Poseidon Picture

This is a fan art about Japanese manga/anime Saint Seiya drawn by Masami Kurumada. My version is very different. The story happens in Greek mythological era. When the Olympian gods fought the Titans, each god formed an army of knights. Hephaestus created all the armors for them. Athena only had 48 knights (according to the number of ancient constellations). When the war ended, half of Athena's army was dead. The survivors became rogue knights because their service was no longer required. Just like the original Greek version, Athena chose to mingle with other gods on mount Olympus - leaving humans at the mercy of mischievous gods and dangerous monsters. Each ex-Athena's knight then handed down their armor and power to their descendants or relatives. Although the war against the titans had ended, people still needed savior because sometimes Olympian gods caused havoc. Hence, the knights were still in business of saving lives.

Poseidon is Greek god of sea. When the titans rose to seize control, Poseidon and his relatives joined forces and created armies recruited from mortal men. Poseidon appointed Chrysaor - his son - to be a general. And also 6 other men whom he gave the gift of immortality. Among all, he favored his gay lover - Pelops - so much that he gave him one of his favorite seahorses.

After the war with the titans was over, Poseidon uses his generals to bring forth his judgement over humans. When humans forget to honor him, he will send his generals to cause havoc. At times, Poseidon will unleash tsunamis and earthquakes, as reminder to the humans that he is a powerful god not to be messed with.

Poseidon's seven generals are:
* Chrysaor [link]
* Salamander Korax [link]
* Sea-Dragon Speudon [link]
* Manta Tecton [link]
* Siren Linus [link]
* Scylla Praxis [link]
* Sea-horse Pelops [link]
