them to drink his urine. 

His training methods were ultimately warp the Gargan Twins further into becoming two of the most dangerous the gladiators the arena has ever seen, as their ferocity outmaches any gladiator skill.

It is not indicated if he is still Doctore of Solonius' ludus by the time of the events of Spartacus: Blood and Sand. If so, his fate following his dominus' arrest and ultimate death is unknown.


(Urinating in the water dish of the Gargan Twins) "Drink that in. The only water you will taste for a long while."

(To the Gargan Twins) "Will you break? Even now, my hungry jackals?"
