Cartacus is a fighter in The Pit.

Character Outline[]

A fighter in The Pits, Cartacus is fierce in both combat and personality, revealing a sadistic grin whenever excited.


Caratacus fought with Oenomaus in The Pit, sometime after his fight with Liberius and many other fighters. For their weapons, Caratacus had drawn "Malleus" (a spiked wooden hammer) while Oenomaus had drawn "Securis" (an axe). Worn out and injured from all his previous matches, Oenomaus is soon disarmed and is about to be beaten to death by Caratacus when Ashur intervenes from outside the 'ring', killing Caratacus with a thrown dagger (along with the pit boss), before abducting Oenomanus to bring him before his new dominus, Gaius Claudius Glaber.


  • Raicho Vasilev also plays Gnaeus and Ixion, as well as being the stunt double for Liam McIntyre in Vengeance and War of The Damned
  • Historically, Caratacus was the name of a British chieftain of the Catuvellauni tribe during the First century AD. He was known for being the leader of the resistance during the Roman conquest of Britain.
  • The character's name may be indicative of Belgae origins. The Belgae were a Celtic-derived ethnic-group who were known to inhabit the Netherlands, Belgium, western Germany and southern Britain during the First Century BCE.
