Phorcys is a water god, and the father of Medusa, and Stheno and Euryale. He is the wife of Ceto. Like his wife, he loves the immortals, Stheno and Euryale more than he loves Medusa, for she is not immortal like them. Although, instead of treasuring her individuality, including her hair being turned into snakes and completely transforming her, he does not care.
Phorcys, like Ceto, doesn't care of Medusa but loves her other sisters instead.
