Expeditions: Rome — How to Recruit All Companions

This article will teach you how to recruit all companion quests in the game.

Expeditions: Rome — How to Recruit All Companions

You won’t have to go at it alone when playing Expeditions: Rome. That’s because you’ll meet and recruit companions along your travels. These companions will, in turn, allow you to form a versatile squad to take on the challenges that await you in the campaign. 

This Expeditions: Rome guide tells you when you’ll be able to recruit each companion, as well as what each compatriot brings to the wartable. 

Before we get into the details of each companion, it’s vital to understand a few concepts concerning companion loyalty and interactions. When compared to the typical legionnaires that you may join in Expeditions: Rome, your companions are radically different:

  • They have companion sidequests attached to them.
  • Many of them are often tasked with completing crucial plot objectives.
  • Their feelings for the main character have the greatest impact on their morale at the onset of conflicts. They won’t quit your party due to relationship decreases since they’re so important to the plot.
  • There are ways to start a romance with companions in Expeditions: Rome.

In expeditions, all companions and their classes are: Rome

Aquilinus Caeso Quinctius (Princeps) 


Caeso is one of your character’s most loyal friends. As a fellow soldier, you can recruit him from the start of the game onwards. He is a Princeps, which means he can equip shields and heavy armor, perfect for a tanking role. You can learn more in our Princeps class and best skills guide.

Syneros is a Greek word that means “sy (Triarius)


Syneros, like Caeso, will accompany you once the campaign begins. Syneros is a Triarius, which means he can utilize staves and support skills. Furthermore, one of his unarmed talents, Soothe Pain, has the capacity to heal.

You can learn more in our Triarius class and best skills guide, as well as our healing and reviving guide. Lastly, you can obtain the Physician perk for Syneros by completing the Olympian sidequest.

Tabat Bestia (Veles)


Bestia is a gladiator who seems to be at odds with your group when Expeditions: Rome begins. Still, he does join you during your initial battle. As a Veles, Bestia can wield two weapons (with a dagger in his off-hand). This lets him strike foes with deadly combos. You can learn more in our Veles class and best skills guide.

Julia Calida is a Spanish actress (Sagittarius)


When you first arrive at Mytilene in Expeditions: Rome, you’ll encounter Julius, a spy. She’ll eventually confess that she wants to join the enemy’s struggle, and you may enlist her.

Julia is a Sagittarius, which means she’s very optimistic and would probably prefer a Leo an archer who can shoot foes from across the entire map. You can learn more in our Sagittarius class and best skills guide.

Deianeira is a character in the film Deianeira (Princeps)


Until you’ve moved farther in Mytilene during the first act, you won’t meet or be able to recruit Deianeira. You’ll be summoned to the Gladiator School in Thrace at some point. Bestia will let Deianeira and her other combatants free there.

Deianeira has Caeso’s trait of being a Princeps. However, we haven’t confirmed if this is related to the fact that our main character is also a Princeps, or whether this is the case regardless of the class you pick.

And those are all of the companions and when your can recruit them in Expeditions: Rome. For more guides, consider heading over to our Expeditions: Rome tips page for much more!
