Complicated is a good word for Achilles. After all, he was a prideful warrior who wanted to be known forever. To have his name spoken for thousands of years to come. But having so many others die trusting that he would win the war for him made him bitter and guilt-ridden. However, he could never truly become a man of peace. War was in his blood. But as time progressed and he kept fighting, he would temper his warrior nature with compassion. Some immortal beings see mortals as unworthy. Achilles is just the opposite. He watches humans live lives full of passion and ambition while only living for a handful of decades, and he envies them their ability to live that way. For a time, he tried to re-awaken the brutal warrior's nature he had when he was younger, and fought alongside the Vikings only because they were also Pagans. In the end, he settled down and watched the blossoming of the Chivalric orders. By now, he has learned that if he is -not- defending those he identifies with, that something is missing from his life and from his heart. He fights with compassion and mercy, and tries to avoid killing his opponents because they are deserving of some dignity, even if they are criminals. He has learned patience over the centuries, and does his best to restrain his impulsiveness, but he is not always successful. In the end, he is a defender, and has adopted Metropolis and the United States as his home.

Powers

IMMORTALITY - Achilles is not truly Invulnerable. All of those stories got it wrong. He just cannot die. Sure, he is more resistant to injury than normal humans, and can withstand small arms fire with just the barest of bruising. Sharp enough blades cut his flesh, and arrows can pierce it at close range. The truth is just that it will not kill him, and he heals at ridiculous speeds. He is a demigod who was augmented with Ambrosia -and- the River Styx.

While he can be injured, he also possesses a supernatural ability to keep functioning even if he should not be. He can push on no matter what, his will overriding his body while the body heals to keep up. This means that he cannot age. He cannot get sick. He can be poisoned.... briefly. He will always recover.

Skills

COMBAT - When you are a 3200 year old warrior who has fought off and on for all that time, you have learned some impressive fighting techniques. Achilles could be said to be a master of almost all martial arts. Boxing, Wrestling. Samurai Swords. Fencing. Spear. Tae Kwon Do. He's likely studied it if it has been taught as a fighting style. And he has had the time and potential to master it. While he cannot keep up with well trained fighters who also have superhuman strength, stamina, or speed... he can overcome almost anyone who has only had a single lifetime to study. That is not to say that he cannot be surprised. Lady Shiva, Shang Chi, Batman, Captain America. Odds are people of that skill would be able to beat him. But it would not be a guarantee.

FARMING - Okay, he learned one or two things. Enough to know he should not be a farmer.

FINANCE - Believe it or not, Achilles has learned how to invest and make his money work for him. He has wealth amassed from millennia of collecting ancient trinkets and money. He has made quite a fortune and still manages it himself.

FIREARMS - In the early part of the 20th century, Achilles found himself at war once more. He learned to use firearms then and fell in love with them. These days, there is not a firearm that he is not an expert with. He could qualify for a Marine Sniper, or could be called a pistolero, or any number of things. He is a crack shot in any case.

HISTORY - When you live through most of history, you remember a lot of it. Achilles could rewrite many history texts with the knowledge he has amassed.

STYLE - Hey, Achilles knows how to dress to impress. Again, he has had time to watch styles come and go, and has learned to adapt.

TACTICS - Achilles has spent so much time on battlefields, as a grunt and a commander that he has quite a grasp of tactics and strategy. There are few that could match him in that regard. At least in his own mind.

Resources

HEPHAESTUS GEAR - Achilles's original armor, spear, shield, and sword were all crafted by the god of the forge. While they are not specifically enchanted with any special powers, they are forged from Celestial Bronze and are enchanted to restore themselves in time, even if broken. Also, they seem to subtly change as time goes by, to reflect the world around them. So in Troy, they were ancient looking. In the modern day they look more current. * Armor: The armor can stand up to quite a beating. It can take weaposn fire from most modern firearms with little to no effect. Explosives would definitely get through it. * Shield: While it can't be thrown and bounced around, the Celestial Bronze shield can absorb the impact of many powerful attacks. Artillery could be deflected, briefly. Super strong attacks might dent it. * Spear: Unlike most spears, this one has a haft -and- head made of metal. It can pierce many things, but that is based on the strength of the wielder more than just the toughness of the tip. It's major feature is the ability to grow from six feet long to as long as twelve feet on command. * Sword: Technically called a Xiphos, this was one of the earliest of that particular model of sword. Two and a half feet long, it was not made for fencing so much as close in work. Double edged and -very- sharp, there is no further enchantment upon it.

MYRMIDON SECURITY - Achilles has created this security company that specializes in training officers to hire out to various high profile clients as personal bodyguards. They are all well trained soldiers who have a protector mentality. This is where his -official- income comes from.

WEAPONS - Come on. 3200 years of fighting? Achilles has weapons of all types from all eras in storage -somewhere-. You name it and he can probably dig it out from a locker.

Weaknesses

Click to expand.

ARROGANCE - Sure, he has compassion and mercy, but Achilles is immortal and he knows it. He has that arrogance one only gets when they know they are superior. It can (and will) be used against him many times.

NOT THE HEEL - So everyone thinks his heel was his weak point. That was something of a joke he was amused by for many centuries. In reality, his weakness would be poisoning from the waters of the River Styx. A weapon dipped in that water and stabbed into him would be lethal. Or at the very least, incapacitating and -potentially- lethal.
