1 Machaon, Myrmidon Doctor-Officer.

Machaon (Μαχάων/ Makháôn in classical Greek). In Greek Mythology, Machaon was son of Asclepius. Machaon was a near-miraculous doctor and surgeon with the gift of mending any wound, no matter how grave it was. Hero of the Trojan War, he commanded 40 ships and took part in many combats. Some sources place him amongst the warriors hidden inside the Trojan horse.

Notes of Thamyris the Aoidos for the S.S.S. Information Service. 'Warrior-Doctor of the Myrmidons, Machaon is a mad genius. He can heal almost any wound and fight as well as the bravest of heroes, but he is eccentric and extravagant to the bone; antisocial, distrustful and with a very, very difficult character'.
