Each centering around a protagonist (Artorius Castus/Robin Longstride) who serves a powerful kingdom (Rome/England) that he eventually becomes disillusioned with and walks away from to become a leader of his own. Both became greatly influenced in their ideals by a father-figure in their lives (Pelagius/Thomas Longstride) who he comes to discover wound up being executed by the ruling powers for his teachings promoting the inherent rights of freedom and equality for all.
