Huginn: He was proud of his Achaians. He was proud of being their king, their first among equals. He rubbed their faces in it. And I was proud of Odysseus, who mocked him quietly and held fast to his intellectual integrity.

Muninn: Though not his spiritual integrity. And Agamemnon was certainly not the most competent, or the least cruel.

H: It is fascinating to watch how leadership develops. Agamemnon was leader by default. The rest were... unacceptable.

M: And there were so many kings. Poor, petty kinglets.

H: I would have voted for Odysseus myself. They would have won the war earlier.

M: It was Aeneas who had the last laugh though.
