The Heroes

The heroes were the fourth race of mankind (for the previous races, click here).  They were the sons of the gods, who undertook incredible adventures and defeated powerful monsters, and sometimes even the gods themselves.  My main source for the heroes is Apollodorus'  Bibliotece.  The heroic tales that I shall cover are:

Perseus

Heracles

Theseus

Jason and Argonauts

Peleus
