We will call him Perseus.
I need to indirectly kill the boy without the gods becoming mad at me...
King Acrisius of Argos had a daughter named Danae. The king really wanted a son or grandson , so he went to Delphi to ask the god if he would be a father of a boy. The priestess told him that his daughter would have a son that would kill him.
What the.... What is in here.
To prevent Danae from having children, King Acrisius locked his daughter in a house built with bronze. One day Zeus dropped gold from the sky and into her room. Zeus soon had an affair with Danae, and they had a child named Perseus.
I will be bringing you the best gift of all! Medusa's head!
King Acrisius found out that Danae had a child. He was frious, and when his daughter told him that the father was Zeus he did not believe her. Out of his fear he placed Danae and Perseus into a big chest and he casted them out to sea.
Do you know where I could find Medusa?
The great chest was swiftly carried on a wave and hit an island. One fisherman named Dictys came across the chest, and he opened it up, and Perseus and Danae. They were cared for and lived there. The ruler of the island was the ruthless Polydectes.
One day, Danae caught Polydectes eye. He wanted to marry her, but did not want Perseus. He told Perseus that he only wanted Medusa's head. She was a gorgon which was a monster. Polydectes decided to get married to Danae, and Perseus announced that for their present he would kill medusa and bring her head back to Polydectes. Of course Polydectes was happy because he wanted Perseus dead.
Perseus set off onto his quest to find Medusa. He first went to Greece and then to Delphi. The priestess told him to go to the land where men do not eat Demeter's grain, but eat acorns. That is all they could tell him because they did not know where the Gorgons lived.
