(Greek Mortal)ERYSIKHTHON

Also known as ERYSICHTHON

The war-loving King of Thessaly. He had bucket fulls of strength so during irksome outbreaks of peace he would ease the boredom by battle-axing the nearest tree.

Having ploughed right through the sacred grove of Demeter so he could build a posh food court, Erysikhthon was inflicted with a nasty case of eternal hunger courtesy of the grain goddess and her sidekick, Famine..

He sold his possesions, his palace, even his children to keep him in chow. In fact he kept on selling the same child. Meter was blessed with shapeshifting powers and Erysikhthon thought he had an eternal meal ticket when she kept turning into a bird and flying right back home. Everything was tickedy-boo until she met a man she quite fancied staying sold to and the pennyless king was so hungry he had to eat himself.
