Storyboard Text

  • My father Acrisius is so selfish. He locked me up in this bronze house underground because a priest told him my son would kill him. You are my son with Zeus, Persues. I will keep your birth a secret from my father.
  • I will get my mother the head of Medusa for her gift.
  • This will surely kill Perseus.
  • King Acrisius had a daughter named Danae but he wanted to have a son. He decided to go to the god in Delphi to see if he would have a son. He found out he would not and that Danae's future son would kill him. Acrisious decided to build a bronze house underground and put his daughter in it. Danae got pregnant by Zeus when coins fell from the sky. Danae tried to keep her son Perseus a secret but her father found out.
  • That must be Hermes.
  • King Acrisius put Danae and Perseus in a chest and pushed them out to sea because he thought they would die. A fisherman named Dictys found the chest and broke it open. He brought Danae and Perseus to his home where his wife cared for them for many years. Polydectes, Dictys cruel brother, ended up falling in love with Danae but did not want Perseus has his son.
  • We need to go to the nymphs of the north but to find out where they are we have to go to the gray, old women.
  • Polydectes came up with a plan to kill Perseus. He told Perseus about the dangerous Gorgons and how we wished to have one of their heads. Perseus was the only one who did not bring his mother a gift for her wedding. He told everyone how he would go and kill Medusa and bring back her head as a gift.
  • Hermes' Plan
  • I will give your eyeball back if you tell me where the nymphs of north are.
  • Perseus traveled to Greece and then to Dodona because he was told to go where the men eat only acorns. Athena and Hermes were protecting Perseus and when Perseus saw Hermes for the first time he knew it was him because of his winged hat and sandals.
  • Hermes told Perseus that he must go to the nymphs of the North in order to get the tools needed to kill Medusa. The nymphs of the North lived in an unknown place so Hermes and Perseus had to go to three old women to find out where the nymphs of the North are. The old women were strange creatures that shared only one eye.
  • Hermes told Perseus his plan to find out where the nymphs of the North were from. Hermes would take Perseus to the women and he would hide until he could grab the women's eye as they were passing it between each other. He would then refuse to give it back until they told him how to get to the nymphs of the north.
