Dolon is the fall guy who volunteers

You are DOLON. You too have a fancy taste in headwear - for you it's a ferret-skin cap. As you creep through the darkness towards the Greek camp, you are jumped on by Odysseus and Diomedes.

They interrogate you brutally, and, in terror for your life, you spill all: Hector's battle-plan, location of sentries, troop dispositions of the Trojans and the allies. You gratuitously volunteer information about a Trojan ally who has just arrived. You go into details about his gold armour and amazing white horses.
