Influenced from the sword Achilles used in the movie “Troy”. Achilles was the son of the mortal Peleus and Nereid Thetis. He was the mightiest of the Greeks who fought in the Trojan War, and was the hero of Homer’s Iliad. Achilles was invulnerable in all of his body except for his heel. His heel was vulnerable & died due to a poisoned arrow shot into his heel, the “Achilles’ heel”.
