Mevm nomen est Qvintvs Avrelivs Procvlvs

Name: Avrelivs Lindvm Britannicvs
Rank: ProConsul of Rome & Legate of 10th Fretensis
Origin: Britannia

My name is Aurelius Lindum Britannicus, the son of Cossus Cornelius Lentulus and Octavia Arria of the Julii. Born in Britannia while my father was Praetor and Magistrate of the province. I grew up in Britannia in the lands of the Celtic Tribe Cantiaci (Cantii). The Cantii, the most civilized of tribes, being friends and allies of Rome.

“Ex his omnibus longe sunt humanissimi qui Cantium incolunt, quae regio est maritima omnis, neque multum a Gallica differunt consuetudine.”

“Of all these (British tribes), by far the most civilised are they who dwell in Kent, which is entirely a maritime region, and who differ but little from the Gauls in their customs.”

De Bello Galicum. Julius Ceasar

Having been sent to Rome for tutelage, becoming popular amongst his peers he soon caught the eye of the Emperor and was appointed questor. News reached him that his father, Cossus Cornelius, was ambushed by a Catuvellauni war band, enemies of the Cantii. His father survived due to the actions of the Cantii king and his bodyguard, however the king, mortally wounded in the attack and leaving no heirs but a female princes Breonna.  The Roman Governor of the province appointed Cossus as Praetor of Cantii lands.  Cossus Cornelius took Breonna under his protection in gratitude for her father’s bravery, she was freed and made a roman citizen.

Aurelius was given leave to return to Britannia.  Having returned he found his father healed from his wounds and had been promoted as Legatus of the Roman garrisons of Londinium and Dvrovernvm Cantiacorvm. Aurelius spent many years in Britannia and after his father’s death Aurelius inherited his titles, deeds and lands. In the meantime, Brionna, spending much time in his household, fell for the Legatus and eventually they married. Aurelius, in time, was recalled to Rome. Here another adventure began.
