Role # 1 Caius Martius
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Coriolanus. A Roman general, he is given the name 'Coriolanus' after he leads the Roman armies to victory against the Volscian city of Corioles. Brave, fearsome in battle, and extremely honourable, he is also overly proud, immature, inflexible, and stubbornly aristocratic. These faults, combined with a fierce contempt for the lower classes of Rome, lead to his exile from his native city.
