Storyboard Text

  • Approach
  • Ordeal
  • Reward
  • Patroclus suggests taking Achilles's armor in order to slow down the Trojans while Achilles stays in his tent away from the battle. Both agree on the plan, and Patroclus heads out to battle, fighting bravely. However, he is killed by Hector's spear, and when Achilles is informed by Antilochus of his death, he is heartbroken with grief.
  • The Road Back
  • While he is mourning over his friend's death, Achilles is visited by Thetis, who reminds him that he is fated to die right after he kills Hector to avenge Patroclus. Heartbroken, she gives him arms forged by the god Hephaestus himself and bids him farewell.
  • Resurrection
  • Grief and a thirst for vengeance drives Achilles to refuse to eat and drink, only focusing on killing Hector to avenge Patroclus. Thanks to his indestructible weaponry, the outcome of the battle between him and vulnerable Hector is in his favor.
  • Return with Elixir
  • After Hector finds out Athena tricked him into certain death, Achilles kills him by driving his spear into him near his throat. Victorious, he takes his armor back from him and proceeds to hitch his body to his chariot and drag it around the walls of Troy until it is mutilated, much to the gods' displeasure.
  • Priam, Hector's father, visits Achilles's tent to confront him. He pleads for pity, having willingly stretched out his hand to the one who killed his son. Awed, Achilles exchanges his sorrow with Priam's, sympathizing with him. When the conversation is over, Priam takes Hector's body hope to burn on a funeral pyre.
  • In the end, Achilles is mortally wounded in a battle where Paris shoots an arrow into his heel, which is his only weak spot, and he dies as a result. After his funeral pyre burning, his remains are placed with those of Patroclus in the same urn, and he is remembered as a fearless, powerful warrior of the Greek army.
