Achilles was the best fighter of the Greeks besieging Troy in the Trojan War.
When Odysseus journeyed to the Underworld to seek the advice of the dead prophetTeiresias, he encountered the shade of Achilles. Achilles had killed the Trojanhero Hector, in single combat and was eventually killed by Hector’s brotherParis. Paris didn’t actually kill Achilles, it was mainly Apollo. Paris shot anarrow and Apollo guided it to Achilles’ one weak spot, his heel. Achilleswouldn’t have even been vulnerable here, but when his mom, Thetis, dipped himinto the river Styx to make him invulnerable. But Thetis forgot she was holdinghim by the heel and missed that spot while dipping him.
Achilles doesn’t havethat much relevancy to the Odyssey but he was in the Trojan War at the verybeginning. I chose Achilles because he was a really good warrior, but he wasn’tcompletely invulnerable which means it was possible to kill him. Though I thinkhe could of lived longer if wouldn’t of have been for Apollo.
