Caucasian Eagle

CaucasianEagle

The Caucasian Eagle

The Caucasian Eagle is a giant bird who was ordered by Zeus to eat the liver of the imprisoned Titan Prometheus every day as punishment for the Titan's disobedience. After so many years together, it seemed that Prometheus and the Eagle had formed an unwanted casual relationship where they would casually talk about how annoying their routine is and how the Eagle has grown bored of eating nothing but Prometheus' liver to the point where he even brought an onion with him to add flavor to it, much to Prometheus' annoyance. When Prometheus was freed by Hercules, Hades transformed the Eagle into a fire bird to subdue him, which the Eagle appreciated as he could now eat the liver fried. In the end, Hercules managed to subdue the Eagle and convince his father to free Prometheus. As a result, he could no longer do his routine with the Titan. He was voiced by Jerry Stiller.


Gorgon
