Spartacus War of the Damned – Spartacus

A Thracian warrior forced into slavery, Spartacus became the gladiator known as the Bringer of Rain.

After losing his wife Sura and thirsty for vengeance, he led the gladiators in an uprising to escape the ludus and would eventually defeat the legions of Gaius Claudius Glaber and slayed the Roman praetor.

Now, Spartacus has amassed an army in the thousands. He knows he is not only responsible for the lives of every man, woman, and child in his rebellion but also for continuing to inspire them to fight for freedom from oppression and stand up against the mighty Roman Republic.

Spartacus is played by Liam McIntyre.

Spartacus War of the Damned – Crixus

Once the Champion of Capua, and rival to Spartacus, he has since become one of the rebel leader’s most trusted generals.

He blamed himself for losing Naevia, his love from the House of Batiatus, to a fate worse than death. But, with Spartacus’ aid, he rescued her from the mines, almost sacrificing his own life in the process.

After an emotional reunion, he trained Naevia to fight like a gladiator and then watched as she took her revenge on Ashur.

Now, Crixus has a mind focused on war, and the defeat of the Roman Republic. He’ll do it all with Naevia by his side, and he’ll see hell before being separated from her again.

Crixus is played by Manu Bennett.

Spartacus War of the Damned – Gannicus

Long before Spartacus was forced to become a gladiator, Gannicus, a gifted fighter, was one of the few who earned his freedom in the arena.

After wandering free he was brought back to the games to face Crixus and his former brothers in combat but he chose to assist in their escape instead. After heavy persuasion to join the rebellion, Gannicus finally acquiesced when it became clear that Spartacus’ hope of freedom for all was genuine.

Although highly respected, he shuns authority in favor of wine and women, sharing his bed with the beautiful Saxa. Despite his boyish lust for life, he is a key asset that Spartacus depends upon.

Gannicus is played by Dustin Clare.
