Events of Criminal Case

Scorpius became a suspect after Jack and the player found his promotional ad on which the victim had called him a "stallion", leading Jack and the player to assume that he had an intimate relationship with Flavia. When asked if he had gone to the Circus, he told the team that he had not, and would not have been able to, visit Flavia. He then denied having an intimate relationship with her.

Scorpius was spoken to again about his fingerprints on a pair of handcuffs that had been used at the recent orgy hosted by the victim. He admitted that he had a sexual relationship with Flavia, but at the orgy, the handcuffs that she had used on him had put him in an uncomfortable position that caused his arm to break. His broken arm meant that he would be unable to race, so his slave masters would surely feed him to the lions as punishment. He then blamed Flavia for ruining his life.

Scorpius was found to be innocent after the team incarcerated Claudia Pulchra for Flavia's murder. Later, he asked for help from Zara and the player as he needed someone to assume his guise and replace him in the chariot race. Zara offered to take his place and, after finding the necessary equipment and getting Kai to improve the safety measures on her chariot, Zara took Scorpius' place in the race and won, saving Scorpius from punishment from his masters.


  • Outside the Criminal Case universe, Scorpius was a famous chariot racer in Roman times who lived at the end of the 1st century AD.
