Storyboard Text

  • Daedalus is an Athenian craftsman, famous for his ability to invent and build things.
  • He also has a jealous streak in his nephew, Daedalus realizes that the boy might be more talented than he is. In a fit of jealousy, Daedalus throws Talos off the Acropolis, a tall monument in Athens.That'll teach him not to invent any more carpentry tools. Some people say that Athena saw the boy falling, and transformed him into a partridge. But others argue that Talos died and that Daedalus tried to hide the murder by burying him. 
  • because he was feeling guilty or because he was banished, Daedalus leaves Athens and heads to the island of Crete.
  • While he's hanging out there, Daedalus befriends King Minos, the island's ruler. 
  • Daedalus still has the touch in Crete and he continues his building streak. First, he builds a cow suit so that Crete's queen (Pasiphae) can get it on with a bull. Yes, we said bull. Pasiphae's union with the bull in a Minotaur. King Minos asks Daedalus to build a labyrinth in which to put the Minotaur.
