I’ve found Minyas’s mother! She’s one of the 3000 Oceanides with little history except that she was Poseidon’s nurse and her name, Kapheira or Capheira (Ka-fer-a), means Storm-Breath; related in some way to the Telchines, a family, a class of people, or a tribe, who descended from Thalassa or Poseidon.
Not sure who Thalassa was (maybe the first Europa) but, in my way of thinking, this could be a class of people who believed in keeping their race pure. Fits perfectly with my next segment of MYTH where Minyas builds a stone city and fathers three daughters by a red princess in
First sentence: (One of Minyas’s brothers speaking) “Oh, don’t pay attention to what Mother says. Every word out of her mouth causes trouble for someone, somewhere. That’s why Grandfather calls her Storm-breath. You’ll never please her. Do as you like and forget it. Come; let’s see those cracks in the limestone that you talked about .”
Last sentence: (Kafera speaking to Minyas when she sees his latest granddaughter in Orchomenus, and puts a curse on her.) “I curse you and I curse the children that your spawning in foreign waters brings into this family!” With that, Minyas’s mother stormed out of the room and left Thessaly forever.
