Overview

Romulus Augustus is an Archvillain for the Cimeroran Traitors.

He appears during the Imperious Task Force for both heroes and villains.

Description

Once the right hand man to Imperious, Romulus turned traitor and overthrew Imperious. Now, Romulus sides with the Nictus and other more questionable forces to secure his tyrannical rule over Cimerora.

Normal Powers

In his normal form, Romulus will use the following powers:

EnergyAura KineticShield.png Energized Shield Toggle: Self +DEF(Smashing, Lethal, Energy), Res(DeBuff DEF)
Kinetic Shield creates a harmonic Energy Aura that can deflect physical attacks. Your Defense to Smashing and Lethal attacks is increased as weapons and powers like bullets, blades and punches tend to deflect off the shield. Kinetic Shield also grants you good resistance to Defense Debuffs. The Energy based nature of Kinetic Shield also offers some minimal Defense to Energy attacks. Recharge: Fast

Sword Hack.png Hack Melee, High Dam(Lethal), Foe -DEF
You Hack your opponent for a high amount of damage. This attack can reduce a target's Defense, making him easier to hit. Damage: High, Recharge: Moderate

You throw a pilum at a foe, dealing heavy damage. Damage: High, Recharge: Moderate

EnergyAura PowerShield.png Phalanx Fighting Auto: Self +Res (Smashing,Lethal)
Your body resonates a mild Dampening Field that absorbs kinetic energy from physical weapons. This auto power permanently reduces all incoming Smashing and Lethal damage. This power is always on and costs no Endurance.

By bouncing a carefully pitched sound wave off an ally's ear drum, you can free him from any Disorient, Hold, Sleep, Confusion, Fear, or Immobilize effects, and leave him resistant to such effects for a good while. Protection will improve with multiple applications and as you advance in level. Clarity also provides your ally enhanced perception. Recharge: Fast

Sword Slash.png Slash Melee, Moderate Dam(Lethal), Foe -DEF
You perform a quick Slash that can reduce a target's Defense, making him easier to hit. This attack causes moderate damage, but has a quick recharge time. Damage: Moderate, Recharge: Fast
