Your Field Guide to Spotting Daedalus

Daedalus' workshop is down in Elysium, the city of the blessed dead. You can't really miss it—the place is surrounded by Daedalus' fabulous creations. There are tons of statues so realistic that they look like they could come to life. Come to think of it, don't be surprised if a couple of them actually do. After all, the D-man also has a knack for building automatons (old-school robots). Also, the air around his workshop is surrounded by his flying machines. Icarus, Daedalus' daredevil son, is always up there testing them out (doesn't matter if he falls again—he's already dead!). But be careful walking the halls of Daedalus' workshop. He's modeled the whole thing after the Labyrinth he designed on Crete, so it's a total maze. You'll know Daedalus when you see him: he'll be the guy with crazy Einstein hair, a worn-in tool belt, and the spark of genius in his eyes.
