First Appearance: TBFGK 104
Prior to Caesar being named Heir Designate, there were two Royal Heirs, both of whom Don and the troops of Transylvito eventually found unsatisfactory before they croaked. Caesar was popped as the Viscount of Vitalis, which made him a very minor Noble. He achieved his rise to power solely on personal merit. He is both a formidable fighter and a keen tactician. He is highly respected by all units on his side and has great Loyalty and Duty. Don King even admitted that Caesar is more popular with Transylvito's commanders than himself.
His position is now in doubt, because Don King has reconsidered the importance of Royalty, and is in the process of popping a new Royal Heir to replace Caesar. Caesar said that he and Don King used to understand one another, they could talk and had a good relationship. They now have some fundamental disagreements, which have destroyed the understanding. In particular, Caesar is opposed to Don's policy of rapidly building the power of Faq, because it has left Transylvito exposed to attack, losing cities and good people such as Broadway Tony and other Warlords. Caesar has grown to resent and despise Faq's Queen Jillian because of the investments being made for a woman he thinks is crazy and untrustworthy. Don believes that Caesar lacks the finesse and subtlety necessary to rule. He has therefore concluded that although Caesar may still have the qualities needed to be a very effective Chief Warlord, he is no longer a suitable heir. Don King has said that he was planning to 'retire' Caesar to manage a quiet level 2 city somewhere far away but Caesar made it clear he felt that was an unjust reward.
With the order to pop a third Royal heir to replace Caesar, Caesar feels betrayed by his King; he had already seriously suspected that he was set up when he was sent to retake Chocula. If he hadn't fought so well he would have been croaked the turn before Don King announced the creation of a new Royal heir. Also in a time where their defenses are stretched so thin the popping of a Royal heir requires vast resources and production capacity that he thinks could be far more wisely expended.
Don King has considered simply disbanding Caesar but has decided that course is unacceptable, because the loyalty and duty of all units on his side would suffer. If Caesar fell in battle it would be a different story, but Caesar is a very tough combatant. One of the few things that helps Caesar remain sane in the midst of this is his love affair with Bunny,Transylvito's Thinkamancer.
QiyAZi Wow! Great thinking! JK
He is probably at least level 8, as he was quite unfazed by Jillian's dagger-attack. (She's level 9).
As a Viscount, he was lower in social station than a Count like Vinny Doombats.
Real World References
- His name is probably a reference to Cesare Borgia
- Caesars Palace and Borgata are famous casinos. Given the thug/mafia appearance of many characters from Transylvito, Caesar Borgata may be named for the casinos. This would also slyly imply a mafia connection to the casinos
- His appearance may be based on Kiefer Sutherland's vampire character, David, from The Lost Boys, or on the vampire character Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel.
