Agron is taller than average with a strong build, short brown hair, and consistent dark stubble. Throughout Blood and Sand, his hair is slightly dreaded and kept back. During the rebellion, he keeps his hair shorter, similar to Spartacus, and wears similar makeshift clothing.
During the events of War of the Damned, Agron has taken to wearing a set of makeshift armor fitted for him to appear unique on the field of battle and noticeable as one of the rebellion's leaders.
Agron is known for his sarcastic humor, alongside his brother Duro. Agron had a strong bond with his brother and because of that, he always felt the need to protect him. After Duro's death, Agron seeks vengeance with a thirst for Roman blood. Although that thirst and fire still burns, he shows a softer, gentler side when he is around his lover Nasir and holds a strong friendship with Spartacus as the two evolve into becoming each other's best friend, holding one another as brothers.
While he is friendly and cheerful among those he considers his friends, he is very aggressive and merciless towards those he considers his enemies, regardless if they pose a real threat or not. While Agron does possess leadership capabilities, his aggressive nature leads him to make impulsive decisions which put him into many confrontations. Like many of his people, he has a dislike of those with different origins. He distrusts Gauls and Romans in particular, but also most Syrians. However, his trust can be gained, examples being Crixus, Lucius, and Nasir, respectively. He also showed his kind side to Laeta as he helped her in setting up a tent even though he once proclaimed he'd kill her if it weren't for Spartacus, his reason for helping her was because he noted of Spartacus' affections towards her.
Agron also has difficulty in trusting those who are a stranger to him and isn't afraid to make it well-known. Despite this, his most notable and significant trait is his loyalty, which he holds in high regard, especially when concerning Spartacus. He is highly protective of Nasir.
In battle, Agron is shown to be ruthless to his enemies due to them being the cause of the death of his brother. This was seen when he bashes the head of a dead roman mercenary repeatedly until Spartacus has him stop.
Combat ProwessKnowing only blood and battle his whole life, Agron is a warrior first and foremost and willing to fight until the very end if necessary. Following his training as a gladiator, Agron grows to become an extremely formidable warrior. He shows impressive ability in using a sword and shield, dagger, single-sword as well in the ability to use a spear to his advantage. His skills in unarmed combat also allow him to take on stronger opponents for a time. Despite being impulsive in his actions, Agron's fierceness on the field of battle is his truest weapon that allows him to take victory against his enemies and shows his quality as a warrior.
During his time as a gladiator, when paired with his brother, they became known as The German Brothers.
Blood and Sand
Agron, along with his brother Duro, is bought from the slave market by Batiatus for 100 denarii along with four others. He is one of the stronger gladiators in Batiatus' Ludus, able to withstand Crixus himself, as seen when he fights with him to defend his brother. Agron is also a fast learner in the ludus and shows a strong fighting sense in combat. Making him the better of the two brothers. However, he often finds himself saving his
brother from certain death in and out of the arena and wishes that Duro would learn to fend for himself. Agron and Duro are partnered up together in their first match in the arena. Agron gains an advantage over his Hoplomachus opponent while Duro struggles against his opponent. Agron sees Duro being bested and close to being killed, so he grabs his fallen enemy's spear and throws it at Duro's opponent, killing him. Agron then gives his brother a nod, but Duro expresses disappointment.
Batiatus, seeing how Agron is a skilled gladiator, but Duro is less so, decide to separate them for future games, so Agron is not tied by the brotherly bond. When Agron learns of this, he attempts to ask Spartacus to see them paired together, but Spartacus states Batiatus could not be moved.
Agron and Duro ally themselves with Spartacus when he plans vengeance, after having enough of the mistreatment from the guards in the ludus. They set themselves to convincing the other gladiators to join their cause which turns out to be difficult when many of the Gallic gladiators refuse unless Crixus bands with them. On the day when many Capuan nobles visit the house, Spartacus accomplishes this, and the gladiator's revolt.
Agron and Duro fearlessly face the guards and Agron is proud to see his brother defeating many of them. The two pause a moment to meet, when a guard lunges at Agron from the back. Duro sees it and pushes his brother to safety and receives the blade himself. Agron immediately decapitates the guard, but Duro dies in his arms, much to his sadness and anger.
Afterward, Agron participates in the massacre, he watches as Spartacus fights and kills Batiatus. Once Spartacus ignites the former slaves' passion to fight Rome, Agron leaves the ludus freed with the rest of the gladiators and slaves.
Next to Crixus, Agron is one of the top leaders of the rebel group that Spartacus now commands, with his hair now trimmed down during the time gap between the seasons. He accompanies Spartacus on missions and fights against the Romans mercilessly. He is often at odds with Crixus whom the Gauls follow and make up half of the Rebels' number. Spartacus commands the Rebel group to search for Naevia as he promised Crixus he would, but Agron thinks that Crixus is being self-centered without any regard for the lives of the other Rebels.
After an assault on a Brothel in Capua to find more leads on Naevia, Agron sees Trebius who Crixus needs to interrogate. This is the same slaver who sold Agron and Duro to Batiatus and so Agron is immediately hostile at the sight of the Roman. As he attacks a dying Trebius, he is restrained by Crixus and Spartacus who tells him the man is meeting his end. Agron leaves in anger but satisfied that the man is to die.
When Glaber presents the suffering Aurelia in front of a Roman crowd and Spartacus attacks Glaber, Agron comes to his rescue with Crixus, Donar, and Rabanus. He carries Aurelia to safety, but she later dies. Spartacus decides that they will move south to look for Naevia, to which Agron objects, but Spartacus tells him that in the process they will free many slaves to strengthen their army. They must stand as one, he says, or they will fall divided.
The Rebels move south, following leads to Naevia's whereabouts. They attack a villa, killing the guards and dominus and freeing the slaves to join their army. Agron insists to Spartacus that they stop this endless search for Naevia, but Spartacus turns his attention towards the new batch of slaves that will join them. Later that night, Nasir who was a body slave to the dominus with position and respect makes attempt on Spartacus' life. Crixus and Agron suggest to kill Nasir, but Spartacus thinks that it will send the wrong message to those willing to join their cause and decides to train him instead. While the rest of the soldiers drink and celebrate in the house, Agron and Nasir engage in conversation. He tells Nasir of his brother Duro and gives him hope that he will become a strong rebel.
The rebels later attack a cart of slaves headed for the mines. Agron and Nasir interrogate one of the slavers about Naevia's whereabouts. After killing the slaver, Agron tells Crixus that Naevia is dead, driving Crixus into despair. Spartacus and Agron then plan to make camp at Vesuvius. On the morning that the slaves prepare to leave their hideout, Chadara, a friend of Nasir, mentions to him that she has noticed that he and Agron seem to share a bond.
Crixus later learns from Nasir that Naevia is not dead, but has been sold to the mines and attacks Agron in response. Agron tells Spartacus that he lied so that the rebels would not die just because Crixus cares for no one else besides Naevia. In response, Spartacus strikes Agron, saying that if it was Duro in Naevia's place, Agron would feel exactly the same way as Crixus. Spartacus orders the rebels to prepare for the mines, but Agron chooses to depart for Vesuvius instead and many other slaves follow him, including Nasir. Before the two groups part ways, Agron tells Spartacus to seek them out at Vesuvius if they find Naevia. Nasir now chooses to go with Spartacus, saying he could be helpful as he has been to the mines with his dominus before already. Agron is surprised but does not voice objection and the two part with a smile.
After Spartacus and his allies find Naevia in the mines, the Roman soldiers discover them and the rebels make a break through the forest for Agron's camp at Vesuvius. Spartacus' group suffers heavy casualties until only he, Mira, Naevia, and a seriously wounded Nasir are left. They near Vesuvius, but hear a large number of armed men approaching from behind. It turns out to be the rebels, led by Agron. Agron happily greets Spartacus and rushes to check on Nasir's condition afterward. Nasir smiles at him weakly and Agron smiles back.
The reunited rebel group finds salvation in a temple occupied by an elder Roman man named Lucius Caelius who hates the Romans due to past betrayals. Agron does not trust him at first because he is Roman; Spartacus does, however, so Agron stands down. Later, Agron has a talk with Naevia while they watch the medic tend to Nasir's wound. Agron tells Naevia that he is in her debt for what she has done for Nasir. Naevia rejects it, protesting that it is because of her that Nasir is near death. Naevia says how they should have never rescued her from the mines. Agron says he tried his best to stop them, but Naevia shuts him down telling him he should have done more. Naevia tells him how the only reason she'd been able to survive was the hope she had of seeing Crixus again, and now that he's been ripped from her arms, she wishes that Lucretia would have killed her instead to relieve her of this suffering. The conversation between the two makes Agron realize that he should act upon his feelings for Nasir before it is too late.
Upon hearing of Crixus' capture, Spartacus decides that he and a group of the rebels, including Agron, will sneak into the arena to save Crixus, Oenomaus, and Rhaskos. Nasir who is healing, but still weak, wants to go with them. Agron is happy to see that Nasir is getting better and gently tells him to stay behind and that this time, he'll go fight instead. He seals their happy reunion with an intimate kiss to which Nasir is surprised but happy.
Afterward, Spartacus, Agron, Mira, and the other rebels are underneath the literal bowels of the arena, overpowering the guards and get into position. As Spartacus and Agron wear the guards' uniforms and position themselves inside the arena, Mira and the rebels prepare to set fire to the supports. The execution becomes a battle between Gannicus and Oenomaus where Oenomaus strikes the first blow, raging at Gannicus for bedding his wife. Agron is impatient and says that he has second thoughts about the plan to Spartacus, but Spartacus tells him they must wait until Mira and the rebels get the fire going to take down the arena. When Rhaskos dies in combat, Agron shows signs of restlessness, yet must bide his time. The fire does its job as the stands collapsed, causing panic. Spartacus and Agron make their move, killing the soldiers and saving Crixus. A piece of the canopy from the stands falls on top of Gannicus and Oenomaus. After Agron, Spartacus and Crixus kill off all the soldiers, they see Gannicus standing over Oenomaus, pointing his swords at them. Gannicus then looks at Crixus and tells them to help him move Oenomaus, proving what side he’s really on. The rebels then all manage to escape in the same manner from which they came. When returning back to their current living area, Agron and Donar boast about the death of many Romans. Nasir then warmly greets Agron with a kiss. Afterward, Agron and Spartacus talk about their plans for Neapolis in retrieving more men for their cause. Gannicus overhears and makes fun of them for their ideals. Agron is skeptical of Gannicus and does not like him, though Spartacus warrants the worth of Gannicus on their side.
Agron decides to attempt to make peace with Crixus. He tells Crixus that he now understands what it feels like to love (regarding Nasir); however, Crixus says that he will never forget what Agron did for him in helping him escape from the arena, but that still does not change things between them. Agron gets angry and says that the mistake was his to try and give comfort to a Gaul. Crixus then punches Agron in the face. Before they can really get into a fight, it is broken up by Spartacus. Later, Agron, Spartacus, and the rebels are furious at the fact that someone stole the map of Neapolis and their last coins. The rebels accuse Gannicus of being a thief which leads him to attack Spartacus and the two battle each other out in an evenly matched fight. It is revealed that Chadara, after she has been killed by Mira, is the one who stole the map and Gannicus is vindicated, although still leaves.
Later, Agron, Spartacus, Caelius, and Donar pose as rich Romans interested in buying a new shipment of slaves, all of who are from the Germanic tribes of the north, with the plan to liberate the ship and add these warriors to their cause. The quest complicates itself when Agron speaks to his people in their native language, and a guard who shares their tongue overhears. The operation ends up being successful as they kill all the guards and Agron's kin swells to join him.
Agron, Spartacus, and the other rebels return to their camp with the German slaves, who are ready to drink with the rebels as brothers. Nasir greets Agron with a kiss, and they mingle with his people. Crixus voices his doubts about the new recruits as he wonders who they will follow since they are all Agron's people. Spartacus ignores this and says that the Germans are no strangers to battle and blood, but he has his doubts as well. Later, a skeptical Spartacus asks Agron if there were other areas where shipments of slaves could have been provided, to which Agron responds Damascus and Gaulia were available options, yet he chose the Germans because he does not favor the Gauls. Spartacus then talks to Agron about his concerns over their newly freed companions and how they are wild, crude, and borderline uncontrollable, especially Sedullus. Agron becomes sensitive to the criticism and vouches for his people. The next morning, Crixus makes it known to Spartacus that Agron and the Germans went hunting for games without them.Spartacus is angered by this as he, Crixus, and Caelius catch up with the Germans in the woods. Spartacus is not pleased, yet Agron merely states that they were up early, and it shouldn't matter since they caught plenty of food. Lugo adds that they have Roman drink as well, and it becomes aware to Spartacus that not only did they kill Romans, but they went on the road so close to their camp, and could have been caught. Sedullus jokes and says that no Roman could see this because they are all dead. Sedullus and the Germans then leave to prepare the feast. Agron apologizes to Spartacus, but Crixus claims that Agron is just a reckless boy. Agron rejects this claim and says it was because of him, boy or not, that they have food and more men. Crixus then says that Agron is nothing more than a pup who found himself wild dogs, Agron crosses this and says they might be dogs, but they're dogs who will never follow a Gaul. He then runs off to join his kin. Caelius then says to Spartacus that he questions Agron's sincerity, and Spartacus does not know what to say.
At the feast later that night, the newly arrived warriors are celebrating wildly, fighting each other for sport, and acting rather provocative with each other. Nasir mentions to Agron that his people lift spirits. Agron looks at Crixus, who is staring at his people with utter disgust, and he says to Nasir that not everyone is moved. They then return to watching the fun.
Sedullus spies on Naevia and sees her getting water alone without Crixus. He then begins to try and rape her. Agron sees this and rushes to Naevia's aid, trying to stop his companion. Sedullus picks up Agron, and throws him down on the steps, punching him over and over again. The Germans believe this to be nothing more than sport and cheer Sedullus on. Crixus is watching this as well in amusement until he sees Naevia's bloody face, and is in shock and angered by the sight. Crixus then realizes what is really going on and immediately charges at Sedullus, punching him off of Agron and then choking him. Lugo then tackles Crixus off of Sedullus and everyone at the feast begins to fight each other. Spartacus and Oenomaus come into the area, and Spartacus is outraged by all this fighting. He tussles with people before he sees Sedullus waving a sword over Agron, ready to kill him. He clashes his sword with Sedullus and then slices off Sedullus' face, saving Agron's life and ending the barbaric scuffle between everyone. He orders the rebels to stop fighting each other and says if they don't want to heed his orders or be among one another as trusted brothers, then they can leave. Agron declares that he follows Spartacus and he will not call any of the Germans his kin if they do not as well. Lugo approaches Spartacus and says that for killing Sedullus he is a great warrior and he will follow. He thumps his sword and shield. Agron and the rest of the Germans follow by thumping their chests, their way of pledging their loyalty to Spartacus.
Afterward, Gannicus returns harboring Ilithyia whom he captured; Spartacus has not killed her yet because she is pregnant with his unborn child. Agron and Nasir are supposed to keep guard of her, but their passion takes over them. Their kissing heats up and Nasir begins fondling Agron. Before things get too heated, Mira interrupts them and relieves them of their duty, tells them to go to their bed, and she will take watch over Ilithyia. As they leave, Agron expresses his gratitude.
Spartacus decides to offer Ilithyia up as bait, unharmed to Glaber in exchange for weapons. Spartacus says he will honor the deal, and says he is only allowed three men to accompany him, as were the terms. Agron volunteers first, and Crixus follows and says he'll do so despite Agron's company, noting the tension between them still has not faded. Oenomaus volunteers and though Spartacus says that he is honored and warms his heart, Oenomaus is still healing and he cannot let him go. Gannicus offers to replace Oenomaus in his stead, as a latest effort to get back into his good graces. At the "meeting" place, Spartacus shows Glaber proof that Ilithyia is still alive, but Glaber is unmoved. He then proceeds to say that he desires Spartacus' death more than saving Ilithyia and what he still thinks his unborn child. As Agron opens the wagon, Ashur and his mercenaries appear and ambush them. The battle rages on between the rebels and their enemies as Agron is bested by Nileus in a short skirmish, but not killed. Luckily, Mira and Lucius Caelius show up in time to lend help with bow and arrow. Glaber is wounded, but not severely, and reinforcements arrive just in time to save him. The rebels know that they must fall back, so Lucius Caelius volunteers to hold Glaber's mercenaries back long enough to ensure the rebels, including Agron, escape, though it costs him his life.
Agron would continue to act alongside Spartacus throughout the rest of their time at the sanctuary until the forces of Glaber arise in force to defeat the rebels. Agron takes up defense alongside Crixus and Donar and fights off many Roman soldiers. Agron, Crixus, and Spartacus then halt the approaching forces with fire to give themselves enough time for the rebels to escape to Mt. Vesuvius.
Agron is selected alongside Spartacus, Crixus, and Gannicus to climb down the side of the mountain in order to flank Glabers forces. The four manage to do so and the rebels from atop the mountain, led by Oenomaus, storm down and the final battle begins. Agron takes the lives of several Romans in the battle. Eventually, the rebels are victorious and Spartacus takes the life of Glaber. With this, the rebels have shown their worth and Agron stays at Spartacus' side in the future to make Rome crumble.
War of the Damned
Agron continues to serve the rebellion as one of Spartacus' most loyal warriors and remains close with his lover, Nasir. He now possesses a new set of armor and uses a shield and sword in battle. Agron takes part in recruitment alongside Nasir and Donar so while Nasir tests the recruits in combat, he and Donar analyze the potential and determination of the recruits.
Following the victorious battle against Cossinius and Furius, Agron returns to the encampment and lies with Nasir. Soon after, the Rebels receive word that a Roman unit is nearby their encampment. After the Rebels ambush the unit, they learn that Marcus Crassus assembles a force of 10,000 men and that Cossinius and Furius have fled to a nearby villa. Spartacus hatches a plan to invade the villa at night, while Agron leads the main force to lure out most of Cossinius' remaining forces. Agron's unit easily wipes out the small remaining forces of Cossinius' men, while Spartacus kills Cossinius and Furius themselves.
Agron was present the day before the rebels invaded Sinuessa to discuss with Attius and organize the invasion. He left and later came back with all the rebels to take the city.
During a celebration with Cilician pirates in Sinuessa, Agron gets into a fight with one of them, Castus, after he saw the man grabbing and trying to seduce Nasir. Spartacus puts an end to the fight and the celebration is over.
Agron and Nasir have an argument about the situation with the pirate. Agron is extremely angry and claims he'd kill anyone who'd try to separate them. He is eventually calmed down by Nasir's words of love and the couple kiss and make love.
Later, Agron goes with Spartacus, Crixus, Gannicus, and other rebels outside the city to meet with the pirates to pay them to get food. Agron gets immediately furious when Castus tries to speak and threatens him with his sword. The arrangement between the pirates and the rebels seems compromised until suddenly, they all get attacked by Tiberius, Sabinus, and their army. This forces the rebels and pirates to fight together against their common foe and claim victory.
When he comes back, Agron reassures a worried Nasir that he wouldn't have left him.
Agron becomes the "shadow" of Spartacus, following him in the city to protect him as he sees how many of the rebels are becoming uneasy and unpredictable, especially in their growing distaste for Spartacus' morality.While out in the city, he runs into Castus from time and time. This displeases him and he openely expresses it, much to the pirate's amusement.
When many rebels decide to kill the Romans they were supposed to let live, Nasir arrives with Castus to warn Spartacus. Agron is jealous to see them together and makes a sharp remark to Nasir about it. He then aids Spartacus in putting an end to the frenzy and shows to himself to be part of a small minority that are against these acts.
Agron and Donar are put in charge of guarding the surviving Romans with a few other rebels. Nasir attempts to speak with Agron, but Agron is still upset that Nasir had been with Castus. Nasir explains how he found the pirate in the streets when it all began by coincidence. Agron is left speechless when Nasir states he would have believed him if it was Agron who was in the same position.
When Crixus and Naevia burst into the villa, Agron immediately tells them they will not lay a hand on the Romans but Naevia tells him that they don't care for his "Roman pets". Crixus demands to know why Spartacus left the city. Agron asks where he heard this information but Crixus doesn't say, only wanting his question to be answered.
Agron's loyalty remains with Spartacus and he does not answer, telling Crixus he'll find out when Spartacus returns. After Crixus calls Spartacus' actions cowardly, Agron is quick to point out Crixus is no better as he killed the Romans absent command. When Crixus justifies his actions by saying the prisoners are the enemy, no different from the ones they suffered beneath as slaves. Before he mentions the ones that killed his brother Duro and how the visceral hatred and fire that Agron once possessed it gone, but Agron responds that it is that they are now different men.
When the Cilician Pirates betray Spartacus and Lysiscus is revealed to be Julius Caesar, the rebels are put on the defensive. Agron, Donar, and Saxa guard the front gate as Caesar and his soldiers approach. They defeat them and are about to kill Caesar when Crassus and his army break through the gate. The trio then escapes into the city and regroup with Spartacus. Spartacus then gives the order to abandon the city to which Agron then leaves to find Nasir.
He finds Nasir fighting alongside Castus and Lugo. He attacks Castus believing him a traitor, but both Nasir and Castus deny it. Agron instead takes Castus captive and brings him to Spartacus where they then take leave of the city and into the cold snowy mountains.
Agron is selected by Spartacus amongst the most skilled in order to strike the tent of Crassus in the night. They kill many Romans, however, instead of Crassus they find a crucified Donar who serves as a warning to the rebels. It turns out to be a trap, but the rebel group manages to escape the ambush and back to their own camp.
Agron is eventually convinced by Nasir to allow Castus into their ranks. This turns out to be a wise choice as, during the assault on Crassus' wall, Castus saves Agron from being struck from behind. Agron acknowledges this with a nod and goes off to kill more Romans. Following the battle, the rebels ambush Crassus and his men by throwing spears and arrows at them until the Romans flee. Agron tells Spartacus that Crassus will soon return with heavy artillery, but Spartacus says that Crassus will use them to destroy the wall which will place a great distance between them. After that, the rebels escape the mountains and venture into the forest.
The rebels are on the move, but due to the tension between Crixus and Spartacus, Agron is forced to pick a side. Crixus and Spartacus decide to go their separate ways, Crixus moving towards Rome and Spartacus heading over the Alps. After the rebels have taken over a village and have celebrated, Agron and Nasir talk in private. Although he and Crixus have never seen eye to eye, Agron decides to go with Crixus as blood and battle are all he knows and says there is no life for him in the Alps. Agron asks Nasir to go with Spartacus and although Nasir is greatly reluctant, he agrees after Agron tells him to aid the inexperienced. Agron then converses with Spartacus upon his choice and the two both express each other as brothers. The next morning, Crixus takes the rebels who joined him and Naevia towards Rome, conquering as they move north.
The rebels defeat a small army and believe they will successfully conquer Rome, until they hear horns alerting the rebels of the arrival of Crassus, Tiberius, and Julius Caesar. Crixus, fueled by the thirst for blood, rashly takes on the outnumbering army. The rebels realize they don't stand a chance unless they go to higher grounds. Agron is about to engage battle with Caesar who had just killed Brictius, but he is slashed from behind by Tiberius and with disbelief falls to his knees and then collapses. His wound, however, proves less serious than it first appears and Agron is among the few hundred rebels found alive on the battlefield.
Agron becomes a prisoner of war, tied in chains. He is visited by Crassus and Caesar who identifies him to Crassus as one of Spartacus' most trusted men. After refusing to give information to Crassus on Spartacus, he has Agron crucified, as a warning to any of his prisoners who refuse to give him an answer. Caesar takes part in the act as Agron swears vengeance on him before he is nailed to the cross.
Although Kore kills Tiberius, she offers herself in Tiberius' place. Crassus honors his word and releases five hundred prisoners as promised, including Agron. Spartacus helps Agron back to the rebel camp and Nasir takes him off his hands. Severely weakened from being crucified, his hands being pierced, and having many gashes and bruises from torture, Nasir takes care of him. Nasir is relieved to see Agron again as the latter states he was a fool to leave him. At Crixus' funeral pyre, the rebels use this to remember all that have fallen for them to be free. Agron shouts the name of his brother: Duro.When the time of the final battle with the Romans approaches, Agron longs to take to the battlefield once more at Spartacus' side. However, when Spartacus asks him to hold a sword, he cannot grip it due to the wounds he sustained in his hands when being crucified. Spartacus tells him that he will instead travel with the non-combatant rebels over the mountains. Later on, Nasir presents him a specially made shield with a sword attached, so that Agron will not have to grip it, but wear it as a shield instead. Armed with this new weapon, he defies Spartacus' previous order and takes to the battlefield to fight against the full might of Rome.
When the final battle commences, Agron takes up a position in the front and kills many Romans, fighting side by side with Nasir and Castus. When Castus is killed by a Roman horseman, he and Nasir go to his dying body. Castus then remarks that he wishes he could have been Agron for just one day. Inflamed by the death of their comrade, Agron and Nasir jump back into the fighting.Later on, when Spartacus is about to deliver the killing blow to Crassus, he is impaled by 3 Roman spears from behind. This gives Crassus the opportunity to finally kill the rebel leader, but he is stopped when Agron, Nasir, Lydon, and another arrive, forcing Crassus off the top of the hill. They manage to slay the Romans that mortally wounded Spartacus and take the injured Spartacus to the mountains to escape the lost battle just before Crassus returns with Julius Caesar and Roman reinforcements. When Spartacus awakens, he is surrounded by Agron, Nasir, Sibyl and Laeta, accompanied by a few other rebels. Spartacus speaks his final words and tells Agron not to cry as there is no greater way to leave the world than as a free man. After he speaks his final words he succumbs to his wounds and dies, much to the anguish of the surrounding rebels. Just as this happens, the skies darken and rain falls, reminiscent of the events that occurred during Spartacus' defeat of Theokoles.
The rebels then bury Spartacus under a pile of rocks, topped with Agrons shield/sword weapon. As they turn to leave, Agron gives one last heartfelt look at the makeshift grave, then turns with Nasir and the few Rebels and walks away into the hills, finally free of the grip of Rome as a free man.
While Agron in the show is entirely fictional, his place as a leader of the rebellion takes that of Castus, the fifth known leader of the rebels following Spartacus, Crixus, Oenomaus, and Gannicus. While Agron decides to break away from Spartacus with Crixus in Separate Paths, Castus historically broke away with Gannicus. Unlike Agron who survives the rebellion in the show, Castus died with Gannicus and their army in Lucania in 71 BC.

- His shield has a crab design on it, he is briefly seen using it when he fights in the arena in the episode 'Old Wounds'.
- Crixus has an octopus design on his and Varro's has an eel, hence all three of them have sea creatures on their shields.
