―Pallas the Silencer[src]

Pallas the Silencer (died 420s BCE) was a Spartan champion and a member of the Heroes of the Cult branch of the Cult of Kosmos during the Peloponnesian War.

Biography

Expressing his lust for carnage, Pallas gained the epithet 'The Silencer' as a joke, for wherever he went, cries and wails and pain and terror and death followed.[1]

When the Spartan forces Pallas was marching with fought on their way to Achaia, an unnamed soldier and a member of the Cult of Kosmos deserted. They sold a tattered Spartan flag to a blacksmith in Korinth, leaving a note within its folds. In the note the defector renounced Kosmos, terrified of Pallas, the Spartans' 'hero', and his desire to fight only to cause pain. The defector also begged anyone reading the note to stop Pallas, for the defector himself couldn't.[1]

The Spartan misthios Kassandra bought the flag off the blacksmith, and found the note. With its help, she discovered Pallas as a member of the Cult of Kosmos, and where he would be. To kill him, she fought with the Athenians at the Battle of Achaia.[1]

Trivia

  • The name Pallas has been given two different etymologies, depending on gender: one claims it's a feminine name derived from the Greek word παλλακή (pallakḗ), meaning broadly 'young girl, maiden', and the other claiming that it's a masculine name derived from the Greek word παλλω (pallo), which means 'to wield, to sway'.
    • 'Pallas' is one of the many epithets of the goddess Athena.
