Teague was an acolyte of the Hidden Ones based in the bureau under the Temple of Ceres near Glevum during the late-4th century.

Biography

Following his adoption of Christianity as the state religion for the Roman Empire in 380, the Emperor Theodosius I supported the campaign of persecution against the pagans living within the Empire. In Britannia, executions of pagans Britons became a routine occurrence, and the Hidden Ones, who protected the Christians when they were themselves persecuted in the previous centuries, decided to act.[1]

Teague and a magister were tasked to execute three priests in a public fashion to send a message to the Christians. The mission was a partial success, as Vitus, Secunda, and Agapitus were executed, but Teague's master later succumbed to his wounds.[1]

Legacy

Five centuries later, the report of Teague's mission was recovered by the Viking Eivor Varinsdottir as she explored the Roman ruins of the Temple of Ceres near Glowecestre.[1]

Behind the scenes

The name Teague is of Irish and Gaelic origin meaning "poet, philosopher". This possibly suggests that the Hidden One may be of Gaelic ethnicity.
