Storyboard Text

  • Expostion
  • Yay Dad's home
  • Conflict
  • I swore by the styx river that I would give him any wish he would like
  • I guess I have to
  • But only I can handle the steeds
  • Please can I ride your chariot for just one day
  • Rising Action
  • One day as usual, Helios left his golden palace and crossed the East sea to the West sea and to his Evening palace where he greeted his daughters and told them all he saw down on Earth
  • Climax
  • Then as he gets ready to go back to the East to rise up again his son Phaethon asked him to ride his chariot for one day. Helios swore by the Styx River that he would grant Phaethon any wish since he was quite fond of him but only he could control the steeds
  • Falling action
  • Helios puts his golden rays on Phaethons head and rubs divine ointment on him so that he could withstand the heat from the chariot. As soon as the gates opened Phaethon rushed out of the palace, but the steeds feel like they are being held by unskilled hands
  • Resolution
  • Phaethon is almost thrown off the chariot then drops the reins making the steeds fly down so quickly making the Earth crack and the rivers dry up and then went up so quickly making the Earth freeze
  • Then on Mount Olympus Zeus said "I have to stop this to save the world from destruction" so he threw a thunder bolt at it and it broke into pieces killing Phaethon in the River Po
  • Zeus took pity on his sisters and turned them into popular trees and Helios's wife fixes the chariot while Helios grieved on his lost son and swore that he would never let anyone else but himself and Appolo the God of light ride his chariot
