HYPNOS

Greek God of : Sleep
Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome : Somnus

The Greek God of sleep.

Hypnos once did Hera a huge, not to mention life threatening, favour by putting Zeus into a dreamy sleep so she could have another go at his favourite son Heracles, this time trying to do away with him as he sailed back from Troy.

Risking the wrath of Zeus wasn't the brightest idea and he would've been booted into the sea if his mother Nyx hadn't intervened. The potential threat of complete darkness spared Hypnos this time but there was no way he was going to cross Zeus again, no matter how many times Hera asked him.
