10.7 - Sedna the Sea Goddess
According to one Inuit myth, Sedna was a child with an enormous appetite who tried to eat her father's arm while he was asleep. When he awoke, her father put Sedna in a boat and took her out to sea. He tried to throw her overboard, but she clung tightly to the side of the boat, and her father cut off her fingers. These fingers became seals in the sea. She tried again and he cut off her hands, which become walruses. She made one last attempt to climb aboard the boat but her father cut off her forearms, which transform into whales. She sank to the bottom of the sea, where she guards the spirits of the dead.
Read a book with one of these words in the title or subtitle: whale, seal, sea, lion. Plurals, possessives, compound words that preserve the meaning (whaleship), and verb tense variations (sealed) all work.

These don't work
Storm Season season is not a compound word or variation of sea

No, season is not a variation of sea- variations are verb tenses and forms of the word

Jennifer Notes on a Cowardly Lion The Biography of Bert Lahr, With a New Preface by the Author by John Lahr

Will this work for Lion?

Or is there an extra comma and it should be sea lion?
