Case File: Medusa vs. Perseus

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Medusa) accuses Defendant (Perseus) of aggravated assault and armed robbery. Medusa alleges that Perseus chopped off her head and then stole it.

Case Status: Dismissed. No one liked Medusa, so whatever. Anyway, her death resulted in the birth of Pegasus who leaped from her body after Perseus lopped off her head. Losing Medusa and gaining Pegasus seems like a win-win to us. Full details are filed away in the myth of Perseus and Medusa.
