As seen in The Penthesileiad
The Far-Throwing AmazonEvandre is one of twelve Amazon warriors who attend Queen Penthesileia during her journey to King Priam's Troy. Evandre is described in the Mythoversal Penthesileia as the strong-armed thrower of heavy spears.
AppearanceEvandre maintains the practice of her birth-tribe of shaving her head in order to reveal the tribal tattoo on the crown of her head. She is the only one of Penthesileia's Amazon companions to follow this practice, giving her a distinctive appearance. Her tribal tattoo is a triangle on the crown of her head.
PersonalityEvandre is the most spiritual of the Amazon companions, which manifests as strict adherence to the traditions of her tribe. She credits her unparalleled strength as a sign from the gods that she has pleased them. Her friends find her pious behavior and constant reminders to be annoying at times, but none can complain about her prowess with a spear.
Fighting StyleEvandre favors a heavy spear, both for slashing and throwing. Her strength allows her to inflict massive amounts of damage. She can switch to a sword or axe if no spear is available, but eschews the bow, knife, or dart. Note: Proficiency at horseback riding makes each mounted Amazon a match for a two-man chariot, and provides a height and speed advantage over infantry units.
FamilyEvandre considers Heracles to be her godfather.
In the Mythoversal PenthesileiadEvandre is introduced along with Penthesileia's other Amazon companions in "Ride, Amazons, Ride!" in The Penthesileiad . At King Priam's welcoming feast, she is the focus character of Verse 11 in The Penthesileiad , telling the story of her tattoos to an audience of Trojan priests and elders.
In the Epic CycleEvandre appears in Book I of the Posthomerica of Quintus of Smyrna, a 4th-ish Century retelling of a story from the long-lost 8th Century BCE Aethiopis of Arctinus Milesius.
She has no speaking lines, is credited with no kills, and is killed by Meriones, along with Thermodosa.
