EtymologyEdit

The Goregon and its blue cousin are inspired by the Greek myth of Medusa and her sisters, known as the Gorgons. They appear as beautiful women with venomous snakes in the place of hair. Those who gazed into Medusa's eyes were turned to stone. In one myth, Medusa was originally a beautiful maiden but she had her hair transformed into snakes by the goddess Athena after she was violated by the god Posiedon in a temple that was sacred to Athena. She was eventually beheaded by the hero Perseus. In some versions of the myth, Medusa's head became the shield Aegis and it could be used to petrify anyone who looked into her eyes.
