Julius Caesar. Alix Crassus, who is a convert from the
Gaulian provinces, travels the vast empire on various
missions - mostly in an advisary capacity - with his
Egyptian friend Enak. Here they overthrow unrightful
dictators and unjust Roman generals, and they help local
tribes and maltreated slaves. Their missions sometimes
even take them outside the boundaries of the empire to
such places as India and China.
