King Minos summoned and asked Icarus and Daedalus to build him a palace, with tall towers and a curving roof, with a maze at the top for an anonymous reason. The job was high priced, so Daedalus and his son, Icarus, accepted the task.
Daedalus and Icarus build King Minos the palace, come to find out that the maze was for a human-eating creature. As Daedalus tries to leave Crete, he is forbidden, he is the only one who knows how to get through the maze. Icarus and Daedalus are then locked in a tower at the top of the castle.
Daedalus and Icarus stay at the top of the castle in the tower, being fed great meals and good service, although Icarus is well with this treatment, Daedalus is unhappy. Until Daedalus gets an idea while looking out the window
As Daedalus saw the birds flying around the tower, he asked them to lend some of their feathers. Daedalus collected them, he began making something with them.
Daedalus had used the collected feathers, along with wax, to make wings. Daedalus was going to apply the wings onto himself and Icarus, and escape the palace. Under one rule, which Daedalus repeated to Icarus, "Do not fly too close to the sun."
Icarus flew off into the sky, "I'm flying!" Icarus explains to his father, Daedalus. As Icarus flies off the island of Crete, he begins to feel heat. His feathers start slipping off and his wax melts, he's too close to the sun! Icarus falls down...down...down, into the unknown, and that was the last seen of Icarus.
