An Achilles heel is a deadly weakness in spite of overall strength, which can actually or potentially lead to downfall. While the mythological origin refers to a physical vulnerability, idiomatic references to other attributes or qualities that can lead to downfall are common.
Achilles was a Greek hero of the Trojan War and the central character and greatest warrior of Homer’s Iliad. Achilles was said to be a demigod; his mother was the nymph Thetis, and his father, Peleus was the king of the Myrmidons.
The story states that when Achilles was a baby, it was foretold that he would die young. To prevent his death, his mother took him to the River Styx, which was supposed to offer powers of invulnerability, and dipped his body into the water. But as Thetis held Achilles by the heel, his heel was not washed over by the water of the magical river. Achilles grew up to be a man who survived many great battles. But one day, a poisonous arrow shot at him was lodged in his heel, killing him shortly after.
