Meeting with a mentor
The King wanted to pursue Perseus' mother's hand in marriage. He told Perseus he had to bring a wedding gift for a different wedding, Perseus promised to get anything for a wedding gift. The King said he needed to bring him the severed head of Medusa herself!
Crossing The Threshold
Perseus began to have doubts about the task given to him. He begins to think about the legend of medusa, and how she was so ugly she could turn anyone to stone with a look. He thinks that he might die if made to follow through.
Test, Allies, and Enemies
Suddenly help appears! Some of the gods, namely Athena and Hermes, came down from Mount Olympus and bestowed gifts unto Perseus! These gifts were a shiny shield that could be used as a mirror and an unbreakable sword to pierce Medusa's scales
As part of the gods help, Hermes leads Perseus to The Gray, an area where nothing lives except for three old ladies sharing one eye. At first they don't want to tell Perseus anything... Perseus can be persuasive in the sense that the Three have a stealable eye...
Using the weapons given by the Gods, Perseus was able to defeat Medusa. After doing this, Perseus took her head for the wedding gift. After the"headless excitement" he began his journey back home.
