Odysseus and Telemachus – Father and Son Relationship: In The Odyssey, I noticed that there were a lot of father and son relationships between a very good amount of characters in the story. For example, Poseidon and his son Polyphemus, Odysseus and Laertes, and the most important one, Odysseus and Telemachus.

However, the gods don’t have control over a legacy, as storytelling is a human activity.
