Half man, half bull. The offspring of the Queen of Crete and a white bull that was supposed to be sacrificed to Poseidon, but wasn't. Poseidon, angry at the King of Crete, cursed the Queen with an unnatural lust for the disputed bull. She had a false cow built, climbed into it and...nine months later the monstrous baby Minotaur was born. Had a steady diet of human flesh, usually seven virgin men and seven virgin girls from Athens as tax, and run of a giant underground maze. Was finally killed by a lad named Theseus, a prince of Athens that was sent as tribute after being picked by lots.
