Storyboard Text

  • The baby must die!
  • One night, Queen Hecuba had a horrible dream days before giving birth to her son, Paris.
  • Please kill my son, Paris. For proof, bring me back his tongue.
  • In her dream, instead of giving birth to a healthy baby, she gave birth to a flaming torch, which later burned down Troy.
  • I'm sorry
  • King Priam and Queen Hecuba consulted with the prophets and they said that this was an omen of the future and ordered the King to have the baby killed once he was born.
  • Beside himself, King Priam knew that he couldn't kill his own son, so he handed the job over to his chief herdsman, Agelaos. 
  • Doing as he was told, he brought Paris to the mountains of Troy. But when Agelaos realized how handsome Paris was, he knew he could not kill him. So, Agelaos left Paris on the slopes of the mountains, sure that he would be eaten by wild animals.
  • When Agelaos returned, he was surprised that Paris was alive and well being cared by a family of bears. He knew that Paris was special, so he took him for himself. But he then remembered that King Priam wanted his tongue for proof that he had been killed. So, Agelaos cut off a dogs tongue, and returned to Troy with it to convince King Priam. From then on, Paris lived a happy life with Agelaos.
