Storyboard Text

  • Please Lord Theseus pity us, for all of the wives of the nearby town have lost their husbands from an invader who refuses to bury or burn the bodies! 
  • This I cannot allow. Creon shall pay for this!
  • The Knight is introduced in his tale as Theseus, Duke of Athens, who conquers the Amazons and marries the Queen of that land, Hippolyta and takes the Queen's sister Emelye as well.
  • Pomala, it's just not worth living life if I'm not able to have Emelye.
  • Venus, hear me. If you will it, allow me to escape this prison, so that I may pursue my love for Emelye.
  • After Theseus's successful conquest, he returns home to Athens and notices a group of women dressed in all black. He asked what he could do for them, and the eldest one mentioned that she was once the wife of King Cappaneus.
  • Once their exchange was finished, Theseus, being a knight that practices chivalry, declares that he shall avenge the fallen and attack Creon along with his town that he controls.
  • When Theseus wins that battle he stumbles upon two royal cousins that happen to have been enemy knights. He orders his men to imprison both of them in Athens indefinitely.  
  • After Arcite is released from a request by Theseus's friend, and Pomala escapes, Theseus shows pity and allows the two knights to fight each other with a small force of equal strength. Whoever wins will marry Emelye.
  • After the Gods intervened and sent an earthquake to fatally wound Arcite in order to please Venus, Theseus pronounced that Emelye will marry Palamon after a funeral to honor Arcite.
