Diomedes  ( dy -oh- mee -deez) A Greek hero of the Trojan War. In Book XI, he refuses, via a  messenger, Turnus's request to fight against the Trojans and their allies. Drancës  ( dran -seez) A Latin nobleman, in Book XI he acts as an ambassador between Latinus and  Aeneas, decrying Turnus's aggressive stance and calling for a peaceful settlement with the Trojans. Euryalus  (yu- ry -uh-lus) A young Trojan warrior and the inseparable companion of Nisus, in Book IX,  he is slain by the Rutulians while attempting to inform Aeneas of Turnus's attack on the Trojan camp. Evander  (ee- van -duhr) Pallanteum's king and Pallas's father, he allies himself with Aeneas, who  visits him in his city, built on the site of the future Rome. Related to Aeneas through their common  descent from Atlas, Evander is depicted as a benevolent ruler who favors the Trojans's mission.
