Medusa was actually a very pretty woman at first. She was a priestess of Athena, all of whom had to take a vow never to love, get married or have children. one day Poseidon came to the temple to see Medusa and ended up raping her. Athena was angered, but not at Poseidon. as a fellow god, in her eyes, he could do no wrong. she was angry at Medusa. in a moment of rage, Athena cursed Medusa to be not only ugly, but so ugly that anyone who should gaze upon her eyes would be turned to stone. and then Athena banished her to live out the rest of her life at the edge of the River that is the entireness to the underworld.
