An Athenian storyteller and his dog take shelter in the labyrinth of Knossos. There he recounts the story of the minotaur confined to the maze by King Minos ten centuries earlier. When the young hero Theseus came of age, he began walking the heroes path. Reclaiming his rightful place as the son of Athenian king Aegeus, Theseus insisted in traveling to Crete to face the dreaded minotaur. Written by

Theseus, son of Aegeus, bullslayer, king of Athens. Many nights he would dream of wondering through the winding corridors of his palace. Looking as he had done once before for a monster to kill. But in the dream, it was always his mother, or his father, or his wife he killed. And when he caught his own reflection, he had the monster's face.
