You are ASTEROPAEUS. You emerge from the water to confront Achilles. You respond bravely to his insults, and attack him. You have a neat trick - you can throw two spears at once (you're ambidextrous!). One of them actually hits Achilles, and grazes his elbow. His spear misses you, but that does not stop him killing you with his sword. He leaves you lying in a pool for the eels and fish to nibble your kidneys and devour your fat. Achilles continues to run amok.
