Medusa's on the loose!

Medusa is a Gorgon, which is a human with scaly snakes for hair, fangs, bird-like claws, and eyes that can turn you to stone.

Family History

Medusa had three sisters like her, all of them Gorgons. Medusa's parents were two minor gods called Phorcys and Ceto. She had three other sisters, who were hags who shared one eye, known as Graiae.

First Seen/Creation

Medusa wasn't always the nasty creature she is now. Medusa used to be a beautiful young woman, who was turned into a monster when Athena caught her with Poseidon in Athena's temple.


Medusa is wanted for killing countless people by turning them to stone, and wanted by Athena for dating Poseidon.


If you kill Medusa, you will be able to take her head, which would still have the power to turn you to stone.

Medusa is very dangerous. Just looking at her can turn you to stone, even a hair.

Medusa was slain by Perseus. Perseus was sent by Polydectes, and used a sheild to fight her reflection. He chopped her head off, and escaped her sisters with a cap of invisibility.
