The Trident's creation.

"But King Poseidon gambled that they could be stopped."
"He gathered nearly all of the ambient mystical energy on Earth, then forged it into a single weapon. The power of the Trident served to banish the Old Ones from our realm.

The Trident of Poseidon was a magical Atlantean trident.


King Poseidon used nearly all the mystical energy of the planet to forge the trident, the only weapon that could defeat the Old Ones. Poseidon was successful, but Atlantis sank beneath the waves as a result of Poseidon's actions.

Thereafter, the trident was borne by the sovereign of Atlantis.
