A flesh eating Nymph from Greek mythology. She coupled with Poseidon and gave birth to Polypemon the Cyclops. She is most likely the wife of Ceto and her mother was Phorcys the enormous sea creature born from Gaia. Thoosa is also known for her swiftness as was considered a goddess of swift and dangerous currents. As one of the Haliads, the sea Nymphs, Thoosa had the appearance of a Mermaid, having a body of a beautiful woman and the tail of a fish instead of legs.
