Hefaistios, also called “the Gallant”, is a Scion of Clan Toreador, and a childe to Cletia. One of the “Greek Twins”, he joined with Servilius to drive out Cletia from Verulamium in the late 5th century. He has since served Servilius as a diplomat, an effort which has proven to be more difficult than he had hoped for, considering the many enemies of the Elder. He is also involved in a “war” of prestige against Vivia Valerius Vetus, a conflict which led to her leaving the south for Deva Victrix in AD 616. He recently ascended the office of Prince in Verulamium following the death of Servilius, but only time will tell how successful his reign will be.
