ACHERON

Greek River God

God of the River of Grief

Son of Helios and Gaia, he sided with the Titans against the Gods in the early battles, not actually fighting but lending a hand as a water carrier.

Zeus decided a suitable punishment was to turn him into water as a tributary of the River Styx known as Acheron, the River of Grief, leading to the Underworld Hades.
