Achilles was a distant moon of Uranus, the position of its orbit around the planet permanently obscuring it from Earth's view. It was unintentionally destroyed by the NSDF after the destruction of a Fury factory.
Achilles' environment appears to be, at least superficially, similar to that of Earth; in this regard its most important feature is the presence of liquid water, which forms oceans that (unlike their terrestrial counterparts) appear to be landlocked. The moon's surface is covered in plant life which, while low, appears to grow quite densely and is usually thickest at higher elevations. Orbital images of Achilles also imply the existence of mountain ranges and deserts, where plant coverage is much lower than in the lowlands.
The Furies fled to Achilles after the destruction of their forces on Titan by the combined forces of the NSDF and CCA. They tapped the moon's core for power, but the destruction of their Geo-Thermal Power Cells destabilised the moon and caused it to violently explode.

- The texture used on the Achilles model seen in the moon's shell animation appears to be derived from a satellite photograph of Earth; the reversed coastlines of much of Europe, northern Asia and north-eastern Africa can still just be made out.
