This is the story of Perseus, the son of Zeus. It all began when the King Acrisius of Argos had found out that her Daughter, Danae, would have a son that would kill the king. To prevent this the king had put his daughter in a chamber that Zeus broke into. Her and Zeus then had a child and the king heard the child's cries. He decided to trap them in a box an d throw them into the sea.
They where then found by a fisherman and lived on his island. Perseus grew up and the tyrant king of the island had seen Danae. She was protected by Perseus though so the king sent Perseus on a journey to bring him the head of the gorgon Medusa.
Bring me the head of Medusa
Perseus, I am Athena and he is Hermes, We have come to help you with your quest. Take my shield.
Perseus's mother didn't want him to go but Perseus wanted to protect his mother. During his journey he was at a cross path where he met the gods Athena and Hermes. Athena gave him his shield and Hermes gave him a sword and his flying sandals. Hermes then helped him find the the gray sisters.
I take you to the grey sisters and take my sword
The gray sisters where three sisters that shared a single eye. Perseus then grabbed it from one of them as she was passing it to another. they begged him to give it back but he wanted to know where the gorgons had gone. They were the sisters to the three gorgons so it was hard for Perseus to get the information from them. They finally told him and gave him a cap that made him invisible and a bag to hold the head.
When he came to Medusa he used the shield to see her reflection. He then sliced off her head while she was sleeping and put it in his bag. Pegasus had come out of the body and the other gorgons had awaken when they heard the creature. He then flew away using the sandals.
He then came across a chained girl and decided to help her. She was the Princess Andromeda who had boosted about being so beautiful that Poseidon had Been angered and sent a sea monster. The king chained her as a sacrifice so the city wasn't destroyed. Perseus killed the beast and married Andromeda. He went back home a turned the tyrant king to stone.
