Bellerophon was a great Greek hero.


Athena once gave a magic bridle (once used by Perseus) to Bellerophon to help him in his task of killing the Chimaera. Later, Bellerophon tried to ride Pegasus up Mount Olympus, but the winged horse threw him off down the mountain and escaped. Bellerophon did not live happily ever after. He was doomed to spend the rest of his life wandering the world as an outcast, lame and shunned by all.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The story of Bellerophon, Pegasus (born of the snake-haired Medusa) and the magic bridle inspired the puzzle in KQ2, requiring the player to use the bridle on a viper to rescue the winged horse.
