You should know at the very least these characters from the Iliad. Labels of Greek or Trojan mainly refer to the side they supported in the Trojan War. Helen is given the label of her family of origin, Greek, even though she lived with the Trojans during the war. Gods, goddesses, nymphs or rivers are labeled immortal. For basics on these main characters, see Iliad Characters.
