Monsters Of The Mind Story Detail
Siegfried, Roy, Rumplestiltskin and Manticore avoid being slaughtered by the beast Grendel when King Midas' son, Prince Mallory, makes a heroic entrance, doing what his father cannot: rid the countrieside of Grendel. Meanwhile, our heroes deliver the magic water to King Midas, but before he can drink, he accidentally touches his daughter, turning her into a golden statue. Suddenly, Grendel bursts into the castle and makes off with her on his shoulder, hurling Siegfried and Roy aside like toy soldiers. Our heroes journey to the monster's lair to save the princess. However, their dangerous quest into the center of the earth reveals much. It turns out Grendel isn't the horrific beast that he appears. Instead, he's a gentle giant whose sustenance, the very gold in the earth, has been drained by the power of the golden touch that Midas has been using above ground. Without the gold "food," his own mother lies dying. Grendel sadly admits that he made a pact with Prince Mallory. If he pretended to attack the town and allow the Prince to drive him away, he would be paid secretly in gold... and thus, his mother might be saved. Siegfried and Roy realize that Prince Mallory has been overtaken by the entity of Pride, and that he's doing its bidding as he tries to usurp his own father's throne. They use the waters of Pactolus to return Princess Estella to her human form, and promise that Grendel that the king will gladly give him all the gold he can carry when they return her unharmed.
