No one knows me as Daedalus, only Quintus. They think that Daedalus is dead, and I'm just a mysterious swords man. I'm curtain that Chiron and Percy are suspicious about my past, but that I must not reveal. My beloved hellhound, Mrs. O'Leary throws them off, for they know that Daedalus did not own a giant black mastiffas a pet. The only story I can ever reveal about my past is Icarus. Oh Icarus, you were all I lived for. Losing you would've killed me from guilt if it wasn't for my dear Mrs. O'Leary.
