General Edit

Strategy Edit

Like all Greek heroes, Theseus is strong against Myth Units and can hold his own against human soldiers as well. He is the first available Hero for Poseidon so is crucial in fending off Myth Units early on, and for bagging early relics.

Mythology Edit

Age -- 32

Homeland -- Athens

Occupation -- king

The parentage of Theseus is confused. He was thought to be either an illegitimate son of Aegeus, a king of Athens, or a son of Poseidon. Raised by his mother, he faced many adversaries and quests while attempting to return to Athens to be reunited with his father. He was then selected to be part of a group of young men and women to be sacrificed to the Minotaur on Crete, as part of the compensation for a long war. On Crete, Ariadne fell in love with Theseus and helped him defeat the Minotaur within the labyrinth. He returned to Athens but failed to signal his success to his father correctly, and Aegeus drowned himself in despair. The sea thereafter took its name from Theseus's father, the Aegean Sea. Theseus foiled an assassination attempt and became king, but lost popularity late in life and was exiled.
