Kolanos is a soldier and agent provocateur working on behalf of the Mykenae. He represents the new breed of soldiers favored by king Agamemnon - ruthless, merciless, and unconstrained by any notion of honor. This puts him at odds with the older members of the Mykeanean court. Argurios, for example, finds his methods abhorrent and does not understand his influence with the king.

Kolanos is described as a large warrior with pale blonde, almost white hair. He is capricious and savage, with a great delight in causing pain, but is not particularly brave. He favors attacking civilian targets such as the families of his opponents. He has been ordered by king Agamemnon to destroy Helikaon, and he attempts to do so with deceit, trickery, and force. He is not above betraying fellow Mykenae in pursuit of his goals.
