Thassa is the God of the Sea on Theros.

Description[edit | edit source]

Thassa is associated with aquatic creatures, the "secrets of the briny deep", ancient knowledge, murmurs, gradual change, the passage of time, introspection, vast distances, long voyages, far-ranging searches and patterns. Her most overt role is that of a sea goddess, and gradually changing the world's coastlines. Thassa wielded the bident Dekella, until it was stolen by the planeswalker Kiora.[1] Tritons and the humans of Meletis comprise most of Thassa's worshippers, as well as all who venture out to sea, whether for exploration, commerce, or war.

Inspiration[edit | edit source]

The character of Thassa is inspired by a conflation of various greek aquatic deities, most notably by Poseidon, god of the sea. She is also close to the primordial goddess of the sea Thalassa (even with name).
