Why would he have a hideous beast such as the Minotaur!
Serve me!! Because you're the best!
Daedalus and his son Icarus were called to the Island from the King, Minos so that Daedalus can build a maze. Which, he was very confused in why the King needs a maze!
Son, we are going to fly away!
But- wait what?
Im the first boy to ever fly!
Since Daedalus would receive gold as a reward, he began working on the maze. But as soon as he found out that the maze was made for torturing men and woman, he was shocked at the Kings intentions.
Think you are the highest sun? I'll prove you wrong!
But, when Daedalus asked for his money the King refused. And instead said that he and his son will stay in the Island and serve him. But...In luxury? Only during the day of course. They were given beautiful lavish clothes but soon to waste during their labor.
Daedalus came up with the idea of making wings to actually fly away from the dreaded island! His son actually, enjoyed living there. But Daedalus knew they needed to leave. He gave one warning to his son Icarus, "Don't fly too close to the sun!" And he pushed his son off the window and he went flying!
Daedalus has made the wings out of wax from candles, which means if anyone flies to close to the sun they will end up meeting death. But Icarus was just feeling himself too much, which ended him to close to the sun.
T-they are flying away??!!
Instead of following his father's words, the wax melted off the fake wings of Icarus and he went falling into the sea. Leaving his father who has no hope in saving him. All he could do was to see once proud Icarus falling into the sea, which the wings were the only thing left floating on the water.
