Helenus

Character Analysis

Helenus is a Trojan priest and one of King Priam's sons. During the council meeting, he sides with Hector, who argues that Helen should be sent back to the Greeks ASAP to put an end to the war. Troilus calls him out for this and accuses him of being a coward and wimp because he's not a soldier: "You are for dreams and slumbers, brother priest" (2.2.37).
