Charybdis, the ancient Greek mythological monster, has just been revealed to be a new Smite God in its already giant roster of playable characters.
For those who aren’t in the know, Charybdis is a giant sea creature that is often alongside the sea monster Scylla (who is also a playable character) and has been featured in several epic battles between legendary Greek heroes.
It looks like Titan Forge Games took creative liberties when designing Charybdis. She is shown as not a giant worm-like creature which is her usual depiction but leans more towards a human personification of the beast. They’ve even gone so far as to give her armor and heterochromia. They did manage to keep some of her mythos intact by showing her attacking wandering ships and Roman soldiers in her trailer.
Charybdis’ reveal trailer can be found here:
