TELESPHORUS

Class : Convalescent Healing
Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome :

Brother of Hygeia who learnt the healing trade from his dad, Dr. Asclepius.

Draining your own life-force into bottles and dishing it out to sick and needy in the hope that they make it through the night doesn't exactly scream 'confidence'. But thats exactly what Telesphorus did. That and pray.

If he was doing this in his own practice i could understand it, but apparently he worked for his dad. Proud father? Maybe not.

Still, the peasants must have been happy and his mug pops up on many a coin looking all shifty in his cloak and flat cap.

There was also a Telesphorus on Mount Carmel. Originally a hermit he became Bishop of Rome from about 126-137 c.e.
