Plot summary

30 B.C.: Alexandria, Egypt. Cleopatra oversees the execution of an Octavian sympathiser, who warns that the Octavian army closes in on her. Knowing that the woman was walking into her death to challenge her, Cleopatra is reminded of a certain woman from long ago.

44 B.C.: Rome. Following the death of Septimius, Aya prowls the rooftops of Rome for her target, familiar to her now thanks to Brutus. The target is Magnus, an orator for Caesar, and a swift arrow from Aya eliminates him mid speech. The two would be assassins retreat to a nearby bath house where Aya scolds Brutus for trying to delay her shot upon Magnus, reminding him that she will not be spoken down to. Brutus reflects that he cannot believe that Caesar has reached the point of becoming a dictator, and hopes the orator assassination would send a clear message. Cassius arrives to relate that it did not, and that Caesar intends to cling to power. Brutus relates that he has had visions of Rome burning, and that Caesar should now die. Aya desires to kill him immediately, but Cassius and Brutus argue that Romans respond to spectacle - and must wait for the Ides of March for the assassination.

Aya walks across Rome, observing slavery, oppression and poverty around her. She misses Egypt, but knows that she must also save those around her now. She encounters Mark Antony, who politely advises that he knows of her via Cleopatra and warns that leaders always do what they must.

The Ides of March arrives. In their home, Caesar is warned by his wife to abandon his decision to go to the Senate that day, and that Cleopatra might try to stop him. He relates that he fears no-one and leaves to prepare.

Brutus tries to give Aya his dagger for the act, but she tells him to keep it. The two arrive at the Senate, where Caesar makes his address to the senators. Aya, dons a nearly gown raising it above her head like a hood. With his back turned to her, she strikes Caesar with her hidden blade. So begins the assassination, with each senator one by one stabbing him until finally Brutus brings forth his dagger and delivers the killing blow. Word reaches the public outside, and Mark Antony warns Aya that Brutus has made a mistake - things are now about to get much worse.[2]
