Medusa is one of the few mortals at Mount Olympus Academy. Not many mortals get to attend the school, but her sisters snuck her in, and when Zeus found out he let her stay. She is the only girl with snakes for hair! She is starred in two books: Medusa The Mean and Medusa the Rich.

In the first seven books, she is the archenemy of the four most popular goddess girls at the Academy. She is famous for her stoneifying gaze, which was accidentally caused by one of Athena's inventions. "Snarkypoo", or as Athena misspelled it, "Snakeypoo", dripped into Medusa's eyes when she was showering and ended up making her gaze able to turn mortals into stone. Snarkypoo was originally made to turn snarky words into stone.

Medusa has two twin immortal sisters, Stheno and Euryale. They are the only goddessgirls in her family, while Medusa is mortal. In "Medusa The Mean", it reveals that she wants immortality and popularity, instead of feeling like an outsider. One of her big secrets is that she has to study extremely hard to keep up. She gets to be immortal for one day because of her present to Principal Zeus's wedding.

In the early books, Medusa has a crush on the self-absorbed Poseidon, but later realizes that another godboy, Dionysus, really likes her.

Pets Edit

She has a dozen snakes growing out of her head that she treats like pets. The snakes names are: Viper, Flicka, Pretzel, Snapper, Twister, Slinky, Lasso, Slither, Scaly, Emerald, Sweetpea and Wiggle.

In Greek mythology, the three Gorgon sisters — Medusa, Stheno, and Euryale - were all children of the ancient marine deities Phorcys (or Phorkys) and his sister Ceto (or Keto), chthonic monsters from an archaic world. In the Goddess Girls series, Ceto and Phorcys are mentioned as a sea monster and sea hog.
