The Monster in the Maze

So the heroine and companions are set in a -- sorta maze.  Sorta because it's all a regular thing of corridors and courtyards, all neatly arranged in rectangles -- all the same as each other, without a single sign or a person to talk to -- and vanishing off into the distance.

Now the Minotaur is a Greek creature.  Smacking rather more of its origin story than most monstrosities.

On the other hand, would just slapping a manticore in place work the same?

Hmm. . . . I think it's going to be some kind of beastman.

And even though they found a door out, and fled, it's going to have to come up again, and they will have to face the beastman.

Fortunately, this is a setting with non-Euclidean geometry.  Nothing could be easier than having to go through it again.
