Lanista of Kansk
A ludis (gladiatorial house), owned by Brunitis (the lanista). The trainer is Soren, the doctori.
Recruits are tormented/hazed until they earn their brand on the sand. Examples: pissed on, laughingly and publicly sodomized, whipped, deprived of sleep, excessively worked, and generally made fun of. Many don’t survive it.
Brunitis purchased Cassius and Raphael from Inspector Moore.
