The Hounds Of Actaeon Story Detail
Young Actaeon was raised by the centaur Chiron to be a skilled warrior and hunter, but Actaeon ignored his lessons and, instead, grew up to spend his life hunting only for the glory of the kill, with his faithful hunting hounds by his side. When the White Stag prevents Actaeon from capturing a bear in his traps, he vows to hunt down the great beast, and to wear its white coat on his back. Actaeon and his hounds track down the stag and engage it in a furious battle, unaware that Artemis, goddess of the hunt, longs to avenge Actaeon for his ruthless killing of her forest animals. Using her magic, Artemis causes the great beast to magically meld with Actaeon. Now, the human hunter, having been transformed into the White Stag, must survive among the forest creatures while his fellow hunters and his own hounds hunt him down. To survive, Actaeon must learn to appreciate the value of the very animals that he used to heedlessly kill. In the end, he risks his own life to save his stag family, and this selfless deed prompts Artemis to return him to his human form.
