:: Background ::
Silvio was born in moors a short distance away from Rome in his mother and fathers inn, which sat in the center of a small hamlet town, accepting in travelers departing and entering in to the great capital. They were relatively well-off, his parents taking in a good income from what they did. As he matured, Silvio's patriotism became increasingly important to himself. He felt he lived in one of the greatest countries in the world, and it was this pride that brought him to enlist as a soldier of the Empire in 1316.
He served for many years, training as a skilled swordsman, and training to become a true leader. By the age of 26, he led large groups of soldiers for the Emperor, and was a name known among the Roman military quite well. In 1327, when Bartolomeo took over his station from his father, Silvio followed him, and continued in his possition, however, this only lasted for two years.
In 1329, Silvio approached the emperor directly and told him of his harsh mistreatment of the poor. The Emperor shunned him, revoking his status as a member of the Emperor, throwing him out on to the streets. Silvio returned to the Inn that he spent his childhood in, where he tried to gather people to fight Mariani, though his attempts did not reach any further than assault on guards, and the imprisonment of his followers.
He continued his endevours until 1330, when the hamlet he and his parents resided in was ransacked by a group of drunk soldiers, who slew his mother and father. Silvio cut the soldiers down and threw away their bodies. After repairing the minor damages to the inn and burying his parents, he swore revenge on Mariani and his loose control over his empire, contacting old friends or great warriors to see if they would help him.
