FC: The Adventures of Perseus | 2011 | The Adventures of Perseus
2: Once there was a beautiful princess named Danae. Her father, Acrisius, did not want her to have a baby so he hid her from the world. He had been told that if she had a son, he would die. Even while hidden, the princess found love in Zeus and had a baby boy named Perseus. She tried to keep him hidden from her father, but Acrisius found him soon enough. Angry, Acrisius put Danae and baby Perseus into a boat, and let the sea take them.
4: Danae lay awake, feeling the waves carry her and her boy not wanting this to be the end for them. When suddenly she felt their boat hit land. Lost and confused, fate was on their side, for a nice man opened their vessel and helped them out. The nice man's name was Dictys and he brought them to his brother, Polydectes, who was the hated ruler of all the land! Danae and Perseus lived there for many years.
6: "Don't count the years...count the memories." | Polydectes came to love Danae, but Perseus was yet again unwanted. The hated King tricked Perseus into going on a foolish journey that would surely lead to his death. The King made it seem as though the only thing that would make him happy would be having Medusa's head in his possesion. Perseus thought that by attaining Medusa's head for the King he would be able to win over the King's respect. And he could give Medusa's head as a wedding gift to the King.
8: At the wedding ceremony perseus declared his mission. He left soon after to avoid an awkward confrontation from his own mother. The task sent before him was seen as impossible, but he had the help of two great gods.Hermes and Athena. In order to find where Medusa lived, Perseus needed the help of the three Gray Women. These women had an all seeing eye that was shared between the three. They would be able to assist Perseus if he knew how to persuade them.
10: iPerseus was able to persuade the Gray Women to help him. And then Hermes gave him a sword! And then to add to his journey Athena give him her shield. They continued their journey until they reached a host of happy people. These happy people presented Perseus with even more gifts. He received winged sandals, a magic wallet, and a cap that made him invisible! Perseus now had all that he needed to complete his quest.
12: They flew over the sea to the Terribile Sisters' Island. There he found Medusa and her sisters sleeping peacefully, making his quest all the more simple to complete! With one swift motion and the help of Athena's hand, Perseus was able to ride off with Medusa's head! On his way home, Perseus witnesses an awful sight to see! He sees a serpent about to devour a young princess. He uses what he had recently acquired, to turn the serpent to stone. Medusa's head still had it's magical qualities. Andromeda then became his wife.
14: Perseus and his new found love return to the evil King, and use Medusa's head yet again to turn the king and his evil servants to stone. Perseus saved his mother from marrying the awful King, and made the old fisherman the new king of the island. Perseus, Andromeda, and his mother returned to Argos to find his grandfather Acrisius. To Perseus's dismay, Acrisius had been driven away from the city.
16: In celebrating all of Perseus's victors, he entered in a game of Discus. Alas, his strength proved to powerful and he threw the disc into the crowd hitting his own father. He fell unconscious and never woke back up. The End.
