(Greek Spirits) NOSOI

Also known as NOSOS

The spiteful Greek spirits of illness, plague and pestilence.

When Prometheus stole the sacred fire from Olympus so humans could cook, keep warm and set fire to things... twice, Zeus commisioned Hephaestos to create a spangly box then stuffed it with Nosoi and sent it to Pandora - wife of Prometheus's brother Epimetheus - in an attempt to even the score.

Zeus knew that no woman could ever resist opening a jewel encrusted casket, especially if she had been given strict instructions not to, and sure enough she lifted the lid to take a little peak and the Nosoi flew out to fill the world with pain and misery. It's all her fault.
