Antigone was a total rebel. The best kind, too. She'd always do what was right--no matter what. When her brothers, Polyneices and Eteocles, killed each other fighting over the throne of Thebes, her uncle Creon declared that Eteocles would be buried with all the proper rites, while Polyneices would be left for the dogs and buzzards (um... gross). Antigone wasn't going to have that, though. She buried Polyneices, even though it meant her death. How did Antigone get so tough? We're guessing that spending her formative years in exile guiding her blind dad/brother Oedipus around might've had something to do with it. However you shake it, Antigone was one tough girl.
