Don't you love war? The smell of blood? The ecstacy of running through your enemy? War! That's the reason for my existence!

Final Reward::
  • Experience: 152,600,000
  • Gold: 42,700,000


[Ares]
The Greek god of brutal wars and soldiers, he thrives on the bloody rush of battle. He is in love with Aphrodite, and so joined her on the Trojan side of the war. Reason or righteousness hold no meaning for him. His agents are hidden among the Trojan soldiers, though things have not gone as he had hoped.

1.Praise Me

Hahaha!
Finally, a real warrior!
I like the look of you.
You're nothing like those foolish Achaeans or Trojans.

2.Honorable Prince

The battlefield is my garden!
The scent of blood is my perfume!
I love war!
I don't care who wins, but I'm helping Troy for now. Aphrodite asked me to give those idiot Achaeans a hard time.
The Trojans were like putty to me, so eager to fall into the throes of madness and bloodlust.
Well, most of them, that is.
That fool Prince [Hector]!
He clings to honor, and won't give in to his beast instincts!
~
War is war.
You must completely defeat and destroy the enemy!
Now, my warrior.
Kill the arrogant Trojan Prince [Hector]!

(You must defeat [Hector] in the [Reversal] battlefield.)
(You can enter [Reversal] through [Medius].)
Mission: Kill [Hector] x1
Hahaha! Yes, yes, that's it!
Well, well. I guess you ended up hurting Troy, but I don't care.
My will is truth on the battlefield!
If you follow my will, you will win the war no matter what!
Reward:
  • Experience: 35,000,000
  • Gold: 10,000,000

3.A Valuable Reward

I really liked it when you followed my order and killed him.
Let me give you a small reward for your efforts.
~
The most valuable reward in war is time to rest.
I'll give you a short break. Come back when you have energy enough to participate in battle.

There you are, my warrior!
I've been waiting! Hahaha!
That was a great show you put on for me earlier! Top-notch stuff!
~
You shall be my greatest follower!
Come on! Praise me again, my warrior!
Shout it out! Great Ares!

A strong warrior praising my name!
I exist for war!
Blood! Slaughter!

That's the reason for my existence!

5.Two Sons

Warrior, I have two loyal sons.
Their names are Phobus and Deimus.
Phobus fills soldiers with a terrible fear of death in my name.
Deimus ensures miserable defeat for my enemies.
We must show our enemies true fear of death and complete defeat!
Those are the virtues of the battlefield.
But I'm not sure that Troy has these virtues lately.
~
My sons lent their power to the Trojan [Crazed Swordsmen].
Those who can't use such power well are useless to me.
My warrior, teach them how one uses such power.

([Crazed Swordsmen] appear in [Heart of Troy], [Saving Helen], [Troy's Last Battle], and [Hidden Power].)
Mission: Kill [Crazed Swordsman] x5
I have no use for Trojan soldiers who can't fight even after I've given them my power!
You made a good example out of them, my warrior. That should keep the survivors on their toes.
Reward:
  • Experience: 20,000,000
  • Gold: 7,000,000
Don't you love war?
The smell of blood?
The ecstacy of running through your enemy?
War!
That's the reason for my existence!

6.I Don't Like It

And yet, I don't hear screams of slaughter and blood ecstacy!
This is no fun at all!
What do Phobus and Deimus think they're doing?
~
My warrior.
Rest.
If my two sons aren't present, there's no use in having you on the battlefield.
Wait until the Troy battlefields are more suitable for the god of war.

7.A Warlike War!

I'm glad you're here, my warrior.
I'm sick of this foolishness. I need your courage on the battlefield!
Something happened in Troy.
Prince Paris was defeated.
Of course, I never cared about his safety!
I never understood why Aphrodite cared so much for that mortal.
I know I have him to thank for this war, but believe me, I'm glad to be rid of that eyesore!
But something else is bothering me.
Those vehicles!
It's... it's un-warlike!
Fighting without death?
Where's the fun in that?
I want to transform Odysseus into a fool! That's teach you mortals to mess with the natural order of things!
But, he's under [Athena]'s protection, so I can't just do whatever I want to him. How frustrating!
Ha... Isn't there anything I can do?
~
Warrior.
Do you know the new weapon that Odysseus made most recently?

(HINT: It is the weapon you must guard in [Saving Helen] and [Troy's Last Battle].)
Mission: Answer [A Warlike War!] Question => Trojan Horse
Yeah, that's the one!
So he hides his soldiers in there and sneaks them past enemy lines, is that it?
That Odysseus is really sly.
I wanted the Trojans to guard against such a thing, but...
Argh! Focusing on defense is not like me at all!
That wooden horse!
We can just tear it apart!
Burn it!
Smash it to little pieces!
Reward:
  • Experience: 950,000
  • Gold: 800,000
Don't you love war?

War!
That's the reason for my existence!

8.Interference

I haven't heard anything from Phobus and Deimus...
And [Athena]'s pesky minion Odysseus keeps getting in my way...
Argh!
[Athena]'s fingerprints are all over this! Odysseus and the Achaeans can't possibly be making all these weapons themselves!
But... but I don't want to face [Athena] in person!
I know how we can put an end to her meddling!
~
Do you know of Vulcanus? In our circle, he goes by the name of Hephaestus. He's also a god, like me.
Enter the number of the correct answer.
1: I know the man, yes.
2: I don't know him, and anyone who does is a loser. Loser.
Mission: Answer [Interference] Question => 1
I could trick him into making weapons only for MY side...
Argh! This isn't like me! War shouldn't be won through trickery!
Reward:
  • Experience: 20,000,000
  • Gold: 800,000
Don't you love war?

9.Fools

Argh! I can't stand it!
[Athena]!
What will it take to satisfy you!?
I've learned that Phobus and Deimus were captured by [Athena]!
What should I do?
I should have fought in the war myself.
I went to check on them and returned with this ridiculous news!
Now I need to gather up the souls of my two foolish sons.
~
Phobus and Deimus' souls were broken into pieces and scattered about in a far away place.
My warrior.
Gather my foolish sons' souls, make the [Soul Crystal of Terror], and bring it to me!

(HINT: [My Info] -> [Skills] -> Quest Crafting.)
(You can get [Phobus' Soul Shard] from the monsters in [Kriemhild's Forest], and [Deimus' Soul Shard] from the ones in [Deserted Hall].)
Mission: Craft [Soul Crystal of Terror] x2
Good.
I'll think about resurrecting these fools after I've vented my frustration on the Trojan battlefields.
Fools!
How easily they fell to [Athena]'s trickery!
Reward:
  • Experience: 20,000,000
  • Gold: 8,500,000
Don't you love war?
The smell of blood?
The ecstacy of running through your enemy?
War!
That's the reason for my existence!

10.Not Like Me

I don't care about the laws of the gods anymore!
I should have joined the war earlier.
It doesn't matter if both sides perish in bloodshed and terror!
I'll wipe them all out!
~
...
My warrior.
Witness in awe the true might of [Ares] with your own two eyes.
Hahaha! Just thinking about it...

11.Betrayed

Damn! You!
How dare you show yourself before me!?
How dare you fool me...
How dare you hurt me...
I've... I've never been beaten before!
You were with [Athena] all along!
~
I won't have you in my presence!
Cretin!
I'll curse you!
Argh, I wish I had a cup of [Strong Nectar] right now...
Mission: Strong Nectar x1
You poison me, and then offer the antidote?
You think you can buy my forgiveness?
Oh... however, this scent is strong and sweet at the same time...
Reward:
  • Experience: 950,000
  • Gold: 800,000
Don't you love war?
The smell of blood?
The ecstacy of running through your enemy?
War!

12.Acceptable Reason

G...ood.
Hm, an offering like this is worthy of a god. I'll give you that much.
I don't mind even if this is one of [Athena]'s tricks.
And you've definitely got guts.
I'll cancel the curse.
To tell the truth, I don't understand why the Trojans are not under my control.
Had they obeyed my orders, you wouldn't have stood a chance.
What happened?
Is it related to the fact that Phobus and Deimus were captured so easily?
There are creatures more evil than me behind Troy?
If they've given Troy that forbidden power...
Damn. This makes me look bad.
I never expected to encounter something more evil than me.
Hey! You're not trying to trick me again, are you?
I need some evidence.
Oh, that's right.
There was this monster going around claiming that Troy's dead heroes would come back to life and curse their enemies.
~
The monster called herself [Dark Alexandra].
She seemed suspicious enough.
Kill her, and I'll look into it.
Come on!

([Dark Alexandra] appears in [Hidden Power].)
(You can enter [Hidden Power] through [Terminus].)
Mission: Kill [Dark Alexandra] x1
What... what is this monster?
Even I was tempted by her sweet words.
How could something like this exist?
A power that pushes me, the god of war, into even greater madness?
Reward:
  • Experience: 50,000,000
  • Gold: 10,000,000
Don't you love war?
The smell of blood?

War!
That's the reason for my existence!

13.Lost Interest

Phobus and Deimus wouldn't have had a chance...
I thought all this was the bloodlust I inspired, but it had nothing to do with me...
How boring.
What's the point of war if I have no power over it?
~
Hmph! I couldn't give a damn about this war anymore.
Tell her I'm out of here.
I won't even look at Troy from now on!
