Scylla

Grant Boehringer

Scylla

Scylla was a beast that had six heads of different animals and rows and rows of teeth. She killed sailors as they sailed by. Before Scylla became a monster, she was a beautiful nymph. Circe was jealous of her and turned her into a monster.

Scylla and Charybdis

Scylla lives on a rock in between Italy and Sicily. She lives across a monster named Charybdis, who creates a whirlpool. Being across from Charybdis holds an advantage for Scylla because sailors would prefer to lose half a dozen men over losing the whole ship so they will typically sail on her side.
