Achilles

Achilles was a powerful Greek warrior and hero famed for his swift-footedness. His mother, the sea goddess Thetis, tried to make him immortal, but one spot on his heel was vulnerable. His role in the Trojan War was the center of Homer s The Iliad in fact, and it was prophesied that the Greeks couldn t win the war without him. Once he arrived, however, his wrath began to take over. This brave and confident warrior let pride and a hot temper get in his way, and it led to tragedy. Read how the great hero had great decisions to make, and how his anger often blinded him from wiser choices.
