INTRODUCING

Androkles & Kallistos

Androkles

Born and bred outside the small village of Eupagioin, in the shadows of Mount Erymanthos, from the earliest as a young boy, Androkles exhibited an explosive, powerful, and passionate nature, with his raw energy and impulsiveness often overpowering his better sense. Upon his introduction to the Sacred Band, he displayed a foremost desire be the greatest Thebian warrior ever and believed that his destiny was to one day lead the Sacred Band. He craves the fight; a true warrior, the ultimate gladiator who would make the world submit to his desires.

Kallistos

Born and bred outside the small village of Eupagioin, in the shadows of Mount Erymanthos, from the earliest as a young boy, Androkles exhibited an explosive, powerful, and passionate nature, with his raw energy and impulsiveness often overpowering his better sense. Upon his introduction to the Sacred Band, he displayed a foremost desire be the greatest Thebian warrior ever and believed that his destiny was to one day lead the Sacred Band. He craves the fight; a true warrior, the ultimate gladiator who would make the world submit to his desires.

One of the leaders of The Sacred Band of Thebes, Ophion led by sheer power and the infliction fear in anyone who dared to oppose him.  In Androkles he recognized someone who could ultimately be his match, so while teaching the young boy all that would need to know in order to one day resist him, he real goal was to break him before he could become a threat.

Ophion
Sophos

While Ophion’s peer and partner in leading The Sacred Band of Thebes, Saphos was studied and calculating, preferring to use his brain rather than his brawn. He knew the danger that Ophion could wreak on the success of the Band, or to his own safety, so rather than confrontation, he would use subtle persuasion to steer the Band towards a better course.

Prince Phillip (Teenager)

Prince Phillip, the youngest son of King Amynatas and Eurydice I, was captured in 386 BC, when he was 14 years old, and held hostage in Thebes.  As was the tradition during that time when young royalty were captured, it was expected that they would be treated with respect and the captors were responsible for their education.  During the four years that Phillip was held, he received both military and diplomatic education under the care of Pammenes a Theban general and enthusiastic advocate of the Sacred Band of Thebes, who taught him Theban military theory.
