Appearance

Play By: Fabio Mancini
Distinguishing Features: Cassius has scars all over his shoulders and back, all from his short time with Aurav.

Personality



Personality:

Cassius is obedient. He grew up knowing nothing different and it has shaped his personality. He is flexible to whatever new desire or wish is thrown at him that day. He has virtually no embarrassment left in him and that has provided the slave with a bit of freedom within his own mind. He is just as comfortable naked as clothed and he wonders if as a freed man that might give him an edge over others. A confidence that few know, always worried what others think.

As a Prince, Cassius is muted. He says the right things. He knows Protocol. He is not good at the numbers and contracts usually associated with his caste. He has a deep well of anger within him, but he never lets it out. It is waiting, deep below, for a time when he can let it free and not be met with the Ring in answer. For now, he puts on a calm outer shell that lets him survive as a slave. This calm demeanor is thoughtful, articulate, and helpful, but it isn't the true Cassius. It is a face that he has grown to understand his Masters like.

The true Cassius is...well...the slave does not fully know yet. He has not been given the space or opportunity to develop his own self. He is always shaping his desires and actions towards others. So, if asked what he wanted, the Prince would be at a loss. He wants happiness, but he also wants revenge. He wants to move on, but he is haunted by the intensity of his past. He wants to let his anger and cynicism out, but he is terrified that the repercussions will be more than he can handle. And behind this all, is the fear that he will continue to fail his daughter and his Queen for his entire life. 

So, he is stuck in the muted gray space of an obedient slave, happy and helpful. At least it is safe there.

Likes:
  • 1 Art - Cassius has a lot of free time as a pleasure slave and he often uses it to make things. He like to make tiny sculptures out of household table-wear or drawings on the back of napkins. He has never had any formal training and often has to hide his interest, but in his wildest dreams he would be an artist. 
  • 2 Bellona - Cassius never thought he would be able to love anyone unconditionally, but then his daughter was born. He would do anything for her, anything. She is the only person in his life where there is no conflict. He does not have to hide his emotions. She is simply pure joy.
  • 3 Sex - Through the rape and subjugation he has experienced, Cassius has risen up with a weapon. And that weapon is the very thing that scarred his life. It is his only true strength and through the decades he has learned that sex can get him many things that he wants in life.
Dislikes:
  • 1 Aurav - Out of all the Masters Cassius has had, Aurav is the worst. He enjoys torture for tortures sake and loves to whore Cas out to his most deranged friends. There is often no rhyme or reason to his cruelty and Cas finds it difficult to know how to act in his presence.
  • 2 His scars - Before he came into Aurav's service, he was flawless. Few wanted to mare his skin in case they wished to sell him. Who would want a scarred pleasure slave after all? Aurav had no such thoughts and Cassius knows that it will be harder to seduce people, his one way of survival, now that he is scarred.
  • 3 People - Cassius does not get attached to people. The only people he cares about are Bellona and Precious and he knows that is even too many. People are how he gets hurt and so he avoids attachment to almost everyone.
Fears:
  • 1 Safframate - Cassius values control. This is strange as a slave, but he means the control he has while pleasuring a client. He knows how to make them scream and it takes considerable skill. with the drug though, all control is lost and he becomes more like an animal than a person. That coupled with the fact that there is simply not an ounce of pleasure for himself while under the influence of the drug, makes him terrified of it.
  • 2 Losing his family - Precious and Bellona are the only two people he cares about in the Realm. They are his reason for living. If he was to lose both of them, he simply does not know what the point of surviving would be anymore.
  • 3 Precious - While Precious is one of the two people he cares about most, Aurav has managed to twist that love into a double-edged sword. He fears his attachment to her, because it has only gotten his Queen raped and beaten. Every time he tries to make her smile or laugh, the consequences are so dire, that he fears the interaction, even as the bond pulls him to do it.
Craft Strengths:
  • 1 Seduction Craft: Cassius has become so adept at using this Craft that it is like a weapon. An angry male will forget his worries and end up writhing in pleasure on the ground instead. The slave has envisioned taking a knife and stabbing many of his clients through the heart while they are so occupied with his Craft, but he does not dare with the collar around his neck. If it were to be taken off...the Craft might be used for a deadlier purpose.
  • 2 Emotional Manipulation: Cassius was used for a variety of sexual purposes. Sometimes he needed to calm the nerves of a witchling that he was seeing through her Virgin Night or other times he would lessen the desire to inflict pain on him. It is a subtle Craft and one few people realize he is employing on them to get what he wants.
Craft Weaknesses:
  • 1 Combat Craft: Cassius tried to use this Craft once when he was still a child, during a tantrum, and he was punished so severely that it left a lasting scar on the Craft itself. If he were to try and use it again, the fear and apprehension would wrap around it, limiting or outright stopping the Craft all together.
  • 2 Power Bolts: Cassius was taught how to do this in case he ever needed to protect one of his Masters, but they never took. His Craft specialty is so focused on subtle touch and manipulation that the brute force of a power bolt was difficult for him to perform.
Life Story

Family:
Mother: Morganna Decius - White to Rose Healer
Father: Unknown
Siblings: None that he knows about
Daughter: Bellona Longinius - Opal Healer (born 183 AP)

History:

Augustine Decius made the mistake of falling in love with a daughter of a Hundred family. He was a merchant, fairly well off, but certainly not of a high enough station to satisfy his love’s family. That and he was a widower, already having a daughter. Despite the family’s objections, he and his love ran away, intending to get married and start a new life. The couple was found on a boat together and Augustine and his daughter were sold into slavery for the kidnapping and his attempt to rise above his station.

Augustine and his daughter, Morganna, were soon separated and it was then that the Healer became pregnant with Cassius. Her owner had paired his mother with a dark jeweled male in hopes of a Queen to aid their desire for power, so the boy was a disappointment. He did, however, have a nice face and a promising Birthright, so he was ripped from his mother and sold for training in the art of pleasure Craft at twelve. He remembers that day, even all these decades later. His mother screaming his name and his small hands reaching out for her.

He found out later that Morganna died trying to have another child for her owner a few years later.

Passed from owner to owner every decade, Cassius became masterful at the art of eliciting pleasure from anyone he was put in front of. His talents ranged from gentle, helping someone through their Virgin Night, to painful. Whatever his Master wished. As the years went on he began to develop his Seduction Craft into a weapon, a way to ensure that his clients were far to occupied to report anything less than pleased exhaustion to his Masters.

It was around his 60th birthday that Cornelia spotted him. He was at a party, escorting a witch as her date, and the Black Widow made up her mind to have him. She was planning on having a child soon and she liked Cassius’ face, as well as his dark Jewels. The purchase was struck and Cassius realized that Cornelia was a cruel Mistress. He was well trained, but she still insisted on forcing safframate into his system when she was most fertile.

He developed a fear of the drug, his usual careful control destroyed by the mindlessness of the need it possessed. Cornelia got what she wanted though, her belly growing large and Cassius terrified at the thought. He did not want a child. He had grown up as a slave, with no will of his own, and he didn’t want that for any child. No one asked him what he wanted though, so Cornelia gave birth to a baby girl nine months later, the scent of a natural Healer wafting into the air.

It was that moment that Cassius thought his heart might break, because it filled up so completely with love.

And Cornelia saw it. She delighted in using Bellona against the male and she was positively gleeful when she could humiliate him in front of her. Still though, through it all, Cassius managed moments with his daughter. He taught her about the stars, like his own mother had, and often was the one that did her hair, picked out her clothes, and made her laugh. Cornelia did not like how close Bellona was becoming to her father, so she gifted Cassius to her brother, Aurav.

It was there that the slave met his Queen, Precious Bannok. It was both the best and the worst day of his life. If Cornelia had been cruel, Aurav was evil. His hatred for the half Eyrien Queen knowing few bounds. It delighted him to have one of her males in his control as well. He often tortured the two together and they learned to bury their bond. Cas also learned what it was to fail over and over as a male. Every time his Queen was harmed he took it as a failing on his part, the instinct to protect her never fading. It hit him hard and the constant reminder began to erode whatever life was left within him.

The final straw was when Cornelia invited him to Bellona’s Birthright ceremony. He dutifully attended, knowing that she was likely to deny him paternity, but a small part of him holding out. It was always that hope that killed the slaves the most. He watched as his little girl held up her Jewel and waved at him, right before Cornelia denied paternity.

He was destroyed, as she had wanted, and when he sought comfort from his Queen, they were swiftly punished.

Soon after, Precious was sold away and a small crack appeared in Cassius’ chalice. His daughter had been taken from him and now his Queen. He didn’t have anything left. Nothing but a long life as nothing more than an object.

He knew he wouldn’t survive much longer and, in truth, he didn’t want too.

Show Us What You've Got

Character in Play:

Cornelia Longinius held a long leather leash that attached to the metal collar around Cassius Decius’ neck. She trotted him through the halls, his chest bare and tight leather breeches plastered against his legs. There was no blush at his cheeks though. He was used to the humiliation that the Black Widow thrived on, even with his four-year-old daughter present. She bounced next to her mother, her long black hair in a ponytail that Cas had taught her how to do himself. She was on the other side of Cornelia as Cassius trailed dutifully behind her. After five years as her slave, he knew better than to let the leash grow tight with too slow a pace.

They swept into a room and Cassius kept his eyes on the ground as Aurav swept his arms out to greet his Mistress. They exchanged pleasantries and the Prince wondered why he was here at all, why Bellona was here at all. It was unlike Cornelia to take the two of them anywhere together.

As the door behind them opened, Cas felt his body stiffen and he turned ever so slightly to see...the most beautiful woman he had ever laid eyes on. He couldn't breathe. He couldn't think. The slave took a small step towards the woman and the leash tightened, pulling him back in place hard.

Confusion played through his eyes as he stared at the witch, his heart beating so loud that he couldn’t hear anything else. What was wrong with him? He blinked, dazed, taking a deep breath of the other slave’s scent and detecting...nothing. 

“My pet, come here.” Cornelia pulled the leash tight and forced Cassius to lurch forward, her mouth meeting his in a passionate kiss that the Prince returned with nothing less than the intensity his Mistress desired. Even as his mind stayed on the kneeling witch so close to him. It was as if she radiated energy, pulling him closer and closer.

“I’ve decided to gift you to my brother. You’ve become a bad influence on Bellona and I can’t have that. If you’re a good boy I might bring her by to see you sometime. If not…” She smiled wide, her white teeth glowing in the light. The slave jerked back from her like he had been burned at her words.

She was giving him away? She was taking Bellona from him? Panic. Complete and utter panic overtook his body. “Mistress--”

Cornelia cut him off with a sharp pain from the Ring.

“Behave, pet. Now say goodbye to Bellona. Tell her you’re sorry you won’t see her again.” Pain far more intense than that of the Ring shot through him as he dropped to his knees and opened his arms for his daughter. She rushed into them, her small head settled against his chest as Cassius inhaled the scent of her hair. “I’m sorry...I’m sorry, Bella. I-I won't be able to see you again.” He placed a kiss on her forehead even as the small child began to cry, clinging to her mother. Cassius stared at his daughter as Cornelia unclipped his leash and handed her brother the Prince’s Ring. She didn’t even spare a glance back at her pet as she strode out of the room with the most precious thing in Cas’ life.

Already shaking, the slave staying on his knees until his new Master bid him to stand, Cassius tried to keep control. He tried to breathe in and out. In and out. He locked eyes with the woman across from him and, almost, he found the calm he was looking for.
