The Louts- Eaters: Also known as Lotophagi. While Odysseus and his men were returning from his journey from Troy, Zeus had created this storm to Fleet him to Cape Malea (Lotus- Eatersland). When Odysseus made it onto the island, he sent two of his men to get food, that?s when they found the lotus fruit. The Lotus-Eaters were creatures that appeared to look very innocent, with looking like normal human beings. Odysseus and his men had lived on the sweet, intoxicating fruits of a tree, producing its lotus-like flowers. They got this name due to their unique properties and that kept them in a state of forgetfulness. So when the men ate the fruit, they all just stopped caring and were constantly lazy and forgetting things.
