Case File: The Trojan War

Police Reports

Wanted for betrayal. Subject (Ares) supported the Trojans, rather than the Greeks, in the Trojan War. Ares originally promised his mother that he would support the Greeks in the Trojan War, but Aphrodite convinced him to switch sides.

Case Status: Dismissed after Ares got what was coming to him. In one battle, Ares was wounded by Diomedes and Athena. He wailed so loudly that it sounded like a whole army screaming.
