Odysseus is another playable character in Warriors:Legend of Troy. Odysseus became a war hero when he came up with the idea for the Trojan horse.
Role in GameEdit
Many years before the Trojan War, Odysseus, King of Ithaka, meets with King Tyndareos of Sparta, who is having trouble finding a mate for Helen. Tyndareos wants to grant Helen's request to marry Meneloas without violent protest from her many suitors. Odysseus offers a solution: make an oath with all the kings to protect Helen's marriage, no matter who is chosen to be her husband. In exchange for this solution, Tyndareos must convince his brother to give his daughter, Penelope, to Odysseus as his wife. Tyndareos agrees and the rivaling kings are tricked into peace. But when Paris abducts Helen, Menelaos uses the same oath to raise an army to retrieve his wife from Troy. Odysseus regrettably obeys as he blames himself for contriving it.
Odysseus' earliest contribution is clearing ground for the Greeks after their ships land on Trojan territory. Years later, when Apollo releases a plague on the Greeks for defiling his temple, Odysseus is the one to convince Agamemon to return the daughter of the temple to the Trojans. The incident eventually causes Achilles' withdraw from the war and a plummet of Greek morale. In an attempt to restore their spirits, Odysseus and Menelaos learn from a captured spy the location of the Thrakens' camp, one of Troy's allies. They commence a night raid on the third-party forces and, though they are successful, ally morale continues to dwindle due to Hektor's leadership.
The Greeks are pushed back to Troy's shores yet their situation brightens with Achilles' return to the war. Odysseus continues to play a minor part in their comeback, such as confronting Penthesilea and joining Ajax to retrieve Achilles' body. Both he and Ajax discover a secret passageway into Troy to steal the Palladion from the Temple Athena, for prophecy holds that this artifact must be taken to commence Troy's downfall.
To end the war, Odysseus builds a wooden horse and hides himself, Menelaos and several other men inside while the others take their ships and hide. When the Trojans see the horse, they consider it a Greek gift to Athena to calm her anger. They take the horse into the city. Odysseus and company emerge during nightfall, opening the gates for the Greeks outside to charge the unguarded Troy. Odysseus and Menelaos personally invade the palace and find Helen, Priam and Paris. The prince wounds Menelaos so Odysseus fights in his stead. He triumphs yet it is Menelaos who kills the Trojan prince. As the angry king threatens to do the same for Helen, Odysseus halts him to prevent needless bloodshed. As Priam then asks mercy for his people, Agamemnon enters and unceremoniously kills the Trojan king. Disgusted by the violent conclusion and by Agamemnon's arrogance, Odysseus leaves and sets sail with the Greeks for home.
