Mythology Creation Plot Diagram - Poseidon, Zaire Ortiz
This storyboard does not have a description.
Zeus forced Kronos to vomit up all of his brothers and sisters. He led them to war against their father and they overthrew him. Poseidon, Zeus, and Hades drew lots to see who would control what. Poseidon got control of all fresh and salt water, Zeus got control of the Skies (making him ruler of Olympus) and Hades got control of the Underworld.
Even though Poseidon was married to the Nereid Amphitrite, there was a point in time when he liked Demeter. Demeter didn’t feel the same way, so to keep him away she asked him to make the most beautiful animal. Along his quest for making this animal he created many other creatures. In the end he made the horse, but by that point in time he was over Demeter.
Medusa was another of his lovers, they both once had a sexual encounter in one of Athena's temples, this made the Goddess furious and as a punishment for such sacrilege Medusa was transform into a monster. When she was decapitated by Perseus, Pegasus and Chrysaor came out from her neck.
Athena and Poseidon both wanted to claim the city of Attica. Athena suggested they hold a contest. Each god would present their gifts to the city and whoever’s gift was deemed best, won the city. Poseidon gave the people of Athens the gift of water, but unfortunately, being the god of sea water, the water was salty. Athena gave them an olive tree. This tree gave the people olives to eat and wood to build things. The people considered Athena’s gift to be better, and she then became the patron of the city, renaming it the city of Athens.
There was a time when Poseidon and Apollo made Zeus angry, Zeus then sent them to Troy to be of service to King Laomedon. The king asked the Gods to build a wall around the city to protect it, and at the end, he would give them a present. When the walls were done, the King did not keep his promise and Poseidon sent a sea creature to punish the King.
Poseidon was known to have long blue hair and a long beard. He had a big temper and he was greedy. He was imposing and strong. Poseidon liked to ride his chariot, pulled by horses and hippocampi.
