The Suitors were the main antagonists of the epic poem Odyssey Part II. Oddyseus' palace was full of these men wanting to marry Penelope, kill Telemachus and become ruler of Ithaca. They are rude and arrogant and dont care about anybody with less wealth. They were all killed in a systematic occurance by Odysseus, Telemachus, Eumaeus, and Philoeteus (with some help from Athena). Antinous was their leader who was the first to die.
