(Greek Deity) ECHO

Greek Goddess of : Echos
Attributes : Unknown
Festival Days :
When in Rome : n/a

Echo was an OREIAD Nymph and a real chatter box, so while Zeus was away philandering and fornicating he gave her the utterly important task of distracting his wife.

Echo did this by bombarding Hera's ears non stop with any old gibberish that came to mind until Zeus had finished sowing his divine oats, which was all hunky-dory until Hera got wise.

With her lips now wiped of speech as punishment chatting up the opposite sex was nigh on impossible. Echo fancied Narcissus but he became so bored with the one sided chit-chat that he stared at his own reflection in a puddle until he died of old age, and quite possibly coined the phrase 'narcisist' in the process.

Echo almost wasted away with grief but she still had the strength to knock back a horny old goat god called Pan which his loyal sheppards took badly on his behalf.

They ripped her into little pieces and scattered them far and wide, now all that remains of echo is the echo and she'll always have the last word if the acoustics are right.
