"Ronam" was the name given to the dimensionally displaced band of Roman soldiers led by Marcus Scaurus. It originated when a servitor mispronounced the Romans' name while introducing them to a crowd of Videssian social-elites at a banquet being held in their honor. Eventually it was corrected, but the name was still used by some Videssians. Scaurus and his men - and the Gaulish warrior Viridovix, who hated being grouped with his ex-foes - came to accept the name.
