  • Orpheus plays music for Hades about how much he loves Eurydice and Hades said he could allow her to leave as long as Orpheus didn't look around.
  • Orpheus right before he gets up into the light turns around and Eurydice goes poof. Orpheus was sad and mourns while playing music. After a while the women of Thrace kills Orpheus and gets reunited with Eurydice.
  • Daedalus gets locked up in a tower and escapes with the help of his son Icarus.
  • Daedalus creates wings for him and Icarus to get off the island they were trapped on.
  • Icarus fly's too close to the sun and the wax melts and Icarus plummets into the sea. Daedalus gets Icarus's body and fly's to a piece of land. He calls it Icaria after his son. When Daedalus reaches land he builds a shrine and offers up his wings to the god Apollo.
