Hannibal of Carthage is my de-facto favorite hero of ancient times. The Roman scourge. A man who killed 80 thousand Romans in one day! More men were killed with spears and swords than all of the Vietnam war in ONE day! He was a strategic, operational, and tactical genius. So, I was intrigued when I saw a character named Hannibal in Aristeia. Then, when I read his card and tactics I was like, "Did CB create a character off of Hannibal Barca?!" Because, the current why Hannibal plays sure seems like he is a tactical genius on the game board. :) Only CB staff will know this answer. And, I know the Infinity game has a few characters that hearken back to ancient times in the faction called Aleph. And, I'm thinking Aleph is the one in charge of Aristeia fluff wise. But, I haven't had the chance to read all the fluff yet.
