FC: The Story of Perseus | By: Sam Bucco & Drew Brady
1: Long ago a hero named Perseus was born, but his birth was kept a secret so King Acrisius wouldn't kill him.
3: When the king discovers Perseus he casts him and his mother away by throwing them into the ocean in a chest. Perseus is later found by a fisherman, but his mother dies.
4: Many years later, Perseus is sent on a quest to behead Medusa and stop the mighty Kraken.
5: Medusa has the power to turn any living creature into stone by a simple gaze.
6: However, even a demigod, a half man-half god, such as Perseus knew that he could not go into this battle short handed. He was given a shield from Athena and a sword from Hermes. He also sought advice from the three wise witches who shared a single eye.
7: The three nymphs of the north gave Perseus knowledge on how to slay Medusa and destroy the Kraken.
8: When Perseus arrived to kill the Kraken he noticed a beautiful princess named Andromeda. She was a sacrifice to the gods but Perseus fell in love at first sight. He waited for the Kraken and killed it the same way he killed Medusa, by cutting its head off.
9: Perseus and Andromeda get married and lived happily ever after.
