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 prophet Teiresias, he encountered
the shade of Achilles. Achilles had killed the Trojan hero Hector,
in single combat and was eventually killed by Hector’s brother
Paris. Paris didn’t actually kill Achilles, it was mainly Apollo. Paris
shot an arrow and Apollo guided it to Achilles’ one weak spot, his
heel. Achilles wouldn’t have even been vulnerable here, but when
his mom, Thetis, dipped him into the river Styx to make him
invulnerable. But Thetis forgot she was holding him by the heel
and missed that spot while dipping him.

Achilles doesn’t have that much relevancy to the Odyssey
but he was in the Trojan War at the very beginning.
I chose Achilles because he was a really good warrior, but
he wasn’t completely invulnerable which means it was
possible to kill him. Though I think he could of lived longer
if wouldn’t of have been for Apollo.
