The peerage traditions in Master Tiberius's lineage do not ask potential students, in arts, combat, or works, if they would be interested in forming a mentor-student relationship. Master Tiberius is open to discussions, and should be approached by individuals, rather than the individual hoping that he will contact them. He welcomes conversations about students, potential students, and those wondering about all this stuff.

Virtual or Ethereal Court: Tiberius would welcome awards in virtual or ethereal court. He is comfortable receiving at-distance awards.


Tiberivs of the Ivlii, called Rvfvs due to his hair color, has been named a Senator in the recent census. He campaigns with the 10th Legion, commanding a squadron of the ala Scubulorum (Cavalry). Tiberivs has served under the sign of the bull for several years, often traveling back to Arpinum to take the next step on the mos maiorum. He has just completed a term of civilian service as a Cediles and was recently deployed to Macedonia.

A strict Catonian, Tiberivs observes the festivals and holy days imprinted on him from birth. Each Roman action, properly executed, is a sacred institution. While he sees the difficulties in Res Publica, he believes that the Roman system is the culmination of civilization, raised by the gods, and protected by the hearts of true men.

Tiberivs is dominus of a large latifundia and hopes that the current difficulties within the Senate will not impede his ability to progress.

Tiberivs took the cognomen Primus, after a victory in personal combat (with another Tiberius) at the Great Pennsic War.

Tiberius Iulius Rufus Primus was named Aquilifer (Grant of Arms) of the Great Northern Army of the East Kingdom.
