Whatever they were, there were nine of them and they came from the sea. They had dog heads and sealion bodies when they weren’t busy shape-changing into something else.
They roamed around Rhodes or Crete and could kill anything with a poison look, so protection was not a problem and they could spend all their time gamboling around indulging in silly pranks and tomfoolery.
