This only bought Razgriz a second of time, because Zeck jumped at the Vy'keen as quickly as Razgriz did the Korvax, preventing any talking from being done. The free Vy'keen pulled on Zeck, simultaneously causing his quills to stab into his hand, and pulling the Vy'keen that Zeck had latched onto down through the hole where the ladder was, dragging all three of them awkwardly down the hole. Honestly, Razgriz just wanted to get down to help Zeck. It was pure luck that he had distracted both of the Vy'keen like that.

Wanting to finish the night, Razgriz shot both of the Korvax's knees and left him laying on the ground, incapacitated, then jumped down to help Zeck. Landing with ease, thanks to the exosuit's jetpack, Razgriz looked around, turning to see that one Vy'keen stood, holding Zeck with a gun to his head, and the other recovering from being knocked down, and clearly being the one who had its hand stabbed.

Razgriz felt afraid. Afraid that Zeck was going to die and that all this time spent on this planet had meant nothing, but then, shocking the traveller, two Korvax, some of the prisoners, came behind the Vy'keen and head-butted them both, cracking the glass on their heads, but knocking the pirates out too. Razgriz smiled again. Some local bounty hunters came to deliver the pirates all to prison soon after, and others came to pick up all the prisoners. Razgriz tried to help repair the Korvax's screens, helping a bit, but didn't really have anywhere to go. After looking through the pirates' things, Razgriz found that there were twelve types of species brought to this planet, now known to be called Elysium.

Razgriz had grown fond of the planet, despite being stuck there for so long, and maybe partly because of it. Not wanting to leave anymore, Razgriz decided to bring more of each species to the planet to populate it. The Korvax pirate had been seeing how long each species could survive with monitors on them, including one on Razgriz, but luckily it hadn't had any visual scanners of any sort, only monitors for the creatures themselves as the Korvax, judging by its notes, seemed enthused at the idea of trying to figure out, only based on this data, what creatures or hazards killed each animal, sickening, Razgriz thought.

The idea to bring more animals came from here. Instead of being condemned to death here, they could start a new life that was much more forgiving. Razgriz brought the animals in large groups, finding their homes using the pirates' information, and within no time the planet was teeming with life. The small bodies of water were filled with fish and the land was filled with new life too, even trees started to grow, though Razgriz never brought them to Red Elysium, now named for its newfound bright red grass. To study new plants, Razgriz changed the old pirate base into a farm, maintaining some NipNip, but adding in new plants and glass domes to replace the metal ones, and finally building a landing pad as well.

The final addition was the traveller's favourite; an additional floor was built, two stories higher than the second floor, which was already two stories higher than the first, with simple supports between each. This new floor had two glass domes to simply look out of. Razgriz watched the partially obscured sunset light the sky up red with the grass reflecting more redness into the dome.

Animals ran around everywhere around this new Arcadia.

This page was last edited on 13 February , at Eurystheus even had a large bronze jar made for him in which to hide from Hercules if need be. Eurystheus then warned him that the tasks would become increasingly difficult. Hercules' second labour was to slay the Lernaean Hydra , which Hera had raised just to slay Hercules.

Upon reaching the swamp near Lake Lerna , where the Hydra dwelt, Hercules used a cloth to cover his mouth and nose to protect himself from the poisonous fumes.

He fired flaming arrows into the Hydra's lair, the spring of Amymone , a deep cave that it only came out of to terrorize neighboring villages. Ruck and Staples have pointed out that the chthonic creature's reaction was botanical: upon cutting off each of its heads he found that two grew back, an expression of the hopelessness of such a struggle for any but the hero. Additionally, one of the hydra's heads was immortal. The details of the struggle are explicit in the Bibliotheca 2.

His nephew then came upon the idea possibly inspired by Athena of using a firebrand to scorch the neck stumps after each decapitation. Hercules cut off each head and Iolaus cauterized the open stumps. Seeing that Hercules was winning the struggle, Hera sent a giant crab to distract him. He crushed it under his mighty foot. He cut off the Hydra's one immortal head with a golden sword given to him by Athena.

Hercules placed it under a great rock on the sacred way between Lerna and Elaius Kerenyi , and dipped his arrows in the Hydra's poisonous blood, and so his second task was complete. The alternative version of this myth is that after cutting off one head he then dipped his sword in it and used its venom to burn each head so it could not grow back. Hera, upset that Hercules had slain the beast she raised to kill him, placed it in the dark blue vault of the sky as the constellation Hydra.

She then turned the crab into the constellation Cancer. Later, Hercules used an arrow dipped in the Hydra's poisonous blood to kill the centaur Nessus ; and Nessus's tainted blood was applied to the Tunic of Nessus , by which the centaur had his posthumous revenge. Both Strabo and Pausanias report that the stench of the river Anigrus in Elis , making all the fish of the river inedible, was reputed to be due to the Hydra's poison, washed from the arrows Hercules used on the centaur.

For the third labour, they found a task which they thought would spell doom for the hero. It was not slaying a beast or monster, as it had already been established that Hercules could overcome even the most fearsome opponents. Instead, Eurystheus ordered him to capture the Ceryneian Hind , which was so fast that it could outrun an arrow.

After beginning the search, Hercules awoke from sleeping and saw the hind by the glint on its antlers. Hercules then chased the hind on foot for a full year through Greece , Thrace , Istria , and the land of the Hyperboreans. In some versions, he captured the hind while it slept, rendering it lame with a trap net. In other versions, he encountered Artemis in her temple; she told him to leave the hind and tell Eurystheus all that had happened, and his third labor would be considered to be completed. Yet another version claims that Hercules trapped the Hind with an arrow between its forelegs.

Eurystheus had given Hercules this task hoping to incite Artemis's anger at Hercules for his desecration of her sacred animal. As he was returning with the hind, Hercules encountered Artemis and her brother Apollo. He begged the goddess for forgiveness, explaining that he had to catch it as part of his penance, but he promised to return it. Artemis forgave him, foiling Eurystheus' plan to have her punish him. Upon bringing the hind to Eurystheus, he was told that it was to become part of the King's menagerie. Hercules knew that he had to return the hind as he had promised, so he agreed to hand it over on the condition that Eurystheus himself come out and take it from him.

The King came out, but the moment that Hercules let the hind go, it sprinted back to its mistress, and Hercules left saying that Eurystheus had not been quick enough.

Eurystheus was disappointed that Hercules had overcome yet another creature and was humiliated by the Hind's escape, so he assigned Hercules another dangerous task. By some accounts, the fourth labour was to bring the fearsome Erymanthian Boar back to Eurystheus alive there is no single definitive telling of the labours. On the way to Mount Erymanthos where the Boar lived, Hercules visited Pholus "caveman" , a kind and hospitable centaur and old friend.

Hercules ate with Pholus in his cavern though the centaur devoured his meat raw and asked for wine. Pholus had only one jar of wine, a gift from Dionysus to all the centaurs on Mount Erymanthos. Hercules convinced him to open it, and the smell attracted the other centaurs. They did not understand that wine needs to be tempered with water, became drunk, and attacked Hercules. Hercules shot at them with his poisonous arrows, killing many, and the centaurs retreated all the way to Chiron 's cave.

Pholus was curious why the arrows caused so much death. He picked one up but dropped it, and the arrow stabbed his foot, poisoning him. One version states that a stray arrow hit Chiron as well; Chiron was immortal, but he still felt the pain. Chiron's pain was so great that he volunteered to give up his immortality and take the place of Prometheus , who had been chained to the top of a mountain to have his liver eaten daily by an eagle , although he was an immortal Titan.

Prometheus' torturer, the eagle, continued its torture on Chiron, so Hercules shot it dead with an arrow. It is generally accepted that the tale was meant to show Hercules as being the recipient of Chiron's surrendered immortality. However, this tale contradicts the fact that Chiron later taught Achilles.


The tale of the Centaurs sometimes appears in other parts of the twelve labours, as does the freeing of Prometheus. Hercules had visited Chiron to gain advice on how to catch the Boar, and Chiron had told him to drive it into thick snow, which sets this labour in mid-winter. Hercules caught the Boar, bound it, and carried it back to Eurystheus, who was frightened of it and ducked down in his half-buried storage pithos , begging Hercules to get rid of the beast.

The fifth labour was to clean the stables of King Augeas.

This assignment was intended to be both humiliating rather than impressive, as the previous labours had been and impossible, since the livestock were divinely healthy and immortal and therefore produced an enormous quantity of dung. However, Hercules succeeded by re-routing the rivers Alpheus and Peneus to wash out the filth. Before starting on the task, Hercules had asked Augeas for one-tenth of the cattle if he finished the task in one day, and Augeas agreed.

But afterwards Augeas refused to honour the agreement on the grounds that Hercules had been ordered to carry out the task by Eurystheus anyway. Hercules claimed his reward in court, and was supported by Augeas' son Phyleus. Augeas banished them both before the court had ruled. Hercules returned, slew Augeas, and gave his kingdom to Phyleus. The success of this labour was ultimately discounted as the rushing waters had done the work of cleaning the stables and because Hercules was paid for it.

Eurystheus said that Hercules still had seven labours to perform. The sixth labour was to defeat the Stymphalian birds , man-eating birds with beaks of bronze and sharp metallic feathers they could launch at their victim. They were sacred to Ares , the god of war. Furthermore, their dung was highly toxic.

They had migrated to Lake Stymphalia in Arcadia , where they bred quickly and took over the countryside, destroying local crops, fruit trees, and townspeople. Hercules could not go too far into the swamp, for it would not support his weight. Athena , noticing the hero's plight, gave Hercules a rattle which Hephaestus had made especially for the occasion. Hercules shook the rattle and frightened the birds into the air.

Hercules then shot many of them with his arrows. The rest flew far away, never to return. The Argonauts would later encounter them. The seventh labour was to capture the Cretan Bull. Hercules sailed to Crete , where King Minos gave Hercules permission to take the Bull away and even offered him assistance which Hercules declined plausibly because he did not want the labor to be discounted as before.

Hercules snuck up behind the Bull and then used his hands to throttle it stopping before it was killed , and then shipped it back to Tiryns. Eurystheus, who hid in his pithos at first sight of the creature, wanted to sacrifice the Bull to Hera, who hated Hercules. She refused the sacrifice because it reflected glory on Hercules. The Bull was released and wandered into Marathon , becoming known as the Marathonian Bull.

Labours of Hercules

The eighth labour was to bring back the Mares of Diomedes , which had been trained to eat human flesh by their owner, King Diomedes of Thrace. In one version of the story, Hercules brought a number of youths to help him. They took the mares, called Podargos "swift-footed" , Lampon "the shining" , Xanthos "the blond" , and Deinos "the terrible" , [12] and were chased by Diomedes and his men. Hercules was not aware that the horses were kept tethered to a bronze manger because they were wild; their madness being attributed to an unnatural diet of human flesh.

They were man-eating and uncontrollable, and Hercules left his favoured companion, Abderus , in charge of them while he fought Diomedes, and found out that the boy was eaten. Atalanta and her husband, overcome with passion, made love in a shrine of the goddess Cybele or of Zeus , for which they were turned into lions.
