A type of Roman gladiator
who forsaked dexterity
for sheer brute force
, by wearing full metal body-armour
, including a helmet without eye-holes. These gladiators usually charged blindly at each other on horseback.
Battles between two of these gladiators were generally finished either extremely quickly, with one incapacitating the other in the first charge, or were long, drawn-out ordeal
s where both men, riding blind in heavy armour, attempted to find their way to each other with the aid of the crowd's shouted directions.
