(Greek Deity) GERAS

Son of Erebus and Nyx. Geras is the Greek God of Old Age.

Looking like a shrivelled prune there's no mistaking Mr Old Age but although he visits everyone eventually info about him is as thin on the ground as the hair on his head.

Having dug the dirt i've come to the conclusion that a visit from Geras brings instant senile dementure, and possibly memory loss, which could explain why no-one can recall any of his exploits, and even if they could no-one would believe them!

His eternal opposite is Hebe, the Greek goddess of youth and cup-bearer of the gods on Olympus, and he's often spotted with Heracles... normally on vases... but the reason seems to be lost in the mists of time.
