Your Field Guide to Spotting Odysseus (Ulysses)

Odysseus might be pretty hard to spot if he doesn't want you to find him. His reputation for being one of the craftiest heroes is well-earned. We highly recommend you go down to Elysium, the city of the blessed dead, and have a chat with him. He's one of the most famous Greek heroes of all time, and he definitely has stories to tell. You better watch out, though, that silver-tongued devil can charm a snake out of its skin.
