Penthesilea was one of the most badass Amazons... Until she encountered Achilles. This story is not kind to he of the weak ankle.

CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.
