Your Field Guide to Spotting Romulus and Remus

Back in the day, Romulus and Remus would've been pretty hard to tell apart. They were both tall, dark, and handsome, with well-worn armor and no-nonsense looks in their eyes. Oh yeah, and they were twins. Though they used to be inseparable, they're kind of at odds these days. Remus is still pretty ticked off that his brother, um, stabbed him to death. Pretty understandable. Anyway, if you're looking for Romulus, you'll have to head up to Olympus—the Roman version, anyway. He became a god for founding Rome and all that jazz. If you want to talk to Remus, though, you'll find him grumbling about his fate down in the dark of the Underworld.
