Case File: Chariclo vs. Heracles

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Chariclo) accuses defendant (Heracles) of first degree murder for shooting her husband, Chiron, with an arrow poisoned with Hydra venom.

Case Status: Case dismissed. The understanding Chiron asked his wife to drop the charges because he knew that the shooting was an accident. Additionally, it couldn't have been murder because Chiron voluntarily chose to give up his immortality due to the horrible pain of the Hydra venom. As his last act before ascending to the stars, the gracious centaur gifted his immortality to Prometheus.
