= Historical Synopsis =
Achilles, the greatest warrior ever to grace Greece, is the son of a mortal king, Peleus of Phthia. His mother, however, was Thetis, a sea nymph or Nereid. It is said that Achilles was the bravest and most handsome warrior during the Trojan Wars. He was raised with his cousin, Patroclus and raised by his mother at Phyhia.
Some tales depict Achilles, as an infant, being dipped in the River Styx by his mother. This is where he obtained his invulnerability, with the exception of his heel. His heel is the only place Thetis held on to Achilles as she dipped him in the waters.
In a later text, it is said that King Peleus received word that his son would die in the Trojan War. So, the king disguised Achilles as a woman to keep him from certain death. Upon hearing that Troy could not be taken without Achilles, the Greeks searched and found him.
For nine years, Achilles secured victories of twelve cities around Troy. In his tenth year, Achilles refused service after being separated from his beloved Briseis. So, his cousin paraded in disguise to look like Achilles. Prince Hector of Troy slew Achilles’ cousin. In return, Achilles obtained new armor from the God Hephaestus and avenged his cousin by killing Hector. This set in motion a vital price of historical text. The story goes that Hector’s brother, Paris, shot Achilles with an arrow being guided by the God Apollo himself. It is said the arrow kill Achilles…or did it?

Introduction written by C.S. Ratliff
My name is Achilles. You may have heard of me before from- who’s kidding? Of course you’ve heard of me. You may have heard the greatly exaggerated news of my death. Truth be told, I didn’t die! In fact, I vanished from the history books and made my mark in secret for the last several millennia. I’ve decided to come home. Old flames to reignite, old enemies to slay, that sort of business. Speaking of business, I bought the old Athens Arena, now it’s the Golden Shields Arena where I train warriors, the best warriors.
