Medusa Gorgon (メデューサ・ゴーゴン, Medyūsa Gōgon) was a Witch and one of the three Gorgon Sisters who are among the most dangerous of their people and serve as principal antagonists in the Soul Eater series. A scientist by nature, Medusa sees the world that Lord Death created 800 years ago as a form of stagnation that only the revival of Kishin Asura could resolve. To that end, Medusa conducted inhumane experiments on her own child Crona to create the Black Blood while infiltrating the Death Weapon Meister Academy as a school nurse, keeping her true intentions a secret from her order while gathering an army to make her move. Though Medusa's plan to resurrect Asura succeeded, her original body was destroyed during her fight with Franken Stein. This forces Medusa's disembodied soul to temporary possess a young girl named Rachel Royd before fully reconstituting herself through the soulless body of her older sister Arachne Gorgon.
