Aeneas is a playable character in Warriors: Legends of Troy. He is the son of the Dardanian prince, Anchises, one of Troy's neighboring allies. Due to his family's ties to the Trojan king, Priam, he is a steadfast believer for the Trojan cause. Though young and seemingly inexperienced, Aeneas is a crafty, quick-witted warrior on the field. He tries to stifle arrogance with abiding confidence, seeking to remain broadminded if possible.
Role in GameEdit
Throughout most of the story, Aeneas' role is relatively minor. He first appears defending the city of Lyrnessos from the Greeks. He is defeated by Achilles, and Aeneas is forced to withdraw while the Greeks take his city.
As the war wages on, Priam sends Aeneas to find more allies for the Trojans. The young king finds Queen Penthesilea and easily convinces her to lead her Amazons and aid Troy. Learning of her desire to die in battle, Aeneas takes pity on her. He tells her to seek a cleansing from Priam and accompanies them to the temple of Apollo and Artemis for the ritual.
After the Trojans mourn Prince Hektor's death, Aeneas joins Penthesilea as she leads her Amazons to battle. Aeneas tries to dissuade her from challenging Achilles, stating that her sister's death is not her fault. His consolation is appreciated yet the Amazon Queen ultimately accepts her end in battle.
When Troy is on the verge of ruin, Aeneas hurries to Priam's palace and finds Paris. The cursed prophetess, Kassandra, appears and proclaims that Aeneas is destined to create a new empire that will be greater than Greece and Troy combined. She warns him that the fallen walls will leave him to safety. Ignoring her words, Paris forces Aeneas to depart from Troy and to save himself and his family. Aeneas promptly rescues his loved ones and other survivors.
Once this task is finished, Agamemnon brandishes the heads of Priam and Paris and proclaims that he will conquer all of the cities in the land. Disgusted by the king's dastardly act, Aeneas defeats him and escapes capture from the Greek army as the walls of Troy collapse. Remembering Kassandra's final prophecy, Aeneas climbs the debris and escapes. He then leads the survivors to sail away from the smoking ruins of Troy.

At a glance, Aeneas appears to control like Hektor and is the Trojan counterpart of Patroklos. However, his movements are rigid when compared to either character due to Aeneas's slackened agility. Since his lowered speed affects his every movement, including his evade, it might be in the player's best interest to carefully judge each of Aeneas's strikes appropriately. He may be resilient, but he isn't as hardy as Penthesilea or Ajax to fully compensate for mistakes.
On the other hand, his circular slashes and shield swings provide a strong defense for him against crowds. Additionally, his shield's size ensures a wider range for his stunning attacks than other characters. His multi-hitting attacks are his distinguishing features over other sword wielding characters and are exceptionally useful when properly timed in duels. If used with care, Aeneas can repeatedly break through an opponent's guard without needing to rely on Parries.
In the Illiad, Aeneas was the son of Aphrodite, goddess of love. Although his role was minor in the war, his real adventure started when the Greeks sacked Troy. As Poseidon told Achilles, Aeneas was destined to rule the Trojans and a new kingdom. The kingdom Poseidon spoke of would later be called the Roman Empire. Aeneas whilest he was in the Underworld to see his father's shade, saw visions of the glory of Rome. The triumph of Scipio in the Punic Wars, and even the glorious Julius Caesar on his return from Egypt. This caused Aeneas to go further into Italy after leaving the Underworld and back to Cumae. Then he married Lavina, Daughter of King Latinus and thus founded the City of Rome.
