OriginEdit

Calypso was a sea nymph, and daughter of Tethys and Oceanus. During his journey, Odysseus was marooned on Calypso's island for seven years. She enchanted him with her charms, until he could no longer bear to be away from his wife and son. She had grown to love him during his stay, but the gods ordered her to let Odysseus go.

EffectsEdit

When the conch is blown, it lets out a melancholy sound. Those that hear it, except for the user, will feel intense loneliness. Those affected will long to be with their loved ones, and go to any lengths to return to them.

CollectionEdit

James McPherson collected the artifact from a seaside resort that was about to go out of business. It seems that the guests and employees kept leaving early right after the Aqua Showcase, which featured a man blowing into a conch shell.
