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

(Blade scrapes)

VATRENUS:
Open the gate.

AMBROSINUS:
And this

is also Caesar's will?

VATRENUS:
You've been well rewarded.

Go back where you came from.

My crime is putting new

ideas into a young head,

Teaching a lad to think for himself.

This lad is our emperor.

Which do you serve:

Caesar or your own ideas?

"A wise man never asks

what another man serves...

...for only his actions

will speak the true answer. "

You've read your Seneca.

I find poets as

dangerous as philosophers.

And you...

Where did you get this?

AMBROSINUS:
A long time ago...

In another land.

(Screams)

...from a man who loved only power.

So you're an adventurer, as well.

If I see you again in Rome,

it'll be on the point of my sword.

Take care in the mist, Commander.

It may hide what the gods

themselves dare not look upon.

NESTOR:
but who will guard

the guardians themselves?

Nestor?

Leave us.

A senator.

Well, these sit better

on me than armor ever did.

How is it with you, Aurelius?

Oh, a little older... no wiser.

After all these years?

Did you ever marry, have children?

No.

So what do you make of Rome?

Different.

Uneasy.

If you're to guard our new

Caesar, keep your wits about you.

And come see me. Friends are

a rare commodity these days.

I will.

GUARD:
The Goths! They've betrayed us!

(Shouting, swords clashing)

(Catapult rumbling)

GUARD:
You! To the wall!

Commander!

Prepare to fire!

Aurelius!

Down!

Defend the Emperor!

Get back, behind! Go! Go!

Form wall!

MAN:
Over this way!

Get back, boy!

Yah!

(Yells)

Ugh!

Father!

Odoacer wants the boy alive!

I'll do my best.

(Squelches)

Save yourself.

Yah.

(Horse whinnies)

Aah!

(Hooves pounding)

(Flies buzzing, fires crackling)

King, the emissary from Constantinople.

ODOACER:
Welcome, Excellency.
