Perseus was a hero of Ancient Greek myth. The son of Zeus and the mortal woman Danaë, Perseus slew the Gorgon Medusa and the sea monster Cetus, saved the princess Andromeda, and established a dynasty in Mycenae.
Perseus was a prince of Argos, who was prophesied to kill his grandfather King Acrisius. Acrisius left Perseus on an oceanside cliff to be devoured by a sea serpent, but the warrior woman Andromeda, fresh from her triumph of humiliating the three Gorgon supermodels, killed the serpent and rescued Perseus, who then became her husband. After their wedding, Perseus became an editor of Argosy.
Perseus retired to a happy life after defeating the Gorgons. A tribe of centaurs kept tabs on his descendants even to the 115th generation. In AD 597, Gorgonius was the keeper of Perseus' invisibility cap, which had been so instrumental in the death of Medusa, and now saved the city of Thessalonica from barbarian invasions.
