Daedalus is a character from Hercules: The Animated Series. He is the son of Athena and is the creator of the Lambrinth. A great inventor, he is the father of Icarus, who refers to him as "Dadalus", and the shop teacher at Prometheus Academy. His brilliance is matched only by his own ego and eccentric behavior, which causes him to get along poorly with others. He has a very poor relationship with his son's friend Hercules, due to his clumsy and poor performance when it comes to building things.
Hercules, after failing several times in Shop Class, becomes fed up and quits, calling it useless and thus insulting Icarus. Meanwhile, Hades forms an alliance with his brother Poseidon to move the River Styx (the edge of Hades' domain) to include Greece. All the heroes are punished by Hades with what they hate most - for Hercules, Shop Class. Now, with Hades ruling Greece, the Underworld and the Seas, Hercules must take back his comments about Shop and use Daedalus' teachings to stop Hades.
