Medusa is a legendary monster with living venomous snakes in place of hair, whose gaze can turn her victims to stone . Sometimes she is referred to as Queen Medusa , which endows her with power over all snakes and knowledge of secrets long forgotten. She is one of the three Gorgon sisters (the other two being Stheno and Euryale ) and the only one to be mortal. She has appeared in nearly every Castlevania game to date and is generally portrayed as having a serpent tail from her waist down, like the Lamia , although she has also appeared only as a giant head.

Besides Medusa herself, several floating Medusa Heads appear as normal enemies in most games. According to many games' descriptions, all of these creatures were born from the head of Medusa, in some cases spawned from her severed head.

The three Gorgon sisters, Medusa , Stheno and Euryale, were all children of the ancient marine deities Phorcys and his sister Ceto , chthonic monsters from an archaic world. Their genealogy is shared with other three sisters, the Graeae .
