Eurydice! No! I can't live without you! I must have you back!
Most of the story takes place in the Underworld. This is the home of the dead, and it appears desolate and gloomy. It is dark and cavernous.
Alright, fine. You've convinced me and Persephone through the power of your music. You can take her, but you may not look back at her until you have left the Underworld
The story begins with Orpheus falling in love with Eurydice. Orpheus is a demi-god who is a gifted musician. The two get married.
Shortly after the wedding, Eurydice is bitten by a snake and dies. Orpheus is inconsolable.
Orpheus decides to go to the Underworld to rescue his love. He needs to adventure to the unknown region, needs to get past Hades' three-headed monster dog, Cerberus, and then convince Hades to let her go. Orpheus convinces Hades to let Eurydice go on the condition that he does not look back at her until they are fully out of the Underworld.
As he approaches the exit to the Underworld, Orpheus gets nerous that he has been tricked and looks back for Eurydice, despite the warning. Eurydice is then sent back for eternity.
Orpheus returns to the forest, but has no will to live. He wanders around miserably until he is killed by a pack of wood nymphs.
