Name: Furia Maxima (addressed as Maxima in the Roman convention)

Pronouns: She/Her

Time Period: Early 1st century CE

Location: Rome

Occupation: Courtesan (meretrix) 


History:

I was born in Germania in the early part of the 1st century. I was taken to Rome as a young woman. With my aptitude for learning and languages I quickly adapted to the culture. I made a life in Rome as an upperclass courtesan and "acquired" a Roman name. This occupation, and the income from it, allows me certain freedoms and luxuries, along with the ability to hire tutors. I frequent parties and I am known as an artist and for my wit and my willingness to debate the most learned. This has also lead to the support of the certain individuals. And, despite expectations, I receive additional income from a few business and gladiators, all of which are free and paid well for their services. I often travel to Alexandria as I have a fondness for the library there. I am also a devotee of Isis for which I attribute my success.
