The Height of Rome
Rajena always has her spatha (short sword) with her at all time.
She will joke about it and say it a carry over from her trooper days.
Keep her past as a trooper then to officer rank a close secret.
Rajena Attius was Roman general and senator, eventually becoming governor of Britain. Rajena was sent to Britain as governor, a position that she held to date. She was dispatch to Britain with troops from Germany was probably meant to put down a revolt there, or at least to reinforce the remnants of the troops who had done so. The revolt had been led by the Brigantes tribe and had resulted in the abandonment of the Antonine Wall and a possible slaughter at the fort at Newstead.
Rajena stripped the Brigantes of much of their territory, possibly in order to provide land to build a new civitas, or to be donated to the emperor. She is one of the finest governor Britai has ever had.
