  • Zeus
    • Where did he appear in the book?
      • At the beginning of the fifth book, when forfilling Athena's wishes.
        • After speaking to Athena, Zeus grants her wishes by ordering Calypso to release Odysseus from her island but does this through Hermes, and not as a personal message.
          • Calypso is reluctant to do this.
            • She may not want to do this as she is a desendent of the Titans and Zeus is an Olympian. This means she may not have much respect for Zeus as he and the other Olympians overthrew the Titans in a great battle.
            • Because it is not a personal message, Calypso may not wish to do this because she does not believe Hermes.
