Killed By Hera

Medea was a young woman born with the remarkable ability to heal mortal wounds. She lived in a village with her mother and stepfather but left home after her stepfather violated her and her mother was unable to stop it. Medea then made a bargain with Hera. She would help the goddess by causing a rift between Hercules and Jason. Once the two friends were separated, Hera's monster the Ghidra would be able to kill Hercules. After becoming involved with both Hercules and Jason, Medea had a change of heart. She saved Jason's life and brought the heroes back together so they could defeat the Ghidra. In response, Hera made her disappear.


Background informationEdit
