Hektor is a playable character in Warriors: Legends of Troy. The son of the Trojan king and Paris's older brother, he is the commander of the Trojan army. Humble, honest, yet also possessing spectacular bravery, he earns the admiration of ally and foe alike.
Role in GameEdit
Hektor is the greatest of Priam's sons and commander of the Trojan army. He is first seen rescuing civilians, ordering them to seek shelter within Troy's gates. He eventually defeats Patroklos and forces the Greeks to retreat.
After Achilles withdraws from the war front, Hektor becomes Troy's champion. His leadership and character raises Trojan morale. He defeats Ajax during one of their encounters and successfully leads the men to push the Greek forces further away from Troy, until they are across the river of Skamandros. With the tides of battle turning to their favor, Hektor seeks to force the dispirited Greeks back home by invading their main camp.
As Hektor charges within the camp's walls, Poseidon forbids the prince from entering by sending the Cyclops to fight him. The god warns the prince that he is fighting against Troy's predestined fall. Hektor, however, is determined to change this fate as he defeats the giant beast.
Trojan morale remains high until news of Achilles' supposed return sparks renewed vigor from the Greeks. Hektor personally confronts the champion, seeking to avenge the death of his brother, Troilos. During the duel, Apollo intervenes and Hektor uses the opportunity to kill his opponent. Shocked to learn that he did not kill Achilles, Hektor instead takes Achilles' armor as spoils of war.
While preparing for the next battle, his wife is overcome with anxiety and pleads for him to not go. Hektor, feeling that death is inevitable, tells her that his mind is set to fight. He leaves to face an embittered Achilles. Before their fight, Hektor asks the Greek warrior to promise that the winner bring the loser's body back to his people. However, Achilles claims he will make no promises and, after killing Hektor, brutally mutilates his corpse. All of Troy mourns Hektor's death.
- "Is it wrong for us to protect Paris? His acts are shameful, but he is a prince of Troy. Our brother."
- "You will die here Achilles, in a foreign land, away from your loved ones like a dog in the desert."

Hektor is the balanced character for the Trojans. In many ways, he mirrors Achilles' traits of being a beginner friendly character with good range and priority. His animations differ from his Greek counterpart to be a little quicker for the Finishers with improved recovery time for his normal attacks. Hektor's attacks are stationary compared to Achilles' attacks, making it easier to stay locked on a single target. It also hampers his range slightly so be weary when fighting against spear wielding opponents.
- During the Koei-Tecmo company visit in the Weekly Toro Station's broadcast, Toro and Kuro meet Hektor while wandering through the higher floors of the company building. For the sake of easy recognition of his strength and character, the program refers to him as "Troy's Guan Yu", a character who appeared earlier during the program. A scared Kuro initially mistakes Hektor as a Spartan who leads 300 men to glory, but the kitty host is soon corrected by the sub notes found within the program.
