Your Field Guide to Spotting Paris

If you're looking to talk to Paris, the famous pretty boy of Troy, you'll have to take the first train down to Elysium, the city of the blessed dead. We're not quite sure why he gets to hang out there. After all, he did cause the horrible destruction of his entire hometown of Troy by taking off with Helen. But hey, what do we know? You'll probably find Paris in some frou-frou salon getting a mani/pedi or something like that. His crazy good looks are the best thing he's got going for him, and he aims to keep it that way. He'll most likely be surrounded by a gaggle of girls making googly eyes at him. You have to hand it to the guy. He's kind of selfish and a bit of a coward, but he totally has a way with the ladies.
