Guards! Retrieve Danae and confine her to the bronze house. Make sure she doesn't see the light of day again!
The king of Argos, Acrisius, had a daughter named Danae. One day he visited an oracle, who revealed to him that his grandson would kill him. Because he feared the gods, he chose to lock Danae in a bronze house underground instead of killing her.
I shall bring the head of Medusa!
One day a gold light shined through the roof and Danae bore a son, and it was known that his father was Zeus. Eventually King Acrisius found out and put Danae and Perseus in a chest and set them free in the ocean.
I am Hermes!
Eventually they reached land and were found by a fisherman named Dictys. He took them home to his wife where they were cared for them for many years. Trouble found them once again when Polydectes, ruler of the island and Dicty's brother, discovered Danae's beauty. Polydectes wanted to get rid of Perseus so Danae would be all his.
We must visit the Gray Women!
Polydectes told Perseus the story of the Gorgons. Later, at the celebration of the upcoming marriage, Perseus announced he would go slay Medusa and bring her head as a gift, as there was nothing else he could give. No man could achieve such a feat, but luckily two gods were watching over him.
Perseus went to Delphi to visit the Oracle for advice, but the Priestess told him to go to Dodona. There they could tell him nothing but that he was under the protection of the god. Eventually he met a beautiful person , and saw him wearing a winged hat and winged sandals. He knew it must have been Hermes, the guide and giver of good.
Hermes told him that he needed the proper equipment to face the Gorgons, and he advised him to see the nymphs of the North. To find them, he would need to visit the Gray Women. The plan was for Hermes to guide him to the Gray Women, where he would rush forward and seize their one eye while they were exchanging it, and refuse to give it back until they told him where to find the Nymphs.
