The Minotaur was a hybrid beast created by the Isu as part of the Olympos project. A large creature possessing the body of a man and the head and fur of a bull, the Minotaur was kept within a great labyrinth beneath the Knossos Palace, in Messara, Crete.
Legend of the Minotaur's existence long outlasted its creators, and by the 5th century BCE, the Greek mythology held that it had been born from the union of the Kretan Bull and Pasiphaë. An iteration of the beast had been slain by the Greek hero Theseus.
By the time of the Peloponnesian War, the myth of the creature had spellbound the people of Pephka, and they had turned the city of Lato into a shrine to the beast, erecting statues of it and even emblazoning their banners with its visage.
At some point during the 5th century BCE, the misthios Kassandra hunted down and defeated another iteration of the creature in her quest to retrieve the artifact that seemingly gave the creature life. After defeating the Minotaur and claiming its prize, the transformation was undone, leaving behind a desiccated corpse.
