Poseidon

Poseidon was the god of the sea, storms, and, as "Earth-Shaker," of earthquakes in Greek mythology. He was integrated into the Olympian gods as the brother of Zeus and Hades. His parents are Cronus and Rhea.

Poseidon's symbols areTrident, Fish, Dolphin, Horse and Bull.

Amphitrite was a sea-goddess and wife of Poseidon. Under the influence of the Olympian pantheon, she became merely the consort of Poseidon, and was further diminished by poets to a symbolic representation of the sea. In Roman mythology, the consort of Neptune, a comparatively minor figure, was Salacia, the goddess of saltwater.

Polyphemus is the gigantic one-eyed son of Poseidon and Thoosa in Greek mythology, one of the Cyclopes. His name means "very famous". Polyphemus plays a pivotal role in Homer's Odyssey.

Zeus, Hades, Hera, Hestia and Demeter are his siblings and his parents are Cronus and Rhea
