- "There is no warrior more dangerous than one seeking to regain his honor! Meet the Hoplite! Captured alive after the death of his clan, he will stop at nothing remedy his disgrace!"
- ―The Cyrene Arena owner describing The Hoplite.[src]
- The term hoplite is used to describe citizen-soldiers of Ancient Greece who were armed with spears and shields.
- The Hoplite is wearing a Corinthian helmet with stylized horns and animal ears, though this combination is typical for Archaic Greece. However, the use of this helmet, already considered obsolete in the Hellenistic World, could have been a simple personal choice of The Hoplite.
