March 2021 - Medusa Full Patreon Release
Ritual Casting March 2021 Patreon Release featuring Medusa.
In this tale Medusa is a victim. Betrayed by Athena, the goddess whom she served, thanks to the actions of Poseidon. The story goes that Medusa, a priestess of Athena, was a woman of amazing beauty. Her eyes and hair were so beautiful that she alone drew patrons to the temple of Athena from all over Greece just so they could admire her. Athena was grew jealous of this mortal's good looks over time.
While walking the cliffs and admiring the ocean, Poseidon saw her and became infatuated with her. He appeared to Medusa and asked for her hand. Ever the devoted priestess, she declined the gods offer, which enraged Poseidon. The Greek gods were not known to take rejection lightly, and so Poseidon sexually assaulted Medusa in Athena's own temple. When Athena found out, she was outraged that such an act had taken place in her temple but no god could punish another, and so her anger was turned to Medusa instead. Jealous of her beautiful hair and eyes she turned her hair into live snakes, and cursed Medusa with eyes that would turn men to stone should they gaze into them.
Distraught and hunted as a monster, Medusa hid herself a way and was cursed forevermore to repel attempts on her life with each petrified would-be hero reminding her of the horror she had been turned into.
