Achilles, the Hero of the First Autis War
The Second Trojan War started and escalated quickly. Odysseus named it the First Autis War. Troy was no longer sheltered by its high fortress walls. The war started when Troy was still in preparation. It only took five years for Greece to be victorious once more.
At the center of Greece’s forces was Achilles, an undisputed hero with divine powers. He murdered Troy’s hero, Hector, and brought glory to Greece once more. But when his memory was restored in exchange for ending the war, he fell into a deep despair. He refused Zeus’s offer and chose to stay on Autis instead.
He said, “I, Achilles, hereby return my immortal powers so I can die with honor on the battlefield. Instead, I ask for another chance to fight against Troy under fair circumstances.”
