Poseidon Picture

The name Poseidon means either “husband of earth” or “lord of the earth.” Traditionally he was a son of Cronus, an ancient chief god, and Rhea, a fertility goddess, and was brother of Zeus, the chief god, and Hades, god of the underworld. When the three brothers deposed their father, the kingdom of the sea fell by lot to Poseidon. His weapon was the trident, but it may originally have been a long-handled fish spear.

I've always had an androgenous vision of Gods, so although the legend says Poseidon is a man, this is how I saw him... his gender isn't quite clear. This may be the first of a mythology series, depending on my inspiration... I'm not very satisfied with how this first one turned out.
