Paris, son of Priam and favourite of the goddess Aphrodite, is remembered for instigating the Trojan War by stealing beautiful Helen away from the Spartan king Menelaus and marrying her himself.
Despite this act of romantic hubris, the prince, much like his elder brother Hector, was a skilled warrior and clever military commander who was willing to sacrifice his life in service to his people. His new wife accompanied him wherever he went, supporting the efforts of her beloved husband at every opportunity.
Paris, like much of the Trojan nobility, learned to use a bow and lead his men from early childhood. On the battlefield he preferred to keep his distance, firing deadly arrows from afar. According to Paris brought down Achilles by mortally wounding him in the heel – the warrior’s only area of vulnerability.
Like Hector, Paris is a prince of Troy – one who was lost as a child and returned to regain his heritage later.
Paris competes for the succession of the Trojan throne as part of the “Priam’s heir” faction mechanic shared between the two princes. Both Paris and Hector need to fulfil tasks for Priam and accomplish deeds that gain his approval, which ultimately leads to being chosen as heir to Troy and confederating the realm of the other brother.
“Helen my love” is a mechanic unique to Paris. When Helen is moved from location to location for lavish fiests or other festivities this affects the populace in the region. But Helen must stay close to Paris so they can both be happy, as their moods affect the whole faction and the army led by Paris.
Paris, the prodigal son of king Priam, has just returned from the kingdom of Sparta, bringing Helen, the wife of King Menelaus, as his own god-given wife.
The prince rules over the Troad from a well-built citadel, where beautiful Helen can stare out over the endless sea, while in the east Hector guards Troy and to the north kin and potential allies hold sway. Chief among them is Aeneas, who holds the Hellespont, and the god-touched prince Troilos, who protects the coast.
But from the south an Aeolian king has secured a foothold on Trojan soil and awaits Achaean reinforcements. This dangerous invader ravages the land from his base on Lesbos and must be dealt with first, before the storm of Achaean vengeance reaches the gates of Troy.
A favorite of the goddess Aphrodite, Paris is the antithesis of his brother and is for players who prefer to engage enemies from afar and defeat them through ranged superiority.
