Storyboard Text

  • Approach to Inmost Cave
  • We must find the nymphs of the north, and to find them, we must get the location from the Gray Women.
  • The Supreme Ordeal / Final Conflict
  • Where is our eye? Who took it?
  • I took your eye, and your not getting it back until you tell me where the nymphs of the north are!!
  • The Reward
  • All right, all right. The nymphs of the north are over the ocean to the north.
  • Here, Hermes tells Perseus that he has to get the winged sandals, a magic wallet, and an invisibility cap. And to get these Perseus has to find the nymphs of the north, which only the Gray Women know the whereabouts of.
  • The Road Back
  • Once Hermes was done leading Perseus to the Gray Women, he was told to steal their only eye. Then he could force them to tell him the whereabouts of the nymphs of the north.
  • The Resurrection
  • The Gray Women told Perseus that the nymphs of the north were over the ocean to the north. And since they told him the direction, Perseus gave the Gray Women their eye back.
  • Return With The Elixer
  • Once Perseus and Hermes arrived, the nymphs of the north kindly welcomed them, and happily gave him the three magic gifts. Now that Perseus has the winged sandals, the invisibility cap, and the magic wallet, Hermes guilds him to the island of the Gorgons, where Medusa lives.
  • Perseus flies onto the island with Hermes while the Gorgons are asleep, but cant figure out which Gorgon is Medusa. Luckily, Athena told Perseus it was the Middle Gorgon, so Perseus flies in close, looks at her reflection and chops off her head. Then, he stuffs it in the magic wallet and flies off back home, invisible with his cap so he can't be caught.
  • Returning home with Perseus' gift for Polydectes, Polydectes denied that Perseus could have gotten the head of Medusa and lived. Now realizing that Polydectes sent Perseus off to die on purpose, Perseus showed Polydectes Medusa's head, turning Polydectes to Stone. Soon after, Perseus wanted to participate in some games,in another city, and while throwing a discus, hit King Acrisius, fulfilling the Oracles Prophacy.
