King Acrisius of Argos when to the oracle, Delphi, who told him that he would die at the hands of his grandson. Instead of killing his daughter, Danae, he locked her in an underground bronze house so she could not bore him a grandson.
Zeus visited Danae in the form of a golden shower and they conceived. Perseus was born. Acrisius found out and locked the mother and son in a chest and cast them to sea. A fisherman, Dictys, saved them. Zeus was watching over them.
Dictys and his wife took them in and raised Perseus. Dictys had a brother, King Polydectes, who wanted to marry Danae but didn't want Perseus in the picture. Perseus had to get them a wedding gift.
Polydectes told Perseus to get them the head of Medusa, because he knew it was impossible and would kill Perseus. Hermes sends Perseus to the 3 Gray Woman to get information. Then he got Medusa by looking at her reflection through his shield and decapitating her, because eye contact would turn him to stone.
On his journey home, he rescued a damsel in distress: Andromeda, a beautiful princess chained to a rocky ledge. They married and returned home to find Danae missing.
Perseus interrupted Polydectes's feast and turned him nd all the guests to stone with Medusa's head. Perseus made Dictys king. Later, Perseus was competing in an athletic contest and accidentally hurled a discus at the crowd, killing King Acrisius, his grandfather. Fate cannot be avoided.
