Charybdis Picture

Once a beautiful naiad, Charybdis assisted her father Poseidon in his feud against Zeus by flooding huge swathes of land. Charybdis was so successful that Zeus turned her into a monster to stop her. While unable to claim anymore land in this state, Charybdis continued to cause havoc by creating whirlpools - specifically by sucking in and vomiting out the sea water thrice a day.

Charybdis lived with fellow sea-monster Scylla in a strait so narrow that all passing ships had to go near one of the two monsters. Scylla would devour six crew members, but Charybdis would destroy the entire ship.
