Orestes - not the fastest athlete on the track?

Postby Dreamless on Mon Apr 02, 2001 2:33 am

Dude, the temptation is always there. I've been able to resist successfully so far, but...giant robot battle!<P>As for Orestes: he's heading homeish. It's one of the things that always bothered me: who <i>is</i> taking care of things at home in his absence? Since he splits pretty much right after the murder, pursued by furies.<P>Although: if Electra had a gundam... <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>mike

Where does Orestes actually think he's going? I mean, the Furies are no longer chasing him, and as far as the myths go, the only person from the royal family left alive back home is Electra. I can't really see her picking up ruling where Clytaemnestra left off...
Then again, either Orestes has a great line in irony, or he's not that bright... <P>Personally,I reckon he's not the fastest athlete on the track.

Orestes is going home? Didn't he go to Asia Minor for a while and some tribe drives him crazy? I'm not making this up, I'm just too lazy to verify my suspicions right now. <P>Mike I can deal with a Gundam, but please no magical Penelopes in Parthenos. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"><p>[This message has been edited by MizunoL (edited 04-02-2001).]

Ulysses is the brains of this operation. Always is.<P>And with Ares' look, I think we're seeing an anime influence seeping in. It's fine, as long as Hephestus doesn't go and build Penelope a Gundam <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>I don't think she's the heero Yui type anyway.

I remember something like that, too. Doesn't it involve his sister, if she'd been spirited away by Artemis instead of being sacrificed?<P>'Cuz he also marries Menelaus's daughter (Hermione?) and either before or after kills Neoptolemus over her, or maybe over some impiety of Neoptolemus's?<P>So now'd be after the first (I guess, if it's not optional enough) and before the second.<P>mike
