Behind the scenes

  • Odysseus is based on the Greek hero of legend.
  • It is unknown if the Harry Potter version of Odysseus ever met Circe, as his legendary counterpart did.

Etymology

  • The name Odysseus was probably derived from the Ancient Greek verb odussomai, meaning "hate", suggesting that the name could be rendered as "the one who is wrathful/hated," this interpretation is reinforced by Odysseus's and Poseidon's mutual wrath in Homer's The Odyssey.
