Themistocles the Old
Optimates Senator from Telmyre
Senior member of the Senate and of the Optimates Party, Themistocles knew his years of glory under the rule of the late Empress Sophia. He proved an exceptional tactician during his service as Strategos in Gaercimia, but did not prove as successful as a politician in Majesta. He is a conservative who hates the populist rhetoric and pays respect to the Ancient Gods and History. For him, honours should be earned honourably on the battlefield and not through political scheming. He firmly believes in law, order and virtue.
Themistocles is the candidate of the Optimates to replace Pactobius as Consul.
