(Greek Spirit)AEGINA

Also known as AIGINA
Class : Nymph
Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome :

Naiad daughter of Asopus and Metope.

Aegina was much loved by Zeus, but she didn't know it until he took the form of a giant eagle, snatched her up and she found herself dumped in the middle of a desert island with nothing but a few trees and a new born son for company. Zeus was such a smooth mover.

The Island was Oenopia, but Zeus went out of his way to make it more comfy. He renamed it Aegina in her honor and their son, Aeacus, became king, which is all well and good, but a king needs royal subjects to push around so Zeus turned the ants of this uninhabited island into humans.

Things turned bad as soon as Sisyphus gave away to the top secret location in exchange for a paltry fountain. Asopus was the furious father who turned out to be no match for Zeus's thunderbolts, and Hera was so jealous she sent a plague of pestilence to ravage the island. But at least Sisyphus got his come-uppance and is still paying a pretty heavy price for being such a tell-tale-tit.
