Titus Pullo is the son of Benigio, and Celia Pullo making him the true heir of House Pullo, but he surenendered this right to his younger brother. Titus Pullo has three siblings in the form of Angelo, Carmela, and Paulo Pullo of which his brother Angelo is the current heir of House Pullo and has become the governor of the province of Sicily through the power of House Pullo, his sister Carmela was an outcast of House Pullo due to her relationship with a women, and she nearly died before Titus took her in to his care at Ravenna where she continues to live, and his sister Rosa is an influencial member of House Pullo of whom has several children with her husband. Titus Pullo has one child in the form of Yvonne Pullo of whom he fathered while he was stationed in Hispania, and following the death of her mother he has taken her into his household where she serves inside the Fourth Legion.
Titus Pullo has become the commander of the Roman IIV. Legion which is stationed at Ravenna, and in this position he has become the main communicater between the Kingdom Of Lucerne, and the forces of the Roman Empire.
Titus Pullo was born in the Roman city of Palentia, in souther Italy to the very wealthy House Pullo, where because he was the oldest child he was made the heir of the house, and was constantly placed in situations to improve his skills for this eventual task. In this southern area of Italy he was born to Sicilians who are a disrespected sub group of Italians, and despite how rich his family was whenever they went to Rome he found they were treated as a sort of secondary citizen and that ate away at him. At sixteen he would abandon his birthright as the heir of House Pullo to his younger brother and join the army alongside his cousin and best friend Appius Pullo, where their families connections led them into to a command position within the Sixth Legion. Titus Pullo would become very close with Lucius Vorenus and together the two would join their legion in the reinforcement of Africanas during the Fifth Waagh there and it was during this that they watched as the Orcs overran the entire Africanas province with Titus and Lucius just barely managing to escape fleeing back to Italy. Following the collapse of the roman province of Africanas Titus Pullo continued to want nothing to do with his family birthright refusing to return to Sicily instead joining Lucius in returning to Rome where alongside Lucius he rose further in the Sixth Legion becoming a Legate Prefict and following this promotion he and Lucius travelled with the Sixth Legion back to its home base in Hispania. In Hispania Titus Pullo found his calling as he fell in love with the lands of Hispania and even when Lucius returned to Rome he remained behind and as he remained in Hispania for the years following the fall of Africanas he came to fall in love with the daughter of the prefict of Castille in the form of Mencia Madrasa and while this love between the two went on for years her marriage to a Spanish noble led to nothing physical happening for much of this time. The relationship between Mencia and her husband became increasingly violent leading to Titus to murder her husband and staging it as a bandit attack he and Mencia begin their physical affair leading to the pregnancy of Mencia and in order to logitimize their child and finally seal their love Titus convinsed her father to agree to have them married and they were then married in a quick ceremony and the two had a happy marriage in the months prior to the birth of their daughter Yvonne of whom would be born just prior to the Orcs arrival on the shores of Hispania. Since his command in Ravenna his family in House Pullo has constantly attempted to make him place his loyalty back into House Pullo, but he has drifted somewhere between utter loyalty to Rome, and House Pullo since the days of the War in France. Following the sacking of Rome the leadership of the city of Ravenna would come behind Titus Pullo and his daughter Yvonne Pullo when they went about leaving the Roman Empire, and founding the Kingdom of Remos.
- "My birth was relatively happy, as I was a part of a rich family I was given certain oppurtunities that I wouldn't have had otherwise. I knew I was fighter though from birth, and thus I quickly joined the army and ignored my birth right as heir to House Pullo."

Fall of Africanas
Main Article : Emblam Fifth Waaagh
| The Fall of Africanas|
For years they had rampaged across Africanas destroying all human presence there. It was only when they attacked us that we felt the need to open our eyes to the situation. Had we of taken this seriously sooner. There is no point to even pondering what would be different.
The lands of northern Africanas had become the sort of breadbasket of the expanding Roman Empire and in this way they had expanded themselves across much of North Africanas as far east as bordering Lahmia. It was as plans were being moved forward in the Senate to invade Lahmia that the first of the reports begin coming in about Orcish invasions into their holdings in Africanas. The Romans had long known of the Orcs, but they had inhabited the desert regions and as the Romans had no interest in these regions they had never scouted them out truly, and since diplomacy had always failed there was little true thought put into the Orcs, but this didn't change the fact that at this point the Orcs were mobilizing under a true direction and were preparing massive armies to take over Africanas and beyond.
The Romans unwilling to see their lands lost in Africanas send massive forces to Africanas including the 13th Legion where Lucius Vorenus gets on a boat meant to go to Africanas and on the boat ride he befriends another Legionare named TItus Pullo. During the travel the two also come to befriend two other legionaries in the form of Gnaes Bataitius, and Sextus Irentius of whom are also members of the same unit within the legion. The Roman army stops on the waters just northeast of Carthage where they plan to land south of Carthage and meet the Orcs on the battlefield, although as Lucius watches the commanders are very indifferent to the threat the Orcs pose and take little scouting plans before landing. Together the two land south of Carthage and take part in a massacre of a large force of Orcs led by the Roman Generals the army does not consolidate their holdings but instead they decide to stop and celebrate where in they bring dozens of girls from a nearby Africanas village and Lucius watches on guard as the generals and leadership of the Roman Army engages in a night of orgies, and gives no commands to scout the area something Lucius comments to Titus is going to get them all killed.
In the morning as the celebrations continue the Roman army is set upon by a larger force of Orcs and Lucius and TItus Pullo are inside the Villa that constitutes the central command of the army as the Orcs overwhelm the camp of the army and Lucius and Titus are able to get the Legatus of the Army onto a horse escaping with a few dozen other legionaries in the villa moving northward towards Carthage. The general is extremely young and named Pompeius Magnus II. a senator sent south by his father in order to prove himself and horrified at the failure he promotes Lucius, and Titus Pullo along with Gnaes Bataiatius, and Sextus Irentius of whom were among the survivors of the Roman Army. During this retreat northward they are met on the road by the Roman General Tullius Agentius of whom leads them into Carthage and tells them the Roman Army has been brutally defeated in the west as well and there scouts are reporting the Orcs are coming on mass towards Carthage itself.
Battle of Carthage
With the Roman Legions losing all across the Carthage province it was quickly clear that as they retreated they all moved towards Carthage where the Orcs followed them leaving only Tunisia to the southeast also holding out against the Orcs. Appius Pullo fought during the collapse of the Africanas province managing to reach Carthage with the sixth legion and it was here where he was killed fighting in the defense of the southern gate with his death saving the gate from complete collapse and allowing the army to escape.
Following the second assault by the Orcs the Romans are spent as a defence as several gatehouses are in ruins and most of the western wall has collapsed leading to the Generals to order the army to take to this ships. With not enough space for the population of Carthage the remaining population is forced to man the remaining defences alongside Lucius, Titus, and Gnaes, and Sextus of whom remain behind to assist in the defences. Holding out for another week they allow most of the remaining population to retreat by sea and with the last of the boats leaving Titus, Lucius, Gnaes, Sextus, and the badly wounded Secundus Julii prepare for their own death, but are saved by the return of Pompei of whom had dropped his soldiers off on a nearbye island in the hopes of coming back quicker.
Returning to Rome
Following the collapse of the roman province of Africanas that he continued to want nothing to do with his family birthright refusing to return to Sicily instead joining Lucius in returning to Rome. Titus makes this decision feeling a change in himself and he doesn't want his family to see him this way, and thus he sends a letter to his family declaring that he is surrendering his spot in the line of succession and will be devoting himself to the roman empire and her legions. Following this and alongside Lucius he rose further in the Sixth Legion becoming a Legate Prefict and following this promotion he and Lucius traveled with the Sixth Legion back to its home base in Hispania.
Time in Hispania
In Hispania Titus Pullo found his calling as he fell in love with the lands of Hispania and even when Lucius returned to Rome he remained behind and as he remained in Hispania for the years following the fall of Africanas he came to fall in love with the daughter of the prefict of Castille and while this love between the two went on for years her marriage to a Spanish noble led to nothing physical happening for much of this time.
Titus Pullo would return to Valencia for a time to continue the expansion of the fortress there but while there he was met by his brother Angelo Pullo of whom travelled to Hispania to see his brother and get his advise as he had been given Legate command of the Legio XVIII. Sicilia due to the bribery and manipulations of their father. While talking about this Titus revealed his love for Mencia and Angelo would convince him to take what he wanted and after spending several days together he travelled back to Castile where he found Mencia and the two would sleep together. Following being intimate Titus Pullo would discover bruises all over her body and Mencia revealed that her husband had became increasingly violent towards her and without thinking this would lead to Titus to murder her husband. Ambushing her husband on the road he would murder the man and staging it as a bandit attack he and Mencia begin their physical affair leading to the pregnancy of Mencia and in order to legitimize their child and finally seal their love Titus convinced her father to agree to have them married and they were then married in a quick ceremony and the two had a happy marriage in the months prior to the birth of their daughter Yvonne of whom would be born just prior to the Orcs arrival on the shores of Hispania.
Fall of Hispania
Main Article : Fall of Hispania
| Fall of Hispania|
We just sat there and let them destroy half the continent. It all could have been stopped so easily.
The Orcs inability to swim, or craft any sort of boat meant that the Romans had left this region dangerously undermanned believing that this water barrier would provide all the protection they needed. In fact there were more solders garrisoning the small Italian town of briensia, of which shared no border with any hostile nation, then there were in the castle of Gibraltar. As well as this undermanned garrison the original site of the castle was far enough back from the beach and the crossing that the soldiers couldn't see the crossing, and for this they relied on a small village with a large lighthouse along the coast. For years the Orcs of Emblam prepared for this crossing by massing a huge amount of troops in the lands of the former Roman provinces of Mauritania while the Kingdom of Senegal one of the human client states of Emblam begin preparations for the moving of the Orc armies across the Straits of Gibraltar. This bridge would be used by the Orcs to open up a new front in Europe, as they were being stalled in Africanas by the Nubian Empire, and the Kingdom of Lahmia.
Fall of Gibraltar
Ezio Ederiz arrives at the small castle of Gibraltar where he joins several other members of the Order of the Raven where they enter the castle and Ezio is introduced to a Roman Lieutenant named Postumius Iavolenus of whom hands him a letter with the seal of the Raven Order of which Ezio reads. The letter dictates that Ezio take the advise of Postumius in regards to which of the defenders of the castle he should kill as well as traveling southward where he is to also lead the Raven in massacring the small port which acts as the guardian of the Strait of Gibraltar.
Fall of Almeria
Main Article : Fall of Almeria
The Invasion of Hispania would begin with an event known as the Fall of Almeria where they forces of Emblam alongside their allies having already taken much of south-eastern Hispania would surround the port of Almeria where the bulk of the Roman Fleet in Hispania had made its port. By this time there were rumblings around the Roman Empire that things were happening in Hispania but for the part of Appius Procyon the Legate Prefict in charge of the scouting for the 13th Legion he had no signs of attack and his scouts were not relaying anything of importance to him due to the work of the Morag Tong targeting them. At the onset of the Fall of Hispania Appius was in a small fortress just north of Almeria where he was dealing with negotiations with a small tribe of Spaniards and it was in this position that he was forced to fight for his life when Orcs attacked his fort during the larger Fall of Almeria. Having survived and rallied his forces during the events of the Fall of Almeria it was Appius who joined the Legate of the 13th linking up with the larger surviving forces of the 13th as they begin retreating northward towards Alicante.
Battle of Central Hispania
The Romans would send in six Legions as reinforcements in an attempt to stall the Orcs advance while they built up the defences of Valencia, Tourone, and Castile. The Legions arrived in Valencia and begin moving towards their respective spots but in an unfortuante turn of events the 13th Legion under Lucius Vorenus, and the 4th Legion under Titus Pulo would be stuck in Ravenna at port and didn't arrive until it was too late for them to reach Castile, and thus two Legions meant to defend Valencia moved towards Castile. These four Legions fighting at Castile attempted delaying tactics for nearly a month, but each battle left them more and more drained and they were less and less effective. The 2nd Legion managed to escape west towards Portugal, and it sucked off a portion of the Orcs that followed them as they retreated at full speed towards Tourone. The 9th Legion would be massacred by the Orcs outside of the city as they attempted to make their way inside, while the 10th Legion would escape that Battle and make it inside the city. The final legion in the 5th Legion would flee eastward effectively and would meet up with the newly arrived 13th, and 4th Legions in Valencia.
Battle for Tourone
Main Article : Battle for Tourone
Alexander Rousset would lead the forces of the Dutchy of Aquitaine into the area of Tourone where they planned on assisting the pushing out of the Orc forces from Hispania, but upon arriving in Tourone they discovered that the 5th Legion was no longer attempting to fight an offensive conflict and instead was in a fighting retreat back to Tourone in preparation for holding the area to allow people to escape, and with this in mind Alexander would send his son and the fleet south while he joined the effort to hold Tourone.
The Tourone Gap
Main Article : Battle of Tourone Gap
As a large force of refugees flowed into the Tourone area the usually Bretonian nationalist Alexander Rousset made the decision to hold the gap open at the risk of his own forces and this led to the Battle of the Tourone Gap where Alexander kept the gap open then led an ordered retreat out of the gap back to Tourone but was mortally wounded during the battle dying shortly before they arrived at Tourone.
Battle for Lisbon
Main Article : Great Battle for Lisbon
Lisbon Counter assault
It would be Alain Rousset that would following the command of his father take the Aquitaine Fleet and move southward to link up with the Roman Fleet at Lisbon for what he planned to be an eventual assault on the Straights of Gibraltar. Arriving at Lisbon Alain discovered that the Roman Fleet at Lisbon had been defeated by a naval force from the Emblam allied nation of the Kingdom of Songhei and learning the Roman Fleet had fled westward trying to escape it was Alain who led the Aquitaine Fleet westward in support and would come upon the Roman Fleet and the Songhei engaged in a fleet battle and with his arrival they shattered the Songhei Fleet and captured or killed the entire Songhei Fleet.
Fall of Castile
With the Fall of the resistence the Orcs made a straight line for Castile, and the massive millions strong Orcs Army surrounded the city and put it under siege. For days they hammered at the city but the stalwart defenders in the 10th Legion would succesfully hold them off under the mistaken belief that the other three legions were on their way to releave them. While the other three wanted to assist the 5th Legion was damaged and unable to move, and the 13th and 4th were facing massive opposition in the form of the Orcs advancing on Valencia. With no resistence coming Lucius Vorenus sent a raven to Bretonia where he said in the letter that Castile was going to fall if the Bretonians did not advance and assist them. Upon reading the letter the Bretonian King is said to have wept tears at the precarious situation that Europe had found itself in, and with all the news shifting in to his throne room he was sure that the letter was authentic. With all of this in mind the Bretonians were scared so much that they flooded into Hispania and made full speed towards Castile. The Bretonians were slowed down by the constant battles and because of this they arrived days to late, and watched as Castile fell and with it the hope of a human Hispania.
Battle of Valencia
With Castile gone the Orcs rampaged towards Valencia, and Andorra where they would come to fight massive battles which for the first time went against them as they discovered the Bretonians were able fighters with competent commanders unlike the Romans. The three sides fought constant battles and with Lucius Vorenus now having complete control the Romans were fighting more effectively and thus Valencia was a no go for the Orcs.
War in France
Main Article : War in France
Titus Pullo was with his the fourth roman legion in its deployment at the north end of the Andorra mountain range. Their position was meant to protect the fortress of Andorra from being ambushed or trapped from behind. While in this position he was one of the first to discover how large the invading Orcish armies truly were. The soilders had been told that hundreds of thousands were the total of the entire Orcish armies, but it became clear very early on that millions were attacking.
With those kinds of numbers no amount of planning or skill was going to allow a small force like the fourth Legion to delay a force of hundreds of thousands, so the forces begin a slowing menouver.
Fourth Battle of Marseilles
Main Article : Fourth Battle of Marseilles
Command of Ravenna
The city was chosen by Titus Pullo as his general headquarters during the negotiations with the senate which possibly lead to work being done on the port for military purposes. The port of Classe originated and underwent extensive improvement under the most recent Augustus who wanted a praetorian garrison fleet of 250 vessels to provide better defence of the Adriatic Sea and the waters of the near eastern Mediterranean, thus it became main fleet base for the central Mediterranean. From that moment on the life of Ravenna revolved around the port and the fleet whose commander was the most prestigious man of the city. Trade flourished (export of asparagus, fish and timber coming from northern Italy) and industry (shipyards). The port was built about 4 km southeast of the city and its enormous harbour was dug out in the area containing the latest belt of sand dunes which had been gradually moving away from the older coastline. Titus Pullo wanted the great military port to be joined to the southern branch of the River Po by a wide canal. This canal, known as the 'Fossa Augusta', perhaps split into two branches before reaching Ravenna. One branch would have followed the line of the city walls thus reinforcing the defences of the city while the other ran right through the residential area and facilitated trade.
With his defences in good shape, Titus Pulo turned to his next internal directive which was to fortify the region. In this practise he began the construction of watchtowers and small forts throughout the western borders of the Roman Empire, and as well he began construction of what is now known as the city of Ravenia. Ravenia was constructed with the purpose of becoming the hub of all trade going north. This was a needed settlement as Ravenna shouldn't be allowing so many outsiders into it, and the paths into the Italian Peninsela were heavily controlled by Trolloc making the routes difficult to pass.
News begin to filter into Ravenna that the mad King Bill Lovie had been deposed by his son William Lovie, and in this process the new King was attempting to expand the trade of Lucerne. Hoping to have finally found a competant partner in Lucerne, Titus Pulo ordered diplomats to meet with the Lucernians to craft plans for increased trade.
These talks went exceptionally well, and trade began flowing between Lucerne and Ravenia.
Founding of Remos
Ravenna had become the centerpiece of the northern defence of the Italian Peninsula, and yet despite this their calls to be given more clout at the Senate of Rome. These calls were led by the Lady Yvonne Pullo of whom was the bastard born daughter of Titus Pullo but of whom had been raised to noble born by the Emperor himself on the words of Lucius Vorenus, and despite all of this she was treated with extreme disrespect over her bastard birth, and also for being from Ravenna of which was treated as a far flung colony by the Senators in Rome. Yvonna would go to her father's friend Lucius of whom had been the main reason for her rise from a bastard, and she found he was severely curtailed by the Senators of whom hated him for his resistence to their words. Realizing that without Lucius she would have no chance of seeing the Emperor she attempted to go to an actual Senate Meeting but was rejected from entering due to her Sicilian birth, and the other Ravennian's with her were extremely discusted to the point that it nearly came to violence, but Yvonna would pull them back and stopped it. Yvonne would leave with the Ravenna delegation and return to the fortress where she reported alongside the others about their mistreatment by the Roman Senators, and not long after this they learned of the Sack of Rome.
Following the sacking of Rome the leadership of the city of Ravenna would come together in order to meet on this issue, and as this meeting was being prepared Yvonna, would gather together some of her main supporters and would deliver a speach to them of which watched on by her father would convinse them to leave the Roman Empire and found their own Kingdom where they would all have a voice. As the meeting went forward Yvonne backed by her supporters and with her father standing behind her she was able to convinse the remaining nobles that she had what it took to lead them out of the problems of the Roman Empire and into a better future as an independant kingdom.
Alliance with Lucerne
Following the foundation of the Kingdom of Remos they would invite the Lucernians to Ravenna where they two sides would meet, and during this many marriages were created between the two as well as many other arrangements made that pushed the two kingdoms closer together and more specifically pushing Ravenna further away from Rome.
See Also : Lucius Vorenus
Lucius Vorenus for much of his military was very rarely without his right hand man, Titus Pullo. The two became best friends after being two of only 156 survivors of the massive 200,000 strong Roman army that took part in the disasterous Battle of Carthage. Retreating together out of Africanas they would stay a part of the same Legion for many years after and together they both went to Hispania where they were stationed during the Fall of HIspania. Titus Pullo and Vorenus would finally part after the birth of TItus Pullo's bastard daughter and he went to Ravenna where he was promoted to a Legionary Commander and Vorenus was promoted as well to the most powerful Legionarry in Rome.
