History Although the Greeks also told stories of river gods and lesser ocean deities, Poseidon was the ruler of all waters. Not content to simply enjoy his realm, Poseidon often interfered with the lives of gods, heroes, and mortals. He was the father of many, including Theseus, Polyphemus the cyclops, and Pegasus. He is most often featured as a powerfully built, bearded man carrying a trident.

Story

The foolish Odysseus would pay for this. Poseidon grumbled in his undersea palace, anger festering inside him. He’d just received word that his son Polyphemus the cyclops had been blinded by a seafarer named Odysseus. He remembered wily Odysseus, of course, for his bravery beneath the walls of Troy. But now the hero had gone too far and must be punished. Poseidon thought of all that was at his disposal. Storms, winds, waves, yes. But also the Sirens, Scylla, Charybdis, sea serpents, and maybe a few other surprises along the way. Too bad Odysseus would be back home soon. If only Poseidon could make the journey last longer, he could inflict all manner of punishment. Poseidon smiled, hefted his trident, and called for his chariot. Ten years ought to be enough.
