Cyclopes (sy-klop-eez) are one-eyed giants that enjoy their seclusion.
The Cyclopes parents were Uranus (God of the sky) and Gaia (Goddess of the Earth).
One of the most famous Cyclops was named Polyphemus (polly-feemus), and was a son of Poseidon.

Sirens
Sirens were the sea nymphs that could enchant anyone who heard their song. The Sirens sang their songs to lure sailors to their deaths by crashing the ships against their island's rocky coast.
Poseidon
Poseidon was a sea god and brother of Zeus and Hades. He was the father of the Cyclops, Polyphemus. He was the creator of the first horse. He is the second most powerful god, after his brother Zeus.
Athena
Athena is the only daughter of Zeus. She has no mother because she leaped from his forehead. She was one of the only virgin goddesses. She is the goddess of the city, handicrafts, and agriculture. She invented the bridle, flute, trumpet, the pot, the rake, the plow, the yoke, the ship, and the chariot. She was the favorite daughter of Zeus.
Zeus
Zeus is the king of all the gods. He is the god of the sky and weather, law, order of people, and fate. Zeus is armed with thunder and lightning.
Cyclops
Helios is the god of the sun. He was described as the god who saw and heard everything. He was imagined as a handsome God, who drove the sun-chariot across the sky every morning.
Helios
Charybdis
Charybdis was a sea-monster whose face was one giant mouth. She lives in a whirlpool in the Strait of Messina.
Scylla
Scylla is a sea-monster that lives opposite of Charybdis in the Strait of Messina. She would attack sailors whose ships ventured too close to her.
Circe
Circe was a witch that lived in exile on the island of Aeaea. She was very skilled at metamorphism.
Calypso
She is a nymph that enslaved Odysseus on the island of Ogygia for many years after the Trojan war. She wanted to keep Odysseus to be her immortal husband.
