Myrmidon

MYRMIDON, n. A follower of Achilles-particularly when he didn't lead.

2010 Update: An armed sycophant, more credulous than a drone bee and more persuasive. A partisan without couch or complaint.

One of my naughty vampires is a Myrmidon.

Hai, Ariel. Yassou!

Sure, TLP. My sources for this entry were Bierce and Webster.

Superficial, Pia. Just running low on words.

Indeed, Jim. You can pretty much always tell 'em.

Jenn, I'd blame it too, if I watched it, I bet.

Not my word, Thom. Don't take mine.

Ayup, Karen.

Bear, if you need your dazed state confirmed, you're only at 210.

Thanks, Cooper.

I'm sure they're related, Terry. Just replace the mallets with swords.
