Greek Sea God

Also known as Phorkys

Old Sea God with some pretty horrible kids

Everywhere you go there are Old Men of the Sea, with seaweedy beards festooned in cockles riding along on the crest of a wave with wild and wonderful sex lives whenever they surf the beaches.

The bathing beauty who did most of the motherhood bit with Phorcys was his wife Ceto. And they spawned monsters without exception.

Amongst their offspring were the Graeae, the Gorgons, a Dragon called Ladon and just possibly the Hesperides, according to the findings of some beachcombers.
