Is that my son? WHAT IS HE DOING IN THE MAINLAND?! AND TALKING TO A MORTAL?
A few moments later...
Hmmm... I think I have an idea! What if use my trident to create a whirpool so my son can never escape from me?!
Long long ago when the universe was just created, Demi-God Triton and mortal Vanessa develop a strong relationship resulting in them getting engaged to each other.
So Powerful! Triton will surely give up when he sees this!
The God Poseidon (Triton's father) got curious about where his son was since he couldn't find him in his kingdom so he disguised himself as a dolphin and went out to the shore to find him. He then sees his son asking a mortal to marry him and most importantly he standing on the forbidden land!
AHHH FATHER HELP!!
OH NO! WHAT HAVE I DONE?!
Poseidon changes back into his natural form. He gets so infuriated at his son's decision to marry a mortal and visit the forbidden land he plots a way to get back at him: to eliminate him.
please help me find my son!
So Poseidon sets up a perfect spot for him to create the whirlpool as he waits for his son to step into the trap. With a light tap on the ground using his trident, a powerful portal like whirlpool appeared.
And so Triton comes along and steps into the trap unknowingly. Poseidon soon regretted what he had done but there was no going back, his son was gone.
And this is the story of how whirlpools came to be. If you ever happen to see one, it is because poseidon reopens his portal in hopes of his son being retrieved to him.
