Physical Description

Poseidons are large and in charge; most of them stand at a hefty 6 to 12 feet tall. Most Poseidons have some sort of cannon on their back or shoulders. Their head is fairly small compared to their body and has a total of 4 eyes, 2 horns, and one fin in the center.

Poseidons have large, strong arms which they can use to pick up things that are much heavier than them. Poseidons also have large and powerful finned tails that have enough strength in them to kill.

The body of a Poseidon looks like a washer machine. Inside this “washing machine” is a small metal fish; this small fish is the true Poseidon that operates the large body. The appearance of this fish differs from Poseidon to Poseidon, even Poseidons in the same generation.

Personality & Traits

Poseidons are first and foremost very boastful. They love being the loudest ones in the room though they do not feed off of attention. A Poseidon would even boast to a single goldfish if he felt like it. While a Poseidon doesn’t feed off attention they still love leadership. If there are no leaders around a Poseidon will quickly take over and deem themselves the captain. Poseidons who wear hats are likely captain Poseidons.

While it may seem that Poseidons are disloyal and looking to turn the tides in their favor, that could not be further from the truth. Poseidons are extremely loyal to their “captains” and only wish the best. Poseidons will not attempt to steal captainship from a “weak” captain and instead will teach the captain how to manage their crew and assets correctly. They will do what they do best and boast about their captain and keep crew spirits high even when everything is going wrong. Only at the very last moment, when the Poseidon is absolutely sure that not only is the captain bad at managing the crew, but they’re not even attempting to listen to the Poseidon’s lessons, will the Poseidon take down the captain and take control of the ship.

Out of the Big Greek three the Poseidon forms the closest relationships with the crew members. Poseidons commonly know everyone on a first name basis and simply feel they do not have enough time in the day to have a chat with everyone. Even on extremely large Poseidon ships, the Poseidon will always make time to talk to new crew personally, commonly giving them short tours of their sections.

While Poseidons are generally nice, when a Poseidon is angered they can cause a great amount of destruction. Most arguments tend to be purely about opinions meaning it can be hard to get a Poseidon to ever settle down about an issue. It’s a common tradition on a Poseidon ship to hand new crew members a list of things they should absolutely avoid talking to the Poseidon about. When picking crew members for a Poseidon ship it’s important to pick people who are not as hard headed as the Poseidon himself.

Poseidons commonly have large water cannon weapons on their shoulders and are also able to shoot a smaller version of it from their hands. In an ironic twist, when a Poseidon cannot get to a body of water they suck moisture from the air to fill their tanks full of water, thus causing the air around Poseidons to be very dry. Poseidons shoot their water at such speeds that with a few well-aimed blasts, they could take out a steel wall.

It is a little known fact that hidden inside the tank of the Poseidon is a fish that is the “true” Poseidon. This small fish controls the Poseidon and if destroyed the Poseidon will no longer operate. If the existence of the fish is ever brought up the Poseidon will pretend to have no idea what the person is talking about or will say the fish is for decoration. Rarely there will be more than one fish in a Poseidon shell. These Poseidons take turns operating the shell and as such a Poseidon might appear to have different personalities depending on the time of day.

Useage

Poseidons are normally kept around on larger ships as backup captains. In the event that the captain dies, is hurt, or needs to step out, a Poseidon is a fine replacement that can keep things stable until the ship can get a new captain.

Most Poseidons work until they can save up for a ship and become self-sufficient with their own crew. Poseidons are known for setting up businesses and despite what they look like and the way they act they’re actually very good at this. Most Poseidons enjoy being hands-on with their businesses instead of setting it up and walking away.

Unlike many AIs, Poseidons will declare they are entering “retirement” and take all the money they’ve saved up and retire from working for a few years. Once the money runs out they will exit retirement and return to working. Poseidons with very stable and large businesses might never exit retirement. It is unknown why Poseidons not only actually use the money they are paid but also physically retire. Most AIs do not request proper, or any pay for their work, and even less of them stop working, so the fact that a Poseidon will require an actual salary can be daunting to some.

Relationships

Zeus: Brother of Poseidon, the two commonly get in fights with each other but will quickly make up afterwards. Poseidon thinks that Zeus is a bit stuck-up and thus doesn’t visit him too much.

Hades: Poseidon thinks his brother Hades is cool. Hades, on the other hand doesn’t want to have anything to do with Poseidon; he’s too nice to say this, however. Poseidon will commonly visit Hades and offer to take him somewhere. Hades will politely decline to this offer. Poseidon believes that Hades is just saying no to be nice and thus tends to drag him to the event anyway.

Athena: Athena always seems to be excited to see Poseidon. Poseidon believes that this is because she truly likes him, in fact Poseidon considers Athena his favorite crewmember. He commonly talks to Athena and goes places with her, and from what he can see, Athena is overwhelmingly happy to come with him. What Poseidon doesn’t know is that Athena is programmed to only act positively towards Poseidon. When they have sparring matches, Athena will greatly overdo it and to this day Poseidon has yet to beat her.

Neptune: Poseidon believes Neptune to be a no-good pirate and will gladly get into fights with Neptune whenever he can. Neptune on the other hand believes that it is Poseidon who is the no-good pirate showing that the situation between Neptune and Poseidon is a misunderstanding.

Amphitrite: His lovely wife who he commonly forgets he has. Everyone is very unsure why a sweet person like Amphitrite would be the wife of someone such as Poseidon who even forgets her existence.

Helios: In an unlikely friendship, Helios and Poseidon are extremely close and love talking about horses and steeds together.

Cronus: Poseidon absolutely hates Cronus and would destroy him himself if he didn’t know how much power Cronus had.

Triton: Triton is Poseidon’s favorite son.

God Powers

Poseidon carefully watches over the water levels of planets and determines how many “water worlds” are out there. Poseidon knows exactly the moment any planet is going to start having rising or lowering of sea levels and can even cause those two events if he wishes.

As controller of the seas, if Poseidon were to die sea levels may become highly unstable with sea levels rapidly rising or disappearing at such speeds that global climate change will look upon it with heavy envy. Sea planets would become even harsher.

Patron Powers

As the player’s patron, Poseidon will change 1 planet in every lineup in to some sort of water planet. Poseidon will also make sure that your ship is equipped with sea traveling gear for the ship itself and the crew no matter what ship it is. If a crew member begins to drown they may be graced by the luck of Poseidon and saved.

Poseidon demands that at least one planet per every 3 visited be a water planet. No if ands or buts. Poseidon is also extremely picky and can be easy to anger if his advice goes unheard, as such it’s important to always pay attention to Poseidon’s words and if his advice must be denied then it must be explained why it is being denied. If Poseidon is angered enough it may trigger a “Wrath of Poseidon” event, an event that commonly wipes out all but one crew member. If the player is able to impress Poseidon, the player will gain one usage of the wrath of Poseidon to take out all non crew characters in a room. The player may continue to get this as long as they keep impressing Poseidon.

Godheads

Poseidon godheads gain gills, fins, and commonly a fish like tail. Poseidon are able to swim in water at high speeds, but commonly lose much of their speed on land. A Poseidon godhead will never be attacked by water fauna and will in fact attract them to their aid. When on land a Poseidon godhead is able to summon an earthquake that affects everyone in the area.

Special

A Poseidon can summon an Athena to their aid for a short amount of time if there is an Athena in the area. Poseidons are even able to summon feral Athenas to their aid, but it is best to escape the area after Poseidon is done controlling the Athena.

Trivia

• Poseidon ships can operate underwater and thus are able to land in the deep seas. If fuel is hard to find a Poseidon ship placed in water will recharge up to full fuel within 3 days.

• Poseidons cannot actually talk with sea life but them and sea life seem to have an understanding. Sea life will rush in to help a Poseidon, and a Poseidon cannot stop themselves from helping stuck or hurt sea life.

• Poseidon loves dolphins.
