Romulus-061116
 

PersonalityEdit

Romulus is a rigid, tough, and above all, disciplined man. A keen thinker with a reasonable, respectful manner, Romulus has an aura of maturity and confidence, and can be charming when he wants to be. Open to negotiation, Romulus is direct and upfront, not one for insults and games, and shows respect and decency to any guests beneath his roof, abhoring the idea of going back on his word. Romulus additionally has a low opinion of Golds in the Core of the Society , finding them to be spoiled, decadent, and savage. He views himself and others in the Rim to be more like the Iron Gold who conquered Earth and founded the Society, andviews violence as an unplesant tool, that must not be used lightly. 

His discipline extends to his family life, expecting his children to earn their way to comfort and wealth, rather than simply be granted them. However, he seems to have strong affection for his children, wishing to avenge his older daughter and seeming aggrieved at the news of her death. 

He acknowledges the suffering of the lowColors, but insists that that is the way it must be for the Rim to survive. He is not vindictive or outwardly cruel to them.

Appearance Edit

He is the same height as Darrow but thinner, with a twice broken nose and a larger right eye. His left eye is missing, replaced by a blue and black marble orb, and his face and skin is smooth and flawless disregarding the scars form battle. He has long, dark gold hair that is kept back in a ponytail. Darrow notes that Romulus appears to be both serene and violent. 

In the StoryEdit

Morning StarEdit

Romulus lost his father and his older daughter to the Society during Darrow's Triumph, and is in due time raised to the status of 'Sovereign' of the independent Rim by his constituents (the Moon Lords). Darrow and Mustang seek his help when they decide to defeat the Sword Armada of the Society. Though Darrow is initially wary, Mustang says that Romulus would never harm a guest beneath his roof, a vow he upholds. Romulus invites both Darrow and Roque au Fabii to win over his loyalty and support, with the ArchGovernor of Titan in attendance as well. Although Roque presents a strong case, including revenge for his father and daughter, Romulus is swayed by Darrow's promises of both vengeance and independence and his trick involving the storage of nuclear weapons, which he implies will be used against the Moon Lords. Romulus casts Roque out, swearing a blood feud against him. 

Romulus and the Moon Lords aid Darrow in breaking the Sword Armada and winning their independence, though Darrow, under the guise of Roque's vessel, destroys the enormous dockyards of Ganymede, thus preventing Romulus from turning against Darrow in his lifetime.
