How does the year-old Shelley present her year-old self? What influences on her story does she mention? Based on her Introduction, can you identify any other possible influences?
Born from the sea goddess Thetis and the hero PeleusAchilles was blessed by the gods from birth. His mother Thetis, having greatly loved her son, had warmed him within holy flames in order to try and make him immortal.
Eventually, when war broke out between Troia and AchaeaAchilles was asked the following by his mother Thetis: Or do you wish to live the short life of a hero with brilliant achievements in battle?
At the same time as his mother felt pride in his decision, she also felt heartbreakingly sad, because his fate had been predetermined since he was born.
If he lived as a hero, he would have a short life, as if sprinting through it at full speed.
When Achilles was a young child, his mother Thetis returned to her home at the bottom of the sea, due to discord with his father Peleus. Chironwho had raised many heroes, was an old friend of Peleus. Peleus requested Chiron to train his son and Chiron happily accepted the role of mentoring Achilles for nine years.
After having grown up, he participated in the Trojan War as part of the Achaean army and continued achieving many great feats. He was a human who was exceedingly close to the level of the gods. A fast-sprinting hero with an invincible body, his body blessed by all the gods could never received any wounds, but his heel alone was this hero's vital weak point.
The spear his father had given to him pierced through all other heroes. With his chariot led by three steeds, consisting of two divine horses given to him as a gift from the sea god Poseidon and a famous horse he stole while assaulting a certain city, no one could chase after him from behind.
Hector was one of the greatest heroes in the Trojan War, being equal in strength and skill with Achilles, even when his weak point was exposed. Achilles, enraged with his friend's death, challenged Hector in a one-on-one fight. Even after killing Hector, the way Achilles insulted him by dragging his corpse around with his chariot was a foolish and intolerable act.
As a result, he incurred the displeasure of the sun god Apollobut despite being repeatedly warned to restrain himself, Achilles continued slaughtering the Trojan army. So the enraged Apollo aided the Trojan army's bow expert Parisand guided him to shoot Achilles' only weak point—that is, his heel.
Having his heart pierced by arrows one after another afterwards, Achilles sensed his own death, but continued fiercely fighting and using all his strength to kill the soldiers of the Trojan army around him.
Just as predicted, he had a short life, but his legend as a hero was carved into the world. Appearance Edit Rider appears to be a great hero just from his appearance, one who would be admired by any man or woman, young or old.
While his face is pleasing to the eyes, it is not like the knights of old whose courteousness softened the hearts of noble ladies. He has the eyes of a raptor, a strong and firm build, and the lack of any appearance of crudeness. Rider has spiky green hair that stands up except for a single bang that hangs over the left side of his face.
