Spartacus Clemente Throwdini was a child star in his family circus. Before his parents volunteered him to the Starvation Games.

Spartacus won the starvation games in record time, ensuring his family would live in luxury for the rest of their days, but he never went home. He was too angry at the way they had callously thrown him into the games, even relatives of those that die in the games are handsomely rewarded and he felt that his parents cared more about the money than him.

Tired of the cynical, and often criminal, lifestyle of the traveling circus, Spartacus used his new found fame to garner entry into the Dungeon Running circuits, creating his stage persona of Switchblade as he did so.

Switchblade has risen rapidly through the Dungeon Running series, becoming a fan favourite and is now ready for the major league.
