Serafeim

A Spartan Warrior

Description:
Bio:
Serafeim was born just outside of Sparta in a small village.  His parents were Helots, but he was taken in at the age of 7 to enter the agoge (Spartan soldier and youth training).  His youth was like any other Spartan youth, training for battle and general education.  Serafeim excelled in agoge and began to love the taste of battle.  At the age of 12, he was entered the traditional Spartan Pedantry and began his long term relationship with his mentor: Vius.  Vius was an extremely brutal and vicious warrior; but a strong and determined man.  Vius was “kind” to Serafeim in the sense of preparing him to be a warrior.  Every year, Vius would give Serafeim a puppy to raise for the year as his pet, to then sacrifice to the god of Ares the following season.  Serafeim still knows the name of each of those dogs he owned over six years.  When Serafeim was 18 he entered the military ranks as the King due to his notorius Krypteia (the graduating ceremony where a Spartan is sent to the Helot population with only a knife to kill them).  Serafeim is said to kill over forty Helots in one night (which was almost the entire village), including his own parents which he specifically searched for.

Serafeim is now the King of this Doric Village, called Sparta.  He has led his army into many skirmishes and battles on nearby warring villages.  He, after a vision from Ares of a burning Argite, has set march to conquer Argos.  Ares will be pleased.  Argos will burn.
