**The fact that Pious has a statue among the champions employed by [[Mantorok]] suggest that Pious was intended to be a guardian of the Ancients and help prevent their return. The destruction of his statue is symbolic of his failure and corruption by his chosen Ancient.

*Pious Augustus is the only playable character (not counting [[Anthony]], for him being totally unable to die) whose game over does not mention that he died to the Eternal Darkness or that as a result humanity will surely be vanquished. Instead, the game over message states that Pious has perished following the Emperor's request, and that the Ancients' artifacts remain buried in the sands waiting to be discovered.
