Profile Picture

In a land far away, in a place known as Greece, there are great heros. And once upon a time, a youth named Jason was born. Chiron, the king centaur, took him up to raise him. With Chiron, Jason learned how to hunt, and how to be a hero, because Chiron knew that Jason was under careful watch of Hera. Hera was the goddess of marriage and the queen of the gods. Then when Jason grew up, years later, he went on a quest to find the Golden Fleece of Poseidon. He got together a group of other heros that lived in Greece to go with him.
