Patroclus, son of Menoetius from the lineage of the Argonauts, was a
brave and powerful warrior, comrade and best friend of Achilles, also
trained by the centaur Chiron. According to Homer's Iliad, Patroclus
also took part in the Siege of Troy, falling in combat while posing as
Patroclus is Achilles' best friend, and his protector
and bodyguard. In the Special Situations Section, he acts as the
Myrmidon leader's security relay. Achilles' impetuosity and taste for
indiscriminate action regularly saw him dive into fights where it was
difficult to extract him unharmed. ALEPH, wanting to protect its most
ambitious creation without compromising his destructive capacity,
decided to give him a bodyguard, somebody able to let him continue
fighting but keep him alive no matter how deadly the environment. The
obvious choice was to build a Recreation of his comrade from the Iliad.
Anticipating the difficulty of this task, an advanced Boddhishatva Lhost
model was given to the Project: "Sidekick" and he was trained in a wide
range of assault and close combat techniques. Patroclus is a splendid
fighter, with the fastest fists in the Myrmidons, but also an excellent
marksman for whom a ranged weapon is akin to a hunting licence drawn up
by the goddess of Vengeance. Brave and determined, Patroclus will do
anything to save the day and that makes him an asset to the Section. He
stands out for his extraordinary ability to unbalance an enemy by
exploiting the features of his holographic device. Patroclus is able to
operate in any tactical offensive position, and capable of taking apart
any enemy strategy by always aiming for its heart and looking for
victory with every strike and move.
