Athens had been subjugated by Crete after the war between cities. It was prompted by the murder of Minos' son while he was visiting the kingdom of King Aegeus. As part of the peace treaty, Athens had to send 14 youngsters every year as a tribute. They would then be taken to the infamous labyrinth where they would be sacrificed to the dreaded Minotaur. The creature was half-man and half-bull.
When Theseus became aware of the situation, he was determined to put an end to it by slaying the terrifying creature. So, he volunteered to go with the youngsters and promised to return with them all after annihilating the beast. King Aegeus tried to get him to give up on the idea, but Theseus' mind was made up.
So, they set the sails and departed for Crete. When they arrived, they were taken to the king's palace, where Princess Ariadne instantly fell in love with Theseus.
Later that night, she visited him in the dungeons and gave him a sword to slay the beast and yarn of wool to help him find his way out of the labyrinth. He then embarked on his mission into the dark labyrinth, unraveling the yarn with every turn. Sometimes, he would hear the creature snorting as it lurked in the shadows. The floors and walls of the labyrinth were covered in blood. He was confident that his blood would not color the floor red.
In an unexpected attack, the Minotaur appeared and tried to kill Theseus, but he managed to dodge every strike. With one devastating counterattack, Theseus managed to kill the beast and with that ended the creature's reign of terror.
