Case File: Hector vs. Paris

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Hector) accuses Defendant (Paris) of cowardice. Hector got really mad when he felt like his brother, Paris, was hanging back during battle. The way Hector figured it, Paris caused the whole Trojan War by stealing Helen away from Menelaus, so Paris ought to be the one out there on the front lines.

Case Status: Case pending. To prove his brother wrong, Paris agreed to fight Menelaus in single combat. However, Aphrodite intervened and scooped Paris off the battlefield before a victor could be determined.
