Arrogant, aggressive, prone to fits of rage. King Aegeus of Athens is, quite frankly, a real jerk.
Groomed to rule, Aegeus always believed he held the key to the Lexicon, a secret code that allows humans to enter the gates of Olympus. Upon having a son, the Lexicon left Aegeus for his first born, causing him to lose some of his luster - and officially tipped his ratio of speaking to screaming in favor of the latter. Thankfully, his wife Medea tolerates him.
