Christian Saint

Military Martyr

A Scythian soldier serving Rome, he was given a sword by an angel as a gift from the lord. “And don’t you forget him,” it said.

This sword led him to victory in the next battle. The Emperor Decius was so pleased he promoted our hero to General and invited him to the celebratory sacrifices to the Gods.

Our Saint just had to turn it down and explain that the victory was all due to Christianity.

Such ingratitude earned him a swift but painful death. He was probably the shortest-lived general ever.
