Medusa was a major character in Legend Quest and primary antagonist of the episode "Ghost of Medusa". She was a member of the Gorgon race who had the unique ability to turn all those who gazed into her eyes into stone. Combine that with her wicked personality and she was such a threat that the gods Zeus, Hermes and Athena all equipped Perseus with divine objects, the Adamantine Sword, Winged Sandals and Bronze Shield respectively, to aid him in his quest.

Medusa was challenged by Perseus, who even with the gifts from the gods, was unable to muster the courage to truly fight her. Instead, the cowardly hero had her see her own reflection in his bronze shield, beheading her. As an immortal witch, she could only be hurt by godly weapons but still coudn't die.
Personality and traitsEdit
Medusa's personality appears to be one of utter evil and cruelty. She has no regard for the lives of neither humans nor elves and appears to petrify such unlucky folk for no real reason other than the fact that she can. In addition to her love for killing, Medusa is shown to be devilishly cunning and even creative, such as when she tried to trick Teodora into seeing her eyes and using her now decapitated head in order to petrify several Pompeiians at once.
Medusa has also been shown to be quite intelligent and appears to have some knowledge of mechanics and engineering, given her elevator-like object in her cave at Mount Vesuvius.
