Medusa Gorgon is an allusion to the Medusa associated with Greek Mythology. Medusa was once a golden-haired, fair maiden, who, as a priestess of Athena, was devoted to a life of celibacy; however, after being wooed by Poseidon and falling for him, she forgot her vows and married him. For this offense, she was punished by the goddess in a most terrible manner. Each wavy lock of the beautiful hair that had charmed her husband was changed into a venomous snake; her once gentle, love-inspiring eyes turned into blood-shot, furious orbs, which excited fear and disgust in the mind of the onlooker; whilst her former roseate hue and milk-white skin assumed a loathsome greenish tinge. When acting as DWMA's nurse, Medusa presents herself as a caring and supportive member of the staff, even to the point of comforting Maka Albarn when she displayed her insecurities as a Meister [18] and showing "concern" for other students within the academy such as Soul Eater. Often enough, she forms complex plans that even the DWMA at times fails to counter [23] and tends to learn from her own mistakes.

Medusa's Adult World

World Myths and Legends in Art (Minneapolis Institute of Arts)

Medusa is best known as the monstrous creature of Greek myth, maligned and hideous, with snakes for hair and the power to turn people to stone with a single look. She was eventually taken down by Perseus, who uses a mirror as he fights her so he can avoid her wrath. She was one of the Gorgons—three demigod sisters each with a different gift. Medusa was the only mortal among them. Intriguingly, Medusa is sometimes depicted as beautiful and highly seductive, and other times, she is described as hideous. Long before Medusa faced off with Perseus, there was Poseidon. There are various versions of the story, but depending on which one you pick up, either Medusa seduced Poseidon or he was smitten with her and took her.

He wanted to marry Danae, but wanted nothing to do with her adult son, Perseus. Hoping to get rid of Perseus, Polydectes ruthlessly tricked the young man into brashly undertaking a deadly mission - to bring him the head of a dreaded monster called Medusa. Medusa was one of three fearsome Gorgon sisters who lived far away in a secret hiding place.
Those who gazed into her eye's would turn to stone. Most sources describe her as the daughter of Phorcys and Ceto , [2] though the author Hyginus makes her the daughter of Gorgon and Ceto. The 2nd-century BCE novelist Dionysios Skytobrachion puts her somewhere in Libya , where Herodotus had said the Berbers originated her myth, as part of their religion. Medusa was beheaded by the hero Perseus , who thereafter used her head, which retained its ability to turn onlookers to stone, as a weapon [4] until he gave it to the goddess Athena to place on her shield. In classical antiquity the image of the head of Medusa appeared in the evil-averting device known as the Gorgoneion.
