Cult of Personality: Euryale is self-centered and vain in the extreme, appeals to her vanity almost always work. She is legendarily prideful and conceited. Her ego and pride means that she refuses to ever seek assistance, she won't admit to her own wrongdoing, and it almost always means the end of her schemes.
Say My Name!: Euryale's ego means that she is instantly and irrevokably angered by anyone who dares call her "Medusa."
Motivation: Euryale wants power. Power over others, power over nations, power over the elements, power over the whole of creation. It matters little, so long as Euryale has it and others do not.

Euryale Phorkídos (Greek: Εὐρυάλη "far-roaming"), is the very same one found in Greek mythology. The second eldest of the Gorgons, the three sisters were daughters of the primordial sea god and goddess Phorcys and Ceto. Her youngest sister, Medusa, was slain by Persus about a thousand years before the Common Era. Her eldest sister, Stheno, went missing sometime during the Fourth Crusade. Euryale was mostly quiet during the last few centuries herself, but emerged from seclusion in the 1980s as the leader of an organized crime syndicate and chthonic cult.
Euryale has clashed with Europa and the rest of the WOTAN Network numerous times, since she's determined to take over the world and like Alexander, Caesar, and Napoleon, she has decided to start with Europe.
And her we have a Vandal Savage-type foe for the European superteam I've been posting, a fun combination of a physical treat and a few potent super-powers. And yes, Euryale's nasty scream is straight out of the Greek myths.
