Storyboard Text

  • Flaming torch, Troy, burn...
  • Kill the baby at birth!
  • Hecuba had a dream the night before Paris was born. Though, in her dream she gave birth to a flaming torch. The flaming torch was going to born all of Troy.
  • I just can't!
  • After Hecuba described her dreams to King Priam he was determined to ask the prophets. They thought the dreams was what would occur in the future. So he commanded the king to have the baby killed at the time of birth.
  • Charge!!
  • King Priam understood the advice of killing the baby at birth but couldn't bare to kill his own son. So, he gave the job to Agelaos. King Priam had him bring back the baby's tongue as evidence of his death. Agelaos took the orders and left.
  • Thank you.
  • After the baby was born Agelaos rushed him straight to the mountains of Troy. Though, Paris was unique and had beauty so Agelaos couldn't dare to kill the baby himself. So, instead left the baby on the mountain where he would easily get killed by the wild animals. 
  • As Agelaos returned to the same place the next day he saw the baby was still alive and protected by a path of bears. Agelaos realized this must be a signal by the gods and felt to bad to kill Paris. So, Agelaos was unable to kill Paris. To satisfy King Priam he killed a wild dog and sliced out the tongue to bring to the king.
  • Once, King Priam believed that Paris was dead Agelaos took the baby to privately  raise on his own. Paris became a powerful and healthy boy as Agelaos taught him many new things.
