 I was born in the 1st Century of the Common Era. My parents witnessed the crucifixion of Jesus and passed their eyewitness accounts on to me. When I came of age I moved north to the uneventful Roman province of Thracia where I settled into a humble abode in the city of Byzantium, hearing of the turmoil coming out of Rome with Emperors such as Caligula. I soon became concerned when I - and others - began to notice my lack of aging. To head that off, I turned to the sea and began trading from the northern Black Sea to Lusitania and Britannia in the far western Empire. I was born in the 1st Century of the Common Era.

 I had arrived in the Eastern Roman Empire at a pivotal moment, it had appeared. The Emperor Romanus IV had lost a battle against the Muslim Turks at the town of Manzikert in Armenia and Anatolia was failing rapidly. I was used to the betrayals and intrigue of Rome, but the intrigues taking place in Constantinople was dizzying. Generals and even peasants could aspire to become Emperor if they were canny enough. It was a far cry from the days of the patricians and hand-picked successors. I had arrived in the Eastern Roman Empire at a pivotal moment, it had appeared.
