My Kind of Typhon Typhon, the Titan god of wind, is described as the most horrible and grotesque creature in Greek mythology, and threatens the Olympian gods and all of mankind in The Last Olympian. Draw your version of Typhon to the right based on the way Percy describes him in the book, as detailed below: • Typhon’s head shifts constantly — at each moment he is a different monster. • Humanoid, with skin like “a meatloaf sandwich that has been in someone’s locker all year” • He is “mottled green, with blisters the size of buildings and blackened patches.” • His hands are human, but with an eagle’s talons. • His legs are scaly and reptilian.
