Troilus and Cressida Characters

Calchas is Cressida’s father, a Trojan priest who has gone over to the Greeks, not that they treat him very well for it. 

He requests that the Greeks exchange the captured Antenor for Cressida, though he subsequently offers little evidence of actually caring for her; rather, he appears to find her useful as a consort for Diomedes, as that keeps him in the Greeks’ good graces.
