Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus was Hannibal's Roman nemesis during the Second Punic War. He is believed to have died around 183 BC. As a Drifter, he is the same age as Hannibal, who he is seen constantly arguing with, claiming that "a winner takes all" since he won at Zama. Nevertheless, Scipio respects Hannibal greatly, saying he is worth a million men, because though a million men would not budge Rome, Hannibal nearly tore it down.
Scipio appears as a man who seems to have been aged for a while, he has short sand-colored/blonde hair and he always wears his traditional Roman Attire.
Scipio was an honorable man who does things fairly, despite he quarrels with Hannibal Barca, He still respects him and serves as his friend.
it seems that Scipio's role is sort of like a Friend or advisor to Hannibal Barca because of Hannibal's age. He seems to also have a strong bond with Hannibal.
