If that is what you wish. I can help you out a bit there, but my expertise is in Roman and Greek myths, not so much Egyptian.

I cant claim to be an expert on it but I am a big big fan of Egyptian Mythology.

Hmmm, can some people go over some of the major "events" of the Odyessy for me? I haven't read it in a while, and I'd like to see how much you guys know :p.

Patroclus was the son of Menelaus, King of Opus in Locris. After an accident with his friend Clysonymus (a quarrel, where Patroclus killed him), Patroclus was sent to Peleus, where he befriended Achilles. They grew up together as close friends, and traveled to Troy together. When Achilles refused to fight for Aegemmenon, Patroclus took Achilles armour and fought instead, pretending to be him in oder to scare the troops of Troy. Hector killed Patroclus in single combat, and took the armour from him. This greatly angered and upset Achilles, who vowed not to rest until Hector was dead, he also honored his friend's death with burial rites. That enough Rahman? :D
