ladies who should be playing mythical head bitches in charge | OONA CHAPLIN as PAX ROMANA, the personification of roman peace; she is the scream of the roman sword, she is the spirit of the empire.

Peace is not gentle. This is the lesson the empire learns at her knee, suckling at her breast; peace is sword and fire, it is might and courage and cunning, it is unbending steel. Peace is pacification; peace is conquest until your words are the only ones heard, until all the nations of the world are bowing before you. She smiles down at the child on her knee, at the greedy, suckling mouth of her daughter. One day she will stand tall and fast and she will fell entire kingdoms in a single campaign. One day she will build a temple to her in a field of war, and she will teach the world that peace is not gentle, that peace is not kind, that peace is not soft. Peace is pacification, and oh, Pax thinks. There will be no peace in the world but Romana.
