Storyboard Text

  • Do you want me to tell you in-front of these people?
  • Let them all hear it. It is for them I suffer, more than for myself.
  • The King was said to be killed by highwaymen, and Apollo's trying to take avenge his death. Blood for blood.
  • Seek out the loyal clairvoyant to Apollo, Teiresias.
  • I am not wasting time with someone like that.
  • Oedipus steps out of his palace and sees his people impoverished by a sudden plague. After consulting with the priests, he meets up with Creon who tells him the news.
  • Hearing from Apollo, he says that the murderer of the previous ruler, Laius, must be punished. Creon, himself, couldn't avenge Laius because of the Sphinx deafing them until Oedipus came.
  • You did all of this!
  • Look at the facts!
  • Choragos tries to explain the situation of how what happened to King Laius. But in the end, he believes that the prophet, Teiresias, probably has some insight on the issue.
  • Don't worry about that, me and King Laius already killed our baby.
  • I had a fate that I was going to kill my father and marry my mother.
  • Teiresias tells Oedipus something that annoyed him, making Oedipus call him out as a betrayer and is outraged that he would do something that he'll believe would destroy the state.
  • You are all ignorant. I am never telling you what I know, Oedipus. Just know that misery is coming in your direction.
  • Oedipus and Creon have a falling out when Oedipus yelled out things such as murderer and coward. They argue, even to the point of Oedipus threatening to have Creon killed. They are seperated by Jocasta.
  • Jocasta, Oedipus's wife, tries to consult Oedipus. He tells her about a told fate that forced him to seperate from his "biological" parents. Jocasta tries to reason against this curse of his.
