Cyclops was a one-eyed Giant from Ancient Greece. He lived in a cave at the foot of Mount Etna. He was slain by the Greek hero, Odysseus, who used several sheep to help him do this task.
Behind the scenes
- Cyclops is based on Polyphemus, a cyclops that appears in Greek mythology, most prominently in Homer's Odyssey. In the Odyssey, Polyphemus was not slain by Odysseus, but merely blinded; and cyclopses are a separate species from giants.
