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.
  • The fantasy novel The Sea of Monsters is partially based on the story of Odysseus. Many enemies Odysseus faced in the myth reappear in this novel, including Circe and Polyphemus.

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.
