    Summary

    Significant points in Achilles and Patroclus' relationship.

    Patroclus is the forgotten son of King Menoetius, hoping that moving to Phthia would offer him the opportunity to step out from shadows and spread his wings. There he meets the devilishly scandalous Achilles, whose golden wings Patroclus convinced to himself blocked the sun, but when supposed insolence marred with humility, inherent audacity with intrinsic confidence, vanity with insecurity, Achilles more or less opens up a shining light to Patroclus.

    Convinced that the gods won’t understand what he and Patroclus have together, Achilles struggles to protect their relationship from his fate, even if it means twisting the truth and tearing his emotions to shreds. Through time and time again Patroclus pursued him, stubborn on his devotion. Their love lasted from teenage years in Phthia, Mount Pelion with the wise centaur Chiron, Skyros with the demands of a newfound wife, and ten years of the Trojan War.
