ATLAS KAYLA DUFFY
Atlas was the Titan god, he was god of astronomy and navigation he also held the world on his shoulders.
Atlas was married to his sister Phoebe, and had the children Hesperides, the Hyades, Hyas, the Pleiades, Calypso, Dione and Maera.
One day Perseus, who had just cut off Medusa's head, visited. Atlas heard the news and did not like it at all.
Atlas had threatened him to go away. Perseus didn't like being threatened by Atlas. Instead of talking it out he got Atlas to looks into Medusa's eyes.
Immediately Atlas turned to stone and created what we know as the Atlas mountains.
