Caríbdis

Creatures - Greek Mythology 

 

Caríbdis - a character created by NUC Cards. 

Chibis (Greek: Χάρυβδις), in Greek mythology, was a marine creature protecting territorial boundaries at sea. In another tradition, it would be a whirlwind created by Poseidon.

 

History

 

In earlier times, Charybdis was more connected to legends of sailors and fishermen than proper Greek mythology. Homer positioned it as a mythological entity, taking it from a simple regional legend. Homer called her "the Divine Charibdis", using the same adjective applied to the beautiful nymph of the caves, Calypso.

During its existence like nymph, Caribios was characterized by extreme voracity. When Heracles passed near Messina, taking the oxen of Geryon, he stole some of the animals and devoured them. In attempting to invest against the hero, who was trying to recover his cattle, Carbisdis was struck by Zeus with lightning, and cast into the depths of the sea, where he became a sea monster.

In the Greek mythological tradition, Caríbdis was usually related to Cila, another marine monster. They lived on the opposite sides of the Strait of Messina, which separates the Italian peninsula from Sicily, and personified the dangers of navigation near rocks and whirlwinds. At the top of the rock, which was not as high as the opposite boulder of Cila, stood a black fig tree. Chondriss itself was out of sight. Three times a day he sucked the waters of the sea, and three times a day he spat again.

When Odysseus passed by the Strait of Messina, he was swept away by the whirlwind of Caríbdis, after a shipwreck provoked by the sacrilege committed against the oxen of Helio. He managed, however, to cling to the fig tree in front of the monster's grotto and then cling to a mast of the wrecked ship, managing to escape and continue his journey
