What? Danae's future son, my own grandson, is destined to kill me, King of Argos? This must be prevented!
Afraid of Danae having a son, King Acrisius hides his daughter very far away where he thinks nobody will find her.
Unfortunately, Zeus is attracted to Danae, and King Acrisius has a grandson named Perseus.
Infuriated by his grandson's existence, King Acrisius locks Danae and Perseus away in a chest and throws them out to sea.
Luckily for Danae and Perseus, a fisherman on the coast of the island Seriphos pulls their chest in with a fishing net and lets them out.
The King of Seriphos, Polydectes, sees Danae and is instantly in love. Perseus, having listened to people talk about the king, knows he is a bad man who will stop at nothing to make her his queen.
The king knows he cannot force Danae to marry him while Perseus is with her, so he invites Perseus to talk. There, King Polydectes tricks Perseus into going to slay the mortal of the three Gorgons, Medusa. The task is almost impossible, and Perseus is considered dead the moment he leaves.
