Case File: Daphne vs. Apollo

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Daphne) accuses Defendant (Apollo) of harassment. Thanks to Eros' arrow, Apollo fell madly in love with the naiad, Daphne. The god chased her all around the place, until Daphne's dad, a river god, changed her into a laurel tree.

Case Status: Case closed. Apollo feels super bad about what happened and made the laurel his sacred tree. (This did not necessarily make Daphne feel better.)
