Hoplite Titans are centaur-like warriors possessing the body and legs of a lion. These armored warriors, though relatively weak while alone, gain power when working together as an army. They are closely related to the lion-like gladiator Titan, Bellona.

History

The Hoplite Titan is like the centaur of Greek mythology, except it has a lion's body instead of that of a horse. Ancient Greek hoplite soldiers used swords, shields, and spears to defeat their enemies. Like this Titan, Greek hoplites grouped together in battle so that their shields could overlap and thus create a stronger defense. Around the same era, an army of Hoplite Titans had been used by Jason, who led the Argonauts. Allegedly, he was able to summon this army with his dragon's teeth.

In modern times, Jason's logbook was used to locate the sunken ship, the Argo, off the coast of Sutos Island. There, Zhalia Moon uncovered several Hoplite Amulets protected by a magical puzzle. Upon returning to find Lok Lambert and Sophie Casterwill fighting against a coalition of Suits and Sutos citizens, Zhalia gave both of her teammates a Hoplite Amulet so that they could stand their ground, and later on the team used these Titans for their easy summoning and for their great teamwork powers.

Abilities

Though relatively weak Titans on their own with low offensive and defensive powers, Hoplites gain strength as they work together. They also have great skill with a sword and are good defensive titans. One Hoplite alone was able to hand for moments a Nightlurker titan, and one Hoplite is a soldier, two is an army. Hoplite titans are also quite fast on their feet. These titans have claws that are great for gripping the ground.

Design History

Hoplites were the standard soldier in ancient Greece. They carried swords, spears, and shields. They were trained to fight closely as a team with each soldier’s shield helping protect the man next to him. That is why the Hoplite Titans are stronger in groups. The original idea for the Hoplite Titan was a man in Greek armor. We already had many armored human Titans, so we decided to add animal features to Hoplite. The ancient Greeks have several myths about powerful lions, so we gave Hoplite the body of a lion and changed his helmet to look like a lion’s mane. Huntik.com

Trivia
