Gorgon is based on the Gorgons of Greek Mythology, the most prominent examples being the daughters of Phorcys and Ceto. The three sisters are Stheno, Euryale, and Medusa, the last of which is who Gorgon seems to be primarily based on. The story of Medusa varies, but the common detail is that Medusa was transformed by Athena, after being raped by Poseidon in Athena's temple, where her beautiful hair became serpents and her face changed to be hideous that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone. Unlike her sisters Medusa was mortal, she died when the hero Perseus went to her cave to slay her. After she was beheaded, her children Pegasus and Chysaor, were born.
