    Poseidon is the name of my dark (blue?) campbell drake. It's why I'd love to keep the theme going. We'll have Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, and Leia....and Poseidon, Calypso and ____.

    Circe- Goddess of magic, daughter of the sun. Not really water... but still cool.

    Odeysseus- He had a "relationship" with Circe and I believe Calypso.

    In Greek mythology, Tethys (Greek: Τηθύς), daughter of Uranus and Gaia[1] was an archaic Titaness and aquatic sea goddess, invoked in classical Greek poetry but not venerated in cult. Tethys was both sister and wife of Oceanus.[2] She was mother of the chief rivers of the world known to the Greeks, such as the Nile, the Alpheus, the Maeander, and about three thousand daughters called the Oceanids.[3]Considered as an embodiment of the waters of the world she also may be seen as a counterpart of Thalassa, the embodiment of the sea. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tethys_(mythology)

    OR

    In ancient Greek mythology, Amphitrite (Ἀμφιτρίτη) was a sea-goddess and wife of Poseidon.[1] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amphitrite
