Case File: Achilles vs. Agamemnon

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Achilles) accuses Defendant (Agamemnon) of theft. When Agamemnon, the Greek general, was forced to give up his love slave, Chryseis, he took Achilles' love slave, Briseis, to replace her. Achilles thought this was totally messed up and refused to fight until Agamemnon gave her back.

Case Status: Case pending. Without Achilles, the Greeks started losing the war, so a bunch of Greek generals offered Achilles the girl and all kinds of riches if he would start fighting again. Still, Achilles refused.
