OriginThe son of Zeus and Plute/Plouto. Granted special privilege by the Olympian gods, Tantalus was allowed to sit at their table, and feast and wine with them. He would also host the Olympian gods on Earth. Ill advised actions, and ill fated ideas, Tantalus killed and served his own son Pelops as a dish for the gods to eat. The gods once aware of this act, undoing it, bringing back Pelops from death and dismemberment.
Tantalus punishment for such a taboo act, to live in Tartarus, cruelly tempted by water he can never drink, or food he can never eat, both objects however always around him.
