Memorandum — The Heroes
The heroes of Spearpoint are the clandestine agents, special forces, and freelancers that tirelessly work for the betterment of the Roman Empire.
Within the Roman espionage establishment, certain organizations are mandated to offer a number of their most promising recruits to serve in a Vexilium Aquiliferorum. These organizations are not always willing participants in the multi-departmental process that staffs the Vexilium cells. However, part of the massive leeway given to a Tesserarius is to identify certain needs in their cell and to call on the appropriate Agency to provide an appropriate recruit. When a Tesserarius makes the official request to an Agency, the Agency has little recourse but to provide the appropriate manpower.
