Interesting Factoids of Wisdom

1. Each of Scylla's necks are five feet long.

2. She was partners with Charybdis, a whirpool

3. Scylla devoured any sailors who dared to come near her.

4. Poseidon had an affair with her.

5. She was cursed by a witch by the name of Circe.

6. Scylla lived atop two rocks in the Strait of Messina.

10. Circe's curse caused her to be an extremely ugly beast with a hunger for human flesh.

I chose this beast because it looked kinda neglected, just sitting there with its flyer taped to the whiteboard and everyone crowding around the other legends and ignoring it. This choice represents me because I can turn into an unstoppable beast with a thirst for human blood if someone steals my food.
