Pronunciation : TEE-this

(Titan) TETHYS

Greek Goddess of : Fresh Running Water, Nursing
Attributes : Brow wings
Festival Days :
When in Rome :

Titan daughter of Uranus and Gaia. Goddess of the fresh water elements such as rivers and streams.

Tethys married her brother Oceanos, who fancied her even though she had wings sprouting from her brow (he probably thought they would compliment the crab claws on his forehead!) and he proved his love by making her pregnant three thousand times with the spritely Oceanids and Nephelae, and the butch Potamoi.

Tethys was Gaia's baby sitter and looked after her during the clash of the Titans, and also thought she was doing her good deed for the day when she spotted Aesacus falling into the sea and wrapped him in feathers to break his fall. As it turns out, Aesacus had just lost his wife Hesperie, and wasn't particularly grateful for the divine intervention, but how was Tethys supposed to know it was a suicide attempt?
