Tragedy of Ebrima Jawara, the

The Tragedy of Ebrima Jawara is an ancient and popular minotaur play that is performed with elaborate masks. Ebrima Jawara, the main character, is a priest of the Death God.

In the play, Ebrima creates a map showing all the secrets of his labyrinth to earn the affection of Ariadne, the beautiful daughter of his king. Ariadne rewards Ebrima with a kiss, but suddenly reveals herself to be the Death God’s corporal form. With the kiss, Ebrima’s soul is ripped from his body and destroyed. Now an undead wight, he is thereafter banished to the Underworld to suffer until the end of time.

Most Minotaur consider this play a work of fiction designed to teach moral lessons to their great nation. Some historians, however, believe that there could be some truth to the story, connecting it to the mysterious sealing of the labyrinths and the new mazes that would replace them about a millennium ago.
