(Greek Mortal) HIPPOLYTUS

Also known as HYPPOLYTA, HYPPOLYTE, HIPPOLYTOS

The son of Theseus and Hippolyta.

When Hippolyta popped her clogs, Theseus married the daughter of King Minos, but Hippolytus had grown into a strapping lad and Phaedras quite fancied a bit of him herself.

Hippolytus knocked back Phaedras advances but hell hath no fury like a woman scorned and after having her ego seriously bruised she wrote a letter to Theseus claiming he had seduced her, then promptly hung herself.

A furious Theseus had already used one of three curses given to him by Poseidon and summoned a sea monster to drag an innocent Hippolytus to his doom before Artemis had a chance to tell him that Phaedra was, in fact, a lying bitch.

He was brought back to life by Asclepius but it didn't last long. The Gods didn't approve of miracle cures and a thunderbolt from Zeus struck Asclepius off the doctors register and rendered Hippolytus dead for a second and final time.
