"Rome" is the saga of two ordinary Roman soldiers and their families. An intimate drama of love and betrayal, masters and slaves, and husbands and wives, it chronicles epic times that saw the fall of a republic and the creation of an empire.
Titus Pullo's mother was a slave who died when he was young, and he never knew his father, though he assumes his father was also a slave. The legion is the only family Pullo has really known; his friend Lucius Vorenus, with his strict discipline and uncompromising moral code, comes to represent something like an older brother to him, if not quite a father. Later on down the line, their roles are reversed when Vorenus becomes listless with grief then irrational with anger, and Pullo must take on the more responsible role in order to care for and protect his closest friend.
He represents on one side the darker forces of the plebeian and barbarian masses that are helping to tear the Republic apart, but also the life spirit and general goodness that is helping to forge its future. Pullo's affable manner, even when confronting adversaries, remains a constant source of levity.
In his first scene Titus Pullo shows how impulsive he is! He is shown fighting the Gauls and ignoring the Roman army's regime. When Vorenus blows the whistle to get back in formation. Pullo continues which led to his first of many disagreements with Lucius Vorenus.
When he finds Eirene being dragged along by the treasury thief's. He instantly develops feelings for her, unties her and takes her with him, he always keeps her close by as he claims she calms him.
His sheer size and strength. Titus Pullo is a man who no one wants to mess with!
His love and loyalty to his friends. Pullo never lets anyone down.
A great soldier.
His temper. When Pullo is angry he can lash out without thinking about the consequences, and how his actions will affect others.
Very irrational at times. Doesn't always think things through.
He drinks to much sometimes...
