Agamemnon Gossip

Spotted... on Mount Olympus or Asgard. xoxo Gossip Shmoop

Agamemnon is totally proud of all the battleships named after him. (He's got little models of them all over his room.)

In the universe of Dune, Agamemnon is the name of a big crazy cyborg dictator who helps take over the galaxy. He's actually supposed to be a descendant of the original Agamemnon—fancy.

Sometimes the big guy rocks it out to "Agamemnon" by the Violent Femmes.

Agamemnon is still ticked off that they gave his name to a "Trojan" asteroid. (He plans to launch an armada against the astronomers who did it any day.)
