Achilles the warrior
Fearless, ruthless and easily enraged, Achilles was the best fighter in all of Greece. The perfect warrior, raised by a centaur, he had a well rounded education focusing on the art of war. At the age of 15 Achilles entered the Trojan war. Quickly becoming a war hero, he led the Greek army to countless victories. Achilles even hunted down the greatest Trojan warrior, Hector, and slayed him in battle creating an unstable army in Troy and giving the Greeks an opportunity to win the war. Achilles has no trouble taking down the greatest of fighters, but he has never faced you. How will you fair against Achilles?

Work swiftly, but focus on form, for a true victory is one that earns a star.
As a child Achilles mother dipped him into the river of Styx--a river that connects the Earth with the underworld--in order to make him eternal. Achilles mother made one fatal flaw, she held him by his ankle as she dipped him into the water. This left him with one weak point, the Achilles heel. Just like every God workout you face, Achilles is beatable, you just need to know where to hit him.
