The Pompeii Magistrate is a very proud and arrogant man, who constantly announces Pompeii's victories over Capua in competition.


He is a rather large individual who appears to constantly indulge himself. His speech and his overall attitude would show that he is an avid practitioner of hedonism.


He thinks very little of Capua and its gladiators, and goes as far as to question the capabilities of Crixus against Pericles. The prideful nature of the Magistrate annoys those around him, including the young Numerius, who tells Batiatus to wipe the smirk off his face in battle. The Magistrate of Pompeii also expresses annoyance with Batiatus and his gloating.

Despite his faults, the Magistrate does show a sign of kindness as he expressed concern when he heard that Titus Calavius was kidnapped, and even offering assistance to Calavius' family.

Blood and SandEdit

As the Magistrate of Pompeii, he occasionally competes with Capua in the arena, to which the authoritative figure boasts numerous victories over Capua.

The Magistrate represents Pompeii to fight against Capua, represented by Batiatus, in gladitorial combat. Despite many of his men falling to the likes of Agron, Duro, and others, the Pompeii Magistrate shrugs off the lesser battles as insignificant, and only pays particular attention to the Primus.

He presented the fearsome gladiator Pericles to fight against Crixus, who replaced Spartacus after he became ill. Throughout the battle, the Magistrate gloats over the prowess of his gladiator Pericles who is besting Crixus at the moment, and taunts Batiatus and Lucretia for it. Eventually, Crixus regains his strength and will-power to finish off Pericles, to which the Pompeii Magistrate expresses shock and dissappointment.

After the battle, it is revealed Calavius was captured, with all his guards killed. The Pompeii Magistrate then generously offers his support and assistance to Domitia, who declines. He later returns to Pompeii.


  • The Pompeii Magistrate may have held the office of Aedile, as they were responsible for the organisation of public games. Aediles were also in charge of law enforcement, which could have been the case when the magistrate offered to assist the authorities in Capua in searching for the abducted Magistrate Calavius.
