(Deity) ZAGREUS

The short-lived Prototype Dionysus.

His first life was set to be his best as Zeus sat him on the big seat on Olympus and gave him thunderbolts to play with. But it all went horribly wrong when Hera tipped off the Titans and they tyced him away from his lethal weapons with a box full of toys.

Zagreus was chopped up and stewed but Zeus managed to rescue his heart and he turned it into a smoothie for Semele. The new and improved Dionysus was conceived but things went from bad to worse when Hera kicked her hostility up a couple of dozen notches.

Rumour has it Zagreus's little dangly bits were found by the Kabeiroi who hid them in a sacred cave and instituted the Samothrakian Mysteries in his honour. But the mysteries being mysteries how do we know if this rumour is true?
