(Greek Deity) PHILYRA

Goddess of : Sea
Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome :

Minor sea deity who turned herself into a mare to avoid Cronus.

The pitter-patter of Chirons little hooves nine months later suggest that her plan wasn't a complete success, despite her son being the only Centaur not sired by Ixion, but her hardluck tale doesn't end there...

Philyra hated being a horse, liked Chiron even less, and craved a release from her pesky four footed form. She wanted to live a life of solitude and independance and after one more shot at melting Cronus' stone cold heart he finally obliged... and turned her into a Linden tree.

In keeping with her life of suprises this isn't quite what she had in mind but let it be a lesson to you... be careful what you wish for.
