FC: Perseus By Chris + Casey

1: King Acrisius of Argos had a daughter named Danae. He went to Delphi to get advice to see if he would get a son, and the priest told him that his daughter would have a son who would kill him. The king locks away his daughter in order to prevent the prophecy from coming true.

2: Zeus, the king of the gods, one day gets Danae pregnant, and she gives birth to a son named Perseus. Upon learning of Perseus' birth, Acrisius cast the two off into the sea to await certain death. Zeus intervened, and they were found by a fisherman named Dictys, who acted as their guardian.

4: Dicty's brother, Polydectes, falls in love with Danae, but doesn't want the son. Polydectes persuades Perseus to kill Medusa, one of the Gorgons, and so Perseus set off. However, he had the help of Hermes and Athena to slay her. Under the guidance of Hermes, Perseus had to find the Gray Women, who shared only one eye, to find the lair of Medusa.

6: Hermes told Perseus to steal the Gray Women's one eye when they pass it to one another, to use as a bargaining tool. The Gray Women told him to find the Nymphs of the North, who would prepare him for his duel with Medusa. Still guided by Hermes, Perseus set forth to the country of the Hyperboreans. There, he was host to happy revelries and banquets.

8: He received 3 gifts: winged sandals, a magic wallet that could carry anything, and a cap that could make him invisible. With Athena's shield and Hermes' sword, Perseus was ready to kill Medusa. By a stroke of luck, he arrived at Medusa's island, when she was sleeping beside her stories. He approached Medusa by looking into his shield. He raised his hand, and cut Medusa's head off without looking directly at her, and seized her head and dropped it into his wallet. The sisters awoke and chased him, to no avail.

10: On his way back to Polydectes, he found a woman named Andromeda, and fell in love He saved her life from the serpent with Medusa's head and married her, and took her with him. Upon returning to his mother, he found no one there. Danae refused Polydectes' marriage proposal, and so she and Dictys had to flee to a temple.

12: Perseus went back to Greece with Andromeda, and tried to reconcile with Acrisius. When they reached Argos, they found Acrisius had fled the city. Perseus heard that the King of Larissa was holding an athletic contest, and he entered as a discus thrower. During the event, Perseus hurled a missile and it swerved into the stands and it hit Acrisius, thus fulfilling the prophecy.
