Time-travel Story Set in OTL
|Type of Appearance:||Direct|
|Occupation:||Slave, tavern-worker, prostitute|
Julia was Umma's slave in Carnuntum. She assisted Nicole Gunther when she time-travelled to the Roman town of Carnuntum, and into the body of Julia's mistress, acting as a guide to the new world Nicole found of herself in. She was also the closest thing to a friend the latter had in Carnuntum.
Intially, Nicole thought that Julia was just an employee. Once she learned that Julia was a slave, she planned to manumit Julia. After some complicated legal work, Nicole succeeded in this, which estranged Umma's family. Much to Nicole's chagrin, Julia continued her career as a prostitute, but on her terms, as she enjoyed the world's oldest profession. During the measles plague and subsequent German invasion that befell Carnuntum, Julia cared for the grateful Gunther, and also provided emotional support when her employer was raped by a Roman soldier.
She was also the one who advised Nicole to go ask Emperor Marcus Aurelius for compensation. Right before Nicole was sent back to her home century, Julia and Nicole had an argument that Nicole never had a chance to apologize for, leaving the latter feeling guilty.
