  • As a child Jason was smuggled out of his kingdom and raised by Chiron The Gentle Centaur. After many years Jason returned to reclaim his throne and was sent on a quest to retrieve the Golden Fleece.
  • With the help of the goddesses Athena and Hera, Jason built the Argo, a ship with 50 oars. The shipmates of the Argo included many strong people, including Hercules, and they were called The Argonauts.
  • After many adventures The crew of the Argo arrived at the kingdom ruled by Aetes. Aetes gave Jason seemingly impossible tasks but with the help of Aetes daughter, a sorceress names Medea, who fell in love with Jason. He managed to complete the tasks.
  • After completing the tasks handed to him by Aetes, Medea led the Argos crew to the Golden Fleece. Medea then used a magic potion to put the dragon who guards the fleece to sleep, and the crew of the Argo set sail with Aetes in pursuit.
  • Medea slew and chopped up her brother then tossed him into the sea towards a nearby shore, knowing Aetes would stop pursuing The Argonauts to give his son a proper funeral.
  • Jason, the argonauts and Medea then sailed back to the Kingdom of Iolcus with the Golden Fleece.
