Storyboard Text

  • King Acrisius of Argos had his daughter Danaë, but wished for a son to pass on his legacy. He traveled to the oracle in Delphi to ask if he could ever wish for a son - the priestess said no, and that his grandson would be the one to kill him.
  • King Acrisius locks Danaë away underground in a house of bronze and a roof open to the sky, in fear of the gods instead of killing her.
  • The underground house did not stop Zeus, and Zeus came to Danaë and soon she gave birth to Perseus.
  • As soon as the king found out, he crafts a huge chest for the two and sends them off to sea to be killed indirectly. Fisherman Dictys found them and took them home, where they would live for many years.
  • Polydectes, the king of the island, wanted to marry Danaë, but did not want a son. He spoke to Perseus about how much he wanted one of the Gorgon heads.
  • The day of Polydectes and Danaë's wedding, Perseus does not have a gift to give, so he declared he would go and chop off Medusa's head as a gift.
