Synopsis: Fourteen hundred years BCE, a tormented soul walked the earth that was neither man nor god. Hercules was the powerful son of the god king Zeus, for this he received nothing but suffering his entire life. After twelve arduous labours and the loss of his family, this dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods finding his only solace in bloody battle. Over the years he warmed to the company of six similar souls, their only bond being their love of fighting and presence of death. These men and women never question where they go to fight or why or whom, just how much they will be paid. Now the King of Thrace has hired these mercenaries to train his men to become the greatest army of all time. It is time for this bunch of lost souls to finally have their eyes opened to how far they have fallen when they must train an army to become as ruthless and blood thirsty as their reputation has become.

- I tell of Hercules' Twelve Labors,

like the Nemean Lion,

the Apples of the Hesperides,

the Belt of Hippolyta with its buxom

naked Amazons and exciting bondage.

- I immortalize him...

- He talks, while the rest of us fight.

It is a wonder you share the

same blood as Hercules.

Have fun.

- Ladies.

- Oh...

- What do you want with Hercules?

- My words are for him, not you.

Atalanta, it's all right.

- You certainly are a hard man to find.

- Maybe I don't want anyone to find me.

I'm not just anyone. My name is

Ergenia, daughter to Lord Cotys.

Your father is most fortunate

to have such a beautiful heir.

My father is most unfortunate.

He battles a warlord, Rhesus.

Our land is torn by civil war. Every day,

villages are destroyed, crops ruined,

- innocents slaughtered.

- We all have problems.

Well, perhaps I can convince you

to make our problems your own.

Unfortunately, My Lady, Hercules is fully

committed till the Feast of Dionysus.

We could, however, advance you to

the front of the line, for the right price.

Hmm. I thought heroes

fight for glory.

But mercenaries fight for gold.

- Lord Cotys is a rich man.

- I like him already.

If you agree to aid him,

he will pay your weight in gold.

Eat up.

"A lion and crow in

strange alliance."

Told you.

Where are we going?

It is good to see you safe, My Lady.

This war claims more victims every day.

We were concerned, My Lady.

Thank you, General Sitacles.

I was well protected.


The mighty Hercules. An honor.

Though not quite as big

an honor as I expected.

General, go tell my

father Hercules is here.

Uncle? Hera. Impressive.

It's meant to be. It took five years and

a thousand men to build her temple.

Hera is the patron goddess of Thrace.

Everyone knows the legend,

how Hera seeks to destroy Hercules.
