The legend Hercules, represented by the pawn, was the greatest hero of mythology. He is often depicted wearing the lion skin from his first labor.

Zeus, represented by the King, his father and King of Gods, stands almighty with his thunderbolt in hand.

Athena, represented by the Queen, armed defender of justice, always protected Hercules.

Apollo, represented by the Bishop, took part in the Battle of the Giants.

Centaur, represented by the Knight, kidnapped Hercules’s wife, so the hero killed him to save her. Ironically, years later it was his poisonous blood that caused Hercules death.
