Calypso

In Greek mythology the nymph Calypso was exiled on the island of Ogygia by Zeus for supporting the defeated Titans in their war against the Olympian gods.
According to Homer’s Odyssey on his journey home from the Trojan Wars Odysseus was shipwrecked and washed up on the shore of Ogygia where he was detained by the lonely Calypso for seven years. She fell deeply in love with him and promised him immortality to stay with her, but Odysseus could not bear being separated from his wife, Penelope
His patron goddess Athena intervened and persuades Zeus to order Calypso to free Odysseus, which she bitterly agreed to. Calypso provided Odysseus with tools and wood to build a boat. While Athena set the wind behind his boat as he departs, Calypso stands proudly but sadly watching Odysseus’s boat sail away, contemplating what might have been.
