Greek | Deity THETIS

Sea Nymph daughter of Nereus and Doris.

Thetis was one of the few females that were never fiddled-with sexually by the fond of sexually fiddling male Gods, basically because she was bound to a prophecy whereby her son would become more powerful than his father. Zeus and Poseidon avoided her like the plague.

She eventually betrothed King Peleus of Phthva and had seven sons who were all subjected to trials by fire and boiling water, but she was terribly disapointed by their mortality.

When it suddenly dawned on her that STYX had invincibility giving powers, she rushed there with her newest son, Achilles, and dipped him in with high hopes of complete invincibility. Unfortunately, she held him by his foot so it didn't receive the benefit and her clumsy dunking gave our hero-to-be his only weakness. Ever heard of Achilles' heel?
