The Story of Oedipus Antigone

Oedipus's daughter may not play a major role in the story of her dear old dad/brother, but she definitely is already showing the signs of the tough lady she'll become. When Oedipus is exiled from Thebes, Antigone steps up to the plate and guides him through the wilderness. Despite the hardships involved, Antigone steps up to do what's right. This is just the sort of thing that gets her into so much trouble later on.
