A daughter of Gaia and Uranus, the Titan Tethys married her brother Oceanus.  She gave birth to all the rivers of the Earth as well as the Oceanids, nymphs scattered across the earth.

She saves Aesacus, the only son of Priam, the last king of Troy, and Arisbe from death.  Depressed, he tried to drown himself in the sea, and Tethys turns him into a diver bird.
