One fateful night, The night before her baby was born, Queen Hecuba had a horrible dream.
It showed that instead of giving birth to a normal child, she had given birth to a torch that was burning down Troy.
The very next morning, she told her husband, King Pelias, about the dream that she had. He then decided to go to the prophets to se what it meant.
When confronting the prophets, they told the two that the baby should be killed at birth.
The king could not bring it upon himself to kill the baby, so he told his chief herdsman Agelaos to do the work for him. Agelaos was told to take the baby and bring back it's tongue as proof that it was dead. When Paris, the baby, was born, Agelaos took him to the mountains of Troy. But that's when he realized how beautiful of a baby Paris was. So he just left the baby there so he did not have to watch it suffer from all the wild animals.
Agelaos returned to the mountains to see thst the baby was still alive. To add on top of that, he was being taken care of by a family of bears. Agelaos took it as a sign from the gods. He also could not get himself to kill Paris. He then thought of tricking the king by giving him the tongue of a dead wild dog instead of Paris'. So he killed a wild dog and gave it's tongue to the king. The king was convinced that Paris was dead when he saw the wild dog's tongue brought to him by Agelaos. After that Agelaos took Paris to privately raise and care for. He taught him to hunt and tent herds. Ageloa was turning Paris into a fine young man.
