Storyboard Text

  • Phaeton is the main character of this myth or Greek story. His name means “shining” and his Dad was the Titan of the Sun, Helios or Helious. Helious was considered more of a titan than a God. He drove the sun’s chariot across the sky to rise and set the sun. He did not play a major part in Greek mythology and was later replaced by the God Apollo.
  • The setting takes part on the planet with Phaeton and his mother Clymene. The problem is that Phaeton has heard stories of his father Helious and Phaeton wants to meet his dad and ride the Sun chariot. 
  • I want to visit my dad!
  • In order to star his journey, Phaeton had to prove he was worthy of the journey to his father's palace. When he was proved worthy he started his journey which was full of adventures. Finally, he climbed the highest mountain in the east where he saw his dad's golden palace. 
  • Phaeton claimed to be Helious' son when he got to the palace. He asked to ride the chariot and his dad granted the wish. When Phaeton was riding the sun chariot he lost control and set the world on fire
  • A lot of people were crying to Zeus to make Phaeton stop because he was destroying everything. Zeus became mad and decided to destroy the chariot with his bolts. 
  • From this Greek story we can learn to be more responsible, wiser, and be less impulsive like Phaeton. 
  • Phaeton
