My wordle for medusa http://www.wordle.net/show/wrdl/6474273/Medusa Medusa's relatives Medusa's father was Phorcys a sea god. Medusa's mother was Ceto a sea goddess. Medusa's sisters are the gorgons Stheno and Euryale. Medusa's skills Medusa is very weird and has special talents. She turns anything to stone that looks in her eyes. Medusa's hair is not like any hair ever seen. Her hair is made of snakes that are living!! The snakes are constantly moving waiting for the next victim. Medusa's features Medusa's weaknesses If medusa stares or looks at anyone they die. That is a bad thing because if medusa gets married or falls in love she will turn that person to stone. Also since she has the special power, nobody wants no be around her so she is lonely all her life. Medusa myth Medusa was one of three sisters, the gorgons, but she was the only mortal one. Some versions say all three were born as monsters, but the predominant myths had them as gorgeous maidens. Medusa was so beautiful that Poseidon was crazy about her, but she didn’t care about him; Poseidon turned her and her sisters into monsters with live snakes covering their heads. Medusa kept her beautiful face but everything else was so monstrous. And whoever dared to look into her face ended up being turned into stone.

Perseus thus had a hard task. He asked Athena and Hermes for help and two of them, together with the nymphs, provided winged sandals to fly him to the end of the world where gorgons lived, a cap that made him invisible, a sword and a mirrored shield. The latter was the most important tool Perseus had, since it allowed him to see a reflection of Medusa’s face and to avoid being turned into stone.

When he cut Medusa’s head off, from the drops of her blood suddenly appeared two offspring: Pegasus, a winged horse, and Chrysaor, a giant or a winged boar. It’s believed that those two were Medusa’s children with Poseidon.

In any case, once he accomplished his task Perseus flew back and escaped Medusa’s sisters who tried to reach him. Later, Perseus used Medusa’s head as a weapon in many occasions until he gave the head to Athena to place it on her shield. Medusa poem Medusa was a gorgon
She has a special power
When you look at her features
Your only feature is stone

She had snake like hair
That would make you stare
When you look at her you turn to stone
Just from one quick glare

Perseus Didnt stare
He killed her with no glares
He looked into a reflection
And killed her and her snake like hair
