The Origin of MEDUSA
Medusa was one of the most beautiful women in Greece. She worshiped the goddess Athena and thus, was chaste. However, all the men wanted her.
Poseidon didn't care that she was a virgin and raped her in Athena's temple. This made Athena very mad.
Cursed by Athena, Medusa grew snakes instead of hair, and became a Gorgon (death monster). Any person she saw would be turned to stone!
Living alone on an island, she soon became surrounded by the bodies (or statues) of failed heroes.
Perseus finally defeats Medusa by using a shield to deflect her gaze.
