Nymph daughter of Poseidon and Gaia

Believed she was the goddess of tides

Flooded lands for Poseidon’s kingdom

Zeus turned her into a monster because she had gotten too much land for her father’s kingdom

She swallows huge amounts of water and belches them out, three times a dayRepresents the three high – low tides of the day She lives in a cave at the side of the Strait of Messina, next to ScyllaHas a mouth for a face, and her arms and legs are flippers


Charybdis in The Odyssey

"So with much lamenting we [Odysseus and his men] rowed on and into the strait…fiendish Charybdis sucked the salt water in. When she spewed it forth, she seethed and swirled through all her depths like a cauldron set on a great fire, and overhead the spray fell down on the tops of the two rocks… We had looked her way with the fear of death upon us; and at that moment Scylla snatched up from inside my ship the six of my crew who were the strongest of arm and sturdiest."




She is the



of Titan

AtlasSymbolized to be the force that diverts men from their goalsLived on the island of OgygiaBecame smitten with OdysseusTook Odysseus as a lover and granted him immortality if he stayed with herImprisoned Odysseus so he wouldn’t go back to his wifeOdysseus was a prisoner with her for 7 years


She had two children with Odysseus

Athena complained to Zeus about Odysseus being captured

Zeus sent a messenger, Hermes, to persuade Calypso to let Odysseus go

She was scared of Zeus’s powers and allowed Odysseus to go home

Helped Odysseus build a boat and provided him with food, wine, and good winds


Calypso in The Odyssey

"I'm not here because I enjoy crossing the desolate sea," said Hermes. "I bring a message from Zeus: Send Odysseus home.“

"You jealous gods! Can't you bear to see one of us keep a mortal of her own?" cried Calypso. "Oh very well, there's no arguing with Zeus.

Hermes rose to take his leave. "And next time, do God's bidding with a better grace."




They are the daughters of Achelous, the river god

Beautiful creatures that lured sailors with their voices

Caused shipwrecks, drowned sailors, and ate them

Used to be handmaidens to Persephone

Had wings to protect and find Persephone


When they failed, Demeter- Persephone’s mother, cursed them

The song eternally calls for Persephone’s return

Personified to be the danger of listening to peers or to others rather than listening to your conscience


Sirens in The Odyssey

‘“Come this way, honored Odysseus, great glory of the Achaeans, and stay your ship, so that you can listen here to our singing; for no one else has ever sailed past this place in his black ship until he has listened to the honey-sweet voice that issues from our lips; then goes on…Over all the generous earth we know everything that happens.” So they sang, in sweet utterance, and the heart within me desired to listen, and I signaled my companions to set me free… straightway fastened me with even more lashings and squeezed me together.”
