The Thread is the magical ball of twine that Theseus used to navigate his way through The Labyrinth.


Originally used by Theseus to navigate himself through the Labyrinth, it was later taken by Golden Axe Food Company to re-create The Labyrinth. It was later used by Ezekiel Jones and Cassandra Cillian to escape the Labyrinth.[1]


  • Navigation: The Thread navigated Theseus through the Labyrinth.

  • The Golden Axe Food Company used a collection of rare Minoan artifacts to focus the power of the Thread creating the labyrinth.
  • It can be used to repair the Loom of Fate, if the latter is damaged by an external threat.
  • The Theseus-Ariadne relationship is a classic example of the price of magic, since Theseus promised but failed to take Minos' daughter (Ariadne) with him when he escaped, and she cursed him in response. The price was Theseus' failure to change the sail on his ship from black to white, causing his father to commit suicide at this pre-arranged signal of Theseus' death.
