A dragon that hates its demon handler as much as the Roman army it fights.

Finally, in the last battle, the citizens of Carthage are driven from behind their walls by   Asdrubal,  and thrown at the Roman army in human waves of fury. Attacked from the air by a dragon and the ground by hordes of tortured citizens, the last battle forces Regulus into a terrible choice. Will he sacrifice his life, his legion, and his love to save Rome?
