Famous in his own day as a aesthete, artist, and orator and to later generations as a cautionary tale, Quintus Fabulus Maximus — not to be confused with nor having any relation to Elven war hero Quintus Marcellinus Styracosaurus — is famous for his flamboyant fashion sense and artistic achievements and infamous more his philandering ways and the circumstances of his untimely death (the two being directly related).
A self-professed professional lover of beauty, Fabulus Maximus’ love of beauty was focused primarily on the female gender and Fabulus Maximus’ numerous lover affairs were well-known even in his own day.
Unfortunately for Fabulus Maximus, his propensity for carrying on multiple concurrent romances proved unsustainable, and ultimately fatal. Unable to conceal his numerous former girlfriends from his numerous current girlfriends, Fabulus Maximus ultimately fell victim to a conspiracy undertaken by these many, many jilted women and was ambushed by them on the steps of the Elven Empire’s senate house.
Famously, Quintus Fabulus Maximus’ last words were recorded as “Not the face!”, though certain historians doubt this account.
