10 YEARS INTO THE TROJAN WAR ...
You are now belong to the Greeks. I am Achilles, the greatest warrior on the Greeks' side.
During the long and tiring battle, the Greeks capture two trojan maidens, Chryseis and Briseis. Agamemnon, the leader of the Greeks forces, takes Chryseis as his prize, and Achilles, the Greeks’ greatest warrior, claims Briseis. Chryseis’s father, Chryses, offers an enormous ransom in return for his daughter, but Agamemnon refuses to give Chryseis back. Her father then prays to Apollo, who sends a plague upon the place where the Greeks' had setup camp.
I refuse to fight in this war any longer! I will not give up Briseis for compensation for Agamemnon not wanting to give up his prize! NO. I will not fight for another minute.
With Achilles refusing to fight, the Greeks' suffer many significant losses. The Trojans and Greeks' continued to fight each other in a gruesome and ruthless battle, until Achilles gave his permission to let his cousin, Patroclus, replace him in the battle, wearing his own armour. Patroclus did a fine job of assisting the Greeks', however with the help of Apollo, Troja Warrior Hektor slayed Patroclus. When Achilles heard of this tragedy, he was enraged. He declared revenge on Hektor, and once again, lead the Greeks' in battle.
Hektor didn't intend on Achilles rejoining the battle, but when he learnt that Achilles decided to lead the Greeks' once again, Hektor ran around the city of Troy's perimeter three times before Athena tricked him into stopping and confronting Achilles.
I must keep running! Achilles is right behind me!
