Iphigenia Rising

A Little Bit Iphy

Once upon a time, there was this little thing called the Trojan War. You’re familiar with it, yes?
Before that whole decade-long mess could even get started, the Greeks had to follow Helen across the Aegean Sea to Troy. Unfortunately for them, Agamemnon had angered the goddess Artemis. People are kind of fuzzy on the details of how he offended her. Either he killed a sacred deer, or his troops did. Artemis is the goddess of the hunt, so that’s obviously a no-no. Or he boasted about being a better hunter than Artemis, or his troops did. Also a stupid idea. Anyway, Artemis wasn’t happy, so she sent a contrary wind to the port at Aulis, where the Greeks were preparing to sail from and kept them from leaving for the war.
The only way to get the wind set straight and appease Artemis was for Agamemnon to sacrifice his eldest daughter
