Pleuratos is a Rebel under the command of Spartacus


Pleuratos is a young man with an average build and short black hair. He wears makeshift armor and wields a single sword although he is also seen with a spear. 


Pleuatos is a young man filled with confidence in both his ability and faith in Spartacus. He appears to have leadership qualities noted amongst the Rebels and trusted in doing tasks outside the Rebel's base of operations. He also appears to have knowledge about Roman military and manners (or he was taught by Spartacus) because he could easily fool a keen mind such as Crassus.

War of the Damned[]

Pleuratos is sent to Marcus Licinius Crassus under the guise of being an envoy from Pompey. He is successful in deceiving the Imperator (albeit recognized by Julius Caesar) and manages to broke a deal to meet in a neutral zone.

When Tiberius and twenty of his men arrive at the meeting place. Pleuratos, still under the guise of a soldier of Pompey, greets them. He then joins the other rebels in ambushing the Roman soldiers and capturing them.

Pleuratos delivers the news

During the gladiator games held in Crixus' memory, Pleuratos is the first to bring the news of the arrival of Caesar and the offe

"I am Spartacus!"

r that he brings.  He first tells Gannicus and then Spartacus of Crassus' proposed exchange of 500 captured rebels for the return of his son Tiberius. He is later seen helping wounded rebels as they return to the camp after being exchanged.

Pleuratos upon horseback in the final battle

As a means to create fear and confusion, Spartacus and his rebels move in different groups with many of the rebels pretending to be Spartacus. Pleuratos is one of the rebels selected to lead one such attack and yells "I am Spartacus" while holding the severed head of a Roman.

When the final battle commences, Pleuratos takes position next to Saxa as Gannicus' co-commanders as they advance on horseback and assault Crassus' forces from the rear. After the Rebels manage to take over the catapults and ballistae, Pleuratos is given command to defend the left flank. Pleuratos fights well and slays many Romans, but ultimately falls with Correus and most of his other comrades on the battlefield.
