"The oceans are as wide as the world, but I've yet to find my equal upon them."
―Nestor[src]-[m]

Nestor (died c. 422 BCE), also known as the Formidable, was a Greek admiral and a member of the Order of the Storm branch of the Order of the Ancients.

Biography

In his youth, Nestor marauded the seas of Greece as he willed. However, little by little he grew jaded by it. When he met the Tempest, her talk of the mighty Greek warships and what her Order was going to do sparked Nestor's delight in destruction anew.[1]

When the Tempest made her move to blockade Achaia, Nestor eagerly replied, haunting the waters of the Gulf of Korinth and farther to the west upon whatever Persian trireme he could get.[2] [3] During the blockade, Nestor sunk several ships. On one occasion, after running a fleet into the rocks of Scavenger's Coast, he wrote a letter to his fellow Ancient the Broker informing him of the three ships worth of unspoiled wood for his shipyard. He also warned the Broker about the Eagle Bearer.[4]

However, Nestor's letter was found by the Eagle Bearer–the Spartan misthios Kassandra, which informed her of his whereabouts. Kassandra engaged him in naval combat aboard her own trireme, the Adrestia, and slew Nestor.[5]

Behind the scenes

The name of Nestor (Νέστωρ), a character in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey's DLC Legacy of the First Blade: Shadow Heritage, is derived from the Greek word νέομαι (neomai) "I return" and the agent noun -τωρ (-tōr) "-er". He also shares the name with the legendary King of Pylos and Messenia in Greek mythology.
