Background

“Thrasymedes is our point man. He is always ahead of us, scouring the terrain and guarding us from unwelcome surprises. His courage is unquestionable, but sometimes I wonder whether the reason why he pushes onward and leaves us behind is that he just cannot stomach us...”

Thamyris the Aoidos - Notes for the SSS Information Service

Thrasymedes wistfully remembers the Steel Phalanx in the days before Achilles, when he fought in the regular forces of the Assault Subsection. Despite the fury and bloodshed, there was a certain strategy, a certain balance in the way the Corps conducted itself back then. But everything changed with the arrival of the blond titan. Achilles' extraordinary tacti- cal capabilities let him see opportunity where others see only disaster. However, his notorious wrath and ruthlessness also make him push the units under his command too far, often putting them in "all or nothing" positions. To alleviate the situation and minimize the risk, Thrasymedes specialized in advance and incursion actions, in which he draws hostile fire to gauge enemy forces and provide data to assess the tactical scenario with further precision.

His bravery and extraordinary abilities caught the eye of Achilles himself, who recruited Thrasymedes for his Homeridae, Ironically, Thrasymedes wound up in the group of champions that was a symbol for what he most detested: unbridled heroism. The effectiveness of the team, on the other hand, was beyond question, and his skills were a perfect match for it. He felt he could make a difference there.

What makes Thrasymedes a hero is that he is all about victory, and he will do anything for it. And "anything" is not an overstatement. It is believed that the explosive projectile that injured Achilles and halted his suicidal charge across the plains of Strackenz was fired by none other than Thrasymedes, who was worried that the hasty assault would weaken the flank threatened by Morat Vanguard Infantry. This theory has never been proven, however, and if Achilles shares it he doesn't seem to hold any resentment. The ability to act independently and unilaterally is a valued trait among those who must work far from friendly lines. Nevertheless, this type of behavior is unnerving, and it seems likely that ALEPH would take steps to ensure Thrasymedes is under close control and scrutiny, perhaps as part of Atalanta’s secret assignments.
