The Achelous wiki last edited by mikex20 on 08/09/13 10:33PM View full history

Once a chief River God, Achelous is the son of the Titans Oceanus and Tethys. Achelous traveled to Claydon to search for the daughter of King Oeneus and Queen Althea, a mortal named Deianira. Deianira was also an interest of Hercules and so, Achelous challanged him for Deianira's hand in marriage. As the battle raged on, Achelous transformed into a bull and charged at Hercules.
