The story begins with a man named Perseus who lived on a called Seriphus. He had a very difficult childhood with him being cast into the ocean by his father.
Crossing the First Threshold
But one day the wicked king of the island named Polydectes wanted Perseus' mom, so he tricked Perseus into finding and killing the Gorgon Medusa which he thought was impossible.
Tests, Allies, Enemies
On Persues' quest, he met up with two gods, Hermes and Athena who told him to go to the Gray Women to tell Persues where he can get the tools to fight Medusa.
When Perseus came across the Gray Women he stole the eye that all the women shared so they could tell him where the gear was.
When Perseus arrived at the place that the gray Women told him to go he found himself in a place with people partying and dancing and they led him to flying sandals, a magic wallet, and a cap that made the wearer invisible.
Before Perseus came on the island that the Gorgons resided both Hermes and Athena gave him a sword and a shield to fend off the Gorgons.
