Pronunciation : HEHK-tur

(Greek Mortal) HECTOR

Heroic son of Priam and Hecuba, the crown prince of Troy. He lead the Trojans into battle because his dad was a little too old.

Hector tried all ways to war-dodge, attempting to persuade Paris to return Helen to Menelaus and everything. He was quite the voice of reason during Greek council meetings, but when his words fell on deaf ears he threw himself into battle whole-heartedly.

Smashing through the Greek frontline was just the start as he mowed down oodles of opposition troops hand to hand and was in the process of setting ablaze the Greek fleet before Poseidon rose up to put out the flames and force the Trojans back.

When a sulking Achilles withdrew from the battlefield after a spat with Agamemnon over war-booty, Ajax stepped up to the plate to fight the mighty Hector. Unfortunately Ajax didn't realise Hector was mighty and fought him to a standstill, wounding him in the process, and Hector was so impressed he gave Ajax his sword.

Achilles was less impressed, especially after Hector killed his best buddy Patroclus, in fact he was so unimpressed that he dragged his carcass behind his chariot as he did laps of Troy and only returned it for burial after at the request of a distraught King Priam.
