The prominent characters In Book I are Celts, Gauls and Germans. Orgetorix was a prominent character among the Helvetii, and Marcus Messala was one of the two prominent consuls who aspired to (or lusted after) power and wealth. Marcus Piso was another.

Orgetorix became ambassador to convince the prominent Sequani character Casticus, the son of Catamantaledes, to take over power in his land.
