Odysseus was a legendary Greek king of Ithaca and a hero of Homer's epic poem the Odyssey. Odysseus also plays a key role in Homer's Iliad and other works in that same Epic Cycle.
Husband of Penelope, father of Telemachus, and son of Laërtes and Anticlea, Odysseus is renowned for his brilliance, guile, and versatility, and is hence known by the epithet Odysseus the Cunning. He is most famous for the ten eventful years he took to return home after the decade-long Trojan War and his famous Trojan Horse ploy to capture the city of Troy.
Calypso appears in the episode Odie-ssey. Calypso was a beautiful red-haired nymph who fell in love with Odysseus when he was shipwrecked on her island. She wanted him to live with her forever, but she eventually let him go.
- Odysseus is the grandson of Autolycus, who chose his name.
