War of the Damned[]

Publius is first seen waking up to find his father's study. He questions his father on why he is leaving. Marcus tells his son that it is his job as a Roman to fight Spartacus. Publius asks his father to take him, expressing that he is a Roman as well and wants to fight. His father tells him he is too young and sends him back to bed.
