A gladium is a charr who has lost their warband. It is the lowest rank in charr society as the charr has lost what they consider to be more important than their family. Many of the charr who become gladiums end up outside of the chain of command – it is up to them what they do after that. Some, like Rox, might seek to join another warband, and will be given a test to prove themselves; others, like General Almorra Soulkeeper and Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw, find their place outside of the charr society. It is acceptable for a group of gladiums to form a new warband on their own. Soldiers who have just lost their warbands must report to their former tribune in order to register themselves as gladiums.

Known gladiums[edit]


  • "Gladius" means "sword" in Latin. "Gladiator" (Roman arena fighter) is derived from this. Gladium is the accusative singular of gladius.
