SCYLLAAlso known as SKYLLA
Sea Nymph who was transmogrified into a hideous monsterPOSEIDON, which upset AMPHITRITE, then stuck her neck out even further by leaping uninvited into the jacuzzi of CIRCE.
A bad choice. CIRCE lobbed in a handful of magic herbs and when SCYLLA emerged she had six new long necks complete with extra heads and rows of very nasty teeth. She now has to lurk in a cavern in a reef with no hope of even a blind date. She has to snatch what she can to live on, her heads popping out like monstrous moray eels.
