Triton was the son of Poseidon, the Greek god of the Oceans and his wife Amphitrite. He lived with his parents in the depths of the seas and served as a messenger for Poseidon.
Triton was a sea god with the form of a merman who had the head and torso of a man and the tail of a fish. Triton was often depicted with a horn in his hands or blowing a conch shell.
Triton had tremendous power that could move entire countries and calm seas. He even took part in the battle of the Olympian Gods with the Giants and helped to drive them away. Furthermore, like Proteus and Nereus, Triton possessed the additional gift of prophecy.
