Poseidon- God of the Sea, he has the power to calm the seas and make it rain. Often, sailors would pray to him for safe voyage and make sacrifices to him, typically by drowning a horse. Poseidon is normally seen with a triton, a powerful three-pronged fishing spear that gave him the power to raise tempests and cause earthquakes.
Cassandra, in greek mythology, is the daughter of King Priam and Queen Hecuba of Troy. The god Apollo granted her the ability to see and hear the future but once she denied the god’s attempt at seduction he transformed her gift into a curse. Apollo did not take away her ability to tell the future, instead he made it so no one would ever believe her. This curse caused people to think she was somewhat crazy even though her future tellings were still very accurate.
