In my freshman year, in English one, we read the Odessy (which I thought was good, but not a lot of people liked it). We had to research all the Gods and Godesses in the book, and I had to do Calypso. So I will try to be as helpful as possible
Calypso: She lives on an island of Ogygia, where she detained Odysseus (the main character) for several years. She is generally said to be the daughter of the Titan Atlas. She sings to the "prisoner" and enchants them to make them stay forever.
Scylla and Charybdis: Scylla was a six headed monster, with three rows of sharp teeth in each mouth, who lured sailors to eat them. Her weapon was a whirlpool called Charybdis. She was originally a very beautiful woman, but when Amphitrite found out that she was claimed by Poseidon, Amphitrite turned Scylla into the six headed beast.
Helios: The Sun God. Odysseus and his crew landed on the Thrinacian island and ate some of the cattle belonging to the Sun God. Helios' daughters (the guardians of the fields) told him, and Helios went to Zeus. Zeus heard of what Odysseus and his men did, and he struck their ship with his lightening bolt.
Athena: Daughter of Zeus. She is the goddess of wisdom, purposeful battle, and the womanly arts. She assists Odysseus and Telemachus with divine powers throughout the Odyssey. She speaks up for them in the councils of the gods on Mount Olympus. She often appears in disguise as Mentor, an old friend of Odysseus. Some say that she was born out of Zeus' forehead, because he had swallowed her pregnant mother (Metis).
Poseidon: God of the seas. He despises Odysseus because Odysseus blinded his son (the Cyclops Polyphemus).was chosen as Poseidon's domain. He is one of the three brothers: Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades. Here is a link for a list of his "lovers" and offspring on Wikipedia (if it helps) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poseidon
The list is more towards the bottom of the page.
Zeus: King of Gods and men. He helped weigh the fates of men and rules the gods. His symbols are the thunderbolt, eagle, bull, and oak. He killed the guard that guarded the brothers of Cronus, the Gigantes, the Hecatonchires and the Cyclopes. The Cyclops gave him his famous lightening bolt. Was born in Crete, Greece some Grecians say)
Rory listen she's not dead. *Actually* she is dead. But its not the end of the world. Well it is the end of the world. Actually its the end of the universe.
Sweet surrender, what a night!
