    Duke Quintus Aurelius Dracontius was born of noble parents during the early Republican period. Upon reaching adulthood, he grudgingly accepting the responsibility of Roman military service and slowly rose within the ranks of his Legion. He eventually earned the rank of Tribunus Militum, surprising everyone…himself included. Not the most renowned military commander, he was subsequently stationed in far-flung Britannia. While exiled to that barbarian-filled bog island, he grew to particularly detest the cold climate (and necessity to don the terribly low-class braccae required to cover his freezing legs). He eventually won his transfer from that dreadful province and was finally assigned a military ambassadorship to the much more acceptable Mediterranean climate of Ansteorra. He hopes to retire in this post, passing the days training troops in the science of sword and scutum combat.
