Nomen mevm Caivs Cornelivs Pictor est

Name: Caivs Cornelivs Pictor
Rank: Miles Gregarivs
Origin: Mediolanivm – Gallia Cisalpina

Caius originates from Mediolanum, the eldest from a family of artists; hence they hold the cognomen of Pictor which means painter. Since he lives at the north of the Italian peninsula, his complexion is fairer than the rest of his comrades.

As per family tradition, it is expected that the children of the Pictor family serve some years within the roman army, to learn to fend for themselves. Hopefully they might retire to continue the family trade for doing art for numerous patrons within the city. Caius was selected to join the Legio Decima Fretensis, as apart doing his regular soldiering he also does assist with office work related to his Centuria since he is one of the few soldiers who can read and write. In his spare time, Caius spends his time designing the likeness of his comrades on available parchment or animal skin.
