History: Neoptolemus is the only son of Princess Deidamea, princess of Scyros. Her father, Lycomedes, is king
of that island on the Aegean sea. It's been whispered that perhaps Pyrrhus is not in fact the father of his wife's

Ares, the God of War, he's a warrior to be in fear and
awe of, because there is no line he will not cross.
He's not even above using someone else's name in
order to get things done. He's not in it for the glory or
the fame, but the destruction and maiming that is the
direct result of what he does. And what he does, he
He has no respect for anyone or anything else other
than himself, often times he is belligerent and rude,
but there is not a one out there that does not want
him on their side, as opposed to fighting against him.
