When the office was first established, it did not carry negative connotations, however the right of the office to wield absolute power has made its name a synonym for oppressive and/or abusive rule. Outside Selucia there have been few instances of titular use of the office, with notable exceptions in Tukarali and Talmoria.
Dictator Caius Cassius Sophus established a special militia called the Dictatorial Guard to protect the Dictator and the Republic. His successor in the office, Octavia Flavia Hadriana, reformed the militia into the Republican Guard, but with largely the same function.
It was abolished in 4138 under the Government of Aelius Celer, in collaboration with Consul Tera Pisthis.
