Your Field Guide to Spotting Creon

You know, not a lot of people come around here asking for Creon. He's been pretty unpopular ever since he walled up his niece Antigone in a tomb. Well, really he wasn't too popular before that either. Everybody always thought of him as kind of a sneaky, bureaucratic politician. Still, he's totally worth talking to. He's seen some pretty crazy stuff, after all: the Sphinx attack, the plague, the Oedipus scandal, the civil war—chances are this guy has some stories to tell. If you want to set up a meeting with him, you'll have to call his office down in Elysium, the city of the blessed dead.
