Iris is sent to fetch Achilles' mother
You are THETIS. You've been summoned to Olympus, and told bluntly that the gods are fed up with Achilles. You are the one who must tell him to give up Hector's body. You find him alone and depressed. He's lost interest in food, sleep and even sex. You relay Zeus' order. He doesn't object. If they bring the ransom they can take the body.
