"This war will rage forever, and so will the Cult."

Polemon the Wise (died 420s BCE) was the Sage of the Cult of Kosmos who led the Silver Vein branch during the Peloponnesian War.


Polemon made Teichos of Herakles in Erymanthos Peaks of Achaia his base. There he observed and guided the war raging through Peloponnese, making sure both Sparta and Athens were equally equipped so as to make the war last.[1] In his warmongering, he crossed the will of the acting Ghost of Kosmos, enough for them to issue a warning to Polemon. The Ghost was firm in their belief that Polemon would never respect them, so instead they demanded his submission.[2]

While working under Polemon, the man known as the Centaur and frequently killing slaver captains and their cargo. For this transgression, Polemon sent him a strongly worded warning to never do it again.[3]

Polemon learned that Klitos, a dockhand working for the Silver Vein-member Machaon, was a 'rodent', and warned his underling of him, telling Machaon to deal with the man swiftly.[4]

Eventually Polemon and his pet lynx were slain by the Spartan misthios Kassandra within the Teichos of Herakles.[5]
