About Him

Overview... a tribune of the Roman Empire overseeing Jerusalem. Messala attempts to increase his hegemony by employing the support of his childhood friend Judah Ben-Hur. Unfortunately for Messala, Judah refuses to sell out his fellow Jews, creating a deep rift between the two old friends and leading to great conflict between the two for years to come.

Personality… power-hungry but (mostly) responsible. Messala is determined to live up to his position in the glorious Roman Empire. Although he grew up alongside many of his subjects, he is now focused on ruling with an iron fist. It's the way he believes an empire deserves to rule, even if it means sacrificing many of the things – and people – he once held dear.
