--------------------------------- Personality & History
Born in the port city of Tallo, Andrus is a proud Anders man, despite the fact that he is currently a slave in the Tevinter Imperium. Years of hard labor and fighting upon the sands of the arenas has done nothing to diminish his dignity, which is in fact what he often fights for.
Andrus’ early childhood was rather unremarkable. Born to a dock worker and a tavern maid, he lived in relative poverty, although the child never truly knew this. His parents worked hard to take care of him and his younger brother, August. Although they went without such things as an education, they were always well fed and happy. Both boys held dreams of becoming legendary warriors, perhaps with the Grey Wardens of Weisshaupt, spending many a day ‘sparring’ with sticks on the beaches.
Those fun days would soon take a turn for the worse, however, when in 9:27 Tevinter slavers came upon the pair at the beach. While Andrus was able to cause enough of a distraction to allow his brother to escape, he was taken into captivity and transported to (location), Tevinter.
Always a tall and strong young man, Andrus was put to work on various building projects and hard labor within the city. No one seemed to care that he was no more than a child but only that he worked. Although he wished for his freedom again, several times Andrus was witness to what happened to slaves who even whispered of an attempt and remained docile, even if he inwardly seethed.
One day, his pent up rage would be put to the test in the markets, where he would end up striking a rather cruel overseer in defense of a young woman whom he was wrongly abusing. Such an action would have likely seen his back stripped of flesh or him put to death were it not for the interference of an upper class Tevene woman, who immediately purchased him for her Ludus. He would immediately begin his training at the Ludus Umidus in 9:36.
While he had heard of the gladiators, Andrus never expected to be trained as one. However, he found it a better existence than menial labor. The prospect of gaining his freedom in the games was something else which interested him and so he took quickly to his training within the Ludus Umidus. Underneath the doktore there, Andrus trained endlessly with the other recruits, learning how to wield a great axe with proper skill befitting a gladiator. Proper nutrition and endless exercise saw the young man growing in both musculature and height as well; soon he seemed the very picture of a gladiator.
He had yet to achieve victory in the arena, however, although that would come as well. The year 9:40 would see Andrus to his first successful bout in a real gladiatorial fight. Many more would come afterwards. Most notably, in 9:41 he would be pitted in a doubles fight with a qunari by the name of Jhaverzhiel that would become his lifelong ally/rival within the Ludus Umidus. Somehow, the others seemed to think that the pair looked alike and dubbed them “The Twins,” although Andrus does not see the resemblance at all.
Since then, Andrus has fought in the arena in the name of Domina Emilia Vipera. Although freedom was his original goal, Andrus is no longer certain if he fights for that or simply for glory and honor in the arena…
