- THE BASTARDS -Gladiator Bastards has six selectable characters (four of them must be unlocked)
AliaA furious gladiatrix who wants to nail Caligula for slaughtering her dad to amuse his friends. She is prepared to take on the worst scum in the Roman gladiator arenas with only her fists and kicks just to look at her mortal enemy eye to eye!
AmiraA twin sister of Alia who also has a beef with the emperor. This gladiatrix is armed with razor sharp gallus (a Roman sword) and unpenetrable shield. All those who come between her and Caligula will be chopped into pieces -including her own twin sister!
SextusA scientist from the future who claims that the aliens have captured him and brought him back in time to kick Caligula’s ass. Arbelas (sort of like a Roman cookie cutter) in one hand and a driller like instrument in another, Sextus cuts through the enemy hordes like a warm knife through butter!
NubianDisguised as a black slave, Nubian is actually a secret agent for the nubian Government. A kind of ancient 007. His orders are to take down the Caligula's Empire. Using his two Gallus blades, The Nubian will not fail on his ambitious mission!
SteinnSteinn has entered in the gladiator games not for killing, but for love. He wants to meet his immortal idol, The Emperor Caligula and maybe get invited to Caligula’s infamous orgies! Armed with deadly spears and a shield, Steinn wants to be the first gay gladiator champion of the first empire!
Rex PetilliusEven Roman empire had it’s share of serial killers and Rex Petillius was certainly one of the most notorious ones! He was captured by the centurions and forced to kill at the arenas. But that is what Rex Petillius does best with his trident and sharp net!
