Your Field Guide to Spotting Medea

Whoa, you’re looking for Medea? We don’t get a lot of requests for her. She’s most famous for killing her own children after her husband, Jason, left her for another woman. She did have a right to be ticked off, but that just seems more than a little overboard. Anyway, she was a mortal, so you’ll have to take a shuttle down to the Underworld if you want to have a chat. But be careful. She’s a really good sorceress with a really bad temper, so you definitely don’t want to get on her bad side.
