Free or slave, men or women, gladiators are skilled fighters who fight to entertain a crowd, sometimes to the death. Their reward is glory, gold or the freedom. Former gladiators are also excellent body guards, trainers and enforcers. This is not an attempt to make a historic gladiator, but a fantastic one who fight in coliseums of heroic fantasy.
