FC: The Adventures of Perseus
2: There once was King who wanted a son. Instead he had a beautiful daughter.
3: He disliked this, and locked her away in a large tower. While in this tower, the princess encounter Zeus, the mighty leader of all the gods. The princess and Zeus liked each other, and had a baby.
4: The baby boy was named Perseus.
5: The King feared Perseus, because legend had said, the son of his daughter would come back to kill him. So the king cast the princess and baby Perseus into the sea.
7: Time pasted, and the two were rescued by a friendly fisherman. He brought them to his home island, where he and his wife took care of them. The princess and Perseus lived here for many years, under the care of the fisherman and his wife.
8: Perseus was now a strong handsome man. Brave and courageous he could handle any task the fisherman could give him.
9: One day, the mean leader of the island noticed the beautiful princess. He wanted to marry her, but disliked Perseus.
10: The leader came up with plan to get rid of Perseus. "Perseus come here" he said. "I believe it would make a wonderful wedding gift if you brought your mother and I the head of the gorgon Medusa".
11: The gorgons, especially Medusa, were terrifying creatures. They had the body of a large serpent, the scales of dragon, hair made from snakes, but they had the face of a woman. Legend said that anyone who looked into their eyes were turned into stone.
12: Perseus knew this, but he did not care. He was brave and nothing would stop him from getting the head of Medusa.
13: The gods Athena and Hermes had been watching Perseus, and knew this would not be an easy task. They agreed to assist Perseus in his quest.
14: The secrets of the Gorgon's lair were known only to the nymphs of the north, but no one knew where they lived, except of a select few...
15: Hermes told Perseus that the three gray witches would tell him where they nymphs lived. The three gray witches were wise and all knowing, but were also nasty and fowl.
16: Hermes led Perseus to the three gray witches at the top of a mountain. Their Perseus noticed something. The three of them share only one eye.
17: Perseus had an idea. He ran straight towards the witches and snatched their eyeball. He then demanded to know the location of the nymphs of the north.
18: The witches told them where they lived, than begged Perseus to return their eye.
19: The journey to the nymphs of the north would be long, but Hermes was an excellent guide and took him straight to the nymphs.
20: When Perseus and Hermes arrived they were greeted by the nymphs and the great goddess Athena.
21: The nymphs gave Perseus directions and a shield that could cast a reflection of his surrounding, and help avoid the gorgon's deadly glare. Athena gave him her sword, which would pierce through their tough skin. And finally, Hermes gave Perseus his boots to help him in his travels. One tasked lied ahead, and Perseus would have to face it alone.
22: Perseus arrived at the cave of the gorgons. He entered slowly, and spotted the three gorgons asleep. Using his shield to guide him, he sneaked up to Medusa.
23: As he brought his sword back Medusa woke up. But she was too late and Perseus cut her head off. He quickly put the head in his bag, as the other gorgons started to wake up. They chased after Perseus, but he escaped using Hermes' winged shoes.
24: On his way home, Perseus spotted a water nymph who was about to be sacrificed. He fell in love with her and saved her from the island.
25: Perseus returned to the wedding, angry at the fisherman's brother he told all his friends to shield their eyes. He flashed the head of Medusa to the crowd, and all evil doers were turned into stone.
