5. cyclops


In Greek mythology,  a cyclops is a one eyed giant usually armed with a club.

 

Cyclopes are considered to be Poseidon's (the Greek god of the sea) sons, but in other myths it is said that they are the sons of Titans Uranus and Gaia.

 

It is said that they lead lawless lives, not fearing the gods and killing any man who stepped onto their island. 

 

The word "cyclops" means round eye. 

 

The most well known cyclops is Polyphemus who was tricked and blinded by Odesseus.
