She uses Ariadne's pink ball of yarn for her to follow back when the labyrinth is finished, although she faces dangerous and misplaced challenges that she placed in the labyrinth herself using her powers and realized why Daedalus, her inventing teen mortal hero, made it so easy. She triggers her own traps and traps Hades and the others inside the labyrinth for a long time.
