"Hi. I'm Heracles, son of, the big guy himself, Zeus and (sadly) Hera. She's jealous of me. I'm a hero. You know, fighting monsters, saving the world, (Earth and Mt. Olympus, my home) etc. etc. My first victory was against two of her goons, two snakes (two fun play toys). Later on my so-called mom drove me off the deep end, making me kill my kids. Now because of that I've got to do some "Labors" for my cousin, Eurystheus. He's a king. I should have been king, but mom tricked dad into making him king.
My first Labor was to kill the Nemean Lion, a lion that's skin can't be penetrated by spears or arrows. I blocked his cave off and throttled it with my bare hands. Now I always wear his skin as a cloak, and his jaw's as a helmet. My next labor was my hardest. I had to beat the many headed Hydra. My nephew, Iolaus, drove me to its lair. I started by driving the Hydra out with flaming arrows. Unfortunately, the Hydra then coiled it's necks around me. And to make matters worse, when I chopped one of it's heads off, two more grew in its place! Soon, Iolaus dashed into the fight. Once I chopped off a head, he burned it with his torch, stopping it from growing! Finally, I chopped off the main head and buried it deep beneath a rock! The battle was over! After six other labors, I had to capture the Mares of Diomedes. These mares feasted on travelers that accepted Diomedes hospitality. In one version I fed them there own master (must have been yummy!). Finally I died because of Hydra venom. Now I'm a god. Now the tour is over.
"Hello! My name is Theseus. I'm a hero and my grandfather and father are kings. To prove that I was a hero I had to lift a bolder to find a gift from my father. It turned out to be a sword and other tokens! I decided to take a path on land despite my mothers wanting me to go by a safer route, the sea. During my trip I overcame many villains one-by-one. But when I got to the castle, the first meeting was much less than heartwarming. This woman, named Medea, got worried that I might become king instead of her daughter becoming queen. So she made the king give me some poison wine. Luckily, I pulled out my sword. My father saw the sword and knocked the wine away. Now I had to go kill the feared Minotaur (half bull and half man). Once I got their, I was imprisoned in the Labyrinth, the feared home of the Minotaur. I had to find my way through the Labyrinth and finish the job that my cousin, Heracules, had to do and kill the Minotaur. After many other battles, I had to go to the Underworld. Here I met my defeat.
