Scamander fought on the side of the Trojans during the Trojan War, after the Greek hero Achilles insulted him. Scamander was also said to have attempted to kill Achilles three times, and the hero was only saved due to the intervention of Hera, Athena and Hephaestus.
In this context, he is the personification of the Scamander River that flowed from Mount Ida across the plain beneath the city of Troy.
In the SeriesEdit
Scamander is a river God who was nearly destroyed by Achilles during the Trojan War and continues to hold a grudge against the hero. When the heroes arrive near Scamander's river during a vacation, the river God sees it as the perfect opportunity to finally take revenge on Achilles through his descendant. He attributes as Archie's hydrophobia as fear of Scamander himself and arranged for Padma to place a potion in Archie's drink so he would swim into the waters that Scamander commanded without the impediment of fear. The river god is defeated when the source of his river is blocked and Padma forces him into a blaze caused when the heroes' boat is destroyed.
