EURYNOME

Greek Sea Goddess

Goddess of Broad Pastures

One of the OCEANIDS and the daughter of OCEANUS and THETIS.

She was waltzing around in OLYMPUS before the arrival of CRONUS and RHEA, who lost no time in slinging her into the sea and taking over.

She’s a delightfully charming and kind Sea Nymph. Her kindest act was taking HEPHAESTUS under her fin after he was kicked out of Olympus for being ugly. Together with THETIS, she nursed his bruises and his ego until he was ready to kick some ass among the Gods.

EURYNOME is also the mother of the GRACES via a fling with ZEUS. She was always doing favors for people.
