FC: The Tale of Perseus

1: Once upon a time, there was a big bad king named Acrisius. The king was told by a god that the son of his only child, a daughter named Danae, would end his life. Hearing this, he grounded his daughter for life! One day, the god Zeus, came down in the form of gold dust and gave Danae a baby. | Once upon a time, there was a big bad king named Acrisius. The king was told by a god that the son of his only child, a daughter named Danae, would end his life. Hearing this, he grounded his daughter for life! One day, the god Zeus, came down in the form of gold dust and gave Danae a baby.

2: When Acrisius found out, he sent her and the baby, who she named Perseus, off to an island. Here they were welcomed by a fisherman named Dictys. However, his evil brother Polydectes wished to get rid of Perseus so that he could marry his mother.

3: In order to do this, Polydectes constructed a plan to force Perseus to leave the island in search of the head of Medusa; a nearly impossible task! This head had the power to turn any living thing into stone. On the journey to Medusa’s lair, he was helped greatly by the gifts of two gods. He received a sword from Hermes and a reflective shield from Athena.

4: Along the way, with the directions of the magic gray women, he came across a magic hat and wallet along with winged sandals. Soon after, he found Medusa and took her head clean off! On his way back home, he found a princess, Andromeda, in danger of a sea monster. Perseus saved Andromeda and quickly took her hand in marriage.

5: When he arrived at home, Perseus found that his mother was in hiding in order to avoid Polydectes. Filled with anger, he found the evil king along with the kings men and he turned them all to stone with the head of Medusa.

6: With Polydectes gone, Perseus made Dyctis the new king. He, his mother and Andromeda, however, went to Greece in hopes of again living with Acrisius. However upon their arrival, they were told Acrisius had left forever. Soon after, Perseus went up North to participate in an athletic contest. Ironically, he mis-threw a discuss and hit Acrisius, who was watching in the stands, in the head, killing him instantly. | With Polydectes gone, Perseus made Dyctis the new king.
