All those time-traveling occasionally-or-cyclically amnesiac Mary Sue stories deserve this sorry little quote from “The Traveler and the Tale”, by Jane Yolen, in Sister Emily’s Lightship and Other Stories:

Names found in the staff of the film The Number 23:

Rainer Wolfe

Degrees of Freedom:

“My father was the Keeper of the Truth.”
“But that truth has been revealed.”

Dilios. Man. There is just so much character study to do with him on his less-than-victorious journey back to Sparta.

What would the journey back be like, with those bastard cowards the Acadians?

How would it feel to be cheated of "an honourable death"? To walk home alive, leaving his soldier brothers, his King, to die?

How would he be recieved in Sparta? What would they say to him, about him? (Not to mention his wife, as [livejournal.com profile] christwise discusses and prompts about here.)

How would it feel to relate the battle before the councilors?

How did he end up leading the whole conglomeration of armies one year later?

And, yes, pretty man.
