10 Obscure but Awesome Greek Gods & Monsters Fit for Film - Phorcys

Phorcys, like his siblings Cronus and Rhea, was one of the primordial gods from Greek mythology and ruled in the oceans. Depending on who you ask, his parents were either Oceanus and Tethys or Pontus and Gaia.

He is described as a merman with crab-claw front legs and red-spiked skin. He took Ceto as his wife and together they had several monstrous children: Skylla (a crab-like monster), Thoosa, Ladon  (a hundred-headed sea-serpent), Ekhidna (a she-dragon viper), the Graeae spirits of the sea-foam and the Gorgones sisters, Medusa, Stheno, and Euryale.
