Vitus is a former slave from The House of Batiatus.
Vitus is a young man with a toned-muscular build and short black hair. Initially lacking combat experience, he receives training from Peirastes and gains a great level of skill. His willingness to go on dangerous missions is evidence that he possesses a large amount of courage for such a novice warrior.
Vitus is one of three who have done well in their combat training under Pierastes. He is grante
d a sword following the success of his training and as a result becomes one of the rebel's fighters.
When it is found out the Gaius Claudius Glaber, a Praetor of the Republic, has been dispatched from Rome to put down the rebel group, One of the slaves is visibly frightened speaks up his concern, angering Agron, but later calmed down by Spartacus. He then expresses to Spartacus that he will kill many Romans.
Vitus joins in with the other rebels as they take a Roman villa. He appears to
"I will kill many Romans."
—Vitus to Spartacus
"Spartacus! Someone comes!"
—Vitus to Spartacus; his last words
Peirastes: "Vitus! Pyrrhus! Lysandros! Divide these among you according to skill."
Mira (to Chadara): "I need an accounting of food and supplies. Find Vitus and see it done."
- Vitus is greek, but his name from the Latin word ''vita" means life. Some consider Vitus as a romanization of the Germanic name Wido, which traditionally is attributed to the old high German widu (wood).
- Vitus' name was shouted during Crixus' Funeral by one of the rebels in order to honour him.
- As a normal house-slave, Vitus may have been Baiulus, or porter.
