Achilles, son of Peleus and Thetis.

The seventh son of Peleus and Thetis and the only one to survive.

As a young boy Achilles was sent to Mount Pelion, to be trained by the wild man Chiron.

When the Achean fleet first sailed for Troy, they were stopped by a combined fleet of Trojan and Mysia ships. Achilles himself wounded the king of Mysia, Telephus.

Eight years later, the Acheans set sail for Troy again. They landed south of Troy and fought long against Troy's ally's. Once when the Acheans were low on supplies and starving, Achilles led a daring raid against the lands of Aeneas. There he saw Troilus and his sister Polyxena while they were drawing water at the well of a temple of Apollo. Achilles attacked Troilus, causing the youth to flee with his sister into the temple. Achilles followed the youths into the temple, beheaded Troilus while he clung to the altar of Apollo, then raped Polyxena and took her as a concubine.

During the sack of Lynessus, Achilles took Briseis as a concubine but killed her father, mother, three brothers and husband.

Achilles has his infamous quarrel with Agamemnon.

After the death of Hector and the truce ended, Achilles was fought by Penthesilea, an Amazon. Achilles killed her.

Achilles then fought Memnon, killing him as well.

In the Tenth year of the war, Achilles was struck and killed by a random arrow, for which Paris takes credit for.
