''Diomedes of Sebastia (known to his companions as D. Sebastian) shifted in his saddle, looked past the helmeted Strategos and his mighty glaive, and scanned the horizon beyond. The enemy's cavalry was rallying, soon they would charge. That meant only one thing...''

+

''The Byzantine Strategos turned and smiled a genuinely gleeful grin at his Tagama Army. With that grin, all, including D.Sebastian, understood that they would soon meet the enemy in a counter-charge. D.Sebastian's officer leaned over quietly and smiling, issued a single order: "Don't get dead".''

''He joined the rest of the grinning bucellarii with his own smile. "Don't get dead" he mused, "words to live by."''

''Diomedes is the sixth son from an arranged marriage between Thracian and Anatolian merchant families, who were then sent to set up a trading post in the City of Sebastia. As there were plenty of sons to run the local business, D.Sebastian was raised for another purpose that would help grow the families burgeoning Trade Empire.''

''At a young age, he found himself attending private schools and being tutored in the arts of courtesy. When the time came, D.Sebastian was sent to Constantinople to live with the family of his Uncle Cyrus. In Byzantium, D.Sebastian's days consisted of getting to know the city and understanding its body politic. When he was deemed ready, it was arranged for him to join the army and be stationed near the Palace. It was at this time that his role in the family business was made clear. Diomedes was to infiltrate the aristocratic circles and find favor with the bureaucrats and mid level dignitaries. His role was to rub elbows and make deals with any who could in any way add profit to the family and its many dealings.''

''Diomedes used his station well and often found himself in the company of people of worth and invited to parties in prominent areas of the City. Coached daily by his Uncle, he was making the right connections and finding his feet as a lobbyist. Friends in high places also arranged for him to perform the duties as a guard to the Court. But like all business dealings there are rivalries, and Diomedes actions and growing popularity was not going unnoticed. One such rivalry to the family had sway with certain Potentates in the City, as D.Sebastian discovered when his name appeared on orders to report as a part of a replacement company bound for Syria and to place itself under the Command of Belisarius. It was not a secret that Belasarius was moving to make war in the West.''
