Odysseus, king of Ithaca, is one of the heros in the Trojan war.
As replacement for the Trojan War, I go for Ezar's War. The war between Kanday and Rethem (682-697), which ended with victory for Kanday. The war began when the Order of the Copper Hook invaded Kanday without warning or provocation.
The Sea Journey
It took Odysseus ten years to reach Ithaca after the ten-year Trojan War. In his absence, it is believed he has died.
After Ezar's War, our knight went on a sea voyage after the Crimson Dancer and Kukshin, both in exile in Orbaal/Ivinia. The mission, sanctioned by the crown, is avenge, and to recover Eriel’s crown that vanished after Eriels assasination.
Odysseus spent seven years in captivity of Calypso who fell deeply in love with him, even though he consistently spurned her advances.
As for potential candidates that could replace Calypso I would go for an important female within one of the female orders of the church of Agrik.
- Order of the Eight Demons,
Order of Kukshin or
Order of the Crimson Dancer
On Ithaca a crowd of boisterous young men aim to persuade Odysseus wife Penelope to marry one of them, all the while reveling in Odysseus' palace and eating up his wealth.
In the Oddesey, Odysseus son Telemachus is urged to search for news of his father.
As for the knights son he could either be
- Legal, born before captivity
Bastard, born during the captivity
