The Gorgons are Greek creatures.

DescriptionEdit

The Gorgons are three she-beasts that have snakes in the place of hair. Two of the Gorgons, Stheno and Euryale, are immortal and have wings. Medusa, the third Gorgon, is mortal and her look can change a person to stone.

Perseus slayed Medusa in his search for a way to save Andromeda.

In some stories, Medusa was a beautiful woman that was raped by Poseidon in the temple of Athena. Athena then turned Medusa into a Gorgon as punishment.

The Gorgons are sea deities that preside over submerged reefs that cause problems to fishermen.
