Deimos, born Alexios, was one of the two main antagonists (alongside Aspasia) of the 2018 action role-playing video game Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, the eleventh major installment in the Assassin's Creed series.
He was a member of the Cult of Kosmos, a proto-Templar organization based in Ancient Greece. The grandson of King Leonidas of Sparta, he was also the younger half-brother of Kassandra, who became an infamous mercenary.
Separated from his family as an infant during a plot orchestrated by the Cult of Kosmos, Alexios was taken in by the Cult because of his connection with the First Civilization. He was shaped to become a weapon to be used by the Cult, henceforth known by the name Deimos.
Eventually, his allegiance to the Cult of Kosmos put him at odds with his sister, who was attempting to dismantle the Cult's influence across Greece, in the midst of the Peloponnesian War, and to reunite their family.
He was voiced by Michael Antonakos, and his non-canon younger self was voiced by Leonidas Castrounis.
Personality and traits
As Deimos, Alexios possessed a messiah complex, believing himself to be a Demigod, due to his First Civilization bloodline, who would bring order to the Greek world. Due to his harsh upbringing by the Cult of Kosmos, Deimos displayed almost no empathy for anyone and a strong lust for violence and warfare. His nature was extremely intimidating, to the point where even the Cult of Kosmos feared his wrath.
However, beneath his exterior was an emotionally broken individual who finally snapped out of the Cult's brainwashing when Kassandra handed him her Spear as a reminder of their shared bloodline to King Leonidas. It was after this gesture, that he broke down into tears for all the violence he had committed and was happy to be reunited with his family once again.
Equipment and skills
Thanks in part to his bloodline, and the Isu Sword of Damokles he possessed, Deimos displayed powerful feats in combat. He is able to thrust his sword into the ground to release blasts of energy and can even project beams of energy from the tip of his sword. His combat prowess was so vast, that was even able to brutally massacre Brasidas, a highly skilled and experienced Spartan warrior within a few seconds as well as go toe-to-toe with Kassandra and her Spear of Leonidas. He also displays nearly superhuman strength, speed, stamina and endurance in combat.
