He fell into a depression that followed him for several years. But soon the world of the night called to him. Soon he began to revel in the all the debauchery of the world. He's travelled everywhere but the place of his enslavement. He refuses to darken the meditaranian, and has not been near Greece since his death.Although adept at warfare in his life, in death he became a machine. In battle no one could touch him. Capable of staying in the sun for long periods of time he created his own battle dress. All black, the gauntlets are stained red from the blood of countless enemies, as is the breast plate. More than one head has been smashed against his chest in blood lust. The world has changed much, and yet it has stayed the same. Petty wars are still fought over even pettier rulers. The rabble suffer while the rich get fat. He has seen it again and again and it still amuses him. But now, the years have passed, and he seems to have mellowed..... seems. He wants a challenge.
