Opening a few years before the arrival of Spartacus, Batiatus finds himself in control of his father's ludus, while his father is away living in semi-retirement. Seeking to make a name for himself beyond the ludus, Batiatus selects his most skilled gladiator, Gannicus the Celt, to win favor of nobleman, Solonius, in order to be a part of the opening games in the new Capua arena. And thus, the story of the Celt warrior Gannicus, the original champion of the House of Batiatus begins. The origins of the Gaul, Crixus are also explored. Batiatus overpays for the Gaul slave, Crixus, seeing that the Gaul has potential to be a great gladiator. At the same time, Batiatus faces the local crime lord Tullius and his teenage hechman Vettius, the owner of a rival ludus, and learns that he isn't yet in their league. Meanwhile, Lucretia welcomes the sudden return to Capua of Gaia, an old friend. Gaia is something of a wild child widow who likes to party, have lots of sex (with both men and women), and takes opium. Lucretia seems ready to go along. The introdution of veteran gladiator Oenomaus and his slave wife Melitta, as well as Syrian slave recruits Ashur and Dagan also occur.

A week has passed since he received a severe beating at the hands of Tullius' men and Batiatus has now recovered sufficiently. Tullius sends him a message to the effect that he acted hastily by saying 'no' to his offer to purchase Gannicus, and offers a compromise. Batiatus is in no mood to compromise however and plans his own revenge. Batiatus succeeds in securing the position of primus for his man Gannicus in Vettius' upcoming games through an elaborate scheme: Quintillius Varis comes to Capua to select gladiators for his games and Gaia, who knows him, plots to have him come to Batiatus' house where Batiatus will seemingly go to any length to impress Varis but his blind enthusiasm does not sit well with the men. Meanwhile, Oenomaus is challenged by Doctore, killing him and receiving the Başlık of the new Doctore. Gannicus and Melitta are ordered to have sex with each other for Quintilius Varis' entertainment, leaving both of them deeply and emotionally troubled.

Batiatus is pleased with himself having arranged for Gannicus to appear in the primus of Quintillius Varis' games. He is not however prepared for the sudden return of his estranged father, Titus, who arrives home to find his son cavorting in a threesome with Gaia and Lecretia. He treats his son with disdain and has heard of the mess he's made of things with Tullius. Titus laughs when he hears that Gannicus will represent the house in the games and sets out to undo everything the younger Batiatus schemed to arrange by placing the inexperienced Crixus in where Gannicus was to fight. Auctus, on the other hand, gets killed by Crixus in an intense battle. Meanwhile, things are run amuck when Oenomaus feels he does not deserve his new position as Doctore. While father and son are away, Varis returns to the Batiatus home with a friend, Cossutius, expecting to again experience the pleasures of his previous visit.

The power struggle between the younger and the elder Batiatus shakes the roots of their house and sees alliances formed and loyalties divided. Batiatus is having more than just a bit of difficulty accepting his father's ongoing - and seemingly permanent - presence at home. The patriarch refuses to take on the powerful Tullius and continually tells his son to learn his place to respect and fear the crime lord. When Gaia sees someone she had once met in Rome, she introduces him to Lucretia and he immediately comments on what he has heard about the pleasures available at her home. Gaia again sees an opportunity to make gains for the House of Batiatus but the elder Batiatus would never allow such revelry in their so they convince him to leave for day or two. Lucretia sides with her husband albeit reluctantly in performing a risky plan while Gannicus finds himself on unstable ground.

Gaia's death strengthens Quintus Batiatus' resolve to get revenge against Tullius. Titus announces a tournament to determine the worth of the men that make up his stable of gladiators. Crixus, dedicated to proving himself, is drawn into the power play within the house. In responding to his father's ultimatum that he choose between his home and his wife, Batiatus attempts to gain time is not appreciated by Lucretia who believes she would have him leave. He convinces her otherwise and she pushes him to settle on his course while she has her own plan. Lucretia also has her own solution to her husband's desire for a son. Meanwhile, Melitta and Gannicus increasingly lust after one another. Gannicus finds a solution to their situation but fate presents a different outcome.
