Skylla was a monstrous creature in Greek mythology, said to haunt a narrow channel with Charybdis on the other side of it. She was depicted as a monster, with mouth full of sharp teeth, a spiked tail, and a waist whence sprouted canine heads.
When the Adrestia and her crew approached the Pirate Islands, specifically Keos, Herodotos joked about Barnabas' suggestion for carefulness with a comment about Charybdis and Skylla waiting at the bottom of the sea. Barnabas corrected that the reason for care were the pirates patrolling the seas around the islands.
The pirate ship Shadowed Nymph bore Skylla's image as her figurehead, and Phila, a member and a magi of the Order of the Storm, commanded a trireme named after Skylla during the Peloponnesian War.
- To be "between Scylla and Charybdis" is an idiom akin to "between a rock and a hard place."
- A cosmetic pack for the ship Adrestia can be bought from the Helix Store called Charybdis & Skylla Naval Pack, featuring Skylla as the figurehead as well as on the sail in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey.
- Skylla and Charybdis feature in Homer's Odyssey as one of the obstacles faced by Odysseus during his adventures.
