Poseidon is one of the Lords of Kobol who is known as the god of the sea.

Gaius Baltar mentions this God along with Zeus and Aphrodite in his talk with Tracey Anne (He That Believeth In Me).

Brooks has a pendant for this deity around his neck, which he puts to his lips and whispers a prayer to after Raptor 718 jumps behind the red line, soliciting comments from both Eights (The Face of the Enemy, Episode 2).

Notes

  • In Greek mythology, Poseidon is the god of the sea, as well as horses, and is also known for being the god of earthquakes.
