  • Call to Adventure
  • Refusal of the Call
  • Theseus was born to his mother Aethra and the king of Athens and lived with his mother after his father decided to leave them for the city of Athens.
  • Mentor
  • When Theseus was a bit older, his mother took him to a rock, which, much to Theseus' surprise, beheld a robe of roal purple and a silver sword, which his father had engraved the words "I was made in Athens."
  • Threshold
  • Theseus wanted to find his father, but his mother was fearful for his safety and did not want him to venture into the world alone.
  • Test, Allies, Enemies
  • Even though Theseus had never met his father, his father guided him simply by leaving the sword and cloak for him. His father had given him the means to find him and had provided him with the will of how to go through life.
  • Theseus set off for Athens in pursuit of the man who had left him the sword and cloak. He was deermined to find him and would not allow anything to get in his way.
  • On his way to Athens, Theseus comes across several tests, monsters, and beasts. A beast who would rip travelers limb from limb; a man with a flesh eating tortoise; a man who was infamous for strapping people to the bed and if the did not fit, he would cut their heads/feet off. Theseus defeated all of them.
