Case File: Odysseus vs. Circe

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Odysseus) accuses Defendant (Circe) of murder and unlawful transformation. When Odysseus landed on Aeaea, Circe's island, the witch waved her magic wand and turned Odysseus' men into pigs.

Case Status: Case dismissed. After getting some advice from Hermes, Odysseus took a potion that made him resistant to Circe's power. Afterward, Odysseus poured on the charm and Circe transformed the hero's posse back into men. Odysseus and his buddies ended up staying on Aeaea for a year, feasting and basically chilling out.
