 My father was a General of the Emperor Constantine,​ so we were comparatively well off compared to most in those days. Our family had a long history, my father even told a story of one of our ancestors getting our land from Sulla. Siding with the man that would be Emperor got him a lot on influence, and quite a bit of wealth. There was a problem though. My father was a pagan. He followed Constantine'​s orders to fight for God, but in his heart he still prayed for Mars' aid. My father was a General of the Emperor Constantine,​ so we were comparatively well off compared to most in those days.

 My next life of any consequence developed as a bit of a happenstance. I had found some work as a Architech'​s assistant in Constantinople. I could have rejoined the legion but the Empire was changing... The Christians were spreading faster than the clap in a brothel... What?! Despite the modern world perceptions of the past, I can say this with conviction the more things change the more they stay the same. My next life of any consequence developed as a bit of a happenstance.

 The ship I boarded was bound for Hippo Regius. My ship never made it there. We came under attack by Vandals and the captain attempted to make a deal. Many feared being sold into slavery but the Vandals apparently were having none of that and opened fire upon us. We ran aground a few miles east of Hippo Regius, and the survivors made their way on foot. I chose the less common option. Faced with a choice of going east or west I chose to go west, perhaps it was time to join whatever military was there. All I had with me was an empty wine cask, and my knapsack. The ship I boarded was bound for Hippo Regius. My ship never made it there.

 The modern world is very remarkable in one respect, there'​s a clear delineation between legal and illegal. The system of checks and balances keeps the two separate. In antiquity, the line was a bit murkier. I was an upstanding citizen of the Vandal Kingdom precisely because of two things: One, I was friends of the king. Two, I spent money not on audacious things, but on ensuring allies got a cut, and reinvesting. The modern world is very remarkable in one respect, there'​s a clear delineation between legal and illegal.
