- Ajax is named after Ajax the Great of Greek mythology. He is the son of King Telamon and Periboea and fought in the Great Trojan War. When Ajax's commander, Achilles is killed in battle, he and Odysseus fight over his armor. Ajax is bested in combat, but is unable to accept defeat and slaughters many of his comrades. Ashamed of his deed, he kills himself with his own sword.
