Having killed Patroclus, Hector is desperate to catch the immortal horses, who have bolted
You are MENELAUS. As Hector goes in pursuit of Achilles' horses, Euphorbus is cheekily claiming full credit for killing Patroclus: he foolishly challenges you to a fight, and you spear him through the neck. Meanwhile, Apollo tells Hector to forget about the horses - you run when you see him charging towards you. But you find Ajax, and return to face him. Now it's Hector's turn to run.
