Luciana is Tobias’s mother, a once-beautiful patrician (someone of high birth) who still has many influential friends and a substantial amount of money.

It was through her influence that Tobias got his job with Tiberius in the first place, and now he is in Rome, Luciana is constantly trying to find her son a new position.

Luciana seems to know everybody, but it’s Marcus who has the warmest feelings for her, and Luciana doesn’t hesitate to take advantage of him any way she can, either on her own behalf or on behalf of Tobias.
