Medusa Edit

[[Medusa was the most well known Gorgon. In the myth Poseidon was doing Medusa in Athena's temple. Athena cought them and turned her and her two sister who were on watch into the three Gorgons. Persus encountered Medusa in a cave. He was warned before hand that if he looked into her eyes he'd be turned to stone. Athena gave him a shield that could double as a mirror. He used it to find Medusa so that he could cut off her head. When he cut off her head the two children of the affair with Poseidon were born by springing up out of her neck. The first one is easily the most recognised, Pegasus. The other not so much, Chrysaor.]]
