Cossinius is a praetor of the Roman Republic. He replaces Glaber, Varinius and Scrofa in charge of stopping Spartacus and his rebel army. Furius is his military tribune. Cossinius has short black hair and a light hairstyle. He is muscular and taller than most men under his command.
Like most Romans, he believes himself better than others simply because he is Roman. He, like others before him, sees Spartacus as nothing more than a simple slave. He also has great respect for his position in the Senate.
Historically, he and Furius were sent to crush Spartacus under Publius Varinius. The expedition was split up, Cossinius and Fury were killed in a village and Variinus was captured.
