Medusa by Flannellord Medusa by Flannellord
It's MEDUSAAAAAA! This is my interpretation on Medusa based on a very long standing RP between me and :icontyanite:

Here's some facts.

:bulletgreen: During a long period where Athena was not watching over the Parthenon (it's a long story), Medusa took over. Basically, she corrupted the parthenon, making it something of a whore house. When Athena found out, she was pissed as holy hell. She was caught in the act having sex with Poseidon underneath the palladium... It's not that hard to seduce the poor man. For punishment, Athena did a little DIY surgery, sewing attachments onto her body from a Gorgon carcass, giving her the appearance of a half-human, half-Gorgon. That's some creepy shit right there.
:bulletgreen: She is extremely power-hungry, and an avid worshipper of Aphrodite.
:bulletgreen: She was stunningly beautiful before she was turned into a Gorgon.
:bulletgreen: She was officially killed by Perseus. Her body now lays in Tartarus, and her head is with Morta.
:bulletgreen: When Chronus escapes Tartarus (part of our RP), her body is returned to her in exchange for fealty.

Athena's official reference chibi is coming soon.

Wow, awesome design! I guess I prefer that version to the least in this one, she actually did something wrong first before being punished. I like the aspect of having the parts sewn on!

Thank you! Yeah, I thought about it, and I can't see Athena (or at least the Athena in my version) would punish someone for being raped. The inner feminist in me goes nuts.

Same here *rages* My husband is actually teaching Greek mythology in school right now and he puts a great spin on it. I like yours better though! :)
