King Midas

The King with the Golden Touch

Midas was a wealthy King of Greek, who loved counting his hoard of golden riches. However, his vast riches were not enough and sought a trade with the gods. The Gods saw Midas Midas as a naive king and granted him a devious wish. He traded is vast fortune for the power to turn anything he touched into Gold. Midas rejoiced in his new power, which he hastened to put to the test. He touched an oak twig and a stone; both turned to gold. Overjoyed, as soon as he got home, he touched every rose in the rose garden, and all became gold. He ordered the servants to set a feast on the table. Upon discovering how even the food and drink turned into gold in his hands, he regretted his wish and cursed it. Midas's daughter, Lydia, came to him, upset about the roses that had lost their fragrance and become hard, and when he reached out to comfort her, found that when he touched his daughter, she turned to gold as well. Now, Midas hated the gift he had coveted. He prayed to God's to take it away, but they laughed at the foolish king.

Enraged at his curse and the loss of his daughter, Midas vowed revenge on the gods. He had his servants feed food directly to his mouth and began training his "Golden touch" into a powerful magic. With golden armor and a flail he began his quest for revenge.
