Characters in the 6 player game
Didius Severus – The man sent to solve the crime
Efficient in his own peculiar way, Didius Severus has an unusual method of solving crimes – he involves everyone!
Brutus – Governor of Gaul.
Wearing a crisp white toga which shows off his bling splendidly, Brutus is a Palatine Hill bovver boy, rippling with muscles and attitude who’s handy with his fists.
Calpurnia – Wife of Julius Caesar.
With a floaty tunic, a chain of wild flowers around her neck and in her hair, she’s quite the hippy chick.
Arsenix the Gaul – Slave.
Primped and preened to make him look like a respectable house slave, Arsenix the Gaul has still got that wild, flowing hair and big droopy moustache that mark him out as not from round here.
Flavia – Chef.
In her low-cut gown and with her hair bejewelled, Flavia is a glamorous chef who exudes sex appeal. You could say she’s a living goddess.
Titus Panticus – Bodyguard.
Wearing a fur-trimmed toga with gold sequins, Titus Panticus is Caesar’s personal bodyguard and fashion adviser.
Cossetta – Slave girl.
Barefoot and wearing a little shift dress with a cord around her waist, Cossetta is a slave girl who carries a broom and sweeps and sings wistfully.
Additional characters in the 8 player game:
Bibulus – Consul.
Wearing a woman’s full-length gown, his laurel wreath a bit wonky and hiding beneath a cloak, Bibulus doesn’t come across as leadership material.
Fortuna – Oracle at the Temple of Jupiter.
With her wild, flowing hair and full length cloak, Fortuna looks enigmatic, mysterious and frankly a bit potty.
Additional characters in the 10 player game:
Mark Antony – General of the Roman Army.
With his lithe tanned body, rippling biceps, brand new laurel wreath and skimpy toga, Mark Antony thinks he’s a bit of a Cupid.
Cleopatra – Queen of Egypt.
With her headdress, distinctive eye make-up, gold jewellery and long figure-hugging gown, this Egyptian powerhouse is dazzlingly exotic and beautiful.
Additional characters in the 12 player game:
Agononius – Apothecary.
A shady-looking character, unshaven and wearing a dirty tunic, Agononius carries figs and strange potions in his cloak and has herbs hanging from the cord around his waist.
Hilaria – Consul’s wife.
In a true blue gown with shoulder pads, bedecked with rossettes and carrying a manifesto, Hilaria is Bibulus’ wife and campaign manager.
Additional Characters in the 14 player game
Gluteus Minimus – Gladiator.
Knock-kneed and weedy, Gluteus Minimus is hardly lion-fighting material. With a shiny breastplate and dagger, there’s not scratch or a drop of blood on him.
Vesty Virginia – a Vestal Virgin.
Wearing a white veil with red and white ribbons and a shawl over her long dress, and with shiny sandals and braided hair, Vesty Viginia isn’t exactly the picture of innocence.
Additional Characters in the 16 player game
Biggus Diggus- Road builder.
Wearing tunic and sandals and carrying architectural plans, Biggus is ready for anything, or at least he says he is!
Servilia – Julius Caesar’s mistress and mother of Brutus.
Wearing a red cloak over her gown and a black pearl in her headdress, Servilia is a bit past her sell by date, heavily made-up and out to impress.
Additional Characters in the 18 player game
Drearios – Julius Caesar’s Tutor.
Wearing a dun-coloured tunic and carrying a stone tablet, Drearios is a Greek tutor who will bore you to tears.
Canidia – Professional poisoner.
Dressed in a tunic and cloak, Canidia has a pocket full of potions, plants and business cards.
Additional Characters in the 20 player game
Privatus – Caesar’s secretary.
With his ink-stained toga, a pen behind his ear and with armfuls of scrolls, Privatus looks like a man who’s overworked.
Florentia – Julius Caesar’s childhood nurse.
Dressed in a tunic and wearing a cap and apron, Florentia carries a baby’s rattle and bib as she’s the fussy, mothering type.
