Poseidon, King of Seas (海王 ポセイドン ; Kaiō Poseidon; Θάλασσα Βασιλιάς Ποσειδῶν), is the Greek God of the Seas as depicted in the Saint Seiya Franchise. Originally appearing in the Classic Manga / Anime, having been the first Deity other than Athena to ever show up in the series, he has been a recurring character in Saint Seiya Omega and Saint Seiya Lost Canvas.
The God of the Seas spend his entire life under the shadows of his brothers. Zeus acted as the Supreme Ruler of the Universe, controlling the Skies and Earth; And Hades stayed as Emperor of the Underworld, controlling Hades and Elysium. Meanwhile, Poseidon was given the Rulership of the Oceans and the Sea Realm below, practically nothing in comparison. To further add to his anger, Zeus always favored his youngest daughter Athena instead of her brother, always bestowing titles and entire lands to her, rather than his brother. During the whole Mythological Era, the two deities remained as constant rivals, yet Poseidon almost always lost the disputes. When Zeus abandoned the Earth, leaving Athena to rule and watch over mankind, the God of Seas immediately rebelled against the Goddess, starting the first Holy War. The two have been mortal enemies ever since.
