General Overview

The first minotaur was born to Queen Pasiphae of Crete and a Kreten Bull. As it aged, the queen placed the Minotaur in a maze called the Labyrinth which was used to cage the beast. Young women and men would be sent as sacrifices to the Minotaur to satisfy its needs. In the end, the Minotaur was slain by the hero Theseus. After that, there have been other Minotaurs that have been born from women mating with bulls in ancient times. These Minotaurs have disappeared, either being locked away in a maze or a artifact or they are hiding away from society.

Historical Synopsis

THE MINOTAUROS (Minotaur) was a bull-headed monster born to Queen Pasiphae of Krete (Crete) after she coupled with a bull. The creature resided in the twisting maze of the labyrinth where it was offered a regular sacrifice of youths and maidens to satisfy its cannibalistic hunger. The beast was eventually slain by the hero Theseus.

The Minotauros' proper name Asterion, "the starry one," suggests he might have been associated with the constellation Tauros.[1]
