Theseus had to journey to a rock which his dad had put a sword out for him. When he could pull out the sword he was worthy enough to go before him. When he reached his father, He said that young Theseus would soon be king. But he heard that another king named Minos always made them bring 14 boys and girls over to his kingdom.
Talisman or Special Weapon
Once Theseus heard of this, he set off on a boat with black sails toward the kingdom. He told his dad that if the boat came back with white sails, this would mean that his son would be alive. He set off, once he got there he was imprisoned and was met by this girl named Adriana who told him to go into the maze and battle the Minotaur, if you win you are free. Theseus asked that she must have something in return for this advice. All she wanted was to ride back on the boat with them.
Hero's call to adventure!
When Theseus got to the maze, he saw the Minotaur and battled him to the death. Theseus had saved himself and his country! When they headed back home, they were so caught up in the happiness of escaping that they forgot to change the sails. When the King had saw the boat on the horizon, he saw black sails and knew that his son was dead. In his grief, he jumped off a cliff and killed himself before his son even made it to shore.
