Ajax is a Homeric and playable character featured in Total War Saga: Troy. He is an Epic Defender Hero, part of the Achaean culture group. His campaign is only playable after obtaining the Ajax & Diomedes DLC.


Ajax of Salamis is the shield that protects the Achaean host. A man of epic proportions, he’s known for his unsurpassed strength and is rumoured to be descended from the mythic giants. His unit roster relies on slow but very heavily equipped defensive infantry to hold the line, while his powerful missile units take advantage of protected positions. Play as Ajax and follow his path from being a warrior of Salamis to becoming Ajax the Great.
