Sea nymphs, Greek gods and magic balls
Once upon a time, there was a beautiful sea nymph named Idothea. She was the daughter of Proteus, a prophetic old sea-god and the herdsman of the seals of Poseidon. She loved her father very much and they lived peacefully among the seals.
One day, however, Lamia, a shark-shaped sea Deamon rushed into the seal herd and began to kill them. Porteus immediately came to the aid of his precious seals. Lamia captured him as her prisoner, which had been her original purpose.
She told Idothea that she would release her father if Idothea brought her a human man to eat within a week. You see Lamia’s favorite meal was not seals. No, she was the devourer of men, especially sailors.
Because of massive storms, attributed to global warming created by the excesses of the Greek gods, human men had been unable to go out in their boats. As Lamia’s powers depended on her diet of sailors, she was becoming desperate.
Idothea was terrified, but determined to find help. She went to the Nereides and told her story. The Nereides wanted to help, but as the protectors of sailors, they could not. Instead, they came up with a different solution.
They told Idothea that she had to find three glass magic balls. While each of these glass balls had separate powers, they were most powerful when used together.
The Nereides told Idothea how to find the glass balls and what she had to do with them to save her father. It would not be an easy task….
