Two heroes of trojan war named Ajax .I will give you the story of the one that you know from the game. (the other one was called Ajax Locros) Ajax Telamonios was his name. He was a real tall guy. Brave and very strong. Since his father Eakidis king of Salamina island ( his mother was the daughter of the king of Megara Alkinthos and granddaughter of Pelopas)was a friend of Heracles (Hercules) when Ajax was born Heracles took him in his hands and covered him with his lions hide and asked his father Zeus to take care of the baby. Ajax body became immune exept one small part that was not covered with the hide under his armpit. During trojan war he and Achilleas were tha braviest soldiers. He was also the one that was protecting the body of Achilleas when he died not to fall in Trojans hands and also the one that stopped Trojans from destroying Greek Ships during a very strong attack. He was encouraging Greeks all the time and never stop fighting ;even when Achilleas left and did not wanted to fight anymore even when Greek soldiers lost there strenght and courage. He fought with Ektoras (Hector) the best and stronges Trojan soldier but tha fight last all day without any winner ; Both fighters recognise the strength; spirit and courage of the opponent and ended the fight with respect by exchanging gifts ektoras gave a Silver sword to Ajax who gave him a Purplecover belt. But when goddess Athina try to help him he refuses her assistance and said to her "Goddess go and guide the hands of other men the fight will not outcome against my side" The goddess never forgive him for his insolence. When Achilleas died Greeks wanted to give his weapons to the breavest soldier of all .They could not decide who was ;Ajax or Odysseas so they asked Trojan wise men captives. Since trojans hate Ajax they gave the weapons to Odysseas.. Ajax could not stand the unfairness and rush to kill them all but Zeus sends confusion to Ajax mind .Ajax thought that the lamps of nearby shepherds were the soldiers and start sloughting them .When his mind was cleared again and he was informed of his actions he left the camp and when to a deserted place he prayed to Ermis (Hermes ) and asked Erinies and Ermis to became the witnesses of the unfairness and for what he was going to do . He placed his sword on the ground with the blade facing up. He then felt of the blade the sword pass through his body under his armpit-- the only part of his body that was not immune-- and Ajax died. even the Gods recognise the unfairness and when Odysseas ship was sink (I guess you know the story after the trojan war Odysseas wondered in the seas for years untill he return home) they have send the weapons to the underworld and gave them to Ajax . But even after that Ajax soul still straiten.
great legend...but....shouldn't this be in rants and raves...just a speculation...but it doesn't really directly relate to aom....but good job writing it all down ;)
that was a nice summary:nodding: , but the grammer was very incorrect. it didn't matter though, cuz i still read it fine... Anyway, why do you think ES liked Ajax so much and kept him alive the whole campaign?:confused: And if you can't answer that, than do you know if there is a real story to Arkantos?:confused:
lol....prolly...cause mythology is all about stories and legends....i'll look next time im on google....:)
stop posting this stuff here, it goes in rants and raves
