Storyboard Text

  • 100 years ago, there was an oracle that told a man named Cadmus to follow this cow and wherever it stops, he was to create a city. He listened to the oracle and followed the cow and marked the spot where the cow stopped.
  •  When he was there and needed water he found a well that was guarded by a dragon and he really needed the water. Cadmus decided to kill the dragon to get the well and he succeeded not knowing that the dragon was the pet of the God Apollo.
  • When the God Apollo found out he was furious, and instead of him just killing him, he decided to put a curse on Cadmus and everyone else in his for as long as their is someone related to him alive.
  • Many many generations later, there was a king and a queen who were having a problem conceiving a child. Fortunately they finally conceived a child, but an oracle told them that when he turned into a man he would kill his father and marry his mother so they decided to have him killed
  • The man who was supposed to kill him didn't and gave him to a farmer who then who the child to a foreign kingdom who couldn't conceive because of age. When he matured he ended up fulfilling the prophecy by killing his father and marrying his mother.
  • When he found out that he had fulfilled the prophecy that he tried so hard to prevent it from happening, he decided to gouge out his eyes and walk the earth as a blind man for the rest of his life as his punishment.
