  • History: Caelius was orphaned as a child and grew up on the streets of Pompeii. He was a notorious pickpocket growing up, stealing anything from food to Denarii. He spent a few years ambushing traders with a small group of men that he met. These traders would often travel alone in and out of Rome with carts full of valuables, they usually had no men protecting them. In his later years he has stolen from some of Pompeii’s richest citizens, and lived a comfortable thieves life.

He eventually got caught attempting to hide in Rome after stealing the Soldier’s Tear from Lady Aurelia, who was the wife to Senator Consus Metellus, and were close friends with Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus. The Soldier’s Tear was necklace with a gold pendant, and had a large blue emerald in the center. It was originally given to Floriana Severan by Pompeius Magnus himself. Floriana was the widowed pregnant wife of the recently fallen general Quintillus Gratian. Since then the Soldier’s Tear has been passed down the lineage to descendants of Floriana, and was currently in the posession of Lady Aurelia. Caelius was sentenced to death by combat in the Colosseum for his crimes.
