The Minotauros or Minotaur was an infamous demonic creature dwelling in the Cretan Labyrinth.
It was a bull-headed man; the son of Pasiphae, when she coupled with the Cretan bull. The Minotaur is a half-bull half-man by birth and was created through Cretan Bull and Pasiphae’s peculiar union.
This atypical creation of the Minotaur resulted from Minos’s hubris, the uncontrollable anger of Poseidon, and Pasiphae’s eternal lust. King Minos jailed this demon-like creature inside the labyrinth of the Minotaur, a complex maze structure. King Minos had Daedalus, in Knossos, build this mythological structure to hide the half-man and half-bull Minotaur from the public view. During his command, the King sent 14 young boys and lasses as a tribute to quench this demonic beast’s cannibalistic hunger. This ghastly ritual came to an end with a ghastly fight by the greatest Athenian hero Theseus, inside the minotaur maze. He finally defeated and killed the evil beast, with the aid of Ariadne. This is the tale of Theseus and the Minotaur.
In the extremely popular fantasy tabletop role-playing game, Dungeons & Dragons (D&D), Minotaurs make an extraordinary group of barrel-chested humanoid fighters, with horns in their head, raising commotions. Some are fierce, vibrant, while some are a (bit) sober.
