1st real Greek hero. Killer of Medusa, and thus gave power to Zeus aegis and freed the horse Pegasus. Married to Andromeda and a myth about that.


Meio-sangue (Semi-deus)

Perseu, foi o herói que decapitou a Medusa, monstro que transformava em pedra qualquer um que olhasse em seus olhos. Perseu era filho de Zeus, que sob a forma de uma chuva de ouro, introduziu-se na torre de bronze e engravidou Danae a filha mortal do rei de Argos.
