Historical Background

In Greek mythology, the Telchines were the original inhabitants of the island of Rhodes, and were known in Crete and Cyprus. They were regarded as excellent metallurgists. By some accounts, their children were the goddesses Ialysa, Kamira and Linda. The Telchines raised Poseidon and were associated with the Cyclopes, Dactyls and Curetes. The gods killed them because they turned into evil wizards. Clearly, the Telchines apparently lost one of the titanomachias. Alternatively, there were nine Telchines, children of Thalassa and Pontus. They had flippers instead of hands and dogs' heads; they were known as fish children.

There are 2 groups called Telchines in Greek mythology. The first refers to a category of sea monster (Ketos) where they were creatures with the heads of dogs and the bodies and flippers of seals. The second refers to a group of 4 mysterious magicians/smiths who resided on the islands of Rhodes and Keos, who invented the art of metallurgy and were reported to have crafted the adamantium sickle wielded by Kronos and the trident wielded by Poseidon. This group was reported to have angered Zeus, who cast them under the sea or into Tartarus. Their name may mean "maligners".
