Medusa was the daughter of Phorkys and Keto, tyhe children of Gaia (Earth) and Oceanus (Ocean). She was one of the three sisters known as Gorgons and very beautiful maiden. As a priestess of goddess Athena, was devoted to a life of celibacy, but after she being raped by Poseidon, Athena cursed her to be the monster we all know until our days. Each wavy lock of the beautiful hair was changed into a venomous snake and her gentle, love-inspiring eyes became bloodshot. With the curse of Athena upon her, she turned into stone whomever she gazed upon. After a life of nameless misery she found the death by the hands of Perseus.
