EBC: Cicero -Application Sheet- by Jackie-GR EBC: Cicero -Application Sheet- by Jackie-GR

December 2014: A lot of updates happening these days!

Name: Cicero

Gender: Male

Species: African Serval (Leptailurus serval)

Cicero suffers from something similar to PTSD (Post traumatic stress disorder). The reason behind this is the fact that he was taken away from his mother too early, and the solitude and terrors of the coliseums. This has made him slightly unstable. Certain situations that make him feel the way he did in the coliseums can drive him into a frenzy. He is not himself in these moments, and can not be reasoned with until he snaps out of it. He goes into a state of mad rage and pure panic, and can attack the cat who triggered it.

Cicero's worst fear has always been to attack and harm someone unintentionally, and he therefore avoid situation he feels can trigger it. This is a part of him that will hopefully go away with the help of time.

"No, I'm fine.. I'm sorry I bothered you! I.. I'll get out of your way..."

Cicero is very insecure. He has never been proud of himself in any way. He failed in his day as a coliseum fighter and never had anyone to give him acknowledges or compliments. Cicero is a bit quiet, and most often speaks when spoken to.
---- {3 years of age} Cicero is still insecure and keeps to himself if no one approaches him. He doesn't have that many friends, but is happy about the conversations he has had with the other Empire cats. He feels a little bit better about himself now that he has matured.

"What do you need me to do? Yes, anything!"

Having very few fears, Cicero is very brave. He generally doesn’t fear either death or pain. He got used to the thought of death and learned to ignore the pain in his days as a coliseum fighter. He is not a daredevil of showoff, and doesn’t do dangerous things unless he feels like he has to. Being as fearless as he is, is of great use in battles. He will go on as long as his legs can carry him.

:new: { P O L I T E }
"It's nice to meet you."

Cicero is very polite, and even though he is not sure about how to act sometimes or what to say in certain situations, he always tries to be and sound as friendly as possible. He does not want a cat to be uncomfortable around him, so he always tries to be as polite as he can.

{G E N T L E }
"It's going to be alright, I promise. I'm always here if you need me."

Apart from his rare aggressive outbursts, Cicero is very gentle. He has much love inside of him. Cicero is a people pleaser, and will do his very best to keep the cats around him happy. Due to his lack of social skills, Cicero can sometimes be a bit naïve. He trusts too easily, making it easier for people to use him. He puts others’ needs in front of his own. All he wants is acceptance. 

 --- {3 years of age} Cicero still hasn't quite found his place in the Fire Empire, even though he has been there for quite awhile now. He loves to help and to feel wanted by the other cats. His lonely past still has a great impact on him and he still feels new to things like friendship and acquaintances. Even though he still would go through fire and ice for his empire and the cats in it, a small part of Cicero is slowly getting more and more used to the thought of more or less live in solitude. This is simply because his social life hasn't improved much and he is too shy to do something himself. He is still very gentle and caring though, and if given the chance, he would be the most loyal, kind and gentle friend, mate or even father.

Biography & History


Cicero has been a part of the Fire Empire for nearly two years now. He tries his best to be a good gladiator and and is still adjusting to the Empire life and the tasks within it. Cicero still walks around with a fear of his aggression, even though he hasn't had a incident in a while. He'd hate himself if he hurt someone unintentionally and does his best to avoid getting in a situation that might trigger it.

After receiving training, Cicero has found out that his greatest strength in battles is speed. He is a very fast runner and will use that the best he can. His strength isn't the best, so he'll avoid the fight for as long as he can during a battle. Cicero is as good as completely fearless, which is useful for others around him. The consequences of what may happen if he tries something dangerous doesn't scare him. Even if he doesn't stand a chance, he'll try whatever he can, and hopefully it did something good.


Cicero was born in Massilia on October 10th 50 BC. Unlike many of his fellow Empire cats, Cicero’s owners were not wealthy. He was stolen from a breeder and taken away from his mother at very young age. He never received proper training and he never got an armor. But, he was, without preparations, thrown into the coliseum and fought cats that where both bigger and better than him. His battles were never about winning, losing or tactics: It was about survival. The young serval was a poor fighter, and was both knocked out and badly wounded after the battles. His owners had the them stopped before he was killed.

After months with battles like these, Cicero was tired, weak and mentally exhausted. In May 29 BC, at 7 months of age, he decided to escape. He knew he wasn’t going to survive much longer if he stayed. When one of his owners was coming to get him, Cicero bit his hand and ran out an open door as fast he as he could. Terrified of getting caught, he ran until his legs failed him.

After being on his own, not knowing where he was, he found by some cats from Fire Empire. He was in a poor condition. He joined the Empires in June. After being let into the Empire, Cicero eventually got an armor from the blacksmith. He received training as an apprentice for a couple of months before he was promoted gladiator.

Training, Mentors and Apprentices

Past Mentor(s): None

Current Apprentice: Emil

Past Apprentices: Niam  (Training was never completed)

Other facts

- Cicero dreams about meeting his mother again. He loves her so much and he believes she is alive somewhere. It kills him to know that she might still be alone in Massilia.

:new: - Cicero is more comfortable around bigger cats rather than those who are smaller than him. The reason for this is that larger cats have a bigger chance of winning against him and knock him out, should he ever attack them as a result of his disorder.
