(Greek Mortal) ALECTRYON

The sleepy sentinel, assigned the utterly important task of keeping a look out for daybreak.

The reason for his recruitment was simple - Ares and Aphrodite were going at it like rampant rabbits, but there was a tiny stumbling block... she was married to Haphaestus at the time.

Unfortunately Alectryon fell asleep on the job and with the sun-light now turned on the canoodling Gods were sprung by Helios and his charioteer Apollo. Their secret was a secret no more.

Alectryon was turned into a rooster by the red faced war God and is a bit more reliable these days, making sure he is up at the crack of dawn to crow and warn of the impending sunrise.
