Shattered Swords of Hyboria
Appius Sempronius Varus
Appius Sempronius Verus is the son of Tiberius Sempronius Varus, Lord of Isurium, a small city in the North of Nemedia near the Border Kingdoms. More bookish than his father wants, he is not interested in the day-to-day ruling or other duties of the nobility.
For all of his apparent bookishness, he is just as comfortable on the back of a horse (probabaly the only thing his father could get him to practice regularly, along with swordplay).
Appius has a tendency to question his decisions, and suffers from bouts of pride.
