Sirens are a trio of sisters in Greek mythology, two immortal and one mortal (Medusa). Who had living venomous snakes for their hair, turning those who viewed their visage into stone.
Background[edit | edit source]
The Gorgons are a mystical race that descends from the Elder God Set. Sired by Set's son Phorcys who mated with the sea monster Ceto. They have green-skinned serpentine bodies, a feminine humanoid face, two mammary glands (breasts), snakes for hair, and fangs. Some of them have a green-skinned humanoid body with snakes for hair.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- In Witches and Other Night-Fears, Charles Lamb mentioned the Gorgons, Hydras, and Chimaeras, as "dire stories of Celaeno and the Harpies". The excerpt is quoted as a preface in "The Dunwich Horror" (HPL).
