Gaius Claudius Glaber was one of the main antagonists in Spartacus: Blood and Sand and is husband of Ilithyia. He was the main antagonist of Season 2, Spartacus: Vengeance.
He was a Roman army legatus who is responsible for Spartacus' enslavement as a gladiator. Glaber requested the aid of Spartacus' tribe of Thracians in return for Roman aid against their enemies. When Glaber's interests changed, the Thracians rebelled and Glaber put down the insurrection. He then sold Spartacus' wife Sura to a Syrian slave trader, and later Spartacus to the ludus of Batiatus. Many months later, after it was revealed to him that his wife murdered Licinia, the cousin of Marcus Crassus, he is forced to grant Batiatus patronage in his quest to gain political station. After the rebellion, he vows to find Spartacus and bring him to his knees. His marriage to Ilithya becomes strained, and after she's been taken by Gannicus, and thought to be dead, Glaber begins an affair with Seppia. Ilithyia returns, and saves Glaber from Seppia, who planned on killing him after she discovered he murdered her brother. Glaber and Ilithya then reunite. In the season 2 finale, Spartacus and his followers escape the mountaintop that Glaber had trapped them on, and began bombarding the temple Glaber now occupied with his own siege equipment. During the battle, Spartacus and Glaber fight once more with Spartacus finally slaying his hated foe by stabbing him through the chest, then ramming his blade down his throat.
Glaber was incredibly cruel,sadistic, spoil,rude, and arrogant terrible roman politicain.He believes that he owns Rome at first glance and thoughts Spartacus was just no more than a dog .He is thrist for power over time yet only refused by his wife's cruel father Abinneius.Like most Romans act as if he was greater and thinks that he would be the one getting everything with Little care for anyone and brutal to people lower than him constantly killing people for a person that mentions or people betrays him like when he announced that who every speaks about Spartacus is to be crucified or killed which even involves family and kids.He always tries to make the public thinks he's "the good guy". Everyone of his status laughs and mocks him that.He doesn't love his spoiled wife as she thought he would recused her only left behind.
