(Greek Spirit) EURYDICE

The Dryad Nymph who married Orpheus... and died on their wedding day.

While running away from Aristaeus and his angry looking bees she was bitten by a snake and died, but was granted permission to leave the underworld after a sing-song from her hubby Orpheus plucked at the heart strings of everything in the land of the dead.

There was a condition, however, and he couldn't look at her until they reached the surface. Unfortunately Hades map sent them back via the scenic root and passing through a forest thick with fallen pine needles the talented musicians ears lost track of his wives footsteps behind him. He turned around to see her disappear in a puff of smoke. She's now stuck in the underworld and wears a label which reads - 'do not remove... ever.'
