Formerly Witches' Realm
In Ancient Greek mythology, the Gorgons were three sisters with snake hair, tusks, wings, and various other animal traits. Modernly, they are almost always simplified to their snake attributes. Stheno was the oldest, followed by Euryale, with Medusa, the most iconic and mythological original, the youngest. The term "gorgon" is thought to come from the Ancient Greek word "γοργός"/"gorgós", which means "ugly", "terrible", etc. Soul Eater takes the three monstrous sisters concept, but mixes it up by replacing Stheno and Euryale with Arachne, inspired by the spider-origin myth of Arachne, and Shaula, named after the tailtip star of the Scorpius constellation.
Insignia & ThemeEdit
The family's insignia and theme seems to be a simple arrow, indicated by the use of the Vector Arrow spells as well as some of the clothing for the Gorgon Sisters containing it and choice of architecture within structures known for their dwelling.
