Flavus was the older brother of Arminius. Both entered services with the Roman Empire serving as German auxiliaries during the Pannonia uprising. Flavus remained loyal to Rome during the rebellion raised by Arminius and the subsequent Battle of the Teutoburg Forest. He participated in the punitive expedition sent by Tiberius against Arminius in AD 14-16.

Flavus in Give Me Back My Legions! Edit

Flavus wholeheartedly embraced Romanization, unlike his brother Arminius. However, he was unaware of his brother's true feelings and so was unable to anticipate his rebellion and the subsequent Battle of the Teutoburg Forest.
