Theseus: Birth and Early Adventures Sciron

Advertisement - Guide continues below


The fourth villain encountered and slain by Theseus on the way to Athens. This guy got his kicks by convincing passersby to wash his feet, after which he kicked them over a cliff to be devoured by a sea monster, which some say was a giant turtle. Why did Sciron choose giant-carnivorous-turtle-feeding as his hobby? No one knows. Maybe, his parents didn't let him watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when he was a kid. Just like most of the other villains that Theseus meets on the way to Athens, Theseus kills Sciron using the bad guy's own methods. So in the end, Sciron becomes turtle food.
