The Last Legion

Synopsis: Circa 460 A.D. Mira was born in a warrior-family in Kerala, India, was well versed in martial arts and self-defense, so much so that she was recruited by the Spanish royalty and re-located to Constantinople. From there she was instructed to assist Roman Commander Aurelius to plan the escape of 12-year old Romulus Augustus Caesar from a prison in Capri after his parents had been killed by the leader of the Alliance in turmoil-stricken Rome that has seen the deaths of five emperors in five years. Mira, Aurelius, and a Priest, Ambrosinius, along with a handful of loyal soldiers were successful in the escape plan and deliver Romulus to Roman Senator Nestor. What the crew do not realize is that their task is not over yet, for Nestor is all set to betray Romulus, leaving them with no alternative but to flee to Britannia, where they will be forced to confront a seemingly invincible Vortygn, whose main aim is to obtain a powerful sword that was meant for defense and defeat, and also ensure the

Romulus, where have you been?

We've been looking everywhere.

Ambrosinus, you took him

outside without a guard?!

- You know the

danger. - No, I-

It's a fine morning. We went

for a walk. No harm done.

You know what tomorrow holds for him?

For all of us.

I know perfectly well, Orestes.

I have as much care for

your son as you have.

What did you say?

You go too far, schoolmaster.

Leave us.

Orestes, sometimes I think

you forget he is just a boy.

He has your blood in his

veins, bloodline of the Caesars.

He was never just a boy.

Mother, in five years there

have been five emperors...

And they were all murdered.

What will happen to me?

You will be guarded by the best.

You will live long and rule wisely.


My son...

This day you join the immortals.

Caesar! Caesar! Caesar!


Mother, am I now the most

powerful man in the world?

You are.

Then why can't I stay out

on the day I am crowned?

What am I to be, a god or a boy?

You are Caesar, and my

Caesar must be protected.

But who would harm me?

The one you saw, Odoacer the Goth.

He is our ally.

And you, teacher of words and numbers,

What is the business

of the state to you?

My only concern is the

welfare of your son.

You make concern yourself no longer.

He is Caesar now.

He's still a boy.

Perhaps he still needs me.

Well, your task is over.

Leave us. Don't come back.


Hail, Caesar.

This is Aurelius, of the Nova Invicta.

He will command your personal guard.

May I see your sword, Commander?

He must do everything

to protect me from harm,

- Must he not, Father?

- Indeed, he must.

To the last breath.

And do I have your word on that?

You have his word.

He is sworn to serve you.

Is it so, Commander?

Thank you.

I only wanted to look at it.
