Storyboard Text

  • The King and Queen of Thebes had a baby boy. They took him to a oracle, who couldn't see, but could see into the future. They told him that the boy would kill his father when he was older.
  • To avoid this happening, the King and Queen gave the child to a shepard and told him to pierce the babies ankles, so he could never walk, and to leave him in the moutians. The shepard didn't have the heart to do so, so he passed the baby to another shepard who then gave him to another King and Queen.
  • After learning of the prophecy and thinking the king and queen where his parents, he left the kingdom. He then ran into a old man who almost hit him with the chariot. After arguing, he killed this old man. Little did he know he just killed his own father.
  • You think anyone is gonna miss him, Dad?  
  • Highly doubt it.
  • Later on, he met a Sphinx, who was destoring crops and people if they didn't answer the Sphinx question right. The question was "What walks on four feet in the morning, two in the afternoon, and three at night?" The answer was man- or a baby that crawls on all fours, walks on two legs as an adult, and uses a walking stick when old. The Sphinx then killed itself.
  • When he reached Thebes, he was given title as king for killing the Sphinx. He then married a woman named Jocasta. They had four children together, Eteocles, Polnices, Antigone, and Ismene. He then learned that he married and had kids with his mother. After they all found out, him and Iseme fled and went elswhere. 
  • After that, his sons Polynices and Eteocles decided they would share the throne, but when Eteocles refused to hand over the throne to Polynices, he left and returned with a army. Both brothers died, and one was buried as a hero and one as a traitor.
