Your Field Guide to Spotting Antigone

You'll have to head down to the Underworld to have a chat with Antigone, but if you're up for the journey, you should totally go for it. From her days spent wandering the wilderness with her exiled dad/brother, Oedipus, to her time rebelling against her uncle/great uncle, Creon, Antigone has no shortage of crazy stories to tell. Don't let her reputation for being hard to get along with deter you, either. Antigone was just the kind of gal who always stood up for what she thought was right, no matter the consequences. Sure her stubbornness is what landed her in the Underworld, but it's also what makes her one cool young lady.
