Case File: Zeus vs. Phineus

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Zeus) accuses Defendant (Phineus) of having a big mouth. Phineus could see into the future like nobody's business. Unfortunately, he went around telling too many people too much of what was in store for them, which seriously ticked off Zeus.

Case Status: Case closed. Zeus punished Phineus by striking him blind and sending the Harpies to torment him. Every time Phineus sat down to eat a tasty meal, the Harpies would swoop down from the sky, snatch all his food, and poop on the crumbs.
