Seareach is a Phaiakian and a friend of the Prince Laodamas. He competes in the pentathlon that is held to impress Odysseus, and he wins the wrestling competition. He goads Odysseus into throwing the discus by claiming that Odysseus is not an athlete and has no sports training or skills. For his impertinence, Seareach is reprimanded by Alkinoos and told to make amends. He apologizes to Odysseus and presents him with a very good bronze sword.
