Poseidon, the god of sea, one day decided he wanted a wife; someone by his side to help him rule the sea. So with his power he commanded the nymphs of the sea to create him a wife. They went to work right away, and created a woman out of rock salt. Poseidon called her Sodius.
After the nymphs finished Sodius, Poseidon brought her to his brother Zeus, the God of all gods. Poseidon pleaded with his brother to make this rock salt into someone he could love, a woman who would be immortal and ageless so she could stay with him.
Zeus granted his brother’s proposal. With the power of the gods Sodius came to life, the rock salt cracked in half and a woman appeared from within the rock. She had the deepest blue eyes, fair skin and long black hair that fell to the middle of her back. She was beautiful and Poseidon fell for her instantly.
Poseidon married Sodius and they went home; she became the Goddess of the Sea, to rule by her husband’s side for ever and ever. Her throne stood beside her husband’s. It was made out of sand and salt and was covered with the most beautiful shells found at the bottom of the Ocean.
Later, they had two children, twins in fact a girl and a boy. After bringing the kids up to meet their aunt and uncle, Zeus and Hera. Hera got very jealous of the relationship between Sodius and Poseidon. She knew she would never have what they had so while Sodius and Poseidon were not looking, she took the twins and stranded them on an island.
Poseidon and Sodius were so sad about losing their beloved children, they searched everywhere. After days Hera confessed. Sodius wanted Hera to feel at least as sad as when she lost her children. Hera begged Sodius to stop. The sound of Hera screaming of pain bothered Poseidon, so he told Sodius to stop. Sodius and the twins never spoke to Hera again.
