Bio:

Neptune as well as being god of the sea, is also known as the “Earth Shaker” because when he strikes the earth in anger he causes mighty earthquakes and he uses his trident to stir up tidal waves, tsunamis and sea storms.

It is used for spear fishing and as a military weapon. As a weapon, the trident is prized for its long reach and ability to trap other long-weapons between prongs to disarm their wielder. In Rome, in a parody of fishing, tridents are famously used by a type of gladiator called a retiarius or “net fighter”. The retiarius is pitted against a secutor, and casts a net to wrap his adversary and then uses the trident to kill him.
