Character Description: Briareos Hecatonchires

Briareos Hecatonchries was originally a soldier fighting a non-nuclear war for which almost the whole of the world was devastated. He was also the lover of "the Goddess of War", Deunan Knute, and the two often fought and watched each others backs.

A year before Deunan's arrival at Olympus, Briareos was gravely injured in North Africa... so much so that when he was rescued by ESWAT, over seventy-five percent of his body had to be totally replaced in a cybernetic shell.

Briareos, along with ESWAT, and the Bioroid Hitomi, was instrumental in rescuing Deunan after her platoon was wiped out by mercenaries, and brought her to Olympus. However, Briareos is hiding something. Does it happen to be related to General Uranus' planned coup against the Bioroid? And why rescue Deunan... unless it happens to relate to the secret of Deunan's past.

There is a scene in the movie where Senator Uranus and General Hades confront Deunan and Briareos on the research platform. On his shoulder, as he was being shot, there is an inscription that said: "2096-2122," and underneath said "Gozito Erzo Sum." I don't know what it means, but thought it might be worth mentioning.
