In Greek mythology, Thoosa was a sea nymph associated with dangerously swift currents. Thoosa was described as the daughter of Phorcys with no mother mentioned. According to some versions, Thoosa mother was Ceto { Phorcys sister and wife}.  Thoosa was described as a mermaid-like woman with the serpentine-tail of a fish in place of legs.
                                           Thoosa had an affair with sea god, Poseidon. She became the mother of the Cyclops Polyphemus by Poseidon.
