Achilles is without doubt the greatest warrior in the Trojan War. No warrior on either side can battle entire armies without hesitation or loss of ferocity like he can. None-the-less, Achilles also lets his allies down..... he is prideful, angry and obstinate. He sacrifices friends because he allows his own emotions to take precedence over everyone else's. His selfishness was responsible for many deaths.

In contrast, Odysseus is loyal, level headed and supportive. He helps his comrades make decisions rationally and does not put emotion before logic.
