Storyboard Text

  • Perseus
  • A prophecy told that king Acrisius of Argos' daughter would have a son who will kill him, so the king locked his daughter in a room. Zeus came to her and shortly after, she had a son and named him Perseus.
  • King Acrisius placed his daughter, Danae, and Perseus into a box and set them out to sea, so they would die. They washed ashore on an island, though, and a fisherman named Dictys found them. He and his wife took care of Danae and Perseus.
  • The four lived together for many years but the king of the island, Polydectes, was a terrible man and fell in love with Danae. He wanted her, but not Perseus, so he asked Perseus to get him the head of a Gorgon for his wedding present, knowing he would fail and die.
  • Perseus sailed across the seas searching for the Gorgons. He visited Delphi and the priestess told him to go to Dodona, but the talking trees would not tell him where to go.
  • At last, Hermes presented himself. He gave Perseus a sword which could cut through the Gorgon's scales and Athena gave him a shield to look at them in. Hermes led him to the Gray Women, who had one eye between the 3 of them. Perseus took their eye and didn't give it back until they told him where the Gorgons lives.
  • On their way back from the Gray Women, they came across the Hyperboreans who were known for their kindness and parties. They gave Perseus 3 gifts: a wallet which changed size to fit anything, winged shoes, and a cap of invisibility.
