"THALASSA" IS THE GREEK GODDESS OF THE SEA, THE PRIMORDIAL ESSENCE OF THE OCEAN; HER NAME MEANS 'SEA'. SHE IS THE MOTHER OF ALL FISH AND SEA MAMMALS, AND HER BODY AND HER WOMB ARE THE VAST SEA ITSELF. SHE IS THE DAUGHTER OF HEMERA (GODDESS OF THE DAY) AND AETHER (GOD OF LIGHT), TWO OF THE FIRST BEING THAT WERE CREATED. IN SOME OF THE OLDER GREEK TALES, SHE, ALONG WITH HER HUSBAND, PONTOS (GOD OF THE SEA) IS THE MOTHER OF THE MONSTERS KNOWN AS THE TELCHINES...SEA DEMONS WITH THE HEAD OF A DOG AND FLIPPERS AS THEIR HANDS.

SHE IS A MUCH MORE PRIMITIVE AND INHUMAN POWER THAN THE OTHER SEA GODDESSES WE KNOW..AND WHILE MANY OF THE SEA DEITIES WERE VERY SOCIAL IN THEIR CHAOS, THALASSA WAS FAR MORE ISOLATED; SHE WAS A VAST, LONELY SEA. HENCE, SHE IS KNOWN AS THE GODDESS OF THE LONELY SHORES. SHE IS THE MOTHER OF US ALL.
