All about Achilles and The Trojan War
Tyrone's interview with Achilles
Tyrone gets an exclusive interview with the great hero Achilles.
Tyrone: How are you Achilles?
Achilles: Good I take it you want to ask me some questions.
Tyrone: Yes my first question is why did you fight on the Greeks side?
Achilles: I was born a Greek, and I was destined to fight with them.
Tyrone: Were you in the wooden horse?
Achilles: Yes, it was quite tight in there
Tyrone: Are you only mortal in your heel?
Achilles: Yes, when I was a baby, my mom put me in the river styx holding me by the heel, she forgot to put my heel in too.
Tyrone: Would you call Hector your biggest enemy?
Achilles: Yeah, me and him had many fights together but i’m definetly the better hero.
Tyrone: What do you think of the Achilles Tendon being named after you.
Achilles: Its one of those things where it an honor, but you prefer to be honored for something else.
Tyrone: Why did you choose to drag Hector's dead body around on a chariot?
Achilles: Hector was a special warrior so I felt he needed a special ceremony after his death and it also showed my men that Hector was dead. It was like a celebration.
Tyrone: How happy are you knowing that your son Neoptolemus eventually received your armor?
Achilles: Its amazing when I died I always wanted him to have it and I'm so happy. Odysseus realized how special it would be if Neoptolemus were to fight a war wearing it.
Tyrone: Would you agree that your love life is kind of like Zeus's?
Achilles: I guess, I did have more than 1 wife but it's no where close to how bad Zeus's is.
Tyrone: My last question for you is was it weird posing as a girl for a while?
Achilles: It was a very weird and awkward experience but you got to do what you got to do and I was just listening to what I was told.
