Triton

In Greek mythology, Triton was described as the son and messenger of Poseidon, king of the seas, and his wife Amphitrite, queen of the seas. Triton was represented as a merman, having the upper body of a human and the tail of a fish. In some versions, Triton was described to live with his parents, Poseidon and Amphitrite, in a golden palace on the bottom of the sea.
