Emperor Resolutia Julius
44 - During the early years of his reign, Julius was content to be guided by his tutor Lucius Annaeus and his Praetorian prefect, Sextus Afranius. As time passed, he started to play a more active and independent role in government and foreign policy. During his early reign Julius sought to remove competition and made High Lord Cestiis Attis his High Marshal, the redoubtable general conducted a successful war and negotiated peace with the Nradian Union. High Lord Cestiis Attis then went on to crush a major revolt in Sapientiae, rumored to have instigated by the mysterious Order of Dust. Julius has recently focused much of his attention on what he deems to be the new cultural life of the empire, ordering theatres built and promoting athletic games. He makes public appearances as an actor, poet, musician, and charioteer. In the eyes of traditionalists, this undermines the dignity and authority of his person, status, and office. His extravagant, empire-wide program of public and private works is funded by a rise in taxes that is much resented by the middle and upper classes. Various plots against his life are regularly revealed and the ringleaders executed.
Lady Resolutia Caria
39 - Her first husband was the consul Marcus Vestinus Atticus from whom Halron was borne. Five years afterward she became Julius's 2nd wife.
Although witty and scheming, she is far less flamboyant than her predecessor and keeps a rather low profile in the public eye.
19 - Stepson and Heir. He attained the rank of High Arbiter at a surprising age of 18. Halron seems more concerned with parties and finding a wife. He is loved by his friends and constantly lectured by them for his foolish ways. He is publicly devout, although Resolutia Julius has been known to express doubts about his son's true faith. He has a wide forehead, weak chin, and light copper hair with misty blue eyes. He wears his hair cut short and lets it grow widely. He often has a smirk in eyes and gestures as if he is thinking of a really good joke or witty comment. He often wears extravagant leather jerkin and bracers.
