Troublesome creatures of Greek mythology that had a human like appearance with flipper like arms and legs. Some describe them as having the heads of dogs. They were great at creating technology but this caused crops to wither and water to become foul. This angered Zeus and so he banished them to the Earth. They used their sorcery to create the sickle that Cronos used to castrate Uranus and the Trident of Poseidon. They are said to bestow a hypnotic gaze when someone angers them.
