ITT we talk about our favorite legends. I'll start.
My favorite myth from Greek legend is the tale of Sisyphus. Guy had some serious balls. He went and trapped Thanatos (basically the grim reaper) and kept people from dying for a time.
Then the gods got pissed, set Thanatos free, and punished Sisyphus by having him roll a big rock up a hill, only to have it fall back down, and do it again and again until death.
Shit makes for a great tragic hero story. Guy was literally saving lives, only to get punished for life because he stepped out of line. Not all heroes wear capes I guess.
