When Minos refuses to sacrifice a white bull to the sea god, Poseidon, Poseidon exacts a terrible revenge by causing Minos's wife, Pasiphae, to fall in love with the bull and conceive the minotaur.

Consumed by a growing anger over what he feels to be a great injustice by Poseidon, Minos's anger evolves into a deep despair that becomes fueled by hatred toward the Greeks, when his son, Androgeos, is murdered at the Olympic games in Athens.
