Bearing the symbol of the fasces,
the Romulus was introduced as an AI controlled
lictor. Lauded as a solution to lictor corruption
and resultedly an end to magistrates being assassinated
by their own bodyguards, Romulus models were
manufactred in droves.
Catastrophic accidents led to a return to wet-ware
plebian lictors, who often now find themselves
defending against assaults by decommissioned
Romuluses directed by competitive parties who
also hold imperium.
