Despite the shaky financial status of the husband, she likes to wear expensive dresses and jewelry, perhaps in an effort to compete with Ilithyia. Being tall, with blue eyes and imposing size almost always having a flawless appearance. Your natural hair is cut short, but she always wears a long, curly wig of blonde, red or brown, and preferably in most times the redhead. In Gods of the Arena is revealed that Lucretia inherited the extravagant taste of her best friend, and lover, Gaia, and after her death he adopted the strong red tone. In Vengeance, after her husband's death, she changes her appearance and wears wigs and dark colors, less revealing dresses, possibly in mourning for her husband. In many situations uses beauty as a weapon, aware of the power that has amid macho Roman society.

Lucretia was a very conflicted character with great depth of both love and disappointment. Despite being someone full of distorted feelings, on the one hand, she really loves her husband and their efforts to greatness, but otherwise, she recently fell in love with Crixus, with whom she is having an affair. Concerned with business and social affairs of her husband, she enjoys working with him as a counselor, stimulating ambition husband who wanted greater recognition among the Romans. Many deaths committed by Batiatus and his slaves were mischievously whispered by his poisonous mouth, doing anything to get what they want. Such acts include the killing of a child with a man plotting to kill her husband, despite her express displeasure with this act. Still, she did not let that hinder your emotions to her husband and finally accepted his actions as a necessary evil.


Had their slaves as non entities, but objects, and therefore has no qualms about having them raped or murdered by her own pleasure. She and her husband often attended raping them together, and she was particularly aroused by the sight of him violating them, as in Gods of the Arena used his slaves Melitta and Diona to quench the sexual perversions of visitors to the ludus. She originally sees Crixus as a sex object, rarely even talking to him or kissing him, although she really believed that he loved her. Despite these views, she feels a deep sense of betrayal when any of your slaves disobey her, even if she believes that the betrayal was justified and expressed their anger through tortures.


In Gods of the Arena, Lucretia and Batiatus only recently were left to manage the ludus. She is depicted as a little more innocent and less lascivious, the thought of sleeping with a slave or gladiator invited by his childhood friend and guest, Gaia, cause you disgust. Until then there is no other who she is sexually interested beyond Batiatus. Later Gaia entices Lucretia taking opium while high, the two friends share a romantic sexual encounter, this remains without knowledge of Batiatus, though he and the two finally begin to engage in threesome.
