However, Athena was under the orders of Zeus. Perseus used it to sneak into Andromeda's room where he witnessed her spirit being taken away by a giant vulture. He then uses it again the next night but follows the vulture to Calibos' Lair. There, he witnesses Calibos giving Andromeda's Spirit a new riddle. This is a scam In the end, Calibos figures out that Perseus is there and attacks him, but Perseus manages to escape.
