(Greek Creature) XANTHUS

Son of Calaeno the Harpy and Zephyrus the West Wind God.

Xanthus and his brother Balius were Achilles immortal horses, inherited from Pelias who received them as a gift from the Gods when he married Thetis.

Xanthus wasn't afraid to roll his sleeves up and would often un-yoke himself to scrap beside Achilles, which must have come as quite a shock to adversaries. He was an oracle too and could talk until the Furies struck him dumb for tipping Achilles off about his impending doom.

All in all Xanthus was a pretty amazing horse, but very emotional, and would often become a jibbering wreck on the battlefield as he wept for fallen warriors.
