(Greek Creature) MEDUSA

Also known as MEDOUSA

After a sexual altercation at the alter she became the only woman ever to change from a bit of a stunner physically to a bit of a stunner literally!

Medusa was the daughter of Phorkys and Ceto and the only mortal of three sisters known as the Gorgons, the other two being Stheno and Euryale. She was a bit of a looker and having fallen for her beautiful golden locks the moody sea God Poseidon helped himself to some sweet Medusa lovin' in Athena's temple. The understandibly p'd off Athena turned Medusa's hair into snakes and just for good measure threw in a face that even a mother couldn't love, even if she wanted to - anyone who gazed at it would be turned to stone.

She was beheaded at the instruction of King Polydectes of Seriphus by Persius with the aid of Hermes' winged sandals, Hades' cap of invisibility and a mirrored shield. Two drops of blood from the severed head created the winged horse Pegasus and the giant Chrysaor.
