First introduced by Timbrien and outfitted by La Familia Gladiatoria via Caius Ignatius Pontianus, Antonius "Twyg" Gracchus began his path at the Nutley practice in Settmour Swamp. Whether on the melee field, between bouts in the tourney, or at an event, you will hear him known as either Twyg or Gracchus.
Antonius Twyg Gracchus' skills were built and are constantly tested through his fortuitous proximity to Settmour Swamp with the ability to train at the Nutley practice. From his residence in the Canton of Northpass within the Crown Province of Østgarðr, Twyg's network of fighters to learn from is ever-extending, and you can find him frequenting weekly practices as far North as Bergental to practice with his House - La Familia Gladiatoria and at the Southernmost regions of Iron Bog
Twyg's first event was 100 Minutes War XXXII, where he participated in both the Novice tourney and main event. This sealed the deal on his expected desire to continue to be a part of the rich world of our making.
His preferred weapon types are sword, shield, and glaive. He prefers fast harrier/flanking roles as a part of Running with Scissors
Antonius Twyg Gracchus hails from lands west of the Danube, though he made his way east and has incorporated into duty with the Roman Legions. Since he is of good family standing and considering the recent changes of Septimius Severus, he has been able to join the lowest rank of the Praetorian Guard. During his time in Rome he met his wife Salvia Angelii. His duties are administrative, and he moonlights as an artisan and leather armorer. However, as with all Praetorian Guardsmen, he hones his combat skills frequently and is ready to fight for both Emperor or Monarch.
