I am Arthur Castus, commander of the Sarmatian knights and by Bishop Germanius of Rome. Open the gate.
Our orders are to evacuate you immediately.
Which is Alecto?
Theyíre invading from the north.
They have. Us. We leave as soon as youíre packed.
If I fail to bring you and your son back, my men can never leave this land. So youíre coming with me if I have to tie you to my horse and drag you all the way to Hadrianís Wall myself. My lord. Lady, my knights are hungry.
What is this punishment for? Answer me!
I tell you now. Marius is not of God. And you - all of you - were free from your first breath.
Now hear me. A vast and terrible army is coming this way. They will show no mercy, spare no one. Those of you who are able should begin to gather your things and move south, towards Hadrianís Wall. Those unable shall come with us. (to GANIS) You. Serve me now. Gather these people.
And the only way out is to the south?
They're coming with us.
See if thereís still any alive.
Water! Give me some water!
Iím a Roman officer. Youíre safe now. Youíre safe...
What is this madness?
You mean they refused to be your serfs!
Perhaps I should kill you now and seal my fate.
Then I shall grant His wish. Wall them back up.
Weíre not leaving them
Then save your anger for them.
Some of your fingers are out of place. I have to push them back. If I donít do this, thereís a chance you may never use them again.
Really? And what did you hear?
Listen, Lady, do not pretend that you know anything about me or my men.
As many as tried to kill me. It's a natural state of any man to want to live.
Weíll sleep here. Take shelter in those trees. Tristan.
