The Odyssey

The Odyssey

by Homer

Kassandra

Character Analysis

Sometimes spelled Cassandra. A Trojan princess. She was raped and killed by Little Aias on the altar of Athene, which meant he had to die for his disrespect. (The problem was the location more than the rape and murder, which is odd.)
