Case File: Scylla vs. Circe

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Scylla) accuses Defendant (Circe) of unlawful transformation. When the fisherman-turned-sea god, Glaucus, fell in love with the unwilling nereid Scylla, Glaucus came to ask Circe for a love potion. Unfortunately, Circe fell in love with Glaucus, and when he refused her, she gave him a potion that transformed Scylla into a horrible monster.

Case Status: Case pending. Every time investigators are sent to question Circe, she transforms them into some kind of animal.
